Bill McGarry leads Wolves out for the League Cup final at Wembley
Former Ipswich, Wolves and Newcastle manager Bill McGarry has died aged 77 after a long illness.

The former England player took Ipswich into the First Division in 1968, and guided Wolves to the 1972 Uefa Cup final and a League Cup victory in 1974.

He enjoyed less success at St James' Park between 1977-80 and returned for an ill-fated second spell at Wolves, which lasted only 61 days, in 1985.

His funeral will take place on Saturday in South Africa.

McGarry, who started his managerial career with Bournemouth, made nearly 600 league appearances for Port Vale, Huddersfield Town and Bournemouth between 1946 and 1962, scoring 32 goals.
