Melvyn James “Mel” Eves (born September 10, 1956 in Darlaston) is a former English professional footballer who had a long career playing as a striker and left sided attacker, mostly known for his time with Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Eves was educated at Wolverhampton Grammar School from 1968 to 1975 when he represented England as a Schoolboy International before joining Wolves. He eventually made his debut on 26 November 1977 againstIpswich Town at Molineux in the First Division.
His first goal was at Chelsea in 1978, followed by the winner againstManchester United in the following game and a goal in victory over Aston Villa afterwards. Such a run saw him earn a spot in the England B’s summer tour of 1978, managed by Sir Bobby Robson, where he made three appearances and scored one goal (in a record 8-0 success over Singapore’s full team).
Eves played in Wolves’ 1980 League Cup final triumph over then-European Cup holders Nottingham Forest at Wembley.
He was top goalscorer in 1981/82 (seven goals) as Wolves slumped out of the top flight, but his 18 league goal haul the following year, not only earned him the top goalscorer award again, but saw the team immediately return to Division One.
Financial problems then struck Wolves and saw many players, including Eves, leave after relegation. After a period of time training at Manchester City, recovering from a ruptured Achilles tendon sustained in his last game for Wolves in May 1984, Eves was signed by Sheffield United in December 1984. Here, he played until May 1986 and was also voted ‘Player of the Year’ by fans.
Eves then moved to Gillingham and played two further seasons in the third tier. He retired through injury in May 1989 after a six-month spell at Walsall, aged 32.
Upon leaving the game, Eves became an independent financial advisor (IFA), often dealing with advising young footballers. He became a licensed FA agent in the mid-1990s and became more involved with the agency work, although also running an IFA business. In the 2000s, though, he has focused more on his agency commitments, representing players such as Enzo Maresca, Benito Carbone, Fabrizio Ravanelli, Robert Earnshaw and Gareth McAuley. He now heads up Eleven Sports Management and has working alongside him ex-professional footballers John Williams, Carl Hutchings, Ben Abbey and Chris Marsh.
Eves also had a short stint as manager of part-time non-league Willenhall Town from March 2006 until November 2007 when he resigned through work commitments.Hewon the Birmingham Senior Cup for the first time in the 125 year history of the competition and reached the play-off final in the 2006-07 season eventually losing out in extra time to Bromsgrove Rovers.

Clubs
Darlaston F C
Walsall F C 78 games 9 goals
Willenhall Town F C
Norman Forsyth played for Walsall in at least 8 different positions on the football pitch.
He was playing for Darlaston Football Club when he was spotted, and signed for The Saddlers in July 1891. He was to play initially as a n inside left, he played there for his first season. He then played at Left Half and played there during Walsall first season in the football league. He then played in the forward line for the 1892-93 season, he also played inside left, inside right and centre forward. 1893-94 season started with him playing as a right half, however he soon made his position as Left Half and he stayed there for the most until he left for Willenhall in 1895.
No pictures and very little information available on Norman.

I am a little confused by the stats available for Norman as on recordit states that he only played 78 games and scored 9 goals. However! it seems strange that if the other facts are correct! That he only played 78 games in a career in which hw played so many positions yet played only 78 times which is less than 20 games a season! Any one out there with Ideas why this should be so!
