The Captain's Bell holds a place of honour amongst the Wolves Awards as an enduring record of the commitment and leadership of the club's Captains through the years. The Captain and Assistant Captain are nominated and elected at the beginning of each season by a vote of their teammates. Legend has it that anyone who rings the bell without first having their name inscribed upon it shall buy a round for those within earshot.
