Sir Jack Statue Update | January 2018

The Club has issued an update on the Sir Jack Hayward statue with a view to unveiling the completed figure towards the end of the 2017/18 season.

Today marks three years since Sir Jack sadly passed away at 91 years of age, and the statue commemorating Wolves’ highly-respected former owner, nears completion.

A 10ft clay model of the statue has been approved by the Hayward family and is now with a foundry in Oxfordshire to be moulded into a bronze effigy.

Designed and created by world-renowned sculptor, James Butler, the figure captures the unique celebrations following Wolves’ Play-Off winning final in Cardiff back in 2003. A result that achieved Sir Jack’s dream of returning Wolves to top-flight football after a 19-year absence.

The Club is working closely with the local council to finalise the exact positioning and installation of the statue, with a view to unveiling the final piece towards the end of the 2017/18 season.
