It’s that time of year again – we’re on the lookout for the ultimate Wolves superfan.

If you know someone who has gone to extreme levels to support the club they love, we want to hear from you.

Once again we’re looking to honour a Wolves fanatic at this season’s End of Season Awards in May.

Our winner will receive a trophy and have their story told in front of hundreds of fellow fans – as well as the entire Wolves first-team squad – at the glittering annual ceremony.

We want to hear about diehard Wolves fans who have gone above and beyond for the gold and black cause.

Whoever scoops the prestigious accolade will follow in the footsteps of last year’s winner Mark Simmons.

Mark received the award after the Express & Star judges were won over by his extreme devotion, following Wolves despite suffering life-changing injuries as a seven-year-old when he was hit by a car.

The 46-year-old, from Kingswinford, said: “It was a fantastic night. I got to meet the players and manager and former stars like Steve Bull and Don Goodman.

“It is a privilege and honour to receive this award. There are so many Wolves fans out there.”


Mark’s devotion to all things gold and black helped him through his recovery from the accident, which saw him undergo a life-saving operation before slipping into a coma and being left paralysed down his left-hand side. If you think you are someone – or know someone – whose love of Wolves has seen them overcome the odds, or simply know someone whose devotion to Wolves is above and beyond the call of duty, then they could be Express & Star’s Fan of the Season.

Entries are now open and all you need to do is contact us in writing to the Sports Editor, Express & Star, 51-53 Queen Street, Wolverhampton, WV1 1ES with your nomination and reasons.

You can also nominate via email at or contact us via Twitter and our Facebook page. Supporters can nominate themselves or someone else. Please include your name, address and telephone number with your suggestion and their contact details, explaining why you think they deserve the award.

There is no age limit. Nominations must reach us by April 8 and nominees must be free to attend Wolves’ End of Season Awards in mid May (date to be confirmed).

The prize is two VIP places on the Express & Star table that night, as well as a trophy to be presented on stage.

The nominees should also be available to take part in a short film in Wolverhampton during April (date to be confirmed).
