A snarling and striking wolf head worth £200 is among the quirky items on sale in the new Wolves merchandising catalogue.

Rubber ducks, gnomes and dog bowls are also for sale in the catalogue, which includes new retro shirts and historical art prints of some of the club’s greatest moments.

A 100-page booklet detailing hundreds of items for sale has been sent out for supporters to take advantage of the club’s autumn and winter range.

One of the undoubted highlights is The Wolf sculpture, which is made of clay and has been moulded and hand-cast using ceramic polystone.

Wolves fan Matt Buckley designed and sculpted the imposing 14in high wolf heads before the firm he works for, Robert Harrop Designs in Ironbridge, approached Wolves to get them on sale in the club shop.

The 42-year-old said it was an honour that the club he supports was now stocking his own creation. “It’s very modern and aggressive and quite a unique piece,” Mr Buckley said. I’ve always wanted to sculpt a wolf and it was a very interesting project.

“We’ve had nothing but positive feedback as well which is brilliant.”

Other pieces in the range include mugs, flags, scarves and clothing, as well as Wolves shirt signed by players which is on sale for £150. A Wolves legends framed picture costs £60, while at the cheaper end of the market is a cuddly meerkat in a Wolves kit for £10.

June Walsh, head of retail at Wolves, said the wolf head was a “striking” item in a quality range of merchandise.

She joined the club after having a similar position at rugby club Saracens and was previously at Tottenham Hotspur FC for nine years. She said: “I’ve been speaking to a lot of supporters to try to get a feel of what they wanted and we’ve come up with some fashionable lines and quality merchandise.

“I want supporters to come into the shop and be proud to own or wear our items on sale.

“The wolf head is a very striking piece and already proving to be very popular.”
