Match-stick of the day! Wolves fan makes model stadium
The 71-year-old hopes the ‘Matchstick Molineux’ will raise some money for prostate cancer charities.
A retired accountant has spent more than 500 hours making a scale model of a football stadium from materials such as matchsticks.
Mr Jepson said it had always been on his bucket list to once again build the old stadium – which he finally completed using matchsticks, coffee stirrers, rabbit hutch wire and other everyday items.
Mr Jepson said: “I always loved the old stadium, there was something about it which was magic to me.
“Being a long-suffering Wolves fan, it’s always been something I’ve had on my bucket list to do – to build a stadium that looked like it did in the old days.
Speaking of his motivation for building the model, Mr Jepson added: “I’ve been a long-suffering prostate cancer patient, been through lots of procedures and operations over the years, and it would be a little bit of a way of giving something back to either the National Health or to prostate cancer research.”
