Foz had been a Wolves fan since he was 15 years old and had long been affiliated with the club in a variety of roles.

He officially joined Wolves in 1999 and worked with the club's media team including on the matchday programme.

He was also a keen historian of the club and many supporters will remember him from videos the club produced in the 1990s.

Managing director Laurie Dalrymple said: "The news of Foz’s passing comes as a huge shock to his family and all of us at Wolves.

"He served his boyhood club with unwavering dedication throughout his 19 years as a member of staff and for many years beforehand as a loyal supporter.

"The Wolves family has truly lost one of its own and it will take some time for the club to come to terms with such sad news.”

Foz was a popular member of the Wolves staff

"With the sudden nature of his passing, the club will take time and appropriately pay tribute to Foz in the coming days."

Foz was a regular at every Wolves game, home or away, and attended Saturday's win at Bristol City.

Fans, broadcasters and players took to Twitter to pay tribute.
