John 'Foz' Hendley (Wolves supporter ) Can't Post or Reply Privately

Just found out John has passed away. Unbelievable news. He has worked at the Wolves for many years on the programme and website. Years ago he worked in the programme shop on the South Bank with John Smith. Before Christmas he spoke at Ratty's funeral service. He also had a impressive Wolves memorabilia collection. RIP

Wolverhampton Wanderers have announced the death of popular staff member John 'Foz' Hendley.

The long serving member of staff was a popular face in the media room at Molineux on match days.

Foz joined the club officially in 1999 but his affiliation with Wolverhampton Wanderers ran for over 50 years, having supported his local team from 15 years of age.

He was a larger than life character, much loved by everybody involved with Wolves and he will be dearly missed by all.

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.

Express & Star

Tributes have been paid to much-loved Wolves employee John 'Foz' Hendley, who has died aged 67.

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 match day programme.

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

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

The club will pay tribute to the late John ĎFozí Hendley ahead of Saturdayís Emirates FA Cup tie against Swansea City following the sad and unexpected news of his passing earlier this week.
Supporters are urged to arrive at Molineux early as a commemorative video will be played on the big screens 15 minutes before kick-off.

After the sides walk out, and shortly before kick-off, a minuteís applause will then be held in Fozís memory. And, during the applause, commemorative wreaths will be placed in front of both the North Bank and the South bank.

As a mark of respect, players will also wear black armbands during the fixture.

As well as members of Fozís friends and family, a list of former players and managers in attendance at Saturdayís game includes: Jody Craddock, Geoff Palmer, Mel Eves, John McAlle, Gerry Taylor, Colin Brazier, Phil Parkes and Dave Jones.

There is a picture of John in the South bank during the last game of 92/93 season against Millwall, the last game the South Bank was a terrace.

Wolves have announced that a memorial service to celebrate the life and contribution to the club made by John ĎFozí Hendley will take place at St. Peterís Collegiate Church, at 1p.m., on Thursday, February 8th.

Lifelong Wolves fan Foz, a long serving employee who officially worked for the club in the media department for almost 20 years, but unofficially for many years previously, sadly passed away at the age of 67 at the start of the year.

The club, and Fozís family, have been inundated with tributes and good wishes following his passing, and now the wider community will be able to pay their respects and celebrate his life at the memorial service.

Foz had many interests, not only Wolves and football, but many other sports, and also folk music, steam trains and memorabilia, to name just a few.

Friends and former colleagues from all of those spheres of his life will be welcome to join Fozís family at the service, which will be led by the Rev. Prebendary David Wright, Rector of Wolverhampton and also Wolves' club chaplain.

A private cremation service will be held in the morning, with the cortege pausing outside Molineux on Fozís final journey at approximately 11a.m. or shortly after.

Any supporters wishing to make a donation in Fozís memory are asked to support the British Heart Foundation or Severn Valley Railway charity.
