Wembley squad pictures available now!

Paul Wakeford has produced a special edition print of cartoon images of the Wembley squad (see low res image to get an idea of the layout).

Each print is uniquely numbered and believe it or not under each player's name is an individual signature!

Paul put some miles on the clock of his car driving around to collect the signatures and everyone obliged. The final result is a fine keepsake of the great day in May.

If you want one you will have to hurry as the supply is strictly limited.

The prints are on sale now for £40 framed, and £25 unframed - with one third of each sale going to the 12th Man.

To enquire or to reserve your copy contact Paul by email at

Arguably the biggest 12th Man signing to date was secured over the summer: we are delighted to have helped the club sign Jake Wright on a three-year deal.

So what’s next for the 12th Man? We are finalising some exciting new fund-raising initiatives and merchandise for this season. Meanwhile you can still get involved by being a flag bearer at any home game. For £50 you will get a stadium tour, meet and have photos with Chris Wilder and the team, and lead the players out with the 12th Man flag. If you would like to be a flag bearer email

We aim to keep you up to date with all the latest 12th Man activities on this site.
