The Jack Cullis statue commissioned by Chairman and President of Wolverhampton Wanderers, Sir Jack Hayward, and was unveiled by Sir Bobby Charlton in June 2003.
James chose Cullis to be shown as the manager of Wolves. He contributed to the glory days of Wolves, three times champions of Division One, twice FA Cup winners and three times League runners-up.
James, himself a keen football supporter through out his life, was no stranger of Jack Cullis’s achievements. Cullis was known as a born leader and described by team mate Tommy Lawton “He had the resilience of a concrete wall, the speed of a whippet and the footwork of a ballet dancer”.
Cullis joined Wolves in 1934 and remained with the club for 30 years. He said,“You only have one life and I gave mine to Wolves”.
