Knollsy action figure sells on eBay for £6,000 as West Ham fans scramble for ‘Angel of Alkmaar’ tribute

An action figure of the West Ham fan who fought off AZ Alkmaar ultras has been sold on eBay for £6,000.

The ‘Knollsy custom figure’ was a one-off, and received 58 bids from supporters who wanted to honour ‘The Angel of Alkmaar’.

Knollsy, real name is Mark Knolls, earned hero status among Hammers fans when he fought off hooded AZ fans who attacked the away stand at the AFAS stadium.

West Ham had just booked their place in the Europa Conference League final when the attack happened, with disturbing scenes showing players getting involved as their families were sat in the stands.

But any progress towards them was stopped by Knollsy, who fended off dozens of hooded fans. He received a ripped shirt and black eye for his troubles.

On his return to the London Stadium for West Ham’s next match against Leeds, the 58-year-old received a standing ovation, and then he was serenaded at a pub he looked close to tears.

He later received tickets for the final from the club, and now has even had an action figure made in tribute.

The item information read: “Knollsy custom figure. I was inspired to make this custom made and handpainted figure with unique matching packaging. 

“It took approx 28hrs [hours] to complete and will look great on display. It is a complete one-off.”

With £6,000 heading to the creators bank account, it’s hard not to imaging a re-release may be on the way…
