It looks like Mark Hamill has become a Wolverhampton Wanderers fan by accident

Could the Force help Wolves win promotion?

Football fandom can be based on a number of things, including where you’re born, who you watched growing up, or even which kit takes your fancy – but there can’t be many people who found their club like Mark Hamill did.

The Star Wars actor, who played Luke Skywalker in the legendary films, appears to have chanced upon becoming a Wolverhampton Wanderers fan after some interactions on Twitter.

Hamill replied, clarifying that while he hadn’t intended to become a Wolves fan, it’s certainly not something he regrets.

Of course, the club themselves aren’t going to turn down the opportunity to have the Force on their side.

With Wolves third in the Championship after six games, winning 1-0 at home to Millwall on Saturday, perhaps having a Jedi on hand is already helping.

The 4-4-2 is strong with this one.
