Select very specific wildcards

Hi there. There are so many forums, I' not sure this is in the right place, I apologise if it isn't.

I have a need to run a load of select queries that need to pattern match strings in fields. An example would be [model=p345 [type]=df7854gv3

I need to select * from [table] where [model] match 'ANNN'
And select from [table] where [type] match 'AANNNNAAN'

Where A matches an alpha character and N matches a numeric character.

I've been through all the wildcard and matching articles and I can find and I can't find what I need. Surely there is a placeholder for numeric and alpha?

Many thanks.
