The £65,000, 7ft tall bronze statue, of a young Brian Clough, stands in Albert Park in Middlesbrough. Apparently Cloughie walked through the park as a lad on his way home from Ayresome Park. The town commissioned the statue and money was raised through a combination of public donations and The Heritage Lottery Fund and took over two years to raise.
Brian Clough will always be remembered by football fans the world over for his achievements not only with Nottingham Forest, but also with that other team down the road.
Indeed that other lot have seen fit to name the Pride Plaza redevelopment after Brian Clough, in honour of his achievements at that club. Our great City has seen fit to name a tram after the great man (#215 to be precise).
There is however work being carried out on a statue to honour 'Old Big Ead' in our City, with funds raised by the Brian Clough Statue Fund. It has reached it's target and is working on the design and location. Hopefully it will be awarded a suitable and prominent position in the City, after all Cloughie put this town on the football map for eternity.
The statue was unveiled in a ceremony led by his widow Barbara and children Nigel, Simon and Elizabeth. Sculptor Vivien Mallock said the statue showing Clough walking through the park with his football boots thrown over his shoulder, had been well received.
Fair play to the people of Middlesbrough.
