Description

Brian Clough Statue, Albert Park Middlesbrough.

A £65,000, 7ft-tall bronze figure of Brian Clough, sculpted by Vivien Mallock, was unveiled on the 16th May 2007, in Albert Park Middlesbrough, by his widow Barbara and children Nigel, Simon and Elizabeth. The Statue shows a 24-year-old Clough with his boots slung over his shoulder striding towards Ayresome Park (Former home to Middlesbrough FC) on his way to training. He also played for neighbouring Sunderland, and went on to score 251 goals in 274 games for the two North East clubs before his career was cut short by injury in the early 1960s. Clough carved out a career as a manager and went on to become one of the game's most colourful characters. He was appointed Hartlepool boss at 30, then the youngest manager in the league. Later he led Derby County and Nottingham Forest to league championships and won two European Cups with the Nottingham club in 1979 and 1980. He was awarded an OBE in 1991. The former player and manager died of cancer in September 2004, aged 69.
