Gordon Banks statue unveiled at the Britannia Stadium

Premier League club Stoke City have unveiled a statue of goalkeeping hero Gordon Banks. The sculpture, which shows England’s World Cup winner lifting the Jules Rimet Trophy, has been erected on Stanley Matthews Way, outside the Britannia Stadium, Stoke’s home ground.

This statue was actually created in 2008, spending its first five years at Madeley High School before moving to the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery.

Former England and Potters teammate George Eastham, who scored the winning goal in the League Cup Final in 1972 when Stoke City beat Chelsea 2-1 at Wembley, was on hard to remove the covers alongside Majid Khan, the Lord Mayor of Stoke-on-Trent.
