Bobby Robson – Tom Maley 2012

The 9ft bronze sculpture, which shows Sir Bobby with hands tucked in his suit pockets and one foot on a football. Morpeth artist Tom Maley worked closely with Sir Bobby’s family on the design for the statue for over a year before it was cast by Black Isle Bronze foundry in Scotland. Sir Bobby’s demeanour is captured in the way he is standing, a very real likeness of how he looked.
