Goal celebration (2)

Atyeo Statue – The votes are in!

Thanks to the 1605 people who voted either online or at Ashton Gate for their choice of pose for the John Atyeo statue.

The overwhelming winner with 64% of the vote was big John with his hands in the air celebrating a goal.

Second with 19% was the free kick and third with 17% was him walking out onto the pitch carrying a football.

The fund-raising is well advanced (although it’s still not too late to donate and get your name on the statue plinth) and it has been agreed with Bristol Sport that the statue will be erected in a prominent position at the redeveloped Ashton Gate.

The next step is to select a sculptor, which will progress now at some pace.
