A Saint Forever

On Saturday night I went to the unveiling ceremony for the statue of Ted Bates MBE at the Southampton Football Club.

The unveiling of the giant bronze statue marked the end of a three year journey by the Ted Bates Trust, raising money to honour 66 years of service to the club by the man who became known as Mr Southampton.

It was a fantastic evening, with the highlights for me being a video of Ted's life set to the music of Alphaville's "Forever Young", as well as a speach by Lawrie McMenemy.
