Billy Bremner Campaign

The Scottish Football Supporters Association have been asked to lead a project to ensure a statue is commissioned honouring the late Billy Bremner in the town he grew up.

The process has begun to select an artist to create the statue. We have a choice of three very talented, renowned artists; David Annand, Malcolm Robertson and Kenny Hunter. The final artist will be selected by a selection panel made up of people from the SFSA, University of Stirling, Raploch Community Council, Stirling Community Enterprise, Tartan Army Magazine and the Leeds United Supporters Groups.

The memorial will hopefully be positioned near to where Billy Bremner grew up on Weir Street, around the corner from the Raploch Community Campus.

Professor Richard Haynes of Stirling University, who developed “Fae Raploch to Elland Road” was quoted as saying; “We were very proud to work with the local community on the cultural heritage project about Bremner. We are delighted to be working with the SFSA and other partners to take the development of a memorial of Bremner in his hometown to the next stage. It is an honour that is more than rightful for a man of Billy Bremner’s stature.”

Every person who contributes will get their name on our Bremner Roll of honour. One lucky person will also be invited to the unveiling ceremony.*

“Leeds and Stirling are two great cities in which Billy Bremner is revered. While he has been immortalised in Leeds, it is about time Bremner is further recognised north of the border in his hometown. It is an honour to be part of the project commemorating the man voted as ‘Scotland’s Greatest Ever Captain.” Alexander Gibb, SFSA Project Manager
