The Nat Lofthouse memorial statue has been completed and will be unveiled on Tuesday 27th August 2013.

Sean Hedges-Quinn, the sculptor behind the statue, has finished a clay version which will now be transported to a foundry in London to be cast in bronze.

Work on the final location of the statue has already begun, with Wanderers confirming they are currently in the process of foundation work at the Reebok Stadium.

Bolton club chaplain Phil Mason said: "We're delighted with Sean's work and feel he has really captured an amazing likeness of Nat.

"The size reflects the magnitude of Nat and the detail is incredible - the muscle tones in his arms and legs reflect the strength of Nat.

"I am sure that the people of Bolton will be very pleased with the work and we cannot wait now to get to the unveiling at the end of August."

Wanderers have also provided their first sneak peak of the statue, courtesy of their official Twitter page (@OfficialBWFC)
