- Bobby Lennox is the UKs second most successful player with 24 Major Honours tied with Kenny Dalglish, that's just 1 Honour behind Ryan Giggs. He is a member of the Lisbon Lion team that won the European Cup in 1967 and played in another European Cup final in 1970, he's lived his whole life in Saltcoats, Ayrshire, a town he loves and we believe there should be a statue erected in the town to show we are proud of a local mans incredible achievements, it's a small area so we need to celebrate excellence when we can.
Bobby won the Scottish league 11 times, the Scottish Cup 8 times, which is still the highest record. The Scottish league cup 4 times.
Sir Bobby Charlton said Lennox was one of the greatest strikers he has seen.
We want to bring some pride into this area, we want people to see the statue and know you can be a big fish from a small pond and go on to do amazing things if you dedicate yourself. The statue and ground work will cost around £35,000, we have only set 5k as a target since we are holding fundraising events in conjunction with this.
