Hello Jack Leslie Campaign Supporters

Loads of exciting news and updates...

WIN A LIVERPOOL SHIRT SIGNED BY TRENT ALEXANDER-ARNOLD!: We've been gifted this top by the club so The Jack Leslie Raffle (@LeslieRaffle on Twitter) is back with another great prize. More info and how to buy tickets here: https://jackleslie.co.uk/news/signed-liverpool-shirt-raffle/

FREE EVENT: Tomorrow (Thurs) at 7.30pm Greg & Matt join a free live Zoom event with Bill Hern & David Gleave authors of Football's Black Pioneers who have been incredibly helpful sharing their research with us. Book here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/footballs-black-pioneers-tickets-127092114937

STUFF TO READ: We have just published three articles about Jack which are well worth a look, one by Matt about the England call up, another by Bill Hern with some great biographical detail and an excellent stats-filled timeline by John Eales: https://jackleslie.co.uk/jack/

BLACK HISTORY MONTH REVIEW: We had some great activities and coverage on Sky Sports last month (the film is well worth a watch if you haven't seen it)... https://jackleslie.co.uk/news/black-history-month-a-review/

THE STATUE: And the statue itself... we have had many pitches already from sculptors but will be putting our official brief out within the next couple of weeks. Given the importance of that choice of design and artist, we'll be taking our time and working with the family as well as Argyle. We have had very good, initial discussions on site with Argyle on the location etc. and will fill you all in when we have any concrete (and bronze!) news.

Please do follow us on Twitter and Facebook for more regular updates and news. 

Hope you are all safe and well right now. We thank you again for your support.

All best. 

The Jack Leslie Campaign Team.
