Keiron Cunningham Sculpture unveiled at St Helens


A SPECTACULAR bronze statue of Saints skipper Keiron Cunningham was unveiled this afternoon – and the great man admitted it was a humbling experience.

A healthy crowd of Saints supporters and passers by gathered as the wraps came off the imposing sculpture, which stands at Chalon Way, opposite the Glass House pub.

St Helens Council commissioned it to honour the achievements of the town’s rugby league club and the pride the club’s success has generated within the town.

Speaking after the unveiling, Keiron, who was joined by family - including his wife Lynette and children Shannah (15) and Jonah (12) - at the event, told the Star: “The statue is absolutely amazing.

“I can’t stop staring at it – I want to take it home and put it in the back garden and keep it all to myself.

“I want to say a big thank you to the council members and everyone who voted for me, to the sculptor Vanessa (Marston) and all the players who have supported me and have been outstanding.
