Jimmy & Jack statue unveiled to hundreds of Notts County fans at Meadow Lane

Joe Jones

Hundreds of Notts County fans gathered outside Meadow Lane on Thursday to see the unveiling of the statue of club legends Jimmy Sirrel and Jack Wheeler.

The memorial, situated between the Derek Pavis Stand and the Trent Navigation Inn pub, was revealed to about 200 supporters at midday.

Jimmy and Jack – who took the Magpies from the old fourth division to the English top tier – have been immortalised in bronze after a campaign to raise more than £100,000 was launched in May 2010 following their deaths.

The statue, designed by sculptor Andrew Edwards, depicts former manager Sirrel and trainer Wheeler sitting on a bench in a dugout.
