Newry City AFC has announced that they will unveil a granite statue of legendary player Ollie Ralph outside the Showgrounds we can reveal.

The move comes after a bronze statue to George Best was unveiled yesterday outside Windsor Park.

We spoke to Ollie Ralph today and he told us:

“I’m a bit surprised that it took them this long to get a statue of me to be honest. They made me an honouree President of the club which was more a pain in the hole to be honest.

I just hope they make it to actually look like me and not like thon Ronaldo bronze bust that made him look like Deirdre Barlow.”
