    "The 9 foot bronze statue was unveiled outside St James' Park football ground on May 7th 2012. It was designed by Morpeth artist, Tom Maley who worked closely with Sir Bobby’s family on the design for the statue for over a year before it was cast by Black Isle Bronze foundry in Scotland. Sir Robert William "Bobby" Robson, CBE (18 February 1933 – 31 July 2009) was an English footballer and football manager. His career included periods playing for, and later managing, the England national football team. Robson was the manager of Newcastle United from September 1999 until 30 August 2004. He is held in the highest esteem by the fans and was granted the Freedom of the City of Newcastle upon Tyne on 2 March 2005. He launched the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation in 2008 which has currently raised over £4m for support of cancer services including provision of equipment for the Sir Bobby Robson Cancer Trials Research Centre at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle."
