Memorial to footballing great, Bill Shankly unveiled
at his Ayrshire mining village home, Glenbuck
on what would have been his 101st birthday.
Trico VE fabricated and finished the panels in 1.6mm enamel-grade steel
to the artwork for Seelevel Design for 71 panels in red, black and grey.
Trico also provided two 3D inset panels which stand proud of the surface and
present black & white photos, one showing Bill Shankly during a training session.
Designed by artist John Crosby, with some help from pupils at nearby
Muirkirk Primary School, the memorial won the publicly-funded
commission held by East Ayrshire Council after impressing their
members’ panel which included Shankly’s niece Barbara Alexander.
See below to watch the stages of manufacture: Assembling fabricated
steel panels before enamelling, re-assembled panels after enamelling,

panels being mounted on the frame.
