Working closely with the Bowen family, Northampton Town Football Club have commissioned Sporting Icon to produce a permanent and lasting tribute to Dave Bowen.
A bust of the former player, manager, secretary and president is currently in production and will be unveiled outside the PTS Academy Stadium later this year.
"We are delighted to be paying a permanent and lasting tribute to a Cobblers Great," said Chief Executive James Whiting.
"This tribute will be a visual reminder to all those arriving at the stadium about Dave and what he achieved for the club.
"We have worked closely with the Bowen family on this and we will officially unveil the tribute later in the year. We know members of the Bowen family will be travelling from a number of different countries to attend the unveiling and, working to maximise the availability of family members, we will confirm a date for this unveiling in due course.
"We are a club with a very proud history, strong community links and a bright future and we believe this will be a fitting and lasting tribute to a man who achieved so much for the club."
Barry Bowen, Dave's son, has worked closely with the club and Sporting Icon on the production of the bust and he added:
“When saying goodbye to friends and fans, our father often said warmly - ‘See you at the Far Post’, and locating this tribute at the stadium leaves a visible lasting memory not far from the far post. Family members have been involved with and had input into the production process and we hope it means as much to the fans as it does to the family. We are hoping to be able to get the family together later in the year for an official unveiling at the stadium.”
