Thanks for all your entries for the competition to win a special print of the Cloughie statue in Nottingham. The competition was launched to mark what would have been Cloughie's 79th birthday. The eye-catching picture, which brilliantly captures Brian's humour, features part of a well-known Cloughie quote and one of Nottingham's famous residents - a pigeon from the market square.

It's been compiled by Nottingham artist Corrina Rothwell, who based the picture around a photo of the statue, which was unveiled by Mrs Clough after a huge fund-raising campaign by fans.

The quote refers to Cloughie's comment which was originally spotted by this website and placed on the Quotes page for posterity. In an interview following his life-saving operation, he said: "Don't send me flowers when I'm dead. If you like me, send them while I'm alive."

Corrina donated the print as a competition prize for this website. She told us: "Brian Clough's statue is so popular that it just had to be featured in my 'From Nottingham With Love' print series. I'm really pleased with how the image works, with the silhouette of the Watson Fothergill building in the background."

The deadline for entries was midnight on April 21st, 2014.

Congratulations to Karl Jackson of Beccles in Suffolk.


He answered correctly that the statue was unveiled by Mrs Clough on November 6th, 2008. Karl e-mailed to say: "Fantastic news. I've never even won anything on a summer fair tombola - never mind anything as exciting as this. The print will look great on my office wall."



The competition to win a signed copy of Cloughie captain John McGovern's book attracted plenty of entries. Retailing at £18.99, the book describes his working relationship with Cloughie, from their days at Hartlepools United through to the European Cup glory years at Nottingham Forest.

The deadline for entries was midnight on December 1st, 2012.
