Stoke revamp Sir Stan statue

Stoke City are landscaping the area around the Sir Stanley Matthews statue at the Britannia Stadium.

A massive casket containing priceless mementoes of Stoke City's history is also being interred beneath the famous three-figure monument.

"These items will tell the story of our history and tradition over the last 150 years," chairman Peter Coates told The Sentinel, "and in 50 years from now I'll be back to look over it all again and see how we have performed over those 50 years."
