Trevillion WBA Goal Scoring Legends

Trevillion WBA Goal Scoring Legends

This is your opportunity to purchase a professionally framed, limited edition Paul Trevillion artwork commissioned by Mementos Memorabilia to celebrate five of the greatest West Bromwich Albion Goal Scoring Legends.

Paul Trevillion
Paul Trevillion is a globally acclaimed sports artist who has been acknowledged as 'the Pele of Sporting Art.' He has painted hundreds of sporting legends from around the world in his eighty year sporting art lifetime.

With his extraordinary artistic talent first discovered at school, Trevillion's natural gift in taking the medium of pen and ink to its limitations and beyond, has resulted in a ground breaking career in the world of sporting art which has seen his original work published in the USA, Europe, Australia, Japan and South Africa.

Acknowledged as 'the best black and white artist in the business,' Trevillion has devised and illustrated instructional-based art for almost every national Newspaper in the UK. His breakthrough came in the Sunday People in 1957, with the 'Hey Ref' series. Over sixty years later, his renamed series 'You Are The Ref' is a cult classic football strip which appeared weekly in the Sunday Observer and Guardian Online. Trevillion is recognised as the Roy of the Rovers artist, whose visionary 'Comic Art Realism' style took Roy from a comic football character to a real-life football hero - "a man who never lived, but has lived forever."

Trevillion's art is recognised for it's ability to bring a subject to life, taking a static image and creating a moving figure, earning him the title 'The Master of Movement'. He is the artist and author of over 20 books, which have sold worldwide and his work has been displayed at the FIFA museum, National Football Museum and the Strand Gallery in London.

Trevillion's love of sport has driven his artistic career and, although a Tottenham Hotspur fan, he has been a long time ally of West Bromwich Albion in raising money for the Celebration Statue and as a friend and supporter of Jeff Astle and the Justice For Jeff Campaign.

Commissioning this Artwork
As a lifelong Albion supporter and a great admirer of Trevillion's work, Mementos Memorabilia are honoured to have had such an incredible opportunity to commission this artwork as a tribute to five of the greatest West Bromwich Albion Goal Scoring Legends of modern times. It is a privilege for such a renowned sports artist to capture these Legends of our club's history and to commemorate their contribution to the club in a piece of art which we can all enjoy.

The Goal Scoring Legends, Ronnie Allen, Jeff Astle, Tony Brown, Cyrille Regis and Bob Taylor, are five of the many iconic players who have played at the Hawthorns. Mementos Memorabilia asked Trevillion to capture these five as each of them have a special importance to many Albion fans, as players whose goal scoring attributes have deemed them to be considered Legends.

Goal Scoring Legends
Growing up, goal scorers are our boyhood heroes. Selecting just five to be represented here was a difficult task as there are many more great players who could be commemorated, but these are five fan favourites who have impressed on the lives of many current West Bromwich Albion supporters.

The older generation among us will reminisce about Ronnie Allen and his two goals in the 1954 FA Cup Final victory.

The King to all Albion fans is Jeff Astle, who scored in every round including the final, when winning the FA Cup in 1968 . He lead the Albion line and was a brilliant header of a football.

A constant strength within the team, during the 1960's to 1980's, was Tony Brown who scored goal after goal for the Albion. To this day, he holds the accolade of the highest goal scorer in the clubs history.

Cyrille Regis is remembered not only for his sheer strength and the excitement he brought to a super Albion team in the late 70's, but for his composed and trail blazing attitude when enduring racism from opposition fans.

And finally, Bob Taylor who lit up the Hawthorns after some dark days with his goals and gave us all hope again - particularly when he scored the goal which resulted in our promotion to the Premier League in the 2001/02 season.
