Bevan statue back in place

The statue of Warrington legend Brian Bevan is now back in its rightful place outside of the Halliwell Jones Stadium ready for their home opener this weekend.

The club has carried out stadium development in the off-season and as a result the statue was temporarily relocated.

Rugby League legend Brian Bevan played for the Wire between 1945 and 1962 making 620 appearances and scoring 2288 points for the Warrington club.

During Bevan’s time at Warrington the club won the Championship three times, the Challenge Cup twice and the Lancashire Cup once. Bevan was known for his try scoring ability scoring his first in the Lancashire Cup against Salford in 1946.

Bevan passed away aged 66 in June 1991 and two years later on 29 August 1993 the club unveiled a statue of the player in his memory on Wilderspool Causeway roundabout.

In 2004 Warrington Wolves moved from Wilderspool to their new home The Halliwell Jones Stadium and Bevan moved with them taking pride of place as supporters approach the stadium.

Warrington Wolves will play host to London Broncos on Sunday afternoon, kick-of 3pm, in round two of the new Stobart Super League season.
