St Helens have today confirmed that The Steve Prescott Garden of Remembrance is now officially open.
Conceived as a place where fans can pay tribute to their loved ones, it is situated behind the East Stand at Langtree Park.
The garden has been constructed by Urban Jungle, in conjunction with the Original Saints Supporters Club and the Saints.
“It is right and proper that the Club has a Garden of Remembrance for the benefit of all fans. It is a place for thought and reflection for all supporters for their loved ones,” said St Helens chairman Eamonn McManus.
“It is our privilege to name the garden after Steve Prescott who, more than any, symbolises the spirit of the Club and of the town.
“We chose carefully from the Bible (Timothy 4:6-8) the wording on the garden: ‘I have fought the fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith’.
“They reflect perfectly the life of Steve and the spirit of the club and of its supporters past and present.”
Martin Blondel General Manager of the Steve Prescott Foundation added: “It is a tremendous honour for the family, charity and supporters of the late great Steve Prescott MBE for Steve’s name to be associated with the Garden of Remembrance.
“It is a place for fans to pay their respects and remember all our Saints.
“We would like to thank all who played a part in making this happen.”
