Gormley sculpture supports local football team!

Since Exeter’s famous Gormley sculpture was installed on the roof overlooking Broad Street, he has been spotted wearing a kilt and tartan hat in honour of Burns’ Night, as well as an evening dress – and last week he expanded his wardrobe still further.

On May 18th Oxford United football team mounted a victory parade which took them from the Kassam Stadium, on the outskirts of Oxford, through the city centre to finish on Broad Street. As the city celebrated the team’s promotion to the Football League in the streets below, it wasn’t just at ground level that you could see bright splashes of OU blue and yellow: the Gormley too had its own Oxford United shirt and cap, courtesy of one of the College’s porters!
