Our final home game of the season is around the corner, and fans arriving at Goodison Park on Friday night will be greeted by a slight change outside the ground.
The ‘Holy Trinity’ statue featuring Howard Kendall, Colin Harvey and Alan Ball is set to finally be introduced to supporters this week, and images have surfaced online showing the bronze figures being installed.
The esteemed trio will stand on a raised plinth outside of St Luke’s Church, with the base created from the cobbles which went there before, as a reference to how the street looked during their playing days.
English artist Tom Murphy, who also created the Dixie Dean statue, is responsible for the construction of the ‘Holy Trinity’ sculpture, along with work depicting John Lennon and Captain Noel Chavasse VC.

Our home game with Burnley will be the final chance supporters get to see Marco Silva’s men ply their trade at Goodison Park this term, as we look to start the weekend strongly and move ahead of Leicester.
The Foxes do not play again until Monday, May 6, when they travel to the title-chasing Manchester City, while the current seventh-placed Wolverhampton Wanderers host Championship-bound Fulham at Molineux on Saturday for the chance to go six points clear of the King Power natives.
