A mosaic donated to Preston North End is the latest tribute to have been made in honour of the legendary Sir Tom Finney.
The tilled creation, situated in the Sir Tom Finney reception at Deepdale, was created by artisan craftsmen in Spain. It was then embedded into the wall in the reception area of the stand named after the Preston legend. Sir Tom died in February 2014 aged 91. The mosaic, which is 5 metres wide, has been created using 11,999 pieces and is a replica of ‘The Splash’ statue outside the stadium.
