When the Walk of Legends scheme was announced six months ago the quest began to name the greatest players in Gloucester's history. Thousands of nominations were received and with so many legends to choose from, a spokesman for the club, said: "The response to the Walk of Legends has been fantastic, it was our original aim to identify 10 names although it soon became apparent that this was a very difficult if not an impossible task."
The Walk of Legends project has provided the opportunity to focus upon and remember the many great players that have represented Gloucester and worn the club colors with pride.

The spokesman added: "There was no way the club could contemplate launching a Walk of Legends without gaining the views of the supporters who have watched hundreds of players and thousands of games down the years. We would like to thank the Citizen for their help in publicising this scheme and believe the Walk of Legends will greatly enhance the new C&G Grandstand"
The Walk of Legends is being layed in sections, as and when enough bricks are sold to fill a section it will be layed and will include a Legend's stone.
As there are a limited number of sections in the walkway a Hall of Fame will also be created within the stadium to honour more players.
"It was felt that it was only right to acknowledge the many great players who has played a part in making the club what it is today. The Hall of Fame will enable us to do this and names can be added over time"
There are still bricks available for supporters to purchase. They can be engraved with your own personal message, which could include your name, your partners name, celebration of an anniversary, birthday, remembering a loved one or celebrating a birth.
