The mural design winner whose submission was anonymous was chosen by Bruno himself. Bruno, who is pleased with the finished mural has been involved with the campaign from the start. He also helped pick the final design, which features him in the BHAFC stripes clapping the fans, his famous quote ‘once a seagull, always a seagull' and a seagull flying above him. He says:
“I love the new mural. Thanks to the Stag Company and Glimmer Twin for bringing it back to the city I know it hasn’t been easy”
We, The Stag Company, ran the community campaign to find a new design for the mural on the 7.5m wall in October and Street Artist Glimmer Twin was set the challenge to paint the mural behind sheeting during the Winter months. Rob Hill our CEO says “Our main aim was to bring the mural back to the city and celebrate a legend. A lot of work has been put into this community project and we are really happy that Bruno likes it”
Bruno also added: “I feel the new mural represents the new chapter of my career and I love that I am clapping the fans”
"I was really upset when [the mural] was taken down... especially in his retirement year as well."
Rob Hill, The Stag Company CEO
Our CEO Rob Hill (of The Stag Company) is a long-standing loyal supporter of the football club and he was particularly disappointed about the removal of the mural.

Under Rob's leadership and passion for the local football team, the Stag Company decided to replace the mural and #BringBrunoBack!
