A road near the Cardiff City Stadium was officially named after Bluebirds goal-scoring hero Brian Clark on Saturday.
In a ceremony before Cardiff’s game against Barnsley, Clark’s wife Gill unveiled the sign for the newly-named Brian Clark Way, which leads into the Capital Retail Park next to the ground.
Clark, whose legendary goal defeated Real Madrid 40 years ago, died last year.
The decision to name the road after the striker was made by Cardiff council after consulting with City fans.
Keith Morgan, a member of Cardiff City Supporters’ Trust board, said: “Naming the road after Brian Clark will be a very popular choice among City fans, given his iconic status after heading in the goal that beat Real Madrid 40 years ago this year.
“Brian, who was a hugely popular figure, maintained his links with the club as a match-day host until the time he became ill.”
Coun Neil McEvoy, deputy leader of Cardiff council, said: “By far and away the most popular name was Brian Clark and following a meeting with supporters’ representatives that is the name I took forward.”
Clark is a true Cardiff City icon following his two spells with the Bluebirds, most prolifically between 1967 and 1972. He made a total of 240 appearances in all competitions for the club, scoring 91 goals.
