David Melding, the South Wales Central AM, has become the eighth member of the Welsh Assembly to support the Fred Keenor Statue Appeal.

David wrote to Sp0rts Minister Huw Lewis backing the campaign for a tribute for the Cardiff City and Wales captain who lifted the FA Cup in 1927.

The others supporting the appeal are Julie Morgan,  Mark Drakeford, Vaughan Gething, all Cardiff AMs, and Mick Antoniw (Pontypridd), Jane Hutt (Vale of Glamorgan) and regional AMs Lindsay Whittle and Leanne Wood. We’re hoping Julie Morgan will meet the Minister in September to press the case further.
