I painted John’s portrait because I watched him play way back in the 70’s for MFC.
Only two players have made more appearances for the club and three have scored more goals than Boro legend John Hickton.
also got to know him well as he played football with the best group of footballers from the Jack Charlton era. https://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/latestnews/2020/finding-jack-charltonThe finished painting was sold to an ardent Middlesbrough Football Club fan who had admired John from way back. https://www.mfc.co.uk/Hickton Alan received the portrait as a Christmas gift from his daughter. It was an emotional moment. To commission a portrait is simple. Just send me a photo and we can talk about the image and timings. https://sharonplattartwork.com/commission-a-portrait/
