Gary Higham, March Soccer School’s under-10s coach, thanked the company for its support.
He said: “We are extremely grateful that they have supplied us kit for the coming season.
“Everyone at the club is really looking forward to the new season. We put the emphasis on the children enjoying themselves. It is not about win at all costs.”
The company’s managing director Keith Perry, of March, started out as a self employed courier in 1989, working as one of the few dedicated motorcycle couriers in Cambridge.
Starting out with one motorcycle, he ran twice daily trips to London.
It worked extremely well and customers were soon requesting nationwide deliveries.
To accommodate this, the fleet expanded to include more motorcycles and then vans.
