Support England - at your convenience!

By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: 10 Jul 2018

Nisa Retail is rolling out a roar for England's pride of lions in Russia - dedicating 12 vehicles to the World Cup semi-final first team and manager Gareth Southgate.

The Scunthorpe delivered wholesale specialist is paying tribute and drumming up extra support as deliveries hit the road to some of the 3,000 shops stocked by the team tomorrow.

IN FORMATION: The lorries ready to roll. 

And such is the turnaround that many will be carrying vital last minute purchases to make the match go as well it can from living rooms around the country.

From beer to crisps, half time food, full time bubbly or - worst case scenario - a cup of tea for sympathy, the Normanby Enterprise Park giant will cater for the needs of those last minute dashes to convenience stores nationwide. 

“The England team’s performance in this World Cup has united the country. We felt we should honour them and hopefully, through the power of social media, our messages of support might reach the team and give them an extra boost.” Steve Leach, sales director at Nisa Retail said.

The temporary livery will have horns honking as they cover the miles from Waldo Way, no doubt generating smiles aplenty along the way. 

And we'll all be hoping they are kept in place until the end of the week, and the World Cup Final that looms large as a prize for victory over Croatia.
