Cumbrian bus company Reays’ Tangerine dream
Last updated at 09:00, Saturday, 19 May 2012
Cumbrian coach company Reays is hoping to complete a promotion double when Blackpool FC take on West Ham at Wembley today.
The Wigton-based firm, which has provided Blackpool’s official players’ coach all season, has already celebrated success with another of its clients after Fleetwood Town won promotion to the Football League for the first time in its history as champions of the Conference Premier.
Victory today for Blackpool at the national stadium would see the Tangerines return to the big time in the Premier League just 12 months after being relegated.
Reays’ executive coach, driven by Simon Woodward, took the Blackpool players and officials down to their hotel at Windsor from the club’s Bloomfield Road stadium on Thursday afternoon. After training at Bisham Abbey yesterday morning, the Blackpool squad visited Wembley before returning there for today’s game.
They will return home tomorrow after a party at Marble Arch tonight.
Reays also provide the official team coaches for Carlisle United, Burnley and Accrington Stanley, as well as Workington Town and Whitehaven rugby league and Wigton and Aspatria rugby union.
Managing director Chris Reay said: “We wish Blackpool the best of luck in their play-off final. It has been a pleasure working with the club this season.”
