Meet the Team

As Henry Ford once said "Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success".

A company is only as good as its team and we are fortunate enough to have a great team. Small but perfectly formed we like to think!

Run by people who are passionate about sport and delivering an excellent customer experience and fortunate to gain the services of staff that have both played and worked in the professional sports industry having obtained more than 50 years’ experience in many different fields.

So here we are in all our glory!
