The Robins have just taken delivery of a NEW Top of the Range Mercedes Mini Bus courtesy of Ilkeston based Lobina Transport.
Lobina are a very successful Ilkeston based company, who are specialists in TIME CRITICAL delivery and problem solving for major international companies, such as Airbus, Vauxhall Motors, Nissan and the Ford Motor Company, to name just a few, keeping the Motor industry and Aero Space production lines moving. The company also have a large local presence and are major problem solvers for distribution companies throughout Europe who encounter breakdowns.
Commenting earlier, Chief Executive Nigel Harrop was excited about the strong links Lobina and Ilkeston FC have forged over the last couple of years. Nigel told us: “Simon met Gavin, Andy and myself a few weeks ago, excited about how the new setup was coming together and asking what he could do to make things even better for the great TEAM that is being developed on and off the field. He suggested they provide the club with first class transport across the country every week, let the first team and academy players travel in comfort and style to training and games. Simon attended the playoff final defeat as a guest last season and his first words to me after the game were: “We are a team, we win together and lose together .. Lets now make this a Happy Club again.” He believes in this club and wants to help all he can to make it successful.”
The NEW Mercedes Bus carries a team of 16 and has ample storage for kit and has air conditioning.
Manager Gavin Strachan said: “It is a tremendous gesture by Simon and a massive help in getting the message out, that what we are about is quality and striving to do our best at all levels.”
