Milton and Fulston United FC

Firmin Xpress are very pleased to be sponsoring Milton and Fulston United FC for the 2016/17 season.  The team play in the Medway Messenger League, Division 2.

Milton & Fulston FC have been established in Sittingbourne for many years, providing opportunities for local people to play football, with teams starting from the under 7’s right through to adults and also includes disability teams.

Firmin LGV Driver, David Fall, has close links with the team.  His brother-in-law Andy Baughan has coached the team along with Mike Neale for the last six years and they have developed a close knit team of local players who play the game in the right manner and with the right spirit.  David’s nephew plays for the team.

We wish the boys the best of luck for the season.

Kart Racers – Chris & Ed Bridle and Alfie Brooks

Ed and Chris drive for Ambition Motorsport under the expertise of manager Paul Janes, an ex British karting champion.  The teenage lads are currently competing in the Kent Kart Championships which alternate between Bayford Meadows, Sittingbourne and Buckmore Park, Chatham.  We are excited by Christopher and Edward’s potential and are proud to be sponsoring the boys, who live in our company headquarters parish of Linton and race close to our depot in Sittingbourne.

Alfie Brooks is the newest addition to our sponsorship team.  13 year old Alfie is the nephew of Faye Rapley who works in the Firmin Transport office.  Alfie has been karting for over 4 years and races for NR Karting.  He is already proving he is a force to be reckoned with on the circuit.  Alfie had a fantastic 2016 season, winning no less than three championships – The Kent Cup, Bayford Meadows and Buckmore Park.  Alfie is moving up to the full Cadet class for 2017.

Keep up-to-date on the boys progress on our website, via Twitter and in our newsletter ‘Dashboard’.
