A Cambridgeshire haulage firm decided to celebrate its 70th anniversary by lending a hand to a local team of young footballers.

G. Webb Haulage, of Longstanton, has backed Sutton Rangers under 12s by sponsoring the youngsters’ kit for the new season.

A spokesman said: “As a family company based in the local community, we are one of the fortunate companies to be celebrating our 70th anniversary.

“As one of the managing directors lives in Sutton, his wife, Amanda, decided it would be nice to give something back to the local community.

“Sutton Rangers just happened to be looking for someone to assist them with a new kit.”

Director George Webb then went to Sutton on September 23 to meet with the team and pose for a photo alongside one of the firm’s lorries.

Sutton Rangers play in the Cambridge & District Colts League.
