Premier Logistics sponsor record breaking Premier League game!

The Premier Logistics Group were extremely proud main sponsors of the Leicester City v Man United Premier League football match on Saturday 28th November.

We were accompanied by numerous customers and colleagues from all four Premier Logistics Group depot locations who were all extremely impressed by all aspects of the event. From the three course dinner and drinks to the level of service and hospitality provided by LCFC at the King Power Stadium.

Jamie Vardy wrote his name into Premier League history by scoring for the 11th successive game - but both Leicester City and Manchester United both missed the chance to go top of the table with this draw at the King Power Stadium. Vardy, wearing golden boots, went into this game hoping to eclipse former Man United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record, set across two seasons in 2003. Leicester City’s 28-year-old striker has been a man on a mission since the start of the season and if the weight of expectation he carried into this game was any sort of burden, he carried it lightly.

He savoured his moment in the 24th minute. There was not a trace of nerves as he darted between two Man United defenders and on to Fuchs’ pass to race clear and beat goalkeeper David de Gea with a precise finish.

As the King Power Stadium rocked to a crescendo of noise and Vardy took the acclaim, it was time to reflect on the sort of finish that has become his trademark in a golden season for the striker who has made his way from Stocksbridge Park Steel in the non-league to England recognition and history maker. The tributes came instantly from the football world. What a story and what an example to any youngsters or non-league players fighting their way up the ladder!

Victory would have returned second placed Leicester to the Premier League summit, but Man United’s Bastian Schweinsteiger equalised just seconds before the half time whistle to stretch United’s unbeaten run to 10 games and keep them firmly in title contention. The match finished on a very pleasing, albeit slightly frustrating 1-1 draw.

Man of the match was presented by Lee Christopher, MD of Premier Logistics, to Leicester City’s N’Golo Kanté.
