A Lowestoft firm that manufactures goals, posts and nets for major sporting events has secured its latest lucrative contract.

Harrod UK, based on Pinbush Road, won the contract to supply the first ever Cerebral Palsy Football World Championships in England- which began on Saturday, June 13.

16 teams from around the world competed for the chance to secure places for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.

Kevin Utton, Sales and Marketing Manager, said: “Following our previous experience in supplying the London 2012 Paralympic Games, we are delighted to be supplying goals, nets and team shelters to another world class event like the Cerebral Palsy World Championships.”

“Being involved with the event allows us to promote a sport providing people with Cerebral Palsy, a condition that affects muscle control and movement, with the incredible opportunity to play football on a national platform like St George’s Park.”
