A long-established relationship has come full circle to see two local businesses support each other once again.

Dale Gordon began his football career with Norwich City FC. It was whilst he was playing for the Canaries that he began his relationship with Simpsons Motor Group.

Simpsons gave Gordon his own sign-written VW Scirocco to use whilst playing for the club.

Since retiring from professional football, Gordon has formed his own soccer academy, which was established in 1996, and has built his business to boast three local soccer academies: Caister High School, Great Yarmouth High School, Great Yarmouth College, with a fourth currently in the pipeline in Thorpe, Norwich.

In September, Simpsons Motor Group again sign-wrote a new Skoda Octavia VRS for Gordon and has also given sponsorship to Great Yarmouth Town FC.

Any child aged between three and 15, of any ability is able to join the soccer academy by contacting Dale Gordon direct on 01493 384267.
