03/07/2018 Rennies Coaches partner with Kelty Hearts FC as the club’s official transport partner.
Rennies Coaches has joined forces with East of Scotland Football League champions, Kelty Hearts FC to become their official transport partner. The team’s official new mode of transport will be a 55 seat luxury executive Van hool Astromega coach. Maroon in colour to match team colours, the vehicle has already been affectionately dubbed #themaroonmachine by officials at the club.
These modern executive coaches are impressive in presence and style. They are incredibly comfortable to travel in, with wide leather seats, ample leg room and tables. The 55 seats on board convert into 41 beds for long distance travel, or for physio stations on the move.
In association with sister company, Stagecoach East Scotland, Rennies are also providing sponsorship in the form of advertising at New Central Park Stadium along with match day warm up kit sponsorship.
Gordon Menzies, Operations Manager, Rennies Coaches said: “We’re proud to be supporting a local, yet progressive football team that has come a long way in a short space of time and continues to perform. From a corporate portfolio point of view, this is exactly the type of partnership we look for at Rennies. Our luxury coaches are perfectly suited to this type of work and we look forward to seeing them on the road with the Kelty Hearts team on board.”
Dean McKenzie, General Manager, Kelty Hearts Football Club said: “I, and all at Kelty Hearts are delighted, and looking forward to working with Rennies as our new official transport partner. Exciting times for our football club!“
