Blades-themed truck reveal at Hull

Did you spot the special Blades-themed lorry during the pre-season clash with Hull?
We brought a specially-designed 44 tonne truck to Bramall Lane at the weekend, parked at the top of the main Cherry Street car park. Fans were also given the chance to win one of two signed home shirts by submitting a photo of them with the vehicle to social media.
The eye-catching illustrated trailer design is the work of Sheffield-based designer Matt Cockayne, who runs Goo Design, and features both fans and past and present Blades players entering the Kop stand turnstiles.
Names on the back of the shirts featured in the design include members of the DBL Logistics team, including Bert and Linda Clarkson, who started the company more than 30 years ago, and son and current s David, who completes the company initials.
The design also pays tribute to the late Alan Woodward, and features the names of Club legend Tony Currie and current fan’s favourite John Brayford.
David Clarkson, managing director of DBL Logistics, said: “We are extremely proud sponsors of this wonderful football Club and we’re delighted to have a specially designed Blades truck to add to our fleet.
“We currently warehouse and distribute more than 120,000 pallets of goods across South Yorkshire and the North Midlands each year so we will be flying the flag of Sheffield’s Red and White wherever we go.
“We’ve loved seeing the fans get involved by taking their photo with the truck and sending them in to us. Everyone who has will be entered into a prize draw for one of two signed home shirts. Good luck all entrants.”
