LSH Auto provides football carrier car to Robbie Savage at Macclesfield FC

AM100 dealer group LSH Auto has supplied Macclesfield FC with a new kids’ electric car for the club’s ball carriers, to celebrate its first anniversary as official car and van supplier.

The licensed Mercedes AMG G63 12V electric car will be used by the club’s match ball carriers to travel onto the pitch at the start of a game.

Martyn Webb (pictured right), managing director of LSH Auto, said: “We were inspired by the remote controlled cars that delivered match balls onto the pitch before England’s home games at Wembley and Scotland’s home games at Hamden Park in the Euros. We thought it would be fun for the young boys and girls who carry the match ball out onto the pitch before Macclesfield FC’s home games to drive the club’s own tiny Mercedes-Benz.”

LSH Auto was first announced as the official car and van supplier to Macclesfield FC in December 2020, just two months after the club embarked on a re-launch.

Since then, it has grown to include 29 football teams and an academy, with 75 staff, including 25 full-time coaches as well as a gym, a bar and a 4G pitch.

Macclesfield FC’s director of Football Robbie Savage (pictured left) said: “We were so pleased to welcome LSH Auto as one of our sponsors back in December and we’ve been putting our Mercedes-Benz Vito Tourer Vans to good use at all levels since then, from transporting the first team, to being used for some of our grassroots and community initiatives.

“LSH Auto’s Mercedes-Benz of Macclesfield dealership is minutes away from our ground, so it’s a local business, but it’s also part of one of the largest dealer groups for Mercedes-Benz cars worldwide. It just goes to show how local businesses are getting behind the club and supporting the Macclesfield community.

“Kids are a huge part of our club. We have 365 youngsters aged 7-16 playing football here, and we want to encourage even more families to get involved, so I think the tiny Mercedes-Benz is going to be a brilliant asset to the club.”
