Local market leading lettings and estate agent Martin & Co would like to congratulate Crewe Alexandra FC on their excellent cup final win at Wembley on Sunday.
The Alex comfortably defeated Southend United 2-0 to win the Football League Trophy, currently sponored by Johnson's Paint. It was their second Wembley success in less than a year, having beaten Cheltenham by the same score in the League Two playoff final last May.
The Martin & Co offices in Sandbach, Crewe and Nantwich had all been decked out with flags and scarves in honour of the event, and all the team were overjoyed at the impressive win.
Excited Director Shaun Cafferty said:"A lot of our landlords and tenants are Alex fans too and I saw some of them down there. We are a local business and it was a proud day for everyone in South Cheshire. The motorway service stations were packed with red shirts, and coaches from Nantwich, Sandbach, Alsager and of course Crewe itself. We run letting agencies in all those places so we felt a real affinity with them.
It was another good day for the town, and the whole area, at Wembley. The players, mangement and staff at Crewe Alexandra deserve great credit, thanks and congratulations."
Martin & Co are a club sponsor and work closely with the Alex in organising accommodation for new and loan signings. A number of former players are now landlords with them too.
