Umbro at the time was going through a huge change in its business when it secured huge sportswear contracts with leading football sides like– Liverpool, Manchester United, Celtic and Rangers and a host of other clubs and alongside this we also secured international sides England and Scotland. A personal highlight was meeting the legendry England Manager Sir Bobby Robson when he visited the Macclesfield design centre to give approval to the new kit for the 1986 Mexico world cup. Being part of the team that pulled together the collections for sports sides, teams and clubs across the world was an amazing experience.
