A Penrith family business has added two further football teams to its roster of clients.

Alba Travel will now provide team coaches to English League Two team Carlisle United and Scottish League Two team Annan Athletic.

The Cumbrian travel company already provides a service to Workington AFC and Penrith AFC.

Director and owner of Alba Travel, Allan Holmes, said he was pleased to have secured contracts with the two football teams.

“They are great contracts to secure, especially in the current climate where private hire is minimal due to the Covid-19 restrictions,” he said.

Mr Holmes said that he was excited to work with the two local League Two professional football clubs.

“We look forward to forming a strong bond with both clubs over the next few years,” he said.

“The new contracts are thanks to the hard work of the team at Alba Travel.”

A family business located north east of Penrith, Alba Travel has been operating since May 2002.

Alba Travel operates a range of different-sized vehicles suitable for a range of groups, from seven and 16-seater minibuses to 53 and 55-seater coaches.

It caters to a wide range of groups needing transport, from wedding parties and corporate events to those going on an educational visit.

The company also travels to every major airport and seaport in England and Scotland, and offers a “door-to-door” airport and seaport travel service.
