Local coach firm Smiths of Marple have scored a starring role to kick off the Barclay’s Premier League’s new advertising campaign.
The family run business were approached by Blink Productions and asked to tackle their transportation needs during the ad campaign, which took several days to shoot.
The advert starred several of Smiths’ drivers, and of course, the star of the show, one of their 48-seat Setra Executive coaches, as well as a number of extras decked out in Manchester City’s colours.
Despite not all of the drivers being City fans, they had a fantastic time. Driver Phillip Gill said it was “a brilliant experience and an amazing opportunity for a small local firm like us”.

Smiths have provided the Glossop area’s school transport for many years and have recently started picking up in and around Glossop for their regular excursions.
