Four National Express drivers ‘coached’ England’s brightest athletic stars this month – as they transported teenage hopefuls to the Youth Commonwealth Games.

Drivers Steve Loveland, Terry Collins, Steve Overton and Bob Wilson got behind the wheel of National Express’ special Commonwealth Game coaches, each decorated with a unique “We are England“ livery, to ensure the England team arrived in style to competitions across the Isle of Man.

National Express Group is an Official Supporter of the England team until the next Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. Their coaches were used to transport the Athletics, Badminton, Boxing, Cycling, Swimming, Rugby7’s and Gymnastic teams to their events between September 8 and 12.

“We are proud to support the Youth Commonwealth Games and help England’s young athletes reach the competition in patriotic style,” said Andrew Cleaves, managing director National Express coaches.

The company has also provided all England’s gold medal winners from the Commonwealth Games in Delhi with free National Express coach travel to help them train for the next Games in 2014.
