Suffolk vehicles help to spread footballing joy

A FATHER and daughter team are hoping England motor to victory tonight after decking out these cars in fabulous football paraphernalia.

The two British-manufactured vehicles, emblazoned with England colours, are part of a family tradition.

Graeme Keeble, of John Keeble of Bramford, based in Ship Lane, has decorated his company’s cars for the past two World Cups in support of the country’s squad.

He said he was persuaded to transform the Jaguar XJ8 and Nissan Micra by his 10-year-old daughter, Fleur.

He said: “We have done a car up for occasions like this before.

“I was unsure whether to do it again but my daughter persuaded me and customers were keen to know when the cars would be put on show. I think it’s great to spread the joy of the competition.”

The Jaguar has been imprinted with a Wayne Rooney football shirt and Mr Keeble said he was hoping the England striker would remain fit for the entire competition.
