Leamington firm flying the flag for Leicester City

THEY’VE been putting out the bunting for the new Premier League champions at a Leamington firm this week.

Textile manufacturer Tracy Adams has been inundated with orders for blue and white bunting in the wake of Leicester City securing the title on Monday night.

The St Mary’s Road-based firm has seen a flood of orders from the East Midlands for the ten-metre lengths of bunting, from big business including Sainsbury’s and Yates’s, to pubs across the city, and even from ordinary fans – all of who are all gearing up to celebrate one of the most remarkable football success stories of all time.

The factory is busy ensuring all the orders are completed and delivered before the big party this weekend when Claudio Ranieri’s men are presented with the trophy ahead of their final home match of the season against Everton on Saturday.

Tracy Adams director Emma Woodworth told The Observer: “It’s gone absolutely crazy – the phone has not stopped ringing with Leicester orders.

“We usually get a few orders a week, but this is something else. We’re helping make the whole city blue and white. I hope they enjoy the party.”
