On Tuesday 22nd November we had a special group of visitors get into our taxis from London Heathrow.
The group of 14 included Steve McMahon who played for Liverpool, Everton and Manchester City at club level and gathered 17 caps for England. Steve had returned following a few months in Malaysia looking for the best young footballing talent.
The try-outs took place across Malaysia in September and October and attracted thousands of 11-14 year olds, all vying for the grand prize: a trip to the UK which includes the opportunity to impress scouts from top European football clubs.
Joined by Steve were the two winners of the competition, Muhd Yusry of Sarawak and Adam Roshan of Kuala Lumpur, and their families. Murphys Taxis picked the group up from Heathrow and drove them to Market Harborough, where the group will stay for a week.
We’re familiar with footballing talent using our taxi services. It was only earlier this year that Peter Crouch, another ex-England and Liverpool player, used our Market Harborough taxi service to get to Kasabian guitarist, Serge Pizornno’s wedding.
Because of our large fleets of vehicles – the largest in the area – we can handle larger group pick-ups. Our airport collections and drop offs make us the go-to taxi service, especially for those with a large group.
Thanks to our wide range of vehicles, from standard 5 seat cars to mini buses, Murphys are the only taxi company in the area to be able to offer such a large number and variety of vehicle types operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
If you are looking for a safe, reliable and efficient taxi company based in South Leicestershire call us on 01858 410210 for the Market Harborough office or 01455 55 9000 for our Lutterworth taxi base.
