The Beard backs John Holland

Sheffield United cult hero John Brayford paid our showroom a special visit.

Versatile defender Brayford, 27, who re-joined the Blades in January following a loan spell last season, has purchased a Land Rover Defender from the prestige car dealers based on Meadowhall Road.

Brayford, who is also the proud owner of a 2000 Rover Mini Cooper, said: “I paid the John Holland Sales showroom a visit and I was amazed by the selection of cars on show.

“I’d like to thank Mark, Tony and the rest of the team at John Holland Sales for their exceptional service.

"I’m delighted with my Land Rover Defender, it’s an iconic vehicle and it’s sad to see that production of them in the UK will cease this year.”

Tony Entwistle, general manager of John Holland Sales, said: “We are extremely proud to be sponsors of Sheffield United and with many of us being Blades fans, it was a great moment to see Brayford pay a visit to our showroom.

“We’re delighted to have helped him find his next car and we wish him and the rest of the team all the very best for the remainder of the season – we’ll be cheering them on every step of the way.”
