A great partnership
A League of Their Own is a sports-based comedy panel game first broadcast on Sky1 in March 2010. Hosted by Gavin and Stacey star James Corden; it features Andrew Flintoff and Jamie Redknapp as team captains. John Bishop and Georgie Thompson were regular panelists for the first four series alongside two weekly guests. Jack Whitehall then joined the cast as a regular panelist from the fifth series onwards.
Canning Conveyor supplied all the conveyors which have been in several shows in each of the UK ALOTO series, starting from series 3 and has since also supplied conveyors in the Australian ALOTO series. The whole project has been a huge success for the Worksop based company.
“This show has been a pleasure to be associated with and we are a fantastic supporter of the show”, Andrew Canning commented, “We have been privileged to work with the team at ALOTO and have developed a great relationship with them, it’s been very exciting and also a continuous challenge to come up with games using our conveyors for the shows in each series.”
Matt Wilkinson – Producer, A League Of Their Own - Sky One, commented, “Canning Conveyors equipment has featured in 5 series of A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN and each time has been a resounding success.”
“Not only does the equipment they supply look brilliant but more than that it has become an iconic part of the show. In addition the team from Canning Conveyors were a pleasure to work with. They were involved from pre-production through to the recording of the show, and at every stage gave valuable input and advice to make sure that the equipment was used efficiently and safely. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any other production company.”
