GNE New Soccerbus and Advertising liveries

Go North East recently introduced the Soccerbus service running from Metrocentre to St James Park around match time only on match days. unexpectedly a Volvo B10BLE / Wright Renown was painted into the livery sporting shopping bags and advertising for the Soccerbus brand and the name “altoonative travel” in a base colour of red from the previous Northern livery, when not used on this service it is used as a reserve. A DAF SB220 /Plaxton Prestige has also gained Soccerbus logos but keeps the yellow base colour and a very simplified livery. Then another DAF SB220 was painted into a similar livery as the Renown but instead of Soccerbus logos it sported advertising for the CentreLink and TEN services in Newcastle, although they have made a mistake on the names on the nearside, saying that the CentreLink runs from Newcaste and then TEN from Gateshead – this should be the other way around – although the mistake has been included on the net. So, below is DAF 4863 S863 ONL, Renown 4910 and DAF 4988.
