Norfolk six-fingered gloves make £100million profit

By  | 

A Norfolk business which specialises in making six-fingered gloves has posted an astonishing £100 million profit.

Chairman of Keep It In The Family Ltd, Mr Ken Ary, said the firm had gone from strength to strength in recent years thanks to astonishing local demand.

“Everyone in Norwich and throughout the county of Norfolk needs six-fingered gloves, and we spotted the gap in the market. Demand has been so good that we are proud to post £100 million profit figures today.”

But it was not all good news for the Keep It In The Family business. Mr Ary said its range of flip-flops footwear had to be withdrawn since locals with webbed feet could not wear them.

“It was a set-back, but thankfully the six-fingered glove sales have more than made up for it.”

To celebrate the bumper profits, Keep It In The Family is handing out thousands of pairs of the six-fingered gloves to Norwich City fans outside Carrow Road before this Sunday’s crucial derby with East Anglian rivals Ipswich Town.

The firm has even signed a deal with Norwich City manager Alex Neil to wear their gloves on the touchline.

A club insider said: “We are very pleased to have partnered with Keep It In The Family, and are grateful for the work they do for local Norwich fans.”

Meanwhile, Mr Ary said the firm was expanding its specialist clothing range.

“Should Norwich somehow manage to gain promotion back to the Premier League this year, then we have prepared by making some very big hats and oversized boots.

“Already the local supporters are showing signs of being too big for their boots – and their heads are getting bigger by the day.”

    Seems that our North folk cousins are not amused. Well I was very amused to see them lose to Middlesborough tonight, by an own goal. Yes, I repeat, an own goal.

    I fear the manufacturer of these items is missing a large market from ooop North. Two towns in particular have large, untapped numbers of people requiring the gloves. Both Leigh and Burnley in Lancashire!! Good luck, your sales should now boom.

    6 – The number of points Norwich take from Ipswich games each season.

    6 – The number of years since Ipswich last beat Norwich.

    The above illustration of 6 fingered gloves was drawn by Suffolk’s most skilled draughtsman.

      To be fair, the drawing was dropped in the road right in front of a steam roller

    The company made the same deal with Ipswich Town but have yet to receive a payment from the bankrupt, backward club. In order to cover the £2,000 debt, ITFC will be selling their most expensive player but that will still leave them with a £1,900 shortfall. To cover the rest they now plan to add £1 to the ticket price for their home games which should rake in a mind-boggling £27 each time to cover the instalments.

      Ten comes after Nine, not Two.
