Kingdom Announced as Finalists in Two OSPA Categories

We are delighted to be nominated for not one, but two Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPA).

We are finalists in the ‘Outstanding Contract Security Company’ category and Mark Wallace, our COO, is nominated in the ‘Outstanding Contract Security Manager/Director’ category.

The OSPAs are now in their third year and serve to acknowledge the creditable and infinite contributions that companies, initiatives, teams and individuals make to the security industry and wider community.

“The standard of entries this year has again been really high making the judging process as difficult as ever” commented Professor Martin Gill, Founder of the OSPAs. “…Those that have been selected were marked independently by the judging panel and all reached a score threshold – ensuring they represent the very best in the industry.”

Finalists will now go forward to the next phase of the competition and winners will be announced at the OSPAs awards dinner taking place on Thursday, 28th February 2019 at the Royal Lancaster London.

Please cross your fingers and wish both Kingdom and Mark Wallace the best of luck!

Wigan Athletic supporters have voted Gary Roberts’ thunder strike from distance against Blackburn Rovers, as their first Kingdom Goal of the Month for this season.

Roberts’ strike was the clear winner, receiving 63% of the votes, with Reece James’ stunning freekick taking second place.

Our CEO, Terry Barton and Wigan Athletic club legend and now, Kingdom Colleague, Neill Rimmer presented Gary Roberts with his award before kick-off on Saturday.
