Lambert Engineering was an engineering firm which took its name from owner Sid Lambert. In January 1966, when David Barlow retired from Sid's football club Weatherfield Athletic due to injury, Sid offered him a job as an engineer on his factory floor, but David turned the position down in favour of buying the Corner Shop.
