- Liam Hollett

As the curtain falls on another football season, there's a bittersweet moment looming over Prescot Cables. This season marks the end of an era as we bid farewell to a cherished member of our team, Alan Cross, affectionately known as "Crossy." For years, Crossy has been the heartbeat of our club, tirelessly tending to the needs of our players, both on and off the pitch. As he embarks on a well-deserved retirement, it's time to celebrate his incredible contributions and the indelible mark he's left on Prescot Cables players and others throughout his career.

Crossy's journey with Prescot Cables is one defined by unwavering dedication and selflessness. From the early days of taping ankles to the late-night treatments after grueling matches, Crossy's commitment to the well-being of our players has been unmatched. His expertise, paired with his genuine care and compassion, has been a cornerstone of our team's success.

But Crossy has been more than just a physio; he's been a mentor, confidant, and friend to everyone at the club. His infectious positivity and calming presence have been a source of comfort during the highs and lows of each season. Whether it's offering words of encouragement or sharing a laugh in the treatment room, Crossy's impact extends far beyond his professional duties.

As we prepare to say goodbye to Crossy, it's impossible to quantify the impact he's had on Prescot Cables. His legacy will endure in the memories of players past and present, and in the countless victories and challenges overcome with his support. Though he may be retiring from his official role, Crossy will forever remain an integral part of the Prescot Cables family.

As we bid farewell to Crossy, we do so with hearts full of gratitude and admiration for all he's given to our club. While his absence will be felt on the sidelines, his spirit will continue to inspire us in every match and every triumph. Here's to Crossy, a true legend of Prescot Cables, and a friend for life.

As we turn the pages of another matchday program, let us take a moment to honor Crossy's remarkable career and the profound impact he's had on Prescot Cables. Though his time with us may be ending, his legacy will live on in the annals of our club's history. Thank you, Crossy, for everything. You'll always have a special place in our hearts.
