Club Physio to retire at the end of the Season

Prescot Cables physio, Alan Cross, has decided to retire at the end of the 2023/24 campaign, bringing to an end an association with the club lasting over 30 years.
Alan began working with Prescot Cables in 1994 and has worked extensively at this level of the football pyramid at other clubs as well as our own; treating hundreds if not thousands of players during that time. Alan is a well respected physiotherapist who will be missed by everyone at PCFC and will always be welcome at Hope Street as a friend of the club.

Club Captain, Liam Hollett, speaking in our matchday programme 'The Walloper' said "Crossy's journey with Prescot Cables is one defined by unwavering dedication and selflessness. From the early days of taping ankles to late-night treatments after gruelling matches; Crossy's commitment to the wellbeing of our players has been unmatched. His expertise, paired with his genuine care and compassion has been a cornerstone of our teams success"

Cables Manager Steven Daley said "I would like to thank Crossy for the great work he has done. Alan has been an unbelievable servant to the footballing community. His reputation is second to none and he will be a massive miss, not only as a physio but also an integral part of our team. I have known Crossy from as far back as I can care to remember, what I will say is that not only is his professionalism outstanding, he is also a great man. I would love for him to stay on with us but he has earned his retirement and we all wish him the very best"

Alan was joined by his family at the Joseph Russell Stadium for our final home league match of the 2023/24 season last weekend, a 2-0 victory over Stalybridge Celtic, as we celebrated his years of service to Prescot Cables and to the wider football community.

All the best, Crossy!
