Ross Care sponsors Alverthorpe Juniors Football Team

Ross Care is supporting long-term employee Adam Crowcroft as he volunteers coaching his local children’s football club. Find out more about his role and work with team.

How long have you been working at Ross Care and what role did you start out in?

I have been at Ross Care for a total of 12 years and started as a Reconditioning Operative refurbishing wheelchairs and running the Pre-Delivery Inspection department ensuring all each wheelchair was ready for issue to the SU’s.

What is your current role and what do you most like about working at Ross Care?

My current role at Ross Care is Regional Refurbishment Lead which involves ensuring the northern Ross Care depots are refurbishing equipment to a high standard, efficiently and within our contractual timescales. I like working at Ross Care because we are providing a service to the community which ensures people have a better quality of life. This gives me a sense of pride and achievement knowing that I have helped provide someone with a piece of equipment which will help them live a better life.

How did you become involved with Alverthorpe Juniors and in what ways do you participate in the club?

I firstly became involved with Alverthorpe Juniors when I took my son down for a trail training session, and after a few weeks the head coach Stephen Wilson asked me if I wanted to help him coach the next U7’s team. Myself and Stephen now carry out the training sessions for the team and organise friendly matches to help the children gain experience before the next season when they join the Garforth Junior football League in September. We were recently invited to play against Manchester United Pre Academy U6’s which was a great experience for the team.

What benefits do you think the kids get from taking part in the team? 

The children benefit in a lot of ways by forming new friendships, having great social experiences, engaging in regular exercise and most importantly have loads of fun.

As grassroots football is non funded and relies on fundraising and sponsorships, I would like to say a big 'thank you' to Emma Wilson who is our teams’ Admin Co-Ordinator who works hard to organise fund raising events for our team. I also want to say a massive 'thank you' to Ross Care for sponsored our team for their 1st football kit.
