"The memory I keep from the Crusaders is a place of shelter, a safe haven for youth in the city...That was the place I could be vulnerable yet comfortable, knowing someone (either within the players, coaches or staff) would help find a solution to my problems, even those that were not sport related."
Vidal Kenmoe - Douala, Cameroon
Former Crusaders youth player and community coach
"I couldn't have imagined the impact the Crusaders would have on my life, when I walked through those double doors that first Saturday...The exceptional level of coaching, the inclusiveness of everyone involved and the friendly competitive atmosphere was exactly what I needed."
Dean Smith - Coventry, England
Former Crusaders youth player
"These (former Crusaders coaches) are some of the people who opened my eyes, challenged me to become someone, without them I wouldn’t be me...These guys shaped me and continue to shape the lives around me and always will."
Victor White - Nuneaton, England
Former Crusaders youth player
