Alwoodley FC Respond To PPE Shortage

Alwoodley FC, a North Leeds based football club established in 1999 and who compete in the Supreme Division of the Yorkshire Amateur Association Football League have recently responded to the coronavirus pandemic. They have been working to create visors, an essential piece of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for those working on the NHS frontline.

Alwoodley FC players Damir Mulavdic, Lewis Burrows, James Turner, Tom Ruane, Warren Clarke, Danny Ashton & Danny Whincup were involved in making the visors which were sent out across the Leeds district, including to St James’ hospital.

Club Secretary Damir Mulavdic commented:
“One of our former players Lewis Burrows asked if anybody at the club could help out with making visors at Carr Manor school. The response was fantastic with players, partners and family members willing to help out for a great cause.”
