06 May 2017 : Vice-presidencies awarded to founder board members Derek, Lynn and Rob

Runcorn Linnets have made three former long-serving club officials vice-presidents of the fans-owned club after their retirements from the Trust Board.

Derek Greenwood, Lynn Johnston and Rob Johnston had all done tireless and magnificent work as chairman, club secretary and board member for ground maintenance, respectively.

The honours were conferred on the trio at last night's senior presentation evening and they were fittingly joined on stage at The Heath Business and Technical Park by Derek's wife and club volunteer, Jenny to also receive cards and gifts.

This brings the number of vice-presidents at Runcorn Linnets to five and coincided with Derek, Lynn and Rob receiving the club's Vice-President's Award from club chairman, Mark Buckley, on behalf of inaugural vice-presidents Steve Pritchard and Stuart White.

On presenting the award amid rapturous and prolonged applause from an audience brought to its feet, Mark said: "It's a most special award for the most special people".

Derek stepped down from the board in mid-February with Lynn and Rob at the same time announcing their retirements at the end of the 2016-2017 season.
