26 Aug 2017 : Supporters pay tribute to the late Jean Clare
Runcorn Linnets observed a period of silence before last night's game against Winsford United in memory of Jean Clare, who passed away earlier in the week after a long illness.
Jean was very well known to fans from her long service in the canteen at Runcorn AFC matches.
Jean ran the canteen in the Supporters Club building at Canal Street for many years, firstly alongside her father, Jack Howard and later with her daughter, Julie.
She was also actively involved with the reserve team of the 1970s and '80s, meticulously laundering, mending and maintaining the kit.
At the time, her husband Terry was reserve team secretary and subsequently chairman.
On the disbanding of the reserves, Jean and Terry became regulars on the Linnets Travel Club, following the first team all over the country.
Terry, who has a long association with the Cheshire County and Runcorn District FAs, is a regular at Runcorn Linnets' home matches. In later life, Jean joined Terry in supporting the county youth team.
The funeral is on Wednesday, September 6th with the service at Holy Trinity Church in Runcorn at 2.30pm being followed by cremation at Walton Lea.
Donations are being accepted for Halton Haven and Myeloma Society UK.
All at the club extends deepest sympathies to Terry, son Michael and daughter Julie.
