12 May 2020 : Everyone's a winner from our Virtual Matches

Now our Virtual Matches are over and the prize draw has taken place, we would again like to thank everyone who took part - and invite all participants to give themselves a big, collective pat on the back!

The prize winners are shown here but Runcorn Linnets can now exclusively reveal there will be a surprise free gift (something money simply can't buy!) for all our virtual spectators!!

The club is commissioning a limited edition pin badge - depicting the Runcorn Linnets "Subbuteo" player (who features on our web updates).

These badges will not be on general sale but we'll have a badge each for everyone, who paid 5 admission at the turnstile for one or more of the virtual matches.

These are unusual and difficult times for us all - so this is just a little thank you to those, who joined in the fun and entered into the spirit on the long, football-free Saturdays and sent some welcome funds our way.

We had 194 individual match admissions over the five virtual games.

With 73 cups of coffee, 69 pie and chips, 111 pints, 89 Goalden Goals, 96 half-time draws being sold (and 77 being dropped into Sue's virtual bucket) 1,866 was raised on the virtual matchdays.

Match sponsorship took the overall proceeds to around 2,200 - every penny welcome during this lockdown, when we have bills to pay on a vastly-reduced income and no opportunity to hold fundraising events such as our summer Beer Festival.

The prize draw took place over the weekend with all virtual fans receiving one entry for each admission through the virtual turnstile and every season ticket holder automatically getting five entries.

Prizes (and badges) will be issued once we are back playing again, hopefully in the not too distant future.

Through the expertise of Non-League PES (England), Dave Broom from Linnets TV and Jack Walsh (Runcorn Linnets FC Supporters Group), we were also able to bring you some computer-generated action from the virtual games.

This was certainly enjoyed and appreciated by online viewers. We will provide fans with news and details of further close-season initiatives along with the latest updates on our new Hero - the carpet hybrid pitch, which will be in place when football resumes at the Millbank Linnets Stadium

In the meantime, stay safe everyone and once again, many thanks for all your support.
