Information about the Trust
Runcorn Linnets FC is a club that is run by a Trust. The Trust is a registered society under the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014, and is registered with the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority). The Trust was originally set up as "The Linnets Independent Supporters Trust", or "LIST" for short, and was a Supporters Trust in aid of Runcorn AFC, known as Runcorn FC Halton at the time. In April 2006, when the fans decided to take the destiny of Runcorn FC into their own hands and set up Runcorn Linnets FC as a reformed Runcorn AFC, the nature of the Trust changed to one capable of running a football club. Becoming a Trust member gives you the ability to take part in the democratic running of the club. You will be able to vote members on and off the board, participate in the decision-making process, etc, and this is done on a purely one person, one vote basis. Regardless of the financial commitments that may have been made to the club by any individual, their vote is only as powerful as any other regular Trust member. Elections to the Trust Board are held annually in accordance with our constitution.
