Runcorn Linnets FC is a club that is run by a Trust. The Trust is an Industrial and Provident Society, and is registered with the FSA (Financial Services 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 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.
If you would like to join the Trust, then you can download an application form. Simply fill it out, and forward it to the address at the top of the form. If you prefer, you can pay your membership fee using Google Checkout, using our Payment page.
In the coming months we hope to be able to provide extra benefits to being a Trust member, over and above the ability to vote on club matters. If you have any suggestions as to what sort of benefits you would like to see the Trust offer, or have any comments about the Trust, then please fill in the form below.
If you provide your eMail address (please type it carefully), then we will attempt to respond to you directly.
