Runcorn Linnets have announced that Steve Dale has been appointed as their new club secretary, succeeding Lynn Johnston, who stood down at the end of the 2016-17 season.
Tracy Ryder takes the position of assistant club secretary, a role that she has fulfilled with success for the past two seasons.
Steve comes with a wealth of experience, and having moved to the area recently, he quickly earmarked Runcorn Linnets as his new “adoptive” club.
He has served in a variety of administrative and organisational positions at this level of football, including secretary, treasurer, and events manager, as well as football-related roles including coaching and refereeing.
His previous clubs include Leverstock Green FC and Edgware Town FC (both Spartan South Midlands League) and Steve has demonstrated a real passion for the game.
Steve Dale said: “I am very happy to be joining such a vibrant and well-supported local club. I hope to be able to bring my experience within football into Linnets and help to work towards a highly- successful future.”
Linnets chairman, Mark Buckley said: “We were really impressed not only with Steve’s experience at our level of football but also his enthusiasm to get involved in all aspects of helping the club.
“His ambition and drive match that of everyone involved at Runcorn Linnets and we are all really looking forward to working with him.”
