24 Jun 2017 : Jack is Runcorn Linnets' latest signing - at a day old!

Runcorn Linnets have welcomed their newest - and youngest - Trust member into the football family.

Baby Jack Thomas Bignall was signed up this morning by proud dad, Ste at just a day old.

Jack is a second child for Ste and wife, Claire and came into the world two weeks early, weighing in at Whiston Hospital yesterday at a healthy 8lb 12oz.

Despite arriving ahead of schedule, Ste and Claire were both clearly well prepared.

Ste, who runs the Linnets Updates unofficial twitter feed and Linnets Podcast while also writing first-team match reports for our website and local newspapers, explained: 'I was wearing my 10th anniversary 3rd kit when Jack was born.

'So within minutes of being in the world, he was pressed up against a Linnets kit and his mum, Claire has had him a yellow and green hooped cardigan and bobble hat knitted, ready for his first game!'

Just like his three-year-old big sister, Annie who came to her first game at six weeks old (a friendly at Barnton), Jack will be continuing the Bignall family's long affiliation with the Linnets.

It now spans five generations and includes Runcorn AFC's first trainer, a club secretary (Ste's late dad, Dave), match day stewards, ball boys, a Trust Board member (Ste's brother, Mike) and a junior Linnets player in Mike's son Sam.

Dave Bettley, Trust secretary at the Linnets, said: 'Jack is certainly the youngest Trust member I have registered since I took on the  role and I very much doubt we have had any one younger since we relaunched as the fans-owned club 11 years ago.

'We'd like to congratulate Ste, Claire and Annie on their very happy news - while also giving baby Jack a special welcome and looking forward to him making his debut at The Millbank Linnets Stadium.

'We hope he grows up to be as staunch a supporter of the club as the rest of his family  - he certainly has every chance and probably no option!'
