It’s Members Monday! Every week, we showcase and reward the club’s loyal members on hullfc.com and social media channels.
As Hull FC take on St Helens this Friday night, playing for the Steve Prescott Cup, this week’s Member of the Week is Linzi Prescott.
Linzi is the wife of former Hull and Saints player Steve Prescott MBE, who sadly passed away in 2013.
Both teams will be playing for the Steve Prescott Cup on Friday night, and Linzi says she always looks forward to coming back to Hull after Steve had two stints with the Black and Whites as a player.
“I’m really looking forward to Friday evening, I love Hull having spent a long time there and the boys are excited for it too as they were born in Hull,” she said.
“We spent around eight years in the city, and even when Steve moved to Wakefield we stayed there and he travlled every day.
“We absolutely loved it over in Hull, we made some good friendships and the people at the club are fantastic.”
Steve began his career with St Helens before moving on to Hull followed by a brief spell with Wakefield, before returning to FC for the final two years of his career.
Having experienced the Hull fans during Steve’s time with the club, Linzi says the FC fans hold a special place in her heart.
“From day one since Steve first signed for Hull FC, the fans have been amazing,” she said.
“Steve was someone who always gave his all when he was playing and he always received a brilliant reception.
“He loved both clubs and it’s really special that he can be honoured with the Steve Prescott Cup. Both teams hold a special place in our hearts and we’ve got all our family coming over for the game on Friday. It’ll be a special occasion.”
This year marks 10 years since the Steve Prescott Foundation was launched and there are a number of events lined up to commemorate it.
“This year is our 10-year celebration of the foundation and we’ve got a music festival planned at the Totally Wicked Stadium in July, with some good bands lined up and Johnny Vegas will be hosting it.
“I’ve also signed up to do Kilimanjaro again along with the St Helens Triathlon, too.”
