The pair were votged into their positions by shareholders at the club's annual AGM, held at Glanford Park on Monday evening.

Clemence began his career at the Old Showground in 1966 before joining Liverpool, where he was to make his name, a yeat later.

He spent 14 years at Anfield, winning the Championship title five times and the European Cup a stunning three times.

Skegness-born Clemence was awarded an MBE for his services to football, and had been involved with coaching the England setup until he was diagnosed with prostate cancer in February 2005.

Jacklin won two golfing Majors, in 1969 he became the first British winner of the Open for 18 years and is the only European to win the US Open since 1920.

He was involved in seven Ryder Cups as a player, but as the non-playing captain of Europe for four successive events he had a 2.5-1.5 winning record - including the first win for 28 years in 1985, and first victory in the US since the Second World War.

Jacklin finally retired from golf in 1004, at the grand old age of 60, and was inducted into the World Golf Fall of Fame in 2002.
