Welcome to the official website of Runcorn Linnets FC.

We are a registered society under the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014 and were formed in the 2006 off-season by the fans of the now defunct Runcorn FC (which was playing under the name "Runcorn FC Halton" at the time). Although when we formed we were technically a "new" club, the Linnets were given special dispensation by the FA to be treated as a reformed version of Runcorn FC - the special dispensation was necessary as the old club had simply become dormant, choosing not to field a team, as opposed to ceasing to exist as a legal entity.

We currently play in the North West Counties Football League, and were awarded Charter Standard in October 2011.

Historical Archive Updated

An addition has been made to the historical archive. We are most grateful to Mr Les Barnes, formerly of Runcorn, who now lives out in British Columbia in Canada, for sending us the history of the rugby club who were the predecessors of Runcorn FC at Canal Street and before that at other locations in the town. Les takes up the story: "The booklet was kept by my mother who was a Peers. I don't know whether she saved it from her side or my dad's side. I always thought as a kid that it was a history of the football club that I used to watch at Canal St as a boy in the 1960's. Lots of good memories"

Cleaning crew back on duty at MLS

The dates for the cleaning crew at The Millbank Linnets Stadium in September (all 10am) are Wednesday 3rd; Wednesday 10th and Monday 29th. New volunteers are always welcome to join the volunteer team, which looks after cleaning and tidying up the clubhouse and dressing rooms after first-team matches.
