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.

Further additions to Historial Archive

Thanks to Brenda Jenkin (daughter of Phil Tyler) and Dave Rose for more excellent updates to our archive. Brenda has lent us a number of photos relating mainly to the 1950s (with a number featuring members of the supporters club at that time) and the early 1960s. There is also an additional photo from the 1930s. Dave's action photos cover the late 1970s and early 1980 period in the main with a number featuring grounds well known to Linnets fans in those days such as Enfield, Stafford, Bath and Scarborough. Brenda has also kindly donated a scrap book from her grandfather and there will be further updates from this in the next few days featuring items from the 1930s and 1940s.

Funeral of former Runcorn AFC vice-chairman Tony Bamber

The funeral of former Runcorn AFC director and vice-chairman Tony Bamber is to take place on Saturday, June 6. A service at St Michael's and All Angels Church, Greenway Road, Runcorn, at 9.30am will be followed by committal at Runcorn Cemetery.

It is requested that flowers are sent by family and close friends only. Any donations will be for Macmillan Nurses.

Match day admission and season tickets 2015-16

The Trust Board of Runcorn Linnets FC at its May meeting earlier this week set first-team admission prices for the 2015-16 campaign along with the cost of season tickets.

Adult admission will be £6. This represents the first increase since the club re-formed in 2006 – the £5 charge implemented upon the Linnets' return to Runcorn in 2010 and maintained for the last five seasons being 50p less than the price supporters paid during the club's tenancy at Witton Albion FC.

Club chairman Derek Greenwood said: "The board has endeavoured to hold down the admission prices for as long as possible but fans will appreciate that running costs and particularly our utility bills have increased considerably over the last nine years.

"The new admission price brings us into line with a number of other clubs in the North West Counties League.

"We are sure our loyal fans will agree that attending games at the Millbank Linnets Stadium will continue to represent tremendous value for money thanks to the excellent standard of football the team has produced and maintained under Joey Dunn's management and also the high quality of facilities we offer."

Concessionary admission will remain at £3. This is applicable to those supporters aged 65 and over, 17-18 year olds and to students in full-time education on production of a student card.

We will continue to offer free entry to accompanied Under 16s while anyone holding a Halton Leisure Card will still receive a £2 discount on the full (adult) admission price.

As a result of the price increase, adult season tickets to cover all home league games will cost £102. Season-ticket holders will, however, now receive four free matches instead of the customary three.

The cost of a concessionary season ticket is unchanged at £54.

To help spread the costs for fans, half-season tickets are available at £51 (adults) and £27 (concessions). These cover the first 11 or second 10 league games at the MLS.

Supporters can apply for a season ticket (or half-season ticket) by sending a cheque for the correct amount, payable to "Runcorn Linnets FC", along with a self-addressed envelope to:
