Welcome

Welcome to the official website of Runcorn Linnets FC.

We are a Trust-based club 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 at the time 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.

Feel free to view the latest news, and find out what's new on the site. If you have any suggestions, comments or questions, then please contact us using the Contact Us page.

Remember, if you are unable to make it to a match, then you can get the latest live score, plus mini-commentary by visiting this site during the game! If you can't get to a computer during the match, then you can have the details of the match at half and full time sent by text to your phone. You can get more details of this on the SMS page. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
