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.

Add your support for the FSF's #ShareTVWealth campaign!

The Premier League has signed a new TV mega-deal worth £5.14bn, and that's just for UK rights. The increase from the last domestic deal alone equates to £40+ for every fan, at every game; top-flight clubs have to bring down ticket prices and support lower-league/grassroots football. There are five billion reasons why clubs should #shareTVwealth!

Fans demand that clubs:

  • Drop prices for home fans
  • Commit to the FSF's Twenty's Plenty away price cap
  • Redistribute more wealth to support lower-league and grassroots football

The Football Supporters' Federation have launched a Share TV Wealth petition here, so why not lend it your support?
