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 Hallmark Security Football League (North West Counties Football League), and were awarded Charter Standard in October 2011.

What's New?

Pitch working party from 11am on Saturday

The Millbank Linnets Stadium pitch has recovered well after the recent wet weather but will require some finishing off ahead of kick off to Saturday's first-team home game against Barnoldswick Town.

We are, therefore, calling a working party from 11am and would appreciate as many helping hands as possible. Please bring a garden fork if you can.

With temperatures expected to drop to zero degrees overnight, we will of course check on the condition of the playing surface on the morning of the game and issue updates as necessary.

Half price player sponsorship available

Sponsorship of some first-team players, including our latest signings, are available for sponsorship.

Now we are in the second half of the campaign,we have halved the cost to £25 per player.

Interested parties can visit the squad page to see which players are unsponsored, make their choice, click on the selected player and pay on his page.

If you have any queries or special requests with regards to sponsorship details, please get in touch through Contact Us.
