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.

New Macron club shop - recommendations on sizing

We have had many positive comments after the opening of our new online club shop run by Macronstore Cheshire with our 10th anniversary away shirt and other Runcorn Linnets branded merchandise going down equally well.

As Italian sizes are not as generous as those in the UK, the general advice from the supplier is for supporters to choose one size larger than usual when placing their orders.
