Welcome to the official website of Runcorn Linnets FC.

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

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.

Derek's history of the Linnets' 100 years is heading for a sellout - buy now to avoid disappointment

"Once a Linnet, Always a Linnet", our former club chairman Derek Greenwood's look at 100 years of Linnets footballing history, has been very well received with sales of the booklet having now passed 200 copies.

The print run was 250 so if you have been intending to buy a copy, but have not yet done so, now is  the time to act. You wouldn't want to miss out!

The booklets will continue to be on sale, while stocks last, from Derek, who will be in the clubhouse  immediately before and after first-team home games.

They are also available on line through the Purchase Page

The 72-page full colour scrapbook history costs £10 and every penny from sales will go directly to Runcorn Linnets FC.
