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.

Runcorn beat Atherton Collieries in the Hallmark Security League Premier Division at The Millbank Linnets Stadium with a score of 2-0. Mark Houghton put the Linnets ahead in the 32nd minute with a well-placed tap from inside the 6 yard box. Mark Houghton increased the Linnets' lead in the 45th minute from a lob that went straight over the 'keeper. Danny O'Brien sent off, apparently for a kick, but it wasn't obvious.
