The era of Stan Storton. The club won the Cheshire Senior Cup again in 1973/74. The following year, they retained the Senior Cup and added the NPL Cup, as the team became one of the strongest in the league. The season after - 1975/76 - the club won their first NPL league title, and took their third league scalp - Southport - in 1977/78, with the NPL Cup won again in 1979/80. In this season, the Alliance Premier League (now Nationwide Conference) was formed, with Runcorn surprisingly left out.
For those fans who made the journey to Mossley for the FA Cup tie on Saturday, 3 September 2011, this picture will be of interest. It show Mossley versus Runcorn on 27 August 1975, a game which the Linnets lost 3 -2. Barry Whitbread is clearly shown in the photo as is Leo Skeete for Mossley. Thanks to Bill Raftery for this and the next 2 photos.
