Match Report

10 Aug 2018 : Matt Atherton signs on after all

After an earlier announcement that Matt Atherton had left the club, we are very pleased to report that our record appearances holder Matt Atherton has signed forms for Runcorn Linnets once again.

He will, however, be with us on a dual registration with Euxton Villa, the West Lancashire League club he rejoined this summer in a player-coaching capacity, having served them in his youth.

09 Aug 2018 : Ace marksman Zack Dale signs from Ashton United on dual registration

The Hallmark Security League's reigning Player of the Year will enhance Runcorn Linnets' goal threat after joining for their EVO-STIK League debut.

Zack Dale was voted the outstanding individual performer over the 2017-18 North West Counties Premier Division season and has now signed for the club which won the title.

He arrives at Linnets after netting 34 times for Barnoldswick Town last season, earning more man-of-the-match awards than any other player in the Step 5 league.

Zack's scoring exploits earned him a summer return to Step 2 - with Ashton United, from where the striker/attacking midfielder has been recruited by Linnets on dual registration.

Zack, pictured with Linnets' club secretary Tracy Measor, is the second Vanarama National League North striker to also register with Runcorn this pre-season - the first being Adam Gilchrist, who is on the books of FC United of Manchester.

23-year-old Zack, born and bred in Burnley, is fresh from enjoying his best ever campaign in a career which has seen service to clubs on both sides of the Pennines.

He spent a year and a half at Barlick after returning to the game with Nelson, having sat out two seasons with a medial collatoral knee ligament rupture sustained while playing for Clitheroe.

Prior to that, Zack had been with Guiseley in Conference North and he has also played for Silsden and Colne.

Playing in all but two of Barnoldswick's 50 games last season, Zack finished fifth in the North West Counties top flight's goal charts.

He picked up 18 man of the match nominations on opposition votes - a single yellow card being the only blemish on an excellent disciplinary record over 48 appearances.

Welcome to Runcorn Linnets, Zack!

07 Aug 2018 : Patrons' pledges can help us to achieve our goals - Ello

Manager Michael Ellison has outlined in a message to Runcorn Linnets supporters the importance of our new Patrons Fund to further developing the club's title-winning first team.

He says:

"On behalf of the club and especially myself and all the management team, I'd first of all like to thank those fans who have already committed to our new Patrons Fund.

For those who are unaware, the new scheme was launched earlier in pre-season and is similar to initiatives already running at neighbouring/rival clubs to further support the manager by generating funds to finance the team.

Fans can pledge money either by a regular monthly payment or a one-off donation and every penny will help us to achieve our goals.

Fundraising and sponsorship is, in the current financial climate, becoming ever more difficult so we are even more grateful to all the companies, organisations and indivuduals who continue to support us.

To those people who aren't already involved with the Linnets, we'd love to see you at our games to further increase our growing attendances or using our excellent facilities or media to promote your company.

We are fortunate at Runcorn Linnets to have a very strong supporter base for a club at our level and the backing we receive was a big factor in us winning the title last season.

However, we are now stepping up to a higher level and will be competing in The EVO-STIK League this coming season against established clubs with significant resources to invest in their teams.

As you may welll know, we are a fans-owned club and while that has its benefits in terms of the club being run by supporters, it does mean that at present, we don't have any major financial backer.

The Patrons Fund is an ideal way of generating extra funds to help with team building by supplenenting the money that we receive through the turnstiles, our 200 Club, draws and raffles and also through our commercial deals.

Every contribution to the Patrons Fund will assist with our squad building as it will be ringfenced specifically for that very purpose.

It will give us a greater chance of success and could make all the difference to our hopes of building on† last season's title win that much quicker.

The club has done everything it can to give us an improved budget to work with but, at the same time, we as a management team fully understand it cannot commit money it does not have or needs to keep in reserve.

There is so much more financial commitment in running a club beyond funding the team - as I am sure you can appreciate, paying utility bills, affiliation fees, insurance and maintaining or improving the stadium does not come cheaply.

We need as many of our fans as possible to embrace the fan-owned concept of our club by supporting, volunteering, contributing and investing in whatever way they can.

We have this summer received the commitment from the bulk of last season's team and also brought in some very good new signings.

If you would like to give the club and team the best possible opportunity of maintaining and continuing the progress that has already been made on the field and off, please subscribe if you can to our Patrons Fund through either a one-off donation or a regular contribution over the 2018-19 season.

Whatever you can afford, big amounts or small, will be very gratefully received and much appreciated by me, Crossy, Salty and Lawty as we look to take the team to the next level.

Thank you everyone for your support and let's ensure we all do our very best to keep moving forward as a club."
