17 Nov 2018 : Two new signings for Runcorn Linnets

The club is pleased to announce and welcome two new signings ahead of this afternoon's game.

Liam Morris, 24, joins us from Litherland REMYCA, having made his debut for them last weekend. Meanwhile, 23-year-old Jack Hinnigan arrives from Warrington Town.

Linnets manager Michael Ellison said of the new recruits:

"Liam is a young, versatile midfielder with great potential. He can play in a number of positions; he was a scholar at Everton and then a pro at Bolton before being released in the summer. He's very good technically and has an eye for goal.

"Jack is a left-sided centre half, who's good in the air and comfortable with the ball at his feet. His previous clubs include Warrington and he has played for Ashton Town in the Counties."

We wish both players every success while hoping they enjoy their time with us.

06 Nov 2018 : Connor McCarthy is our Bowland Brewery Player of the Month for October

Rarely does a new signing at a football club make an impact as immediate and telling as Connor McCarthy has done at Runcorn Linnets.

When boss Michael Ellison secured Connor's signature, his comment was "This is a huge signing for us", and he couldn't have been more accurate.

He is our choice as Bowland Brewery Player of the Month for October.

In a month, which saw striking options often heavily restricted due to injuries, Connor at times seemed to be leading a one-man charge.

His pace and strength provided crucial goals, assists for others while his hold-up play allowed the team to settle and reshape.

In the narrow away win at Kendal, Connor turned in a match-winning performance, despite a below par showing from the Linnets on the day.

Latching onto a defensive lapse at the start of the second half, Connor opened the scoring before a driving run into the penalty area resulted in him being brought down for a spot kick, which Danny O'Brien converted to secure the win.

Connor made it back to back man-of-the-match performances with a telling contribution in the stunning 1-6 victory at Colne. Scoring the fourth goal and creating the sixth were just a snapshot of his overall display on the day.

He then earned high praise for his tireless efforts in the 2-1 defeat at Prescot Cables. Following strike partner Freddie Potter's early dismissal and Mike Simpson also seeing red before half-time, it was left to Connor to single handedly try to hold up the play as best as he could in a one-man Linnets attack.

He chased and harried the Cables defence whenever the ball was cleared by the Runcorn defence.

The final fixture of the month was a Cheshire Senior Cup home tie against Vauxhall Motors and again Connor was a key figure in the second 6-1 victory of October.

He had already created a goal for Bobby Evans in the first half by the time he rounded off a magnificent month's football with an audacious goal of his own.

Picked out by Niall Watson's low cross to the near post, Connor turned on the spot and back-heeled the ball into the net with his first touch - leaving the Motors goalkeeper and watching crowd mesmerised.

Congratulations Connor on a well-deserved award!
