17 Jun 2018 : Kris Holt agrees terms for coming season

Kris Holt is looking forward to another tilt at EVO-STIK League football - this time with Runcorn Linnets.

All-action attacking midfielder Kris has committed to the Linnets' cause for 2018-19 after being a key component of last season's title success in The Hallmark Security League.

It will mean a relatively swift return to Step Four football, which he sacrificed in the first half of last season to rejoin the Linnets after a spell in the EVO-STIK with Atherton Colls.

The player's dual registration allowed him to answer a late-October SOS to play for the injury-ravaged Linnets in a home FA Vase replay against Team Northumbria.

He featured for good measure in the memorable win in the next round at Sunderland RCA in mid November. This helped to 100% convince Kris that The Millbank was the place he wanted to be.

Kris was amply rewarded with a major part in the Linnets' run to the Premier Division championship.

Manager Michael Ellison said: 'I think we all saw last season the kind of lad Holty is when he made that long midweek trip to Sunderland when he had been playing at Colls since the second game of the season.

'If you remember, he set up the winning goal for Mark Houghton.

'He has a great engine, excellent positional awareness and the important ability to score goals.'

The manager added: 'His previous spell in the EVO-STIK will have benefitted him and will also help us. It is always useful to have experience of the level you are going to be playing at and I have no doubt Kris will continue to be a big asset for us going forward.'
