Matchday programme production switches to online only

Runcorn Linnets are ceasing production of printed matchday programmes, amid falling sales and rising losses.

The Trust Board made the decision after consulting with club members.

The profitability of the programmes has been declining year on year and in 2022-23, a substantial loss was reported on production.

Members were asked for their views and as a result, it was decided that the programmes will only be available online.

There will be free access to each edition via our social media channels.

Saturday editions will usually be available from noon and midweek issues from 5pm.

Anyone wishing to print a copy of the electronic programme is welcome to get in touch via club  social media or Contact Us on our website.

We will be happy to provide a printable version, although the printing of copies for sale is strictly prohibited.

Ste Bignall, Trust communications manager, said: "We understand that the decision to cease production of the traditional printed programmes will be disappointing to some, and signals something of a change in history.

"But, as a board, we felt it only right that the financial details of the programme were shared so Trust members could help decide on its future."

Seventy two per cent of participants in the members' survey were in favour of replacing the printed programmes with electronic issues.
