Position : Management
Crossy returned to the Linnets in his role as assistant manager to Michael Ellison in July 2016, after the resignation of Stu Humphreys. He previously had a spell as a player, signing in December 2012.
He is a popular figure at the Millbank Linnets Stadium, having scored a superb overhead kick in one of his opening games for the club which went viral on YouTube.
Matt started his career in the Football League at a young age playing for Barnsley and Hereford United before moving over to Bangor City to play in the Welsh League.
He has gained Northern Premier League experience with Trafford, Bamber Bridge, Salford City and Warrington Town and won the First Division North with Witton Albion in the 2011/2012 season.
He joined Runcorn Linnets FC in December 2012 and won the club's Goal of the Season award during the 2012-2013 campaign.
Matt played against Linnets for Padiham in a never-to-be-forgotten last day of the 2015-16 season as we again narrowly missed out on promotion to the Evo-Stik League despite a convincing victory.
Runcorn Linnets would like to thank Neil Greenwood who has kindly sponsored Matt Cross.
