Welcome

Welcome to the official website of Runcorn Linnets FC.

We are members of the BetVictor Northern Premier League and were placed in Division One North/West for 2019-20 after the league's Step 4 boundaries were changed. We gained promotion to the League for 2018-19 as Premier Division champions of the Hallmark Security League (North West Counties Football League) on our 12th Birthday (28th April 2018) by securing the minimum of a second place finish in the Hallmark Security League's top flight. We went on to finish four points clear.

We are a registered society under the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014 and were formed in the 2006 off-season by the fans of the now defunct Runcorn FC (which was playing under the name "Runcorn FC Halton" at the time). Although when we formed we were technically a "new" club, the Linnets were given special dispensation by the FA to be treated as a reformed version of Runcorn FC - the special dispensation was necessary as the old club had simply become dormant, choosing not to field a team, as opposed to ceasing to exist as a legal entity. We were awarded FA Charter Standard in October 2011.

Linnets to hold matchday collection for Cardiac Risk in the Young in memory of Len

The club will be staging a minute's applause and holding a bucket collection in memory of veteran fan Len Fagan at our Buildbase FA Trophy home game against Pontefract Collieries on Saturday, October 26th.

Len, 84, passed away at the beginning of the month, having followed the Linnets since the Canal Street days of our predecessor club Runcorn AFC.

The game is a cup rematch against the club which provided the opposition in the last fixture Len attended - the league game on Saturday, October 5th at Pontefract.

The matchday collection will be in support of a Just Giving page set up by one of Len's granddaughters, Tash Williams.

This is raising funds for Cardiac Risk in the Young, also an official Northern Premier League charity.

The funeral service for Len is to take place at 1pm on Thursday, October 24th at St Edward's Church, Runcorn, followed by a wake at the Royal British Legion in Main Street, Halton Village. The family say anyone who wishes to attend is welcome.
