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.

You can visit the Virtual Match page by clicking here, but the match items won't be available until Saturday 11th April.

Memories are made of this - put your Linnets knowledge to the test

To help break the boredom of these long football-free days, one of our vice-presidents (and former club chairman) Derek Greenwood is posting some reminders of Linnets days gone by in the Historical Archive.

Derek is the guardian of the Historical and Programme Archives on the website and author of the booklet "Once a Linnet...", published in 2018 to commemorate the first 100 years of Linnets football in our town.

The intention with this feature is through photos and other memorabilia to jog (and at times test) your memory of matters relating to original and present club.

Derek will add new items over the coming days and weeks.

We've simply called this new section "Memories" and are
sure this will rekindle many happy ones!

06 Apr : Easter wishes and thanks from Runcorn Linnets

Runcorn Linnets should be looking forward to the Easter holiday as one of our busiest footballing weekends of the season. But with a premature halt having been called in these unprecedented post-war times on a "null and void" campaign, we must instead patiently begin planning to start all over again in 2020-21 - without knowing with any certainty when play will resume.


26 Mar : Football Association declares 2019-20 Northern Premier League season over
