21 Aug 2020 : Double loan deal completed by busy boss
Manager Calum McIntyre has continued his player recruitment ahead of tomorrow's first home friendly against Vauxhall Motors.
The new gaffer has drafted in two of his young proteges on loan from Chester FC, where both are on professional forms.
One of them needs no introduction to Runcorn supporters. Midfielder Louis Hayes was with us last season and has already renewed acquaintance with those who were likewise in our 2019-20 squad, at pre-season training and in warm-up matches.
Joining Louis at The Millbank this time around is striker Stuart Crilly.
Stuart has played for Chester in the Cheshire Senior Cup and spent time on loan last season at Prescot Cables in the NPL and NWCL Premier Division outfit Rylands (now Warrington Rylands 1906).
Hailing from Liverpool, Stuart is a versatile midfielder with a keen eye for goal – having joined Chester from Oldham in March 2017.
Halewood lad Louis gave a very good account of himself at Linnets last term, showing great energy, physicality and maturity.
He has also already featured in Chester's first team, having signed for the city club from Blackburn Rovers in May 2017.
For those fans, who have been avidly following our opening two friendlies via Linnets Live Radio, Louis Hayes has hitherto this summer been known as Trialist C and Stuart Crilly as Trialist F.
Both signed first senior deals at their parent club last year, being promoted from the Academy side managed by our now boss Calum.
They have been quick to make an impact since the resumption of football this month and we now look forward to seeing them prosper in the Yellow and Green.
Welcome, Stuart and welcome back, Louis!
