06 Jun 2022 : Five more deals done by busy boss

It has been another action-packed evening, despite this being the close season, with new manager Dave Wild completing five more important pieces of business as he continues to plan for the campaign ahead.

Two further new signings have been announced, one of them a familiar face to Linnets fans already, while another three players from last season have signalled they are coming back for more.

The latest new recruits are Daryll Grant and Ben Halfacre, both having most recently played for Abbey Hey. The latter is returning for a second spell with Linnets.

Experienced striker Ben made 10 appearances for Runcorn in 2015-16. He has since served our new manager well at Stockport Town and Mossley.

In 2021-22, Ben netted 26 goals in 38 outings for Abbey Hey.

Defender Daryll Grant has played for Dave Wild at Stockport Town, his back story also including stints at Cheadle Town, Droylsden and three years in Australian football.

Daryll played for Manchester City as a junior and Manchester United in his youth. He can play at full back or in central defence.

The latest players from our 2021-22 squad to commit for the forthcoming campaign have all performed for us with distinction already.

We can't wait to see full backs Ally Brown and James Short plus midfieldman Jacques Welsh in our colours again.

Pictured clockwise from top left are Daryll Grant, Jacques Welsh, Ally Brown, James Short and Ben Halfacre.
