30 Oct 2020 : Loan star Lloyd Marsh-Hughes signs in at The Millbank

Runcorn Linnets have taken teenage striker Lloyd Marsh-Hughes on loan from Vanarama National League North side Chester.

The 19-year-old, who lives in Abergele, North Wales, is a highly-rated protege of Calum McIntyre - graduating from the Chester Academy under our now manager's guidance.

Lloyd burst onto the first team scene, scoring his first senior goal, aged just 16, in a pre-season friendly at Bala Town in summer 2017.

A powerful and pacy 6ft 1in frontman, Lloyd went on to make his first senior start in the home league game against Curzon Ashton in January of last year and also made 12 substitute appearances across the season.

After signing his maiden senior deal three months later, Lloyd missed the first part of the 2019-20 through an injury sustained in pre-season.

He moved on loan to Marine in October in a bid to get some valuable game time.

Coming of the bench, Lloyd crowned his debut for former Chester manager Neil Young's side with a cracking goal in a 6-0 defeat of Mossley in NPL North West.

However, he was injured early in the next game against Marske United, causing his stay at College Road to be cut short.

In September 2020, Lloyd returned to Marine Travel Arena, scoring one of the goals in the 4-0 win which rounded off Chester's pre-season programme.

He looked high on confidence having also been on target earlier in the week against Cheadle.

Lloyd appeared as a substitute when Chester visited The Millbank for a friendly ahead of the 2018-19 season.

21 Oct 2020 : Linnets snap up ex-Tranmere teenager Carl Spellman

We extend a warm Runcorn Linnets welcome to Carl Spellman, our second new signing of the day.

Carl is a 19-year-old defender or defensive midfieldman, who was previously on the books of Tranmere Rovers where he signed professional forms on completing his scholarship.

He made three first-team appearances for the Prenton Park outfit, having played for them at Under-18s level.

Carl's senior debut came in central midfield in Rovers' National League game at Solihull Moors in April 2018. He had two EFL Cup outings for the then League One (now League Two) club last season.

A midfield start in Rovers' 3-2 second-round victory over Manchester United Under 23s was followed by an appearance at centre back in a 2-1 loss to visiting Leicester City U23s.

Carl also has been on the bench for six league games (seven times in all) over the last couple of seasons.

21 Oct 2020 : Defender Alex Downes returns to the NPL with Runcorn Linnets

Runcorn Linnets manager Calum McIntyre has signed versatile 20-year-old defender Alex Downes from Colwyn Bay.

Alex is a graduate of the Chester Academy, and already has experience of Northern Premier League football through loan spells at Ramsbottom United as well as the Bay, who are now members of JD Cymru North.

Alex subsequently joined the Seagulls on a permanent basis and his performances in the shortened 2019-20 season prompted the award of their Supporters Player of the Year trophy.

Alex is our second recent arrival from the Bay following that of their captain, midfielder Tom McCready. The Welsh club has been unable to start the 2020-21 season due to virus restrictions.

The signing of Alex is subject to international clearance.
