Position : Midfield
Michael (or Simmo as he is commonly known) has been a driving force of the Linnets' rise to prominence over recent seasons with his non-stop play being instrumental in the club finally becoming Hallmark Security League Premier Division champions in 2017-18.
A hard (and fast) worker in both attack and defence, Michael has taken a central midfield role after spending much of his early time at the club as a right back. In both positions, he has demonstrated a knack for scoring a spectacular goal.
Michael returned to the Millbank Linnets Stadium in December 2016. He had first signed for the Linnets in September 2012 and again in July 2015.
His first two spells with Runcorn Linnets saw him make a total of 96 appearances with nine goals. By the end of 2017-18, Michael had increased these figures to 154 outings and 23 goals.
A one-time Academy player at Football League club Bury, Simmo played in the Northern Premier League with Skelmersdale United for two years before initially joining the Linnets. He went back to Skem in August 2014 but stayed for just one season.
Returning for his third stint with the Linnets five days before Christmas 2016, Simmo had spent the first half of the 2016-17 campaign in the Evo-Stik League at Prescot Cables.
Someone who possesses a terrific 'engine', Simmo offers versatility as well as energy, he was a member of the Linnets team which won the NWCL Challenge Cup in May 2013.
Runcorn Linnets would like to thank Adrian & Reg who have kindly sponsored Michael Simpson.
