Position : Midfield
Tom put pen to paper after giving an eye-catching midfield performance and scoring the opening goal in our 2019-20 pre-season win at Barnton.
The player's transfer to The Millbank ended a long Linnets wait for his signature as Tom had first appeared for the club as a 2019 summer triallist.
An experienced player who has starred on both sides of the Atlantic, Tom is the founder and Head Coach of Tom Owens UK, a coaching school which has supported high-level professional players.
The 27-year-old has also worked for Liverpool FC's International Football Academy in USA.
Tom, a native of Halewood, spent five months playing for Radcliffe Borough (now Radcliffe FC) in late 2017 but much of his playing career in England was served at Preston North End with a near seven-year stint in their Youth Academy ending in 2010.
In the States, Tom mixed playing and coaching with academic life, gaining degrees at Notre Dame College in Ohio and Quincy University, Illinois - enjoying success as a player on the college scene.
At club level, he captained Michigan Bucks to two national championships in the USL Premier Development League, the fourth tier of the American soccer pyramid.
Tom has also played for Cleveland United and in Ontario, Canada for FC London.
In 2017-18, Tom was at Aberystwyth Town, reaching the 2018 Welsh Cup final, and in January 2019, he moved to fellow Welsh Premier League club Llandudno from where he joined us.
Runcorn Linnets would like to thank Hedley Edwards who has kindly sponsored Tom Owens.
