Zac Aley

Position : Midfield

One of the most pleasing moments at Runcorn Linnets last season came when Zac made his long-awaited return after injury.

Zac had missed all but the first four games of our title-winning NWCL campaign in 2017-18 so it was fantastic to see the former Blackburn Rovers professional back in the starting line-up.

After coming on as a substitute in October's crushing 6-1 win at Colne, he spent the rest of the season putting a 14-month injury nightmare behind him.

It obviously took time for Zac to get back up to full throttle yet he provided another campaign highlight with his explosive finish in the Cheshire Senior Cup home tie against Vauxhall Motors in November - Linnets, coincidentally, again triumphing 6-1.

Able to play in any position on the left, Zac brings versatility as well as balance plus strength, pace and experience. He is also one of the most effervescent characters around the club - his spirit and enthusiasm rubbing off on others.

Zac joined Runcorn in October 2016.

The Liverpool-born midfield player spent two years on professional forms at Blackburn Rovers. He he joined them in 2010, after coming through the youth ranks at Southport to make the first team at Haig Avenue.

While at Ewood Park, he had loan spells with Morecambe in League Two and Macclesfield Town - rejoining Southport, also on a temporary basis, in between.

On his release by Blackburn in summer 2012, Zac again returned to Southport on trial but subsequently moved to Warrington Town of the EVO-STIK League.

He later played for Northwich Victoria and in the North West Counties League for Ashton Town.

Runcorn Linnets would like to thank Joshua McCluskey who has kindly sponsored Zac Aley.
