03 Sep 2017 : Runcorn Linnets youth teamer Kasie Jones earns promotion to senior squad

Runcorn Linnets have signed 16-year-old midfielder Kasie Jones from the club's newly-forned Youth team on Hallmark Security League forms.

Kasie has now officially joined the first-team squad after training with the senior players for the last month.

In that time, he has really impressed the management team with his ability and maturity and he is rated very highly.

Kasie joined the Linnets in the summer, having been with Crewe Alexandra.

He has been an integral part of the youth team, which has expanded and enhanced our junior section with a view to bridging the gap to Michael Ellison's senior squad.

The team has made an excellent start in the West Cheshire League with maximum points from the first two games after Saturday's 5-2 defeat of West Kirby United Youth.

The Linnets Youth squad was chosen en bloc to represent Runcorn & District in the Cheshire FA's Inter District tournament and as a result three of our players, including Kasie, have been selected to represent the County.

The other players to earn call ups are Luke Cawley and Eden Gumbs.

Kasie was on the first-team bench for Saturday's 6-1 HSL Premier Division victory over Padiham and will be available for the youth and first teams as part of his continuing development.

Club chairman, Mark Buckley said: 'This is an excellent opportunity for Kasie and is further evidence of our manager Michael Ellison's wilingness to bring young players through and help them to progress.

'It is also a significant move for the club as we prepare to transfer into our new clubhouse, which will accommodate and meet the needs of our men's, women's and junior teams.'
