09 Aug 2018 : Ace marksman Zack Dale signs from Ashton United on dual registration
The Hallmark Security League's reigning Player of the Year will enhance Runcorn Linnets' goal threat after joining for their EVO-STIK League debut.
Zack Dale was voted the outstanding individual performer over the 2017-18 North West Counties Premier Division season and has now signed for the club which won the title.
He arrives at Linnets after netting 34 times for Barnoldswick Town last season, earning more man-of-the-match awards than any other player in the Step 5 league.
Zack's scoring exploits earned him a summer return to Step 2 - with Ashton United, from where the striker/attacking midfielder has been recruited by Linnets on dual registration.
Zack, pictured with Linnets' club secretary Tracy Measor, is the second Vanarama National League North striker to also register with Runcorn this pre-season - the first being Adam Gilchrist, who is on the books of FC United of Manchester.
23-year-old Zack, born and bred in Burnley, is fresh from enjoying his best ever campaign in a career which has seen service to clubs on both sides of the Pennines.
He spent a year and a half at Barlick after returning to the game with Nelson, having sat out two seasons with a medial collatoral knee ligament rupture sustained while playing for Clitheroe.
Prior to that, Zack had been with Guiseley in Conference North and he has also played for Silsden and Colne.
Playing in all but two of Barnoldswick's 50 games last season, Zack finished fifth in the North West Counties top flight's goal charts.
He picked up 18 man of the match nominations on opposition votes - a single yellow card being the only blemish on an excellent disciplinary record over 48 appearances.
Welcome to Runcorn Linnets, Zack!
