11 Mar 2021 : Chairman's Update - Week 7
As I'm sure you are already aware, the Runcorn Linnets Trust Board made the decision to rollover all 2020/21 season tickets to the 2021/22 season. The last year or so has been a difficult time for the club with two prematurely ended seasons and during that time our fans have been amazing and we wanted to reward those fans who pay for a season ticket and didn't get to see a full season of football.
Without our fans there is no Runcorn Linnets Football Club and we want you all to know how important you are to us. We will hopefully be announcing some more season ticket initiatives in the coming months to get more fans inside the Millbank.
The time has finally come when I can say this is the last time I will talk to you about floodlights! The broken bulb has been replaced and the capacitors have been replaced on all the floodlight columns, so we don't have a repeat of the floodlight outage or the fire that it caused.
When football returns to the Millbank, all floodlights will be working and hopefully we won't have any need for temporary floodlights again.
Runcorn Linnets Ladies
As Monday was International Women's Day, I wanted to say a few words about our Ladies team. They are an important part of Runcorn Linnets Football Club and we are very proud of all their achievements, including gaining promotion to the North West Women's Regional League, Division 1 South last season.
The new Hybrid Pitch has allowed them to play their home games at the Millbank where they belong, and I have enjoyed watching them play there. Their contribution to the club is about more than just on the pitch though. They are always willing volunteers when called upon, they treat fans, volunteers and club officials with respect and they always represent the club well.
I look forward to seeing the team develop under John Pickering and his coaching team, I'm sure there are great things to come from them.
Chat with the Chairman
As I have said a few times, our fans are really important to this football club and I want you all to feel involved, appreciated and above all, heard. So, I want to hear from you. Whether you have a question you want to ask me or you have a suggestion you want to put to me, please get in touch.
Use the below link to get in touch and I will reply to you personally.
Request to chat
We are slowly getting closer to the end of COVID-19 restrictions and when we can welcome you all back to the Millbank. We hope you will all be surprised and happy with some of the changes we have made and plan to make.
Calum will be confirming his preseason plans once we know what is happening with the pitch, but the league season is due to begin either the 7th or 14th August.
Until then, stay safe and stay well.
