11 Jun 2018 : Mark Houghton will extend long stay but surgery must come first

Club vice-captain Mark Houghton, already one of the longest-serving players in Runcorn Linnets' history, is to continue with the club - although the resumption of his Millbank career will inevitably be delayed.

Striker Houghto last season became only the third to pass the 200 games landmark with the club, following our record appearances holder Matt Atherton and the now Linnets manager Michael Ellison.

The deputy skipper has committed for the forthcoming campaign.

An excellent club man, the former Southport player looks set, however, to miss the start of the forthcoming campaign as he needs surgery on a troublesome groin injury.

'Houghto was hampered by the problem for much of the season just ended,' said team boss Ellison.

'He was prepared to battle through in typically unselfish fashion. However, it has reached the stage now where the injury needs sorting.

'The downside is that he will miss the start of the season but the positive is we can expect to get back a fully fit Houghto, firing on all cylinders.'

The manager added: 'We will need our senior players and having Mucker (Kyle Hamid), Paul Shanley, Louis Corrigan and Freddie (Potter) committing so early is a massive boost.'
