12 Jun 2018 : Boss tips Mitch Bryant to take big chance to shine

Manager Michael Ellison reckons Runcorn Linnets fans will see front man Mitch Bryant's true capabilities in the season ahead.

Having joined the club last summer, the former Conference South striker spent much of his first season on the fringes of selection.

However, Ello has proved to be an excellent judge of players since becoming boss at The Millbank and he firmly believes that Mitch will make a significant impact next time around.

'We have all seen glimpses of what he can do,' said the manager, 'and I have no doubt that he can and will produce that kind of form on a regular basis if he gets an extended run in the side.'

With last season's second top goal scorer Stuart Wellstead departing the Linnets to enter management and long-serving deputy skipper Mark Houghton set to sit out the early part of the season because of impending groin surgery, there is every possibiility of Mitch playing a bigger part.

Ellison admits that bolstering his depleted strikeforce is high on the list of priorities. But he is also confident that Mitch, who once hit six in a game for Basingstoke Town in the second tier of English non-league, will relish a return to Northern Premier football.

Mitch has previously represented Mossley, Trafford and Clitheroe in the EVO-STIK divisions.

Ellison adds: 'Mitch has played and proved himself at a much higher level and I believe with a good pre-season behind him, the rise in standard which the EVO-STIK brings will again suit him and really bring out the best in the player.

'He was very keen to stay and he certainly has the ability, strength, experience and knowhow. I am expecting big things from him next season.'
