18 Jun 2019 : Prolific marksman Jamie Rainford joins Runcorn Linnets

Runcorn Linnets manager Michael Ellison has drafted in a player with both a proven goalscoring record and winning mentality by capturing experienced striker Jamie Rainford from league rivals, Ramsbottom United.

Jamie is a well-travelled, successful EVO-STIK performer, who has scored regularly where ever his career has taken him.

Last season saw him finish joint second in the West Division charts with 22 goals, including one penalty, while serving Widnes, Clitheroe and Ramsbottom.

Jamie made his EVO-STIK debut for Rammy as we won 3-2 at The Harry Williams Riverside Stadium on December 1st and hit their winner at the Millbank Linnets Stadium on March 30th - the 2-1 comeback victory ultimately helping the visitors to secure fifth place, the final play-off spot.

This was Jamie's seventh goal in six matches, earning him the Rams' Player of the Month award.

The player had ended the previous season with Colwyn Bay, having joined the Welsh club from Glossop North End in February 2017.

The now 31-year-old hit 29 goals for the Hillmen in EVO-STIK League Division One North in 2015-16.

Jamie first came to prominence with Prescot Cables, where he stayed for close to two seasons, before transferring to Marine.

His career really took off at this point with the then youngster's 28 goals in 2010-11 drawing attention from Football League scouts.

His former clubs also include Chester, FC Halifax Town in Conference (now National League) North and AFC Fylde.

Linnets manager Michael Ellison said:

"Jamie's goalscoring record speaks for itself and it's clear what he's going to bring to the side apart from his goals - he brings with him a wealth of experience, a winning mentality and it's an understatement to say I'm delighted to have him on board."
