20 May 2021 : Chairman's Update - Week 17

New League

As I am sure you've all seen our new league structure was released on Tuesday and we will be playing in the Northern Premier League West Division. There were a few surprises but overall, I think we have done well out of the restructure.

We have regained trips to the likes of Kidsgrove, Leek Town and Newcastle Town and retained the more local Manchester aways, as well as Kendal and Workington. We also welcome local clubs Bootle, 1874 Northwich and Warrington Rylands.

The new league set up is very similar to when we first gained promotion into the NPL and I'm sure it'll prove to be a competitive league.

Pre-Season

On Tuesday we also announced our pre-season schedule and I think Calum has put together a good mixture of fixtures.

As it has been so long since we have all been able to watch a game at the Millbank, the Board have made the decision to make the first home friendly against Euxton on 10th July free entry, as a welcome back to all our fans. We hope as many of you as possible can be there to see the improvements that have made and to see the quality team Calum is putting together.

Summer Survival Fund

Our application for a Summer Survival Fund Grant was successful and we will be receiving the full grant available of 10,000. This grant, along with the others we have received will help ensure we are ready to go once we are allowed to play in front of fans again.

These grants have been essential as we have been able to generate next to no income since our last home game in December.

Player Development

This has been a really exciting week for player development at the Linnets, our Under 21s team have been promoted, our ESPFA Academy team have won their league and progress to the National Championship and Eden Gumbs has been announced as committing to the Men's 1st team for the 2021/22 season.

To improve the pathway from the Linnets Juniors to the 1st team, we will be restructuring from next season with both the Under 18s and Under 21s moving from the Juniors to the Seniors set up and being rebranded as the Youth Team (Under 18s) and the Development Team (Under 21s). We hope that this will make the step up to the Men's 1st team easier and ensure that there are more Eden Gumbs to come.

As of next season the Juniors will be adding a Girls Under 18s team to bridge the gap from the Girls teams to the Ladies 1st team.

It is a really exciting time at the Linnets and I really cannot wait for next season to begin.

As always, stay safe and I'll see you soon.
