26 Jul 2018 : Wait is worthwhile as Cup king Kurt rejoins Runcorn Linnets

Runcorn Linnets' FA Cup record breaker Kurt Sherlock has rejoined the EVO-STIK League newcomers ahead of their season- opening extra preliminary round tie at Hallam in little more than a fortnight's time.

The striker's five goals in a home replay against Glasshoughton Welfare at the same stage of the competition in 2015-16 ranks as a Linnets club best goals haul for any game in the competition.

Kurt, 26, has been training with Linnets throughout the close season, playing in friendlies as an anonymous if easily recognisable trialist, with fans patiently waiting for news of his possible return.

This was duly confirmed this afternoon when he put pen to paper to secure a comeback to the club after a two-season absence, which has seen him play in Vanarama National League North for Stalybridge Celtic, Marine and Radcliffe in the EVO-STIK League and Welsh Premier League outfit Aberystwyth Town.

Kurt is a hard-working striker with an eye for a spectacular strike - none better than his ultra long-range effort for Linnets at Abbey Hey in September 2015, voted the club's Goal of the Season.

He played in the North West Counties Football League for a number of seasons, representing Formby and Bootle before initially joining the Linnets in December 2014, scoring 17 times in 56 appearances.

Linnets' FA Cup tie at Toolstation Northern Counties East League Division One side Hallam is on Sunday, August 12th (ko 3pm).
