Welcome to the official website of Runcorn Linnets FC.

We are members of the EVO-STIK League (Northern Premier League). We joined for 2018-19 as Premier Division champions of the Hallmark Security League (North West Counties Football League).

We gained promotion to the EVO-STIK League West Division on our 12th Birthday (28th April 2018) by securing the minimum of a second place finish in the Hallmark Security League's top flight. We went on to finish four points clear.

We are a registered society under the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014 and were formed in the 2006 off-season by the fans of the now defunct Runcorn FC (which was playing under the name "Runcorn FC Halton" at the time). Although when we formed we were technically a "new" club, the Linnets were given special dispensation by the FA to be treated as a reformed version of Runcorn FC - the special dispensation was necessary as the old club had simply become dormant, choosing not to field a team, as opposed to ceasing to exist as a legal entity. We were awarded FA Charter Standard in October 2011.

A message from our commercial manager Rob Findlay

Greetings Linnets fans!

My name is Rob Findlay and I am delighted to have been appointed Commercial Manager for Runcorn Linnets Football Club, my Home town club and a club I have followed since a young boy!

I bring a wealth of business experience, having been a retail manager for 10 years and have spent the last eight years in my current full-time job working within the banking industry for one of the leading high street banks in the country.

It's an exciting time to be involved with the club and my aim is to support the chairman Mike Bignall and the Trust Board achieve their fantastic plans to develop the club.

Increasing our commercial reach and revenue will also help the management team of Michael Ellison and Matt Cross to accelerate their plans for progression on the field.

Recently you may have seen the news of our partnership with Jem Recycling Group. This came about through Lesley-Anne Hannon who some of you may know (as one of our supporters and volunteers).

She set up a meeting with her boss, Phil Robinson and I was able through Lesley-Anne's support, to help Phil understand the growth of Runcorn Linnets FC over recent years and also the desire and potential for further growth as we move forwards.

This is a great club with great potential. We have a lot to offer large and small businesses alike. Can you make a difference through your place of work like Lesley-Anne? Let me know!

I have launched a commercial twitter page, this has been a great success early doors - attracting new sponsorship and growing work with existing sponsors. I am building a Commercial Department piece by piece and I believe there are lots of opportunities within the town to develop the club even further.

Look out for more developments that will be announced soon.

If you would like to contact me about commercial opportunities, you can reach me on twitter via @CommercialRLFC or†email

I would love to hear from you!


Rob Findlay
