The Northern Premier League

Welcome

Welcome to the official website of Runcorn Linnets FC.

We are members of the Pitching In Northern Premier League and play in Division One West, reaching the play-off final in 2021-22 season. We had secured our place in the NPL for the 2018-19 campaign after promotion as Premier Division champions of the Hallmark Security League (North West Counties Football League). 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 AFC (which was playing under the name "Runcorn FC Halton"). Although technically a "new" club, Runcorn Linnets were given special dispensation by the FA to be treated as a reformed version of Runcorn AFC. The predecessor club had at that time simply become dormant - choosing not to field a team, as opposed to ceasing to exist as a legal entity, although Runcorn Association Football Club Limited has since been dissolved. Runcorn Linnets were awarded FA Charter Standard in October 2011.
