25 Sep 2020 : Mossley fixture is reversed amid Covid concerns
The club has been in discussions throughout the week with Halton Borough Council and other relevant parties, in light of the updated Covid-19 restrictions announced for Halton this week - and particularly about the implications for Runcorn Linnets, following a sharp rise in cases within the borough over recent days.
Agreement has been made between all parties, including Mossley FC and the Pitching In Northern Premier League, for Tuesday evening's scheduled North West Division fixture to be reversed.
Instead of playing at The Millbank Linnets Stadium, we will therefore now play our away league fixture at Mossley on Tuesday, ko 7.45pm.
This creates more time for ongoing discussions to be concluded and for Runcorn Linnets to implement any additional measures required.
The switch will mean us hosting Mossley later in the season, the NPL having already rearranged the home game for April 10th (the intended date for our visit to Seel Park).
Our primary concern is, and always will be, the safety and well-being of everyone associated with the club and the community - concerns that are obviously shared by Halton Borough Council and other partners involved in the discussions.
We will provide further updates on the situation, including news on other upcoming home fixtures, after further dialogue early next week.
In the meantime, we thank Halton Council, Cheshire Police, Public Health England, the Pitching In NPL and our colleagues from Mossley for their guidance, help and consideration.
Refunds to those fans, who have already bought tickets for the Mossley home game, are being arranged and processed.
