24 May 2021 : Runcorn Linnets announce new Ladies First Team Manager
We are delighted to announce that Dave Todd has been appointed as the Runcorn Linnets Ladies Manager on a permanent basis. Toddy took over on an interim basis after the departure of long serving manager, John Pickering and has impressed Linnets Chairman, Dave Jones enough to be offered the job permanently.
Toddy has been with the Linnets since 2017 when he joined as a Juniors team manager for a season. The season after he linked up with Robbie Gibbons who was Under 14s manager. Gibbo and Toddy have spent three years working together as the team progressed to Under 18s and are in with a chance of winning the league this season. He is currently working towards his UEFA B license and is hopeful to have it completed this year. He also has a degree in Sports Coaching and Personal Development and has worked across Halton and Merseyside as a coach/manager since 2009.
Of the appointment, Runcorn Linnets Chairman, Dave Jones said, "Toddy originally started working with the Ladies team to help previous manager John Pickering whilst he was recuperating after an operation and then stepped up as Interim Manager after John stepped down. I've been really impressed with what I've seen from Toddy in his training sessions and the feedback I had received was really positive, so I was keen to offer him the role permanently and I'm delighted he accepted."
"We are trying to cultivate a one club mentality and it is really pleasing to be able to promote a coach from the Juniors to one of our first teams. Along with Eden Gumbs signing for the Men's first team it shows that there is the opportunity to progress from the Juniors section to the Seniors."
New Runcorn Linnets Ladies Manager Dave Todd is keen to get going and said, "I am from Runcorn and have been involved with the Linnets for four years, so it means a great deal to me to have been asked to continue the journey for the Runcorn Linnets Ladies."
Toddy will be putting together his management team in the coming days and we will make a further announcement when those appointments are confirmed.
