01 Jul 2021 : Chairman's Update - Week 23
St Helens Town v Runcorn Linnets
We had our first pre-season game of the 2021/22 season and it was a bit of a cracker. The Linnets
ran out 6-0 winners putting in a great team performance, with some brilliant individual displays.
Eden Gumbs got his first goal for the senior team to open the scoring and I have to say he looked
very assured as he backed himself to get in the position to get the goal after receiving the ball in an
Iwan Murray was excellent as always and grabbed himself a hat trick, with his second goal being a
mazey run from halfway, taking on half the St Helens team and placing the ball in the back of the
net. Rhain Hellawell and Ryan Brooke completed the scoring.
MJ Monaghan looked very impressive, and the St Helens defence had no idea how to deal with him
as he won both Linnets penalties. He has a talent for putting his body in a position where the
defending player can't challenge for the ball without giving away a foul, something I think we will
benefit from in the coming season.
Overall, I think Calum will see it as an excellent workout for his players and I'm sure he will have
learnt a lot from the game. Personally, I was very happy to be back watching the Linnets and really
enjoyed the game and the performance.
Runcorn Linnets Ladies
The Ladies return for pre-season training on 7th July for the start of new manager Dave Todd's first
campaign in charge.
We will be entering this season's FA Women's Cup and it would be brilliant if we could get a home
draw and progress deep into the competition. We will now be entering the FA Cup, the FA Women's
Cup, and the FA Youth Cup and that is great for the club.
200 Club Draw
The June 200 Club Draw will take place live on Linnets TV on Sunday 4th July at 2pm. Just to explain
why I do the draws when I do, it is to give people the whole of the month to join or to pay for their
number before we do the draw.
The June draw is double your money, so £400 is up for grabs, you can still join in time for the June
draw until 11.59pm on Wednesday 30th June. If you would like to join, please follow the link below.
Kops and Kids tournament
For the next two weekends we will be hosting the Kops and Kids tournament. We are working with
the local police to put on this tournament which all teams can enter for free and it should be a great
couple of weekends of football.
There will be games on before our game against Euxton on 10th July, the car park may be busy, so if
you can get to the game leaving the car at home, please do so.
Thank you for taking the time to read this update and hopefully I will see many of you on the 10th.
