06 Jan 2019 : Kyle Hamid is our Bowland Brewery Player of the Month for December

Runcorn Linnets' player of the month for December, sponsored by Bowland Brewery, is our Captain Fantastic, Kyle Hamid.

Kyle, or Mucker as he is almost universally known, earned his place in Linnets folklore when he was one of the few players who stood by the club in the chaotic summer of 2017 that led to Michael Ellison taking up the reins as our manager.

Kyle's dedication was rewarded in glorious fashion when he, as captain, led his team mates to the Hallmark Security League Premier Division title last season, after so many near misses.

Those near misses have driven Mucker to become the player and leader that he is today.

As this season has developed and player movements have prompted change, Kyle has been subject to a repositioning by Ello into a more dictating, holding midfield role.

This has shown a different side to Mucker's game - operating deeper and, therefore, transforming him from the goalscoring midfielder that we have always known.

Kyle has adapted to his new role seamlessly and is playing an influential part week in, week out.

He turned in a sparkling performance on an unfamiliar surface as Runcorn won through against higher-ranked opponents Hyde United in the Integro League cup, Mucker's style of play suiting the quick and slick passing style that artificial pitches seem to bring out of teams.

In the home fixture against Glossop North End, Mucker's Man of the Match performance played a critical role in the Linnets snatching a point in the final seconds after being 0-2 down with only seven minutes remaining. It was his sliderule pass that set up Ryan Gibson's late equaliser.

In the bludgeoning affair at Chasetown, Kyle showed an equally impressive side to his current game. In years gone by, we have been far too guilty of getting ourselves involved unnecessarily when other teams lose their heads, often earning ourselves red cards following incidents that weren't of our making.

That indiscipline has gone for the side now, and it's driven by the captain.

In December, we were involved in games where the opponents had two and even three men sent off, while we kept our cool and went on to win both of those games with eleven men on the pitch.

The month was seen out with Kyle guiding his team through the Christmas period with two crucial victories, one of these being against local rivals Widnes - a team we had failed to earn a single point against previously.

And just like at the start of 2018, Mucker led his team into the New Year sitting top of the league table!

05 Jan 2019 : Linnets continue to take plaudits in debut EVO-STIK League campaign

Our good start to the season was further rewarded earlier this week with a second Club of the Month award in the EVO-STIK League Division One West.

Here's what the league has now had to say about our latest accolade which will see us presented before an upcoming game with an engraved permanent memento and a 1ltr bottle of spirit.

"It's turning into quite a season in the EVO-STIK Northern Premier League for Runcorn Linnets.

"Newly-promoted to the West Division, Linnets currently sit top of the table and have been crowned Club of the Month for December - the second time they've won the award this season.

"They won four league games in December, as well as coming from two goals down to draw against Glossop North End, as well as progressing in the Integro League Cup - beating Premier Division opposition on penalties for the second successive round."
