06 Nov 2018 : Connor McCarthy is our Bowland Brewery Player of the Month for October

Rarely does a new signing at a football club make an impact as immediate and telling as Connor McCarthy has done at Runcorn Linnets.

When boss Michael Ellison secured Connor's signature, his comment was "This is a huge signing for us", and he couldn't have been more accurate.

He is our choice as Bowland Brewery Player of the Month for October.

In a month, which saw striking options often heavily restricted due to injuries, Connor at times seemed to be leading a one-man charge.

His pace and strength provided crucial goals, assists for others while his hold-up play allowed the team to settle and reshape.

In the narrow away win at Kendal, Connor turned in a match-winning performance, despite a below par showing from the Linnets on the day.

Latching onto a defensive lapse at the start of the second half, Connor opened the scoring before a driving run into the penalty area resulted in him being brought down for a spot kick, which Danny O'Brien converted to secure the win.

Connor made it back to back man-of-the-match performances with a telling contribution in the stunning 1-6 victory at Colne. Scoring the fourth goal and creating the sixth were just a snapshot of his overall display on the day.

He then earned high praise for his tireless efforts in the 2-1 defeat at Prescot Cables. Following strike partner Freddie Potter's early dismissal and Mike Simpson also seeing red before half-time, it was left to Connor to single handedly try to hold up the play as best as he could in a one-man Linnets attack.

He chased and harried the Cables defence whenever the ball was cleared by the Runcorn defence.

The final fixture of the month was a Cheshire Senior Cup home tie against Vauxhall Motors and again Connor was a key figure in the second 6-1 victory of October.

He had already created a goal for Bobby Evans in the first half by the time he rounded off a magnificent month's football with an audacious goal of his own.

Picked out by Niall Watson's low cross to the near post, Connor turned on the spot and back-heeled the ball into the net with his first touch - leaving the Motors goalkeeper and watching crowd mesmerised.

Congratulations Connor on a well-deserved award!

During a special evening to mark the name change from Spirit Health Club and its improved facilities, the Linnets first team made full use in the health club's gym, enjoyed a swim and met health club members.

Linnets also donated a signed matchball and matchday admission tickets as prizes for a charity raffle organised as part of the festivites.

Health centre manager Steve McDonald said: "Tracy Measor, who works with us at the Holiday Inn (as housekeeping manager) helped to arrange for the Runcorn Linnets players to come to our rebrand evening.

"Also at Runcorn Linnets is Ellen Johnston, who as well as being the football club's massage therapist, works here in the health club, providing sports massage. So we have the community link.
