16 Sep 2019 : Jimmy Moore is heading back to Runcorn Linnets
Runcorn Linnets' Player of the Year in their championship-winning campaign has agreed to return to the club as manager Michael Ellison looks to improve his team's defensive fortunes.
Jimmy Moore had an unforgettable season at Runcorn Linnets in 2017-18 - finishing it not only with a Hallmark Security League Premier Division title winners' medal but also the two principal first-team playing awards for the campaign.
He lifted the Jimmy Lightfoot Trophy as the Supporters Club Player of the Year as well as the Players' PoY prize after performing outstandingly at the heart of the Linnets' defence.
Jimmy left the Linnets in early September 2018 for a second spell with Trafford, after making 47 appearances in the Yellow & Green.
The centre back's former clubs also include Cheadle Town, Atherton Collieries and Abbey Hey.
Linnets are yet to keep a clean sheet in eight league and cup games this season, suffering a series of defensive mistakes while conceding three and four goals in draws on the road at Dunston and last Saturday at Clitheroe.
Manager Michael Ellison said: "I don't have to remind anyone what Jimmy Moore will bring to the side. When the opportunity arose to bring him back, it was a no brainer for me.
"He will be rusty and it will take him a bit of tine to get up to speed after his injuries but he will be a huge asset to the squad and I'm delighted to have him back."

11 Sep 2019 : Runcorn Linnets bring in Jordan Wynne from Trafford
Runcorn Linnets have signed attacking midfielder Jordan Wynne from Trafford.
The 21-year-old Liverpudlian only moved to Shawe View in the summer after two and a half seasons with Prescot Cables.
He is known for his all-action style and an eye for goal.
Jordan had spells in the Academy set-ups at Everton and Liverpool before finding his way to Wigan Athletic, where he stayed until the age of 15.
He later moved to AFC Fylde, impressing in the Youth ranks.
May 2016 saw Jordan score twice as Man of the Match to help the young Coasters to a 3-1 victory in the North West Youth Alliance Cup final at the expense of league leaders Chester Youth.
Jordan moved from AFC Fylde to Cables in November 2016 and during his time at Volair Park, his popularity on and off the field was plain to see.
Another important part of his player development followed in May 2017.
It was then that Jordan captained Knowsley Youth U19s in the Dr Pepper Dallas Cup in Texas, USA. He scored in the final, a 2-1 defeat by Liverpool Foundation College.
Jordan made 30 (+ six sub) appearances for Prescot last season, scoring half a dozen goals.
His goal to game ratio was good throughout his time with Cables. His netted 22 times in 92 (+18) Prescot career outings.
Jordan moves to The Millbank after making three appearances for Trafford.
Linnets boss Michael Ellison said:
"Jordan is a box to box midfielder with a eye for goal.
"He has a lot of games under his belt at this level for a player of such a young age.
"He will certainly give us legs and energy in the middle of the park and will be a great addition to the squad."

In the 77th minute the Linnets substituted Kurt Sherlock for Paul Shanley. In the 85th minute Droylsden substituted Rhys Clooney for Aaron Burns.

07 Sep 2019 : Bayleigh takes the Player of the Month plaudits at Runcorn Linnets
The new season has brought a number of new players to Runcorn Linnets, and none of them have impressed more than the club's first Bowland Brewery Player of the Month in 2019-20, teenage goalkeeper Bayleigh Passant, writes STE BIGNALL.
Appearing towards the latter stages of pre-season, the Tranmere Rovers loanee is slight in frame but huge in ability.
He was voted Man of the Match in his first competitive game for the club, earning us an opening day point against Pontefract Collieries in a game that we could well have lost had it not been for a superb goalkeeping display.
And a week later, Bayleigh repeated the feat and was voted MOTM again in the FA Cup defeat at Atherton Collieries, a standout performance keeping the Linnets in the cup-tie right through to the dying seconds.
Bayleigh performed well once again in our first win of the season against City of Liverpool on Bank Holiday Monday, and stood up to be counted at the death to preserve a hard-earned point in the North East against Dunston.
Bayleigh made a tremendous save in injury time with his team having overturned a three-goal deficit.
I genuinely can't remember a goalkeeper making such an immediate impact at the club, let alone a goalkeeper just 18 years of age.
Bayleigh is highly thought of at his parent club, Tranmere and Michael Ellison has pulled a real rabbit out of the hat in bringing him to The Millbank and helping Bayleigh gain experience of competitive football at a good level.
It's been great start for the youngster, and long may it continue!
