Kris Holt

Position : Midfield

A key performer in the Linnets engine room, Kris is relishing a return to EVO-STIK League football after leaving it behind during the 2017-18 season to pledge his allegiance to Runcorn Linnets.

He'd spent the first half of the campaign playing at Step Four with Atherton Collieries as part of a dual registration but ultimately the lure of the Linnets proved too much and Kris returned to The Millbank to be part of our title dream.

It was from Colls that Kris had joined Linnets, his debut in September 2016 ironically coming as a sub against the Alder Street club he had left three weeks or so earlier.

A two-year stint at Atherton had seen Kris play a lead part in Colls' emergence as a Hallmark Security League force to be reckoned with.

He helped them to promotion to the Premier Division of the North West Counties at the end of 2014-15 and subsequently League Challenge Cup final success.

Kris had been one of Michael Clegg's first signings when the Colls manager took over in summer 2014 and went on to make 95 appearances, scoring 14 goals, in his first spell.

The move had involved Kris teaming up with Clegg for a third time, having also played for him at Pennington and then Atherton LR, for whom he netted 15 times in 2013-14.

After the first game of our 2017-18 campaign at Abbey Hey, Kris left Linnets to rejoin Colls in the EVO-STIK League Division One North, although we retained his Hallmark Security League registration.

With the Linnets in the grip of severe selectiion problems, he answered an SOS to play in our first round Buildbase FA Vase replay against Team Northumbria, scoring the opening goal in a 3-2 win at the Millbank Linnets Stadium.

In the next round, Kris played the final pass for Mark Houghton to score a dramatic last-gasp winner in a replay at Sunderland RCA and he subsequently rejoined the club on a permanent basis.

Runcorn Linnets would like to thank The Tea Bar who have kindly sponsored Kris Holt.
