Historical Archive - 1990s

The Linnets reached two more FA Trophy finals at Wembley, going down to Wycombe Wanderers (4-1) in 1993 and Woking (2-1) in 1994. Despite their success on the field, disaster struck three times off the field during the 1993/94 season. A perimeter wall collapsed in a FA Cup tie against Hull, the roof blew off a stand in high winds, and the main stand was gutted by fire. With the club crippled by the cost of rebuilding their Canal Street home, Runcorn suffered on the pitch, and were relegated for the first time in their history in 1995/96 after fifteen years of top-flight non-league football. Back in the Northern Premier League the club won the Presidents Cup in 1997/98.

One of the goals that started the chase for Ian Woan. This FA Trophy game took place in February of 1990 and by the middle of March, Brian Clough had signed Woan for Notts Forest for a reported 80,000. He stayed at Forest for the whole of the decade and made over 200 appearances, playing in an FA Cup Final and in Europe.
