27 Jun 2017 : Regular fan Ellis is programmed for editor's role

Runcorn Linnets are very happy to report that regular supporter Ellis Clarke has taken over the editorship of the club's match day programme.

Ellis succeeds Mark Buckley in the role, giving our hard-working chairman one thing less to worry about!

The new incumbent will already be a familiar face through attendance at the Millbank Linnets Stadium and away from home.

But for those who don''t know him already, we invited Ellis to introduce himself.

Ellis said: 'I watched a handful of Runcorn games at Canal Street in the early 1980s as a stepping stone to my Mum letting me watch Everton with my mates… it seemed so cool and, to be fair, they were winning leagues back then.

'But now even when offered a free ticket for the Toffees, I'll decline and take my place at the Millbank or wherever we're playing at the time.'

He added: 'The most significant memory from Canal Street was my mate Robbie got Leo Skeete's sock ties at the end of one game… I was dead jealous of those two frayed strips of bandage!

'I've been coming to the Millbank since 22/10/11. A feisty FA Vase game against Barlick saw three red cards in the first half and Linnets losing by the odd goal in five.

'Given that I live (according to Google Maps) 94 metres from the Millbank, you might ask what took me so long to join the fun. I do too.

'Since then I've missed only a handful of home games and I go to most of the aways as well.'

Ellis has lived in Runcorn since 1974, excluding four years in the late '80s, and works in the health service.

'I'm a nurse by trade and my title is Matron. I have worked at Halton and then Warrington Hospitals for nearly 20 years, mainly in Intensive Care, although lately I've been working with the IT team,' added Ellis.

'The chairman has been doing a great job with the programme and I hope to carry that on. I am also planning to introduce some new features after looking at what works in other programmes and maybe reintroduce what has worked in the past in the Runcorn Review.

'I've already had a couple of good ideas offered to me and if anybody else has a thought for what they'd like to see then please let me know.

'I am @EllisClarke13 on Twitter or can send an email to programme.editor@runcornlinnetsfc.co.uk

Linnets chairman, Mark Buckley said: 'We are very grateful to Ellis for coming forward to become our new programme editor. It is a time-consuming but rewarding position and you are privileged to have a direct line to the supporters.

'Fans like Ellis, who are willing to out their hands up for vital volunteer roles, are just what we need to help us evolve and progress.

'I am sure the programme us in very safe hands and certain that Ellis will do a terrific job as he puts his own stamp on the role.'

Ellis' debut will come in pre-season with a combined edition covering all the home friendlies.
