09 Sep 2022 : All games postponed this weekend as football pays respects to HM The Queen

The Football Association has announced that all football scheduled for this weekend has been postponed as the national game pays its respects to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, who died yesterday aged 96.

The statement from Wembley is as follows:


Her Majesty the Queen was a long-standing Patron of The Football Association and has left a lasting and indelible legacy on our national game.

As a mark of respect, following the passing of Her Majesty the Queen, English football has united to postpone all football fixtures between 9-11 September. This follows Government guidance, which encourages sporting organisations to show respect in an appropriate way.

The FA can confirm that all football fixtures across the Barclays Women's Super League, Barclays Women's Championship, the Vitality Women's FA Cup, and the Isuzu FA Trophy, will be postponed this weekend. We can also confirm that all football fixtures across the National League System [NLS], Steps 1-6, including the Vanarama National Leagues, the Women's Football Pyramid [WFP], Tiers 3-7, and matches across grassroots football in England will be postponed.

The Premier League and the EFL have all confirmed that their fixtures this weekend will be rescheduled for a later date.

All flags at Wembley Stadium and St. George's Park will continue to fly at half-mast over the weekend.

Our thoughts remain with our president, HRH The Duke of Cambridge, and the whole of the Royal Family during this time.

The Pitching In Northern Premier League has also issued a statement. It reads as follows:

The Pitching In Northern Premier League sends the sincere condolences of the League and all member clubs on the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and expresses thanks for a life of service to this country.

We have been awaiting confirmation from The Football Association, and can now announce that all National League System, FA Trophy, and grassroots fixtures scheduled for this weekend will not take place as a mark of respect. The Queen was the FA's patron, and Prince William is its President. The FA Competitions Department will communicate with clubs who would have taken part in FA Trophy fixtures.

Currently, League fixtures will resume from Monday 12th September onwards although we understand that no sporting event of any kind will take place on the day of the Queen's funeral.

The decision to cancel this weekend's fixtures was taken in accordance with protocol, namely by The FA as the governing body. It is one which the League fully supports.

Should further statements from DCMS or The FA be made, we will relay these to you, together with any implications any announcements may have for our competition.

06 Sep 2022 : D&D Recruit stand together with Runcorn Linnets in three-year sponsorship

Runcorn Linnets are delighted to have teamed up with Runcorn-based recruitment company D&D Recruit.

D&D have kindly agreed to sponsor the full width of the new covered standing area at the Forest End of our ground for a minimum of three years.

Two further 10ft boards will be erected in the coming weeks to complete what will be called The D&D Recruit Stand.

The Manor Park company's sponsorship is in memory of Dave Grundy, a long-time Runcorn supporter, who passed away before he could see the Linnets return to Runcorn.

The club thanks D&D Recruit for their very welcome support

01 Sep 2022 : Linnets drawn at home to Chester in Senior Cup

Another reunion with our former boss Calum McIntyre - and the other ex-Linnets among his staff and squad - has been set up by the Cheshire Senior Cup draw pairing us at home to Chester in the first round.

The game, on Tuesday, November 1st (ko 7.45pm), follows our pre-season meeting at APEC Taxis Stadium, after Calum's summer appointment as first- team manager at Chester and Dave Wild's arrival as his successor at Linnets.

This will not only be the first Cheshire Cup meeting but the first competitive fixture between the clubs.

Both previous encounters have been warm-up matches with Chester first visiting us ahead of the 2018-19 campaign.

26 Aug 2022 : Charity begins near home as Linnets support Halton Haven

Runcorn Linnets came to the aid of neighbouring Halton Haven - the club's principal charity for the season - when the hospice issued an appeal for extra items for its bottle tombola.

A collection at Tuesday's home game against Hanley Town bolstered prizes for the Haven's latest fundraiser.

Club officials, management, players and supporters chipped in with items, the brief being to donate any (unopened) bottles for the draw.

The tombola is part of The Tea at Three event at Halton Haven this Sunday (August 28th).

Linnets mascot Ron Corn will be putting in an appearance, handing out sweets and treats.

Despite the request for bottles being answered at short notice, a good variety of prizes was forthcoming.

Hanley Town donated 100 to the cause - a tremendous and most welcome gesture from the midweek visitors from Stoke-on-Trent.

Linnets have supported Halton Haven in the past but this was the first link-up since the hospice in Barnfield Avenue, Murdishaw - almost on the doorstep of APEC Taxis Stadium - became the club's main charity for 2022-23, after a twitter poll.

Josh Christian, Linnets in the Community manager and Trust Board Member at the club, said: "It is great to be able to support such an excellent cause, which is not only very local to the club but also delivers such essential care and support throughout the Halton community.

"We will be raising awareness of, and supporting, the hospice throughout the season.

"As part of this, Halton Haven have also become our pre match warm-up top partner for the campaign.

"I thank on behalf of the club all those who kindly donated and particularly our friends from Hanley for their generosity.

"While supporting the Haven, we will also as a community club continue to work hard to help other groups and charities.

"Plans are already under way to support the Royal British Legion with their Annual Poppy Appeal and Remembrance Sunday festivities.

"Community-focused events are meanwhile being planed to celebrate Hallowe'en and Christmas."
