12 Aug 2022 : Extra bar is licensed to take the strain off clubhouse

Runcorn Linnets will be operating a second service point for the sale of alcoholic ďrinks at home matches this season in a bid to reduce queueing and waiting times at the Clubhouse Bar.

The club intends to use a caravan for this purpose as we investigate and plan for a longer-term solution.

However, there is still work to be done to make the van ready for use.

So, for the meantime, a temporary bar will run from inside the club shop (behind the goal at the Clubhouse End).

This will sell a range of cans, including Madri, Peroni, Guinness and Koppaberg, poured at source into disposable "glasses".

Club chairman Peter Cartledge said: "We have acted on feedback from our fans, who have asked for arrangements to be put in place to ease pressure on the main bar inside the clubhouse.

"At the same time, we have have to be mindful of longer-term plans to improve our overall facilities and the financial requirements of such projects.

"The Board felt that use of the caravan will offer a workable and cost-effective solution to our immediate needs and importantly, won't interfere or conflict with any future plans to create an additional permanent bar at the stadium.

"There is quite a lot of work involved to convert the caravan into a temporary bar and we haven't quite been able to get the project over the line for the opening match.

"But once complete, the Caravan Bar will help with the problems encountered by our customers and staff due to the high matchday demands on the ever-popular Clubhouse Bar at its busiest times.

"Our fans will surely be pleased to know that we will be serving Madri on draught from the caravan so it will be worth the short wait!"
