News for you, we've got them already.
Haven't you been to any games lately?

And we've got a plank in charge as well.

Yes it does look impressive but lets be honest was we really apart of it.I dont think not. Ask a question how many hard cure Runcorn fans are left following this club and why.Ask Greenwood and Pritchard the question was we really apart of anything but just used Trust members or supporters no we were just used on the believe that everbody had a roll to play but it was only to support a lust for power for these 2 people. Well ive leant `t a lesson we are soon forgotten unless you have money.Yes the club will replace the likes of me and the rest who had worked hard because ive seen it with my own eyes in with the new fools on believing this is a trust members club when infact it never was.you can honestly say if you not been you been push out you will. If you think im full of **** look at the facts it tells its own story.

Have they screwed up on the dimensions?
Not much room between the pitch and the advertising board area, then not much room for spectators to stand on?
Dont you need access wide enough for an ambulance and a fire engine at least?

This really is a budget ground, on par with the sloped pitch at Pavillions.

Think is announces that Runcorn Linnets wont progress out of the North West Counties League.

And lets face it, you can really get a grasp of the size of the ground from a few mobile phone camera pictures.

If you actually go up there you will see there is plenty of room all the way around the ground, its going to be a 1600 capacity.

I am assuming emergency vehicles will enter the pitch behind the goal that is nearest the clubhoue as there are two large gates up there that lead onto the road.

The ground will be fit for use in the Unibond league, hence the 2 turnstyles and perimiter fencing, two items that arent needed to play in the NWCL.

What were you all expecting?

I think people are expecting a Canal Street type ground or even a Witton Albion type ground.
What people have to realise, is that Linnets is not Runcorn FC, its no longer a great non-league side playing in the Conference.
What we have now, is a club that serves a purpose of providing football in Runcorn. For that, it only requires a small enclosed ground with minimal facilities.
What we will have at Halton Sports, is a Sunday league level pitch with a fence around it, a small covered cow shed section of terrace and small cow shed that houses 120 seats (More than enough for the current home gates).
There wont be concreted stepped terraces, there wont be catering stalls or even Jeans Kitchen, there wont be a VP lounge linked to the stand, there wont be rows of crush barriers or segregation fences and there wont be Linnets style social club with function room and seperate bar area.

What we will have is a basic ground that meets the requirements and allows us to play football in Runcorn The Conference Days are long gone, days of 800+ crowds and FA Cup runs against league Clubs have long gone. The 120-200 who will attend games will have a facility that we can call home.

Onwards and upwards.

Days of 800+ crowds were extremely rare even in the good days, and thats the main reason why the club is where it is now.
