07 Jun 2022 : Let's Go Wild to Support the Budget

Members and fans of Runcorn Linnets FC have an opportunity to further invest in the club's future success through a new crowdfunding scheme.

Support the Budget - Let's Go Wild is designed so that supporters can further demonstrate their backing for the club with a one-off pledge ahead of the 2022-23 season.

As a fans-owned club, Linnets will inevitably find it tougher to compete against rivals who are financed by a wealthy benefactor.

The fortunate flip side to this, however, is that the destiny of OUR club has always been - and remains - in the hands of OUR supporters.

This makes all our accomplishments extra special.

Linnets showed in 2021-22 just what can be achieved by reaching the Play-off Finals in the Pitching In Northern Premier League West Division against all odds.

It was a season nobody involved with Runcorn Linnets will ever forget and all connected to the club played an invaluable part.

The forthcoming campaign promises to be even more challenging with ambitious Macclesfield joining the mix in an already competitive division as champions of the North West Counties League Premier Division.

Our club has given new manager Dave Wild the best playing budget that we can afford to boost his - and our - ambitions of going one step further, after coming so close to promotion last time around.

But to make it all work, the club will need even more support and backing after the incredible support it received last season.

Manager Dave Wild said: "I have been overwhelmed by the welcome I have received from the club and supporters.

"The togetherness in the club struck me immediately as something special and if we can all continue to pull in the same direction, I am sure the club can continue to progress.

"This is an important initiative to move the club forward and I promise to do everything I can to help Runcorn Linnets to achieve our goals.

"Any help members and supporters can offer will be truly appreciated."

As its name suggests, the new fundraising initiative is designed to support OUR existing playing budget, not to top it up, and to generally strengthen OUR finances ahead of the new season.

This is a chance, for those, who are able and so wish, to show the new management team and playing squad - many of whom have returned from last season - we are backing them 100%.

Without our fantastic supporters, who last season sent club crowd records tumbling - APEC Taxis Stadium seeing a first-time 1,600 sellout for the home Play-off Final - we could not have achieved what we did.

A JustGiving page has been set up for fans to donate to "Support The Budget - Let's Go Wild'.

We realise that these are difficult times financially but we would really value and appreciate your contributions.

Donations can be made by following the online link

Alternatively, you can contribute by cash, cheque or bank transfer.

The donation window will stay open until the end of July.

Anyone donating 100 or over will receive an exclusive Let's Go Wild T shirt.

For further details of how to donate in person please email commercial@runcornlinnetsfc.co.uk

If anyone wishes to spread their donation over a longer period, via a standing order, this can be arranged through the same email address.

All contributions will be acknowledged in the club's matchday programme, although donations can be made anonymously if preferred.

Thank you for your support.
