22 Mar 2022 : Non League Day
Runcorn Linnets are to celebrate Non-League Day this Saturday by offering cut-price admission to season ticket holders of other football and sports clubs.
They will be afforded entry for the game against Market Drayton Town at the concessionary rate of £5, on production of their season pass at the turnstile.
This is the chance for supporters of Premier League and EFL clubs to embrace and support the wider game and an opportunity for followers of other sports, such as rugby league and rugby union, to likewise sample the delights of football outside the top four divisions.
At Runcorn, you can enjoy a pre-match pie and a pint in the bar ahead of a traditional 3pm Saturday kick-off, watch the game in a friendly atmosphere - no segregation means you can move around the ground, changing ends at half-time, and take a seat in the stands at no extra charge - and on the final whistle retire to the clubhouse to mix with the manager and players.
This is another key Step 4 National Leagues System fixture as Linnets' bid to reach the Pitching In Northern Premier League West Division Play-offs for the first time.
Runcorn Linnets play at APEC Taxis Stadium, Stockham Lane, Murdishaw, Runcorn, WA7 6GJ.
Runcorn East Railway Station is nearby with connections on the adjacent Runcorn Busway (departing from the station side) to Ormiston Bollingbroke Academy, leaving a five-minute walk to the ground.
There is also a bus service from the mainline Runcorn Railway Station and a very efficient taxi service from all parts of town, courtesy of our stadium sponsors APEC Taxis!
Always scheduled to coincide with an international break, Non-League Day provides a platform for clubs to promote the importance of affordable volunteer-led community football while giving fans across the country the chance to show support for their local non-league side.
Many non-league clubs, Linnets included, are almost exclusively volunteer run, with money taken at the turnstiles often supporting thriving youth set-ups, projects and facilities which are of benefit to the whole community.
The level of skill on offer at non-league grounds might not be the same as that at Anfield, Goodison, Old Trafford or The Etihad, for example - although you might be pleasantly surprised at the standard.
As for the other sides of the experience, the smaller club will always win hands down!
Whether you're a Premier League or Championship fan without a game, a League One or League Two supporter who can't make an away trip, or just someone who is curious about what their local club has to offer, there is sure to be something to interest everyone.
Why not give it a try!
