|Home colours||Green and yellow shirts, green shorts, yellow socks|
|Directions||NOTE these have changed since my last visit to Linnets.|
A533 to Runcorn. After crossing M56 take second exit from large roundabout into Murdishaw Avenue. Pass Aldi and Queen of Hearts pub before turning right into Stockham lane. The ground and parking is at the bottom of the lane.
|Parking facilities||Large car park at ground|
|Railway station||By Train (Runcorn East): Leave train station via the ticket office and catch a bus at the top of the steps (Arriva service number 1 is the most frequent) to Halton High School. From this stop cut through the wood, and the ground is over the road, opposite the chapel.|
Please note it is Arriva Service 2 from Halton High School that will return you to Runcorn East Station up until 6pm.
By Train (Runcorn Mainline): Leave train station and catch a taxi from the rank to High Street Bus Terminus. From the bus terminus catch either of the following buses to Halton High School:
Arriva Service 110
Arriva Service 79c
Halton Transport Service 61
Halton Transport Service 14
From the stop cross the busway where safe to do so and cut through the wood, and the ground is over the road, opposite the chapel.
Please note: for return journey to Runcorn Mainline Station on weekday evenings, only the 79c is in service (except bank holidays).
