FA Vase 2QR: Runcorn Linnets FC 4-0 Bacup Borough; Att: 120 (est based on h/c); Admission: 5.50; Programme: 1.20

I have now seen four teams stage home games at Wincham Park- Witton Albion, Northwich Vics, Congleton Town and Runcorn Linnets. This Vase tie was a bit of a damp squib as Bacup faded alarmingly after a bright start when they hit the post. Once Linnets took the lead they were in control of a largely disappointing cup tie played on a beautiful sunny afternoon. After beating Cammell Laird in the FA Cup I was expecting more of a Bacup side that has been drastically re-shaped and based on FC United's reserve team of last season- but Linnets look a decent side who play good football and have an outstanding young goalkeeper.

Many posters have commented on Wincham Park before- we know it's a bland, featureless ground on an industrial estate but there were compensations- the carparking and access were easy and the catering first class while the programme was a typically good effort, too. The Runcorn fans who have stuck together to keep the club going are a friendly bunch and I hope that one day they attain their goal of moving back to the town. In the meantime Wincham Park easily meets their requirements and with the whole ground open it made for a relaxing afternoon in the sunshine on a quite superb playing surface.
