Linnets Make Several New Signings
Gavin Salmon

Top of the list is former England semi-professional international Mike Tomlinson.

Tomlinson played for the Linnets as a youngster before joining Vauxhall Motors and later Burscough, where he won international honours as well as a Northern Premier League, League Cup and Lancashire Cup winners’ medals.

He then went on to play for Warrington Town where he was captain before playing for Salford City and Stockport Sports.

Forward Mark Bailey arrives from league rivals Ashton Athletic where he has scored nine goals so far this season. He started the season in the NPL First Division North at Prescot Cables.

Levi Kennedy, a utility player, who is comfortable in the back four or in midfield, is a big physical presence who played previously at Woodley Sports and Warrington Town.

He has recently returned home after spells in Dubai and America.

Gavin Salmon, a vastly experienced and well-travelled striker is well known to non-League fans. He played for Droylsden and Leigh RM in the Conference, and Woodley Sports and Salford and most recently for Northwich Victoria in the NPL.

Salmon is a renowned goalscorer in non-League football and has always been a crowd favourite wherever he has played.

A fourth signing is Matty Cross - a central midfielder - who is equally comfortable playing anywhere in the back four.

His professional career started with Barnsley before making thirty-one appearances for Hereford United.

He has also played in Wales for Bangor City and Rhyl and has also worn the colours of Mossley, Trafford, Bamber Bridge, Salford, Warrington and recently Witton Albion and Clitheroe, with whom he is dual registered.

Leaving the Linnets are player coach Neil Black, Tommy Turner, Chris Lawton and Richie Mottram.

Black has decided the time is now right for him to concentrate on the coaching side of the game, while Turner feels that the time is right for him to leave feeling that his lack of real motivation has become a factor for him.

Lawton has really enjoyed his time at the club but feels his place is no longer guaranteed and that at 28 years of age he needs to be playing on a regular basis. We thank him and wish him well, while Mottram had dual registration this season with Clitheroe and played for them earlier in the season.

He has now decided to commit to the Lancashire side as their number two keeper.
