Runcorn Town manager Chris Herbert has added to his attacking options with the dual registration of Craig Lindfield from Nantwich Town.
Lindfield started his career at Liverpool, winning two consecutive FA Youth Cups in 2006 and 2007, scoring 12 goals in 12 games in the competition. He then went on loan at a number of Football League clubs to get experience, before joining then League Two side Macclesfield Town full time. He went on to make over 100 Football League appearances for Macc and Accrington Stanley before moving into non-league.
He played in Chester FC’s first season in the Conference in 2013, but is better known for making just under 100 appearances for FC United of Manchester across two spells, with stays at Ashton United, Marine and Trafford in between. He left FC United at the end of last season, where he signed for Nantwich.
Speaking of the signing, manager Chris Herbert said: “Craig comes to the club with lots of pedigree and is raring to go. He will undoubtedly add quality and also knows the game and how it should be played. His reputation with other managers and players is outstanding because of the way he conducts himself and every person I spoke to about Craig give a glowing report on him and what he will bring to us.
“I have watched him many times in his time at Accrington Stanley and FC United of Manchester where he was a big player. Obviously playing for Liverpool up front and training with the First Team there shows the quality he possesses to have even had that kind of opportunity. He adds more quality to an already strong team and it adds competition for places that we have been lacking.”
