A RESCUE package at General Chemicals means the club will continue in the coming season - returning to its former ground in Picow Farm Road.
At the end last season, the club was heading for extinction, having contemplated resignation from the higher standard division of the West Cheshire League.
Now with a new committee, new ground, new manager and coaching staff, the Runcorn club is set for the challenges lying ahead.
With Gary Horrocks as chairman and club secretary Wendy Whiteley tending to administration and finances, the club is backed by a strong committee.
With support from Anthony's Travel and the Jones Dutton Part-nership, the club is starting the season on solid foundations.
Chemics have reverted to Picow Farm Road, from Pavilions, after carrying out significant ground improvements.
A WCL ground inspection has been passed but steps will be taken to improve the ground, allowing the club to eventually compete at a higher level.
Gary Siner returns to hometown Runcorn as Chemics manager after a successful year at Vauxhall Motors.
He has been busy putting a squad together and also brings with him his coaching staff of Steve O'Hara, Kenny Day, and physio Jenny Green.
He said: 'I am delighted to return to managing a Runcorn side again. I had a lot of Runcorn-based play-ers at Vauxhalls and these players will now play in their home town as I believe they should.
'The previous Chemics manager has told me last year's squad has moved on but I will be contacting them and inviting them down for pre-season and we shall take it from there.
'Support from Tony Bamber at Anthony's Travel and The Lion pub has been fantastic.'
Chemics can boast an impressive list of pre-season friendlies, which include games against Accrington Stanley, Altrincham, Witton Albion (first team), TNS and Warrington Town.
This Sunday sees Chemics' first outing of the season when they take on Union Tavern in the annual Jody Burns Memorial Trophy match at Picow Farm Road (ko 2pm).
