NEW Runcorn Halton signing Andy McCoy will have to wait to make an impression for the UniBond Premier Division side after Saturday's game against Farsley Celtic was postponed after frost and heavy snow forced the game to be abandoned.
The 20-year-old has signed from Colwyn Bay, after previously playing for Chester City, and Linnets manager Steve Carragher believes the versatile youngster will be a good acquisition.
Runcorn have now failed to register in their last five-and-a-half games - the half coming last Tuesday when the UniBond League Premier Division match at Farsley Celtic lasted only 45 minutes before being abandoned.
But the arrival of McCoy, who made his first appearance in the ill-fated game, and that of ex-Clitheroe striker Paul Rogers should freshen things up.
Player-manager Carragher said: "Andy is quick and has good feet.
"He needs a couple of games to get his match fitness up but he did well and gives us another option.
"He can play on the right, left or up front."
Rogers has made a good impression in two short outings so far but Carragher admits the lack of goals remains a big worry. "We went back to 4-4-2 on Tuesday and there were a couple of chances we should have taken.
"But playing-wise, it was just nice to see them after last Saturday (the 4-0 home defeat by Matlock Town) put a performance on and give the fans something to cheer about."
