TEAM boss Steve Carragher will have the funds to make Runcorn Linnets competitive in their debut campaign.
Carragher had a torrid time when, as manager of Runcorn FC Halton, he saw money run out with several weeks of the 2005-06 season left - leading to a mass exodus of players.
However, leading players who stayed on have now transferred allegiances to the new club.
Full-back Mark Phillips has been named assistant player-boss while last season's goalkeeper and play-er-of-the-year Robbie Holcroft will have extra responsibility as play-er-coach.
Strikers Thomas Lamb and Andy McCoy plus centre back Lee Siadankay are also committed to Run-corn Linnets' cause.
Stuart White, interim chairman of the Moore & Co Construction Solicitors North West Counties League club, says Carragher is 'more than happy' to take on the new challenge.
He added: 'We've given him a good budget to work on.
'By UniBond standards it's a low budget, but it is a very good budget as far as the North West Counties League is concerned.
'Now we have overcome the hurdle of getting into the league, finance is going to be the biggest problem.
'When we launched, we had a fantastic response for funds over a very short time.
'Some finance is in place but we need a lot more. Whatever supporters can do and whatever opportunities they find to generate cash for us, we're asking them to take it.'
The interim chairman stressed: 'We are trying to run the club, as best we can, on a good business footing.
'We have a cashflow budget and that way, if there are any problems, they will reveal themselves earlier.'
With 60 players having asked for a chance, the club has declared tonight's trial fully-booked.
White added: 'We are talking to Halton Borough Council who've promised to help us.
'They are also talking to us about a ground for the season after next.
'They have a place in mind but the main problem is, at the moment, they don't have a budget.
'But that doesn't mean they won't have a budget in months to come.'
Linnets' first league game is on Saturday, August 12, with fixtures due out on Friday next week.
No 'friendly' dates have been confirmed but games with Witton, Salford City and Cammell Laird are among those in the offing.
Meanwhile, Runcorn FC Halton - particularly secretary Alan Jones - were praised at the UniBond League AGM for seeing last season out.
Runcorn Football Supporters' Club's AGM is on Tuesday, July 18 (7.30pm) - committee nominations to Susan Bell, 18 Croasdale Drive, Beechwood, Runcorn WA7 2RJ by July 4.
