SALFORD CITY LOOKING GOOD FOR NEW SEASON

Prestwich Heys 1 Salford City 2

Salford City kicked off a series of pre-season friendlies with a comfortable win over near neighbours Prestwich Heys yesterday.

With loads of new faces and trialists adding to the existing talented squad the Ammies are already looking good for the new season.

Salford City player manager, Rhodri Giggs, put his tabloid hell behind him yesterday to lead the Ammies to a comfortable victory in the first of a whole series of pre-season friendlies which should see the team hitting the ground running in the annual promotion bid from the Evo-Stik First Division North.

A total of 19 players were used in the match – including welcome returns to the club for the impressive Cayne Hanley, Matthew Kosylo and Alex Mortimer. New signings Gavin Salmon and James Agoo slotted in well, while giant centre half Liam Coyne looked good and even opened the scoring in the first half, slamming in at the back post from a corner.

After Prestwich Heys had equalised early in the second half, Bulgarian trialist Dimitar Belchev re-established Salford's lead after great work by Glyn Barker on the byline. Amidst all the substitutions, Rhodri Giggs himself even managed to get on the pitch for the final 15 minutes, looking combative and skilful as ever. With other established players coming back into the team and more signings promised, this could seriously be Salford City's big season.

Final score: Prestwich Heys 1 Salford City 2

SALFORD COUNCILLORS COULD BE CUT IN BOUNDARY COMMISSION REVIEW

Star date: 20th April 2018

NUMBER OF COUNCILLORS COULD BE CULLED IN REVIEW OF WARDS

The number of Salford councillors could be cut in a sweeping review of the city by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England..."The review will re-draw ward boundaries across the city as well as deciding how many councillors should be elected to the council in total" said a spokesperson for the Commission.

Salford currently has three councillors per ward but, with new wards possibly emerging as the city grows, this might be cut to two per ward.

AS £5.5MILLION AVOIDED BY DEVELOPERS SALFORD MAYOR SAYS IT'S A 'MYTH'!

In the latest issue of Salford Council's propaganda mag, Life in Salford, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, has denounced the "myth" that "developers don't contribute money to the city. It's simply not true" he says.

Yes, they do contribute some money but they also avoid millions of pounds in payments and provision of affordable housing. Indeed, Salford Star analysis shows that developers avoided almost £5.5million in payments last year, as the Mayor only tells half the truth.

ASSISTANT DIRECTORS TO GET HUGE PAY RISES

Cash-strapped Salford City Council is to give huge pay rises to senior officers after a 'job evaluation exercise' moved them well up the pay scale. It follows the resignation of the Director of Finance and Corporate Business, and spreading the majority of his salary amongst other re-titled roles.

The Salford Star believes the officers are in line to share around £54,000 between them.
