SALFORD CITY WARRINGTON TOWN
 

Star date: 13th August 2011

Salford City 1 Warrington Town 5

SECOND HALF HORROR IN SALFORD AS VOODOO HOODOO STRIKES!

How did this happen? Salford, 1-0 up at half time, fell to the opening day fixture curse that has engulfed the club for the last zillion years.

Was voodoo afoot?

Yeugggghhhh! What was worse – the scoreline or the sight of Warrington supporters taking off their shirts and wazzing them round like half a dozen would be blubbering Geordies?

You'd think they'd won the cup. But little did they know that Salford could have been playing a team of dustbins today and lost. Yes, it's the annual curse of the Moor Lane opening fixture. Salford City never win the first game of the season. And, er, today was no exception.

In front at half time, thanks to a Jack Redshaw strike following a corner, the second half was just complete voodoo hoodoo…

After only five minutes Warrington drew level. And shortly after, a horror back pass left keeper Andy Robertson diving at the feet of a Wires attacker to get the ball. But the referee, blinded by the ghosts of opening fixtures past, and horses galloping across Kersal Moor and Chartists marching for democracy, pointed to the spot. 2-1 Warrington.

That setback, and the voodoo hoodoo, seemed to drain the spirit from the Salford City players…3-1, 4-1, 5-1…and those horror images of Warrington Town supporters. Yeugggghhhh!

An afternoon to forget – like every other Salford City first game of the season in the last zillion years…

Your goal followed a blatant jump at out goalie and we should have had another penalty for a foul on Gaghan - I have photographs of both if anyone wishes to see them. We beat you even though you had the ref on your side

Your team lost. No need to be bitter. Personal insults don't reflect well on you!

NEW PLAY AIMING FOR SALFORD URGES WORKING CLASS PEOPLE TO ‘SPEAK UP AND BE HEARD’

Star date: 15th April 2018

WHO WILL FUND WORKING CLASS THEATRE?

A new play aiming to be staged in Salford, at the Kings Arms in June, is set to open up issues affecting the working class, "to encourage those that may have once felt lost, silenced or isolated, to speak up and be heard knowing that someone is listening".

The play, Oct.O.Pus, has a diverse cast that includes Coronation Street's Melissa Johns, but is crowdfunding for £1,000 to pay for props, costumes, set etc, as no-one funds proper working class theatre these days.
