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

Oi. We are better than you, and the fact that the best player we would give you is Gavin Salmon shows that.

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

ARTISTS TAKE UP RESIDENCE IN CONTROVERSIAL URBAN SPLASH SALFORD DEVELOPMENT

Star date: 15th October 2018

ARTISTS TO CHALLENGE HOUSING POLICIES WHILE LIVING IN LUXURY HOUSE

'You can't even stop your car to take in the breathtaking sterilization of the place...'

Last week, artists moved into a stunning Urban Splash house in the new Springfield Lane development as part of a year-long project called Tenancy in which they will explore 'what it's like to live in a city negotiating rapid change' and 'who is benefitting'.

The Springfield Lane development, being branded as in 'Manchester', has no affordable housing and avoided hundreds of thousands of pounds in planning fees. Can the artist project, actually sponsored by Tom Bloxham and Urban Splash, make a difference?
