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

SALFORD QUAYS DEVELOPER TO AVOID £1MILLION PAYMENT WHILE NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROVIDED

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
