SALFORD CITY v TRAFFORD FC
 

Star date: 28th August 2011

Salford City 3 Trafford FC 1

SUPER SALFORD STUFF LOCAL RIVALS

Salford City came from behind to put three past sorry Trafford as the Ammies unbeaten run extends to three games – and the decibel levels at Moor Lane hit 102, that's the same as a chainsaw…

There's not that many fans standing on the top shelf of Moor Lane's grandstand but as Salford City came from behind to go a goal up, the decibel levels - measured by a fan on his I-phone app – hit 102. That's the same as a chainsaw and one below the official health and safety limit for possible hearing loss if sustained over a long period.

Fortunately for Trafford fans the noise levels emanating from the Tangerine Army only happened in short bursts. And in reality in was more a giant sigh of relief, Trafford playing the neater football and taking the lead from a bizarre mix up in the Salford defence which might have been a headed own goal from centre half Liam Coyne.

Indeed Trafford only had one trick in their bag which they kept exploiting – short Barca style corners eventually and dangerously whipped into the box for such things like mix-ups to happen. But Salford City have got Adam Morning and it was his superb trickery which brought the equaliser and the third goal later in the game.

For his first, which levelled the half time score, Morning cut inside and curled a sublime short in off the far post past the forlorn Trafford keeper.

Trafford again looked dangerous at the start of the second half, Salford keeper Andy Robertson having to tip a shot onto the post before the defence scrambled it away for a corner. It looked as if Trafford would get the second goal but Salford by now were playing on the break and Cayne Hanley latched onto a long pass, took the ball beyond the Trafford defence, saw his first shot blocked by the keeper but scooped in the rebound to make it 2-1.

To the relief of Salford City fans, Adam Morning hit the third, with some trademark neat footwork on the edge of the area and a curling shot rising high into the top corner of the net.

If this form continues the roof will surely come off the Moor Lane grandstand.

Next game Prescot Cables away on Bank Holiday Monday and on Friday Ramsbottom away for the start of Salford City's FA Cup glory trail…

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.
