Salford City 2 Ossett Town 2

OWN GOAL DIVOT DENIES SALFORD CITY VICTORY

An own goal by a Moor Lane divot and a dodgy penalty denied Salford City victory over Ossett Town yesterday, after goals by Rhodri Giggs and Jack Redshaw seemed to have sealed a win.

IT WAS THE DIVOT WHAT DONE IT…

Not many home divots can claim to get on the score sheet but Moor Lane's six yard box turf grabs the headlines after a spectacular own goal.

Salford City had already cruised to a one goal lead - courtesy of Rhodri Giggs' majestic near post header after five minutes – when an Ossett attacker had a speculative shot from way outside the penalty area. Salford keeper, Andy Robertson, had it covered but the ball bounced up off the demon divot and over his despairing dive to level the score. Disbelief all round. Unless it was an Ossett Town mole who headed the ball home.

The setback didn't last long, however, with Jack Redshaw stroking home the second from a low Rhodri Giggs cross following top work on the right wing. Half time: 2-1 Salford.

The second half saw Ossett's second shot on target of the game, a penalty given for no apparent reason. 2-2.

The best that Salford City could offer after that was a stunning run by Scott Metcalfe who put the ball through an Ossett defender's legs before unleashing a shot destined for the top corner, only to be denied by a good save from the keeper. And that was it really. Two Ossett shots on target and two goals, their man-of-the-match a dodgy divot.

The draw keeps Salford City in touch with the play off places but these are the games that the team should really be winning if promotion is to be a serious option. And there's tough away games at high flying Farsley and top of the table Skelmersdale next up in the league…

The good news is that the players, manager, chairman, president and supporters of Salford City FC signed the petition to Save Salford. To join the Facebook campaign which has over 6000 members click here. Or see www.savesalford.org.uk

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.

HUGE PAY RISES FOR SALFORD CITY COUNCIL OFFICERS

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.
