FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY SALFORD GOES FLOODLIT
 

Star date: 14th October 2011

SALFORD UNDER THE FLOODLIGHTS

As a one off experiment, tonight Salford City FC will play its first Friday night league fixture under the floodlights at Moor Lane, against unbeaten, top of the league Curzon Ashton. The only point the Ashton team has dropped all season was at home, against Salford City. Let battle commence!

Full details here…


Last season, Salford City chairman, Darren Quick, told Salford Star that if the club got another fifty people through the turnstiles regularly, the team would get promotion. Instead, attendances at Moor Lane have actually dropped and the financial state of the club has led to a few players leaving to join other clubs.

In an effort to increase crowds, Salford City are to play a one off Friday night fixture tonight, 14th October, at Moor Lane against Curzon Ashton, currently top of the Evo-Stik First Division. The bar will be open, and a top Friday night out is guaranteed.

On its website Salford City released this statement… "The club have been looking at ways of increasing attendances at Moor Lane, and generating more interest within the city, and this is one option. If it's successful we may ask for future games to be rescheduled as well."

Salford is a huge city with over 200,000 people. We urge everyone to support the club so that Salford has the team such a big city deserves.

Rhodri Giggs' team is currently on a roll, having beaten Clitheroe in Tuesday night's replay to launch a run in the FA Trophy (see here). If Salford City stuff Curzon Ashton tonight, the play offs are once again on the cards…

Salford City v Curzon Ashton
Moor Lane, Kersal
Kick off: 7:45pm.
Admission:  Adults £7 Concessions: £3

DONALD TRUMP... 'THE WORLD'S MOST DANGEROUS LEADER SINCE THE 1930s' 

Thousands of people packed Albert Square in Manchester last night to voice anger over US President Donald Trump's visit to the UK. Groups from every section of society that Trump has dissed were represented on stage – from Mexican dancers to an ex-US soldier, to trade unions, peace, climate change, refugee, LGBT and women's rights campaigners, plus spokespeople for youth and children. 

To kick off the evening, Manchester councillor, Pat Karney, called Trump "The most dangerous leader since the 1930s...we have to stop the ideas of Trump going across the world..."

'MANIAC' TRUMP NOT WELCOME HERE

A red open top double decker bus toured Salford this morning covered in slogans reading 'Trump Go Home'. It stopped off at Salford Precinct, Salford Royal Hospital, Langworthy Road and the Civic Centre before heading off to Manchester.

The bus was sponsored by Swinton-based Mary Monson Solicitors, and Mary Monson told the Salford Star that "the idea that he'll come and be feted like a respectable person is appalling". Meanwhile Paul Kelly, President of Salford TUC, called Donald Trump an "ultra-capitalist maniac".

Many of the actions used by protesters at the Barton Moss anti-fracking demonstrations in Salford were outlawed by a judge at Manchester Civil Justice Centre yesterday, including slow walking, lock-ons and any obstruction of the highway.
