NORTH FERRIBY UNITED V SALFORD CITY
 

Star date: 6th November 2011

FA Trophy
North Ferriby United 3 Salford City 0

RED NOSE DAY AS SALFORD KISS GOODBYE TO WEMBLEY

Billy Smart's Circus must be well short staffed this winter, as the clowns all seem to have swapped outfits with real referees.

While North Ferriby United in the end were worthy winners of this non-league FA Cup contest, a crucial ref/clown decision swung the tie…

Well, we found out where North Ferriby was – a posh village near the Humber that is apparently in the tenth richest constituency in England. And set behind a cabbage patch allotment is the very green Ferriby ground, populated by terribly posh, polite people…

…Even the North Ferriby team was terribly well behaved, apart from one animalistic moment in the second half when, with the scores level, Salford City forward Adam Morning was hauled down on the edge of the area when clean through on goal. A free kick and a red card surely? No, Billy Smart's mate in black waved play on…

As usually happens in slapstick cases like this, instead of being reduced to ten men, Ferriby went down the other end five minutes later and scored the opening goal. And then, while Salford City players were still recovering from the aggrievement, the Ferriby ringer Alex Davidsonobviously brought in to stop them getting stuffed every week - banged in another two to record his hat-trick.

To be fair to Ferriby, they were the better team overall and Salford City keeper, Chris Howarth, had to make some great saves to keep the score at 0-0 until midway through the second half. The Ammies had chances too, Adam Morning drawing a good save from the Ferriby keeper in the first half, and Danny Heffernan and sub Gavin Salmon hitting shots just past the post after the break.

So Salford City's dream of Wembley will have to wait for another year. But if the clown hadn't appeared to start the nightmare, who knows what could have been?

Salford City are back on the cup trail this Tuesday in the 3rd round of the Doodson Cup when high flying Chorley visit Moor Lane – and it's the return of Salford City legend Steve Foster, now hitting goals for the Magpies. He's sure to get a proper Salford City welcome…

SALFORD COUNCIL REFUSES TO REVEAL WHO PAID FOR CITY MAYOR TRIP TO SOUTH OF FRANCE

Star date: 19th June 2018

COUNCIL BLOCKS FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST ON £4,000 MIPIM TRIP

Salford City Council has refused to answer a Salford Star Freedom of Information request on which private company paid the £4,022 costs for City Mayor Paul Dennett and two staff to go to the South of France for the MIPIM property event.

The Council states that "the commercial interests of the Council outweigh that of the public interest in disclosure". The Salford Star is to appeal the decision.

DEVASTATING SURVEY OF NORTH WEST COUNCIL WORKERS SHOWS LOCAL SERVICES COLLAPSING

Star date: 18th June 2018

OVER 80% OF COUNCIL WORKERS HAVE NO CONFIDENCE IN SERVICES AND ALMOST 50% THINKING OF LEAVING THEIR JOBS

A survey of almost 1,500 local council workers in the North West reveals that 81% have no confidence in the future of local services, 49% are thinking of leaving their jobs, 54% believe their council no longer delivers quality services, and 45% think that their employer doesn't make the right decisions for the public.

The other results of the survey by UNISON to coincide with its local government conference make equally depressing reading, as the union states that "Vital local services in the North West are collapsing".

SALFORD TIME OUT FOR CARERS

Star date: 18th June 2018

TRIPS, CAKES, MASSAGE, ADVICE AND CHAT AS CARERS TAKE TIME OUT

"I was absolutely weary...I needed to get out of the house" Ernie

Caring for a loved one is indeed a labour of love but it can also be life consuming and draining. So a group called Time Out For Carers is making a difference, running weekly sessions where escapism is the order of the day.

There's free massages, trips out, advice on allowances, tea and coffee and cakes, but, most importantly, relaxed informal chats with carers who are all in the same position.
