SUPER SALFORD END 2011 ON A HIGH

Salford City ended 2011 with a fine win over Radcliffe Borough that takes Rhodri Giggs' team to just five points from a play-off place. Three magnificent goals from Scott Metcalfe, Danny Heffernan and Cayne Hanley bagged the points.

Salford City ended 2011 in style today with three beautifully executed goals that sunk Radcliffe Borough in the big Evo-Stik First Division derby.

The Ammies went a goal up after only two minutes when Scott Metcalfe controlled the ball on the edge of the area, slipped it past a defender and hammered a shot into the bottom right hand corner of the net.

Steve Murty almost doubled the score ten minutes later with another piece of class, carrying the ball from his own half and hitting a shot that curled and swirled over the Borough keeper, only to crash off the top of the crossbar.

Next it was Danny Heffernan's turn to switch on the style, passing to Gavin Salmon in the area before collecting his neat backheel and driving the ball into the same bottom right hand corner of the net that Scott Metcalfe had rattled earlier.

Radcliffe's only real reply was a shot that brought out the best in keeper Chris Howarth. Salford City went in at half time with a comfortable 2-0 lead.

The second half saw the Ammies start shakily, as Chris Howarth again had to be at his best with a flying save to knock a goalbound shot over the bar, while a few minutes later Radcliffe hit the post when it seemed easier to score. Salford soon regained composure, with Ben Beresford replacing Raphael Evans, and Cayne Hanley coming on for Gavin Salmon.

Indeed, Cayne Hanley could have scored with almost his first touch, going through on goal but, under pressure from a Radcliffe defender's elbow, hitting his shot narrowly wide. After 68 minutes, though, Cayne scored a wonder goal, whipping in a shot from well outside the area that curled and swirved and completely out-foxed the Borough keeper, who could only watch the ball whizz into the net. 3-0.

This was a top class performance from Salford City which moves Rhodri Giggs' Tangerine Army to within five points of a play-off place. With the new stand at Moor Lane looking likely to get the go-ahead (see www.salfordcityfc.co.uk), 2012 could yet be the greatest ever year in Salford City's history.

Meanwhile, it's Prescott Cables at home on January 2nd, 3pm kick off

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.

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.
