THE GREAT ESCAPE – THE DENOUEMENT
 

Last home game of the season this Saturday 18th April against Harrogate RA but…

CAN THE SALFORD CITY LION ROAR THREE MORE TIMES?

There's a few more squeaks left in the bums of Salford City FC as the season draws to its nerve shredding, scarf sucking, programme twisting, eye wrenching, psyche screaming, angst splintering conclusion…


Three games left for Salford City FC to complete the greatest escape of all footy time. Anchored to the bottom of the Unibond North Division One without a chance just a few months ago, the gap between us and Rossendale United is just four points with three games to go…

After a creditable 2-2 draw away to Chorley and a 3-1 home win against Warrington Town over Easter, Salford go into the final three games still climbing a mountain but…fording every stream…following every rainbow until we find our dream…A dream that will need every love you can give…every day of your life…For as long as you l-i-i-i-i-ve…Ahem…

Er…Salford have the final home game of the season this Saturday against Harrogate RA…and it's our game in hand over Rossendale United.  If we win, it cuts the gap to a mere one point with both teams having two games to play. Unfortunately both Rossendale's final two games are at home against Newcastle Blue Star and Mossley – while ours are both away at top of the sodding table Skelmersdale United and at Garforth on the final day. 

It's going to be tough…it's going to be hard…it's going to be climbing mountains…but the Kersal hills are still alive with the sound of The Great Escape theme tune…

Salford City FC v Harrogate RA
Saturday 18th April 3pm
Moor Lane, Kersal
£6/£3

Remaining fixtures:
21st April: Skelmersdale United v Salford City
                   Rossendale United v Newcastle Blue Star

25th April: Garforth Town v Salford City

So…

Climb every mountain
Search high and low
Follow every by-way
Every path you know

Climb every mountain
Ford every stream
Follow every rainbow
'Till you find your dream

A dream that will need
All the love you can give
Every day of your life
For as long as you live….

SALFORD QUAYS DEVELOPER TO AVOID £1MILLION PAYMENT WHILE NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROVIDED

Star date: 17th July 2018

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.

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.
