SALFORD CITY ON THE BEACH
 

Star date: 9th April 2012

Salford City 0 Radcliffe Borough 2

SALFORD SEASON OVER

With four games left, Salford City played out another end of season derby that ended with defeat against local rivals Radcliffe Borough. The small town club, one place below Salford in the league, celebrated like they had just won the World Cup. Meanwhile, in the sheeting rain, Salford players appeared to be already dreaming of a summer at Ordsall beach.

Salford City suffered yet another home defeat as a season which promised the play-offs ends with a whimper. This time it was Radcliffe Borough's turn to beat the Ammies, having been comprehensively thrashed 0-3 on their own ground at Christmas.

As the rain lashed down at Moor Lane, Radcliffe took the lead after the ball appeared to get stuck in a puddle somewhere in midfield. It certainly fooled the Salford defence, left the Radcliffe attacker on his own to advance and, seeing Salford keeper Danny Jackson off his line, hit a hopeful punt which sailed into the net. 0-1.

And that was it for a first half which was a catalogue of sopping errors in the typical Easter rain. After the break, Salford came out more determined and virtually camped in the Radcliffe half. Ex Radcliffe centre forward, Steve Burke, should have equalised for Salford but his header from a yard out cannoned off the crossbar, with the Radcliffe keeper making a good stop from the follow up shot.

Lee Woodyatt also forced the Radcliffe keeper to touch his shot from distance onto the crossbar but apart from these two efforts Salford were strangely lethargic. Radcliffe rubbed salt into the Ammies' wounded psyches with a second goal to wrap up the points. 0-2.

On paper at Christmas these end-of-season fixtures against Trafford, Radcliffe and, next Saturday, Ossett Albion, looked like winnable games that would propel Salford City into the play-offs. Now that's all looking a bit stale as the Ammies end the season in mid table obscurity with three games still to come. Ordsall beach can't beckon soon enough…

Final home game of the season – Ossett Albion next Saturday 14th April, Moor Lane 3pm – with player awards after the game.

NEW PLAY AIMING FOR SALFORD URGES WORKING CLASS PEOPLE TO ‘SPEAK UP AND BE HEARD’

Star date: 15th April 2018

WHO WILL FUND WORKING CLASS THEATRE?

A new play aiming to be staged in Salford, at the Kings Arms in June, is set to open up issues affecting the working class, "to encourage those that may have once felt lost, silenced or isolated, to speak up and be heard knowing that someone is listening".

The play, Oct.O.Pus, has a diverse cast that includes Coronation Street's Melissa Johns, but is crowdfunding for £1,000 to pay for props, costumes, set etc, as no-one funds proper working class theatre these days.
