HALIFAX FC SQUEEZE PAST SALFORD CITY FC
 

Star date: 31st July 2012

SALFORD'S TEAM OF TWO HALVES

Salford City 1 Halifax 4

Pre-season friendlies throw up strange results and this one chucked up one that didn't reflect the state of play, as Salford City – playing with a tangerine team in the first half and a green team in the second half – almost matched the Conference North big shots from Halifax. Apart from the four goals to one scoreline…

Salford City FC. A new manager and two new teams took to the Moor Lane pitch tonight, taking on the might of Conference North big time Charlies, Halifax.

The first half saw the tangerine dream team, spurred on by the ageless class of new ex Barnsley (circa Premier League) player manager Darren Sheridan, give Halifax a bit of a fright, controlling possession and looking authoritative in the middle of the pitch.

Halifax, backed by a sizeable following for a friendly, were restrained to two shots, both resulting in goals. The first, a blast from the edge of the area, the second a chip from within the six yard box. Salford, fielding so many new players that even the team sheet was wrong, hit back just before the end of the half with a strong header at the far post from number 6, who we think was Adrian Bellamy. Half time: Salford 1 Halifax 2.

The second half saw Salford's green team appear, featuring a couple of familiar faces in Craig Flowers and the wing storming Osebi Abadaki. Looking strong and determined the green team continued to dominate possession without producing a single shot on target.

Halifax made it 3-1 from an offside position, then flattered themselves with only their fourth shot on target to make the final score 4-1.

As one Salford wag noted, apart from the five goals it was a 0-0 draw. And as the Halifax fans (many of whom left well before the end; Halifax does shut at 10pm), will have noted, there was never two divisions difference in class. With a settled team, the new season bodes well for Salford City…


There's three more friendlies coming up at Moor Lane before the season kicks off, including two bumper games…

Saturday 4th August 1pm: Macclesfield Town X1
