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

On 9th January at the Manchester Civil Justice Centre, the judge allowed an eight day extension for those homeless people currently occupying the old doctor's surgery in Eccles. The case has now been set for the end of January, giving them an extra two weeks to prepare a legal defence.

Meanwhile this week, the Salford Unemployed and Community Resource Centre, which is helping the Shelter, took delivery of loads of pairs of thick winter socks and around one hundred toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes donated towards its new Medical and Dental Surgery for the homeless and ex-offenders.

'IT'S THROWING RESIDENTS TO THE WOLVES OF RAMPANT DEVELOPMENT'

Representatives of campaigns including from Campbell Road, Duncan Matheson, Walkden and Buile Hill Park then went into the meeting to hear City Mayor, Paul Dennett, say that the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework was "protecting green belt and green spaces", after Carol Boyce of Saving Our Neighbourhood had accused the Council of "throwing residents to the wolves of rampant development".

‘CONCERN’ OVER SALFORD CITY COUNCIL NURSERIES

Star date: 14th January 2019

'CONCERN' AS SALFORD COUNCIL NURSERIES PUT OUT TO TENDER

In a letter to Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, the Save Our Salford Nurseries Campaign has expressed concern that the uncertainty and "slow progress" over the future of the five outstanding Council nurseries "has had a significant impact on the staff and service".

The nurseries were put out to tender last month, and the Campaign, while inviting the Mayor to a meeting at the end of this month, warns him that "A privatised option has been shown to lead to problems of cost, delivery and long term viability".
