SALFORD CITY START SEASON UNDEFEATED
 

Star date: 18th August 2012

TEN MAN SALFORD UNLUCKY DRAW TO START SEASON

Salford City FC 1 Curzon Ashton 1

Salford City, under new manager Darren Sheridan, began the season today with a home draw against last year's play-off losers Curzon Ashton. Despite being down to ten men, as the referee sent off captain Jimmy Holden, the Ammies held firm to start the Evo-Stik marathon undefeated.

Yet again, lucky, `cheating', Curzon Ashton escaped Moor Lane without defeat, despite intense Salford City pressure that should have seen the Ammies take all the points.

With winger Osebi Adabaki constantly mesmerizing the Curzon defence and player/manager Darren Sheridan showing his Premiership midfield class, the Tameside team were constantly on the back foot, their chances relying on quick breaks, each one of which was squandered in the six yard box.

Salford City took a deserved lead after 30 minutes, Steve Yarwood beating a couple of defenders before squeezing the ball past former Ammies' keeper, Josh Ollerenshaw. 1-0 Salford City.

Salford could have doubled the lead a few minutes later, as Adabaki tied the Ashton defence in knots before crossing for Yarwood to push his shot just past the post. Half time 1-0.

Salford City began the second half in similar style, Adrian Bellamy heading just over the bar from a free kick, and Chris Thompson skying a chance in the six yard box.

Against the run of play, Curzon equalised with a scrappy goal mid-way through the half to make it 1-1, and then relied on play acting to frustrate Salford's attempts to regain the lead, the left back, in particular, hitting the deck, feigning death at every opportunity.

With a good crowd urging them on, Salford came closest to scoring as the game opened up, one effort hacked off the line by a Curzon defender. And then the referee ruined the excitement by inexplicably sending off Ammies' captain Jimmy Holden for a second yellow card `offence' which no-one but him actually saw. Now down to ten men, Salford sat deep and held on for the draw, to give Darren Sheridan an unbeaten start to the season.

The new Salford City team is looking good for a play-off place at least, judging by this performance against an Ashton side already the bookies' favourites for promotion.

Next up at home is the FA Cup against either Runcorn Linnets or Hemsworth MW – 25th August 3pm, before another home game against big spending local rivals Radcliffe Borough on Bank Holiday Monday 27th August 3pm..

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL THREAT LETTER CAUSES ELDERLY CITIZENS ANGUISH

Star date: 22nd October 2018

CALLOUS COUNCIL TAX LETTER SCARES ELDERLY 

Hundreds, and possibly thousands, of letters have been sent by Salford City Council to elderly people threatening them with the loss of their single person Council Tax discount as it states 'Records show that multiple adults are living at your address', even though they are widows and widowers. The letter tells them to fill in an online form 'within the next 14 days' or the discount will be cancelled.

"It's not fair to be treating your senior citizens in this way, it's just callous" says Jill Royle, whose 92 year old non-computer literate mother became totally agitated on receiving the letter "Salford Council needs to know how much anguish it's caused."

"We stuck together and we won!" Vicky, cleaner at Royal Bolton Hospital

Bolton Royal Hospital workers are celebrating a massive victory after taking two days of strike action over pay parity earlier this month, supported by Salford UNISON and many other trade unionists.

The workers, who include cleaners, catering staff, porters and security staff, are employed by Bolton NHS Trust's subsidiary company iFM, doing the same jobs as other NHS workers but were offered pay at a lesser rate. Now they have won an increase in line with other NHS workers, backdated to last April.
