This Saturday Salford City FC take on FC United of Manchester (FCUM) in the biggest game in the Ammies history.

Salford stuffed FCUM in the FA Vase a few years ago, and FCUM have beaten Salford City when they were in the same league. But now FCUM are a full league above the Ammies, and going well (apart from getting shafted at home by Nantwich last Saturday) and the teams meet for the first time ever in the FA Cup in a David v Goliath tie.

It's Salford v Manchester in a huge derby. It's big money FCUM, average gates over 1000, versus skint Salford City, average gates over 100. With Moor Lane having a capacity of 1400, one thousand tickets have gone to FCUM. Salford City have 400 for home fans. 

For Salford City fans only (keep your beaks out FC fans), the tickets will be on sale at Moor Lane, Kersal tomorrow night (Tuesday 18th September) between 7pm and 9pm, with any remainders being sold during the day on Friday. Tickets have been kept to the normal admission price of £7/£3concessions. The Salford Star urges everyone to get down there, get a ticket and support your city's top footy team – and stop us getting swamped by Mancs!

Salford City captain, Jimmy Holden, knows all about FC United, having played for them during the teams best ever FA Cup run, when they beat Rochdale and drew with Brighton away. He reckons Salford City can turn FCUM over on Saturday…

"Why not?" he says "The club I play for want to win. I owe FC United no favours and they owe me no favours. I've got respect for them but, on the pitch, no respect for no-one.

"The way we are playing, of course we can win it" he adds "We're on our home turf, they're only a league above us…it's not as if we're playing Barcelona or anyone. If we do what we do in passing the ball, no club can live with us really."

Salford City has had a great start to the season under new manager Darren Sheridan who's had loads of FA Cup experience, beating Manchester United as a player with Barnsley and taking former club Barrow to massive FA Cup ties against Premier League opposition. Shez and Jimmy will be instilling the magic of the FA Cup into the Ammies' players

"Shez gets it over to the players, because as a manager at Barrow he's had big ties against Sunderland and Middlesborough, and you can't play those games every week, or even once a season" says Jimmy "If you play them once in your career you're over the moon."

As an ex FCUM player, Jimmy's already had texts off his former team mates, and, when Salford City win he'll giving them stick back… "Of course I will" he laughs…

The full Jimmy Holden interview will appear in the Salford City v FC United of Manchester match day magazine

SALFORD COUNCIL REFUSES TO REVEAL WHO PAID FOR CITY MAYOR TRIP TO SOUTH OF FRANCE

Star date: 19th June 2018

COUNCIL BLOCKS FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST ON £4,000 MIPIM TRIP

Salford City Council has refused to answer a Salford Star Freedom of Information request on which private company paid the £4,022 costs for City Mayor Paul Dennett and two staff to go to the South of France for the MIPIM property event.

The Council states that "the commercial interests of the Council outweigh that of the public interest in disclosure". The Salford Star is to appeal the decision.

DEVASTATING SURVEY OF NORTH WEST COUNCIL WORKERS SHOWS LOCAL SERVICES COLLAPSING

Star date: 18th June 2018

OVER 80% OF COUNCIL WORKERS HAVE NO CONFIDENCE IN SERVICES AND ALMOST 50% THINKING OF LEAVING THEIR JOBS

A survey of almost 1,500 local council workers in the North West reveals that 81% have no confidence in the future of local services, 49% are thinking of leaving their jobs, 54% believe their council no longer delivers quality services, and 45% think that their employer doesn't make the right decisions for the public.

The other results of the survey by UNISON to coincide with its local government conference make equally depressing reading, as the union states that "Vital local services in the North West are collapsing".

SALFORD TIME OUT FOR CARERS

Star date: 18th June 2018

TRIPS, CAKES, MASSAGE, ADVICE AND CHAT AS CARERS TAKE TIME OUT

"I was absolutely weary...I needed to get out of the house" Ernie

Caring for a loved one is indeed a labour of love but it can also be life consuming and draining. So a group called Time Out For Carers is making a difference, running weekly sessions where escapism is the order of the day.

There's free massages, trips out, advice on allowances, tea and coffee and cakes, but, most importantly, relaxed informal chats with carers who are all in the same position.
