MOANING MOSSLEY END SALFORD RUN

Salford City 0 Mossley 2

Salford City's unbeaten run came to an end this afternoon against top of the table Mossley. Two efforts on target, two goals and lots of moaning at officials was enough to secure the victory. But the Ammies gave the hill people one hell of a fright, particularly in the first half.

Unbeaten Mossley maintained their position at the top of the league with a hard fought victory over Salford City.

Salford completely dominated the opening period, with waves of attacks floundering in the last third of the pitch. The team just couldn't turn dominance in to clear cut chances, with the Mossley defence blocking shots and hoofing the ball into tree Z.

Then about half way through the half the Lillywhites took the lead. Ammies defender Andy Heald wasn't able to connect with a long ball, the Mossley winger striding round the back of him, and putting in a low cross from which the centre forward curled the ball into the right hand corner of the net. 0-1.

Undeserved, fortuitous and callous it might have been but, after Mossley had hit the post with an angled shot from two yards, Salford came straight back into the game, Osebi Abadaki forcing the keeper into a smart save, and Jameel Ible, on as sub, having a header saved from a corner. But the equaliser just wouldn't come for Salford. Half time 0-1

The second half was again dominated by the Ammies but creative flowing moves floundered on poor finishing. Instead, Mossley, moaning and contesting every decision and taking an age to take throw-ins and free kicks, doubled their lead with a header from a corner. 0-2 and the spark seemed to go out of Salford, even though the team battled hard to rescue something from the game. Mossley had just the two efforts on target and scored two goals.

The Ammies' record still reads only two league defeats all season. And next up this Tuesday night at Moor Lane is second in the league Clitheroe. A must win for Salford City if promotion is the goal.

SALFORD LADY MARGARET MCHALE TURNS ONE HUNDRED AT THE BROUGHTONS

Star date: 20th January 2019

FROM HANKY PARK TO LITTLETON ROAD VIA LANCASTER BOMBERS AND THE 'MONKEY RUN'

Salford's Margaret McHale turned one hundred this week as her six children and relatives gathered for a huge party at The Broughtons Care Home. Born in Hanky Park, Margaret moved around central Salford, to Ellor Street, Warburton Street and finally to Littleton Road, as part of the slum clearances.

A proper Salford lass, Margaret worked on Lancaster Bombers during the war and as a machinist in Strangeways, and, as the family partied with residents and staff, there were a zillion anecdotes that will echo with loads of local families.

The Trust is now putting together a business plan and pitch to present to the owner at the end of the month, with a meeting planned with Salford City Council next month to discuss the theatre's future.

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

Before a full meeting of Salford Council this morning, residents campaigning against development on green spaces in the city held a demonstration outside the Civic Centre.

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".
