Manchester Premier Cup Semi Final
Salford City 1 Droylsden 0

Salford City tonight humbled the mighty Droylsden to reach the final of the Manchester Premier Cup for the first time in over ten years. A goal by Danny White was enough to stuff the East Manc team, who play two leagues above the Ammies. Salford now meet Mossley in the final, to be played at Stockport County's Edgeley Park.

`We'll be running round Stockport with the cup… We'll be running round Stockport with the cup…'

Salford City tonight reached the final of the Manchester Premier Cup beating Droylsden, who have won the trophy four times out of the last six years.

The mighty East Manc team, who play in the Blue Square North, two leagues above the Ammies, were outplayed in the first half, as Nathan McDonald went close, and numerous corners and free kicks flung in by Kris King caused havoc in the Bloods defence.

In return Droylsden relied on long diagonal balls that usually flew out of play. Despite being on top the Ammies couldn't get the all important goal and at half time it was still 0-0.

All that was to change shortly after the interval as Danny White ghosted in with a header from another King free kick to make it 1-0.

With wingers Nathan Taylor and Ossie Abadaki tormenting the Droylsden defence it seemed only a matter of time until the second goal came. But once Taylor had gone off injured Droylsden launched waves of attacks that forced the Ammies to play deep and on the counter.

However, Salford keeper, Ritchie Branagan, continued his sparkling form, catching a bombardment of crosses and the Salford defence kept Droylsden forwards at bay. It was Salford who could have wrapped up the game when Abadaki, playing as a lone forward had one on one chances that he couldn't quite convert.

The last 15 minutes were a bit hairy for Salford City but in the end a deserved place in the Manchester Premier Cup Final awaits, against Mossley at Stockport County's Edgeley Park.

`Edge-e-eley… Edge-e-eley…We're the famous Salford City and we're going to Edge-e-eley… Edge-e-ele-e-y!!!'

See m.irlam's comment below... You're quite right but worry not, we're sure our reporter will be back in ref bothering form this Saturday - away to moaning, hoofing, referee-snogging hillbillies Clitheroe. Be sure to tune in!
