SALFORD CITY FC STORM INTO CUP FINAL AS DROYLSDEN STUFFED
 

Star date: 12th February 2013

MIGHTY DROYLSDEN PUT TO THE SWORD BY SUPER SALFORD 

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. Can Salford now be kings of Manchester?

`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.

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!

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

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

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.
