Star date: 21st April 2013

NEVER MIND THE SCORE SALFORD HAS FUN IN THE SUN

Salford City 1 Radcliffe Borough 1

With nowt to play for other than pride, Salford and Radcliffe drew the local derby before a crowd of almost 200. As the sun shone for the first time in millenniums, even the ref laughed at his own belly, while keeper Ritchie Branagan, saved a penalty before picking up the supporters Player of the Year Award.

The sun shone, the beach beckoned and a home draw against local rivals Radcliffe Borough didn't matter as neither team can do much in the league for the rest of soon-to-end-thank-god-season.

Even the ref had a laugh at his own belly, acknowledging chants from the stand, as he awarded Borough a harsh penalty after only twelve minutes. A slight challenge from Adrian Bellamy looked marginally outside the area, and marginally a free kick, as the Borough forward went sprawling on the deck. The ref pointed to the spot, and Ritchie Branagan, later to be crowned supporters Player of the Year, saved with his feet to keep the scores level.

Salford hit back, with Nathan McDonald rifling a shot that the keeper managed to block, and Jamie Rother – later to be crowned Players' Player of the Year – whacking the ball just over the bar.

The pressure on Borough finally paid off, as ex Ammies player manager, Darren Sherridan, now playing for Radcliffe, tripped Osebi Abadaki in the area just before the break, and Jamie Rother converted from the spot. 1-0.

The second half fizzled out a bit with nothing of note, except former manager Sherridan running round like a bull in a Barnsley corner shop, trying to butt Salford players at every opportunity, without even seeing red.

Twelve minutes from time, however, the ref missed a hand ball in the build up to Radcliffe's equaliser, a forward whipping in a shot from the edge of the area to make it 1-1.

Brad Robinson had a shot saved by the Radcliffe keeper from point blank range as the Ammies went for the winner. But the best moment came in injury time, when Salford introduced French player Yanis Khodja for his debut and a chorus of `Allez Le Salford' went up, followed by the French national anthem.

Parents of the two junior football teams – Ordsall Juniors under 9s and Salford FC – providing ball boy duties looked confused. But Ammies fans had been waiting for this moment for weeks. If Yanis ever gets a starting place expect tricolours at Moor Lane…

Following the game, Ritchie Branagan picked up supporters Player of the Year, while Jamie Rother won Players' Player of the Year – both well deserved.

Supporters also heard the news that dynamic Chairman, Darren Quick, who managed the team for a while, oversaw the Great Escape a few years ago and helped build the best Salford City teams ever, had resigned due to other personal commitments.

ARTISTS TAKE UP RESIDENCE IN CONTROVERSIAL URBAN SPLASH SALFORD DEVELOPMENT

ARTISTS TO CHALLENGE HOUSING POLICIES WHILE LIVING IN LUXURY HOUSE

'You can't even stop your car to take in the breathtaking sterilization of the place...'

Last week, artists moved into a stunning Urban Splash house in the new Springfield Lane development as part of a year-long project called Tenancy in which they will explore 'what it's like to live in a city negotiating rapid change' and 'who is benefitting'.

The Springfield Lane development, being branded as in 'Manchester', has no affordable housing and avoided hundreds of thousands of pounds in planning fees. Can the artist project, actually sponsored by Tom Bloxham and Urban Splash, make a difference?
