SALFORD CITY ROAST RADCLIFFE BOROUGH IN BANK HOLIDAY DERBY
 

Star date: 26th August 2013

SUPER SALFORD CITY SIZZLE IN THE RADCLIFFE SUN

Radcliffe Borough 0 Salford City 2

Super soaraway Salford City made it four matches unbeaten and only one goal conceded as Radcliffe Borough were put to the soccer sword by Danny Browne and top scorer Wes Bancroft in the big local derby.

The Ammies are now up to sixth place in the Evo-Stik First Division and looking good for the big FA Cup tie at Cammell Laird on Saturday.

The Salford City flags hadn't even been hung behind the goal when a thunderous shot from Stuart Cook crashed against the bar. It set the scene for some stunning football by the Ammies as they totally dominated the opening half against a sorry Radcliffe Borough team containing a million ex- Moor Lane favourites, including former co-manager Chris Thompson.

Ed Ruiz, making his long awaited, suspension-delayed debut for Salford, constantly bamboozled the Radcliffe defence on the left, and had an early shot that fizzed just over the bar. Meanwhile, there was some great interplay between midfielders Stuart Cook and Lee Hodgkinson, and forwards Danny Browne and Wes Bancroft, resulting in Salford looking more menacing with every attack.

The breakthrough came after 21 minutes when Wes Bancroft craftily jinked his way past a couple of defenders in the box and poked the ball past the hapless Radcliffe keeper into the left hand corner of the net. A top solo effort. 1-0.

Salford continued to press, and on the half hour Danny Browne, latched onto a ball outside the box and, as quick as a flash, lobbed the Radcliffe keeper who had come to collect thin air, as it turned out. A stunning goal. 2-0.

As Wes Bancroft stung the keeper's hands with a rasping shot, half time couldn't come quick enough for a Radcliffe team that looked doomed in the big local derby.

The second half saw Borough start with three substitutes and the manager's hairdryer still curling their psyches. It seemed to work as they pushed Salford back with some direct attacking of their own, and even had the ball in the back of the net but it was correctly ruled out for a flattening of the Ammies' keeper Kieran O'Boyle.

At the other end, Ed Ruiz had a stinging shot that curled just wide of the post but Radclifffe got stronger as the half progressed, forcing Kieran O'Boyle to make two good saves at the foot of his posts.

In the end Salford City battled it out, with centre backs Aaron Walters and Otis Gorman outstanding, to grab all three points and continue an undefeated run which has seen only one goal conceded in four games. Co-managers Barry Massay and Phil Power are certainly weaving some magic at Moor Lane.

The Ammies are now up to sixth place in the league and go into Saturday's FA Cup tie away at Cammell Laird full of confidence.

OVER £100,000 SALFORD PARENT SCHOOL FINES NOT GOING BACK INTO SCHOOLS

Star date: 15th November 2018

CASH-STRAPPED SALFORD SCHOOLS NOT BENEFITING FROM PARENTAL FINES

A Freedom of Information response from Salford City Council has revealed that during the year 2017-18, £118,920 income was received from parental fines but didn't go directly to help cash-strapped schools in the city. Instead the money went to 'support council services generally'.

"I think the money should go back into education as the lack of funding is clearly apparent" says parent Mandi Lee, who put in the FOI request.

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL TO FINALLY TIGHTEN UP ON PUPPY SELLERS

Star date: 14th November 2018

NEW REGULATIONS MEAN TIGHTER CONTROL OF ANIMAL BUSINESSES

New laws on the sales and keeping of animals mean that Salford City Council will be forced to tighten up on regulating puppy sellers and animal keepers through new national regulations.

One of the biggest changes is that a puppy at a breeder's "may only be shown to a prospective purchaser if it is together with its biological mother", and that inspections of premises are to be carried out by a qualified inspector, rather than the Council's Environment Health Team.

PENDLETON TENANTS ARE FOUR YEARS FROM SAFETY

The nine blocks of dangerous flats in Pendleton, owned by Salford City Council and managed by Pendleton Together, won't be safe as buildings until 2022, according to the latest accounts posted by Pendleton Together Operating Ltd.

External cladding work, the accounts state, will be completed by 2021 but other internal fire safety measures won't be complete until 2022. Meanwhile, the company recorded a loss of £23.5million last year, and adds that the "cost of further works are estimated to be £35.5million".

PEEL HOLDINGS REFUSED PERMISSION TO BUILD HOUSING ON SALFORD GREENWAY BY SECRETARY OF STATE

Star date: 12th November 2018

SECRETARY OF STATE DISMISSES PEEL HOLDINGS APPEAL TO BUILD 600 HOUSES ON WORSLEY GREENWAY

This morning, the Secretary of State at the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has dismissed Peel Holdings' appeal against Salford City Council's refusal to allow the company to build up to 600 houses in the Broad Oak area of the Worsley Greenway.

The Secretary of State agreed with the Inspector that "the proposals would impact negatively on the character and appearance of the Greenway". Noel Gaskell, from RAID, the community group that opposed the development, told the Salford Star "It shows want can be achieved when the general public put their minds to stopping developments that would cause huge problems to the residents."

SALFORD UNIVERSAL CREDIT CLAIMANT TOLD TO LIVE ON £47 A WEEK

Star date: 12th November 2018

'HOW AM I GOING TO MANAGE? I HAVEN'T GOT A CLUE...'

A Salford Universal credit claimant has been told that she must live on just £47 per week, or £190 per month, after 'migrating' from Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)... "How am I going to manage? I haven't got a clue" she tells the Salford Star.

This latest disgusting poverty setback comes on top of the shock of her father dying from a heart attack while waiting for a DWP appeal, after being told he was fit for work. His case, in retrospect, is being heard by an upper tribunal this week.
