SALFORD CITY GROUNDHOG DAY
 

Star date: 19th October 2013

GALLANT AMMIES UNDONE BY WIRES

Salford City 1 Warrington Town 2

It's getting to be Groundhog Day watching Salford City these days with yet another 2-1 scoreline, the fourth in a row, and the third that has gone against the tangerine army. Despite a gallant effort, the Ammies couldn't overcome their visitors who are sitting third in the league.

You want a prediction for the next hundred Salford City matches? 2-1…2-1 …2-1… This afternoon's game produced the fourth 2-1 scoreline in a row, with Salford City coming off worst in three of those games.

Warrington, sitting third in the league before this match, came to Moor Lane not daring to lose, terrified of their ever bawling manager, Shaun Reid, who scowled and skulked on touchline, calling them every name under the autumn sun. Even when they were winning. His brother, ex Everton, City and Bolton legend Peter Reid, was there too, watching the tirade, perhaps adapting his signature tune… `Cheer up, Shaun Reid'…

Whatever, it was the Ammies supporters who needed cheering up, Salford having won only game from the last eight before this match. By the 23rd minute that figure looked to be heading for nine, as defenders stood off a Warrington forward inviting him to shoot from just outside the penalty box which he duly did to open the scoring. 0-1.

For Salford, Nathan Bond had a good opening but his shot was smothered by the Warrington keeper, before Danny Browne rescued the Ammies at the other end, heading off the line from a well struck effort.

But, as half time approached, Salford equalised. Gary Prescott cut inside from the right wing and crossed for Aaron Swift to knock the ball forward for Aaron Walters, who swivelled and placed his shot into the corner of the net. A top move and a top goal. 1-1.
 
Warrington almost regained the lead before the interval with a header from a corner that pinged the angle of the post and crossbar. Salford were living dangerously…

The second half began with Warrington ballooning the ball over the bar, as they tended to rely on gozzy long range efforts, much to the displeasure of Mr Reid. Salford, trying to play the more cultured football via Nelson Motta, almost took the lead when Gary Prescott broke through, only for the keeper to block.

However it didn't take Warrington too long to take the lead again when a cross, which should have been stopped, spun into the six yard box to be headed home by an unmarked forward. 1-2.

And that's how it stayed. Salford keeper, Kieran O'Boyle made a flying save to deny another Warrington goal and, as the Ammies poured forward in the final minutes, Otis Gorman went close with a header. But Groundhog Day prevailed. 2-1. Another gallant effort by the Ammies – but another defeat. And almost a snister smirk at the final whistle by Shaun Reid.

Salford doesn't have a `professional' football club - and Salford City are semi-pro - the top team in Salford. Backing Salford's finest footy club makes us `commies' does it? You very sad man...

PROTEST AT THE LOWRY AS STUDENTS GET DEGREES

Yesterday, as students received their degrees at The Lowry, Professor James Newell and UCU supporters were outside raising awareness of how the University of Salford sacked him, after 27 years service, for basically failing to chase money in what has become a national cause against the marketisation of education.

Almost 3,500 people have signed a petition calling for Professor Newell's reinstatement, as he told the Salford Star that marketisation "is the essential issue that underlies the exorbitant fees that students have to pay..."
