`Ee-ay...ee-ay…ee-ay-oooooo, it's up the Evo-Stik First Division North we go…'

Salford City finally got back to winning ways at Ossett Albion yesterday with a victory that will, hopefully, kickstart the season and get the Ammies looking up the league to the play-offs, rather than glancing nervously over their shoulder at the teams below.

After a horrendous run of results that has seen Salford win only one game in twelve, this victory on Ossett Albion's horrid sloping pitch was well deserved, and welcomed like the bed of a partner after a three month stretch behind bars. The relief emanating from the Ammies' camp even had the Ossett cows in the next field smoking cigarettes and plumping up their pillows.

In the first half, however, things looked as bad as the storm clouds gathering over the pitch. Ossett took the lead when a long throw was headed in, and no matter how hard Salford players battled, the equaliser just wouldn't come. Nathan Bond, stood on the goal-line, couldn't connect to a swirling corner; Aaron Walters, bursting through, was denied by the keeper's arm, and Danny Browne blasted wide from a good opening. Half time: 1-0 to Ossett.

In the second half, the Ammies were a different proposition. Mark Battersby equalised within three minutes of the re-start, latching onto a cross, controlling the ball and hammering it past the Ossett keeper. 1-1.

Minutes later it could have been two, Matthew Grimshaw getting in a great header that just whizzed past the post. With Ossett under the cosh, Salford piled on the pressure, bringing on the superb Nelson Mota, who promptly caused havoc on the right wing, skipping past defenders at will.

It was one of Nelson's top runs that led to the winner, leaving two defenders for dead before snapping in a low cross that was slid home by 17 year old debutant sub James Kirby. 2-1.

As Ossett lumbered forward in search of an equaliser, keeping the cows busy by hoofing shots into their field, Salford almost made it three. In the dying seconds of the match, Mota again worked his magic on the right, crossing for Aaron Swift to see his point blank effort stopped by the keeper.

At the final whistle the team and the fans celebrated a much needed, much deserved victory. Hopefully the Ammies can kick on from here, starting in the league at home to Kendal next Saturday…

Before then Salford City play Cammell Laird (again) in the Doodson Cup on Tuesday night at Moor Lane, 7:45pm kick off.

Star date: 21st June 2018

COUNCIL SPENT £5,750 ON MIPIM PR IN SOUTH OF FRANCE

Salford Council spent almost £10,000 on the jaunt to the MIPIM property orgy in Cannes. A newly published contract register shows that, as well as the £4,022 costs for the City Mayor and two officers to go to the South of France paid by unknown private sector companies, the Council also spent £5,750 on marketing and PR for MIPIM.

The contract register also shows the Council is spending £9,500 on a 'Salford Story' press consultant, £118,000 on its failed 'digital community hub', over £14,000 on a 'leadership programme' and, er, £25,000 on milk and bread?

DEVASTATING SURVEY OF NORTH WEST COUNCIL WORKERS SHOWS LOCAL SERVICES COLLAPSING

Star date: 18th June 2018

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

Star date: 18th June 2018

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.
