SALFORD CITY RUN RIOT AT MOOR LANE
 

Star date: 16th November 2013

MINT AMMIES HIT SIX AGAINST SORRY KENDAL

Salford City 6 Kendal Town 3

Super Salford City sizzled at Moor Lane this afternoon, going two up after just six minutes and almost running out 6-1 winners before Kendal pulled two goals back in the dying moments.

It was the Ammies' highest ever score at this level with James Kirby scoring a couple, and Danny Browne, Sam Fitzgerald, Matthew Purcell and sub Ryan Gibson adding to the rout.

Salford City totted up their highest ever score in the Evo-Stik First Division North by hitting six and playing high flying Kendal Town off the Moor Lane pitch today.

Within only thirty seconds of the kick off, James Kirby brought down a high ball, turned and hammered in a shot from the edge of the area to open the scoring. 1-0.

Five minutes later, Danny Browne rifled home the second after a Kirby header had set him clear of the home defence. 2-0. And after 16 minutes Sam Fitzgerald hooked home a cross from Browne to make it 3-0.

At this point, Salford fans were already reaching for the record books, with the Ammies following up last week's league win at Ossett Albion in style. It wasn't so much that Kendal were poor, as Salford were sparkling with some great passing, top movement, tight control and mint finishing.

But just as Salford went looking for the fourth goal, Kendal hit back when their winger seemed to control the ball with his hand before skipping past a defender and launching a cross that was touched into the net 3-1.

The Ammies hit back again, with James Kirby forcing a great save from the Kendal keeper – but from the resulting corner, the keeper could do nothing as Kirby back headed over him to make it 4-1 a half time.

Salford came out revved up for the second half, and within a minute of the re-start Matthew Purcell had been put through from midfield and chipped the advancing keeper to make it 5-1.

The Ammies could afford to relax a bit which let Kendal move forward but sub, Ryan Gibson, made it 6-1 from a superb cross by Mark Battersby. As the Salford fans bayed for seven, the Ammies took their foot off the pedal, and Kendal snatched two very late goals to make the scoreline more respectable than it should have been.

This was a much changed Salford line-up to go with the much changed management structure this week that saw fans favourite, Barry Massay step down and former player Stuart Rudd come in as Phil Taylor's number two.

With the team changes, Salford City now look more physical and compact, and are up to 12th in the league. If this form continues the impossible might just be possible… Meanwhile, this was a history-making result.

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?
