SALFORD SUFFER WINTER BLUES
 

Star date: 24th November 2013

BATTLING SALFORD SUFFER FARSLEY ASSAULT

Salford City 2 Farsley 4

Battling Salford couldn't make it three league victories on the run as Farsley won at Moor Lane to push their own play-off hopes. A Richard Smith header and a Mark Battersby penalty for the Ammies just couldn't inch Salford the points.

For the first quarter of this match it looked to have the potential of being the best of the season with fast skilful play by both sides. And then…

After only six minutes the Fasley winger seemed to control the ball with his hand before hitting a shot that opened the scoring. 0-1. Then, four minutes later, Salford equalised when full back Richard Smith headed in from a corner. 1-1.

With the play flowing from end to end, Ammies fans thought their team had taken the lead when James Kirby knocked a cross into the net. But the referee decided that the Salford centre forward had used his arm and promptly booked him. The jury is still out on that one (see photo).

While Salford players were still pondering what could have been the lead, Farsley went straight down the other end and scored. 1-2. And that's how it stayed until half time.

After the break Farsley turned on the style, keeping possession and finding men well, while their skilful forwards were a constant handful for the Ammies defenders.

The Yorkshire team extended their lead with a header from a free kick. 1-3. And put the game out of reach when the Salford players stood off and allowed an attacker to run at them and hit a low drive past Andrew Mills from the edge of the area. 1-4.

As the final whistle drew close, Mark Battersby pulled one back from the penalty spot after about ten Salford players were hacked down in the six yard box as they pounced on a cross. 2-4.

So the two game unbeaten league run has come to a close with the Ammies much changed line-up still trying to gel. As Farsley ran the game for long periods, fans were looking for tricky Salford players like Nelson Mota to get them going. But he wasn't in the team, nor on the bench. They couldn't have let him go. Could they?

“after about ten Salford players were hacked down in the six yard box as they pounced on a cross” That is a remarkably crowded goal area. Just how did the referee manage to see anything amongst all those bodies?

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?
