Salford City stormed the second half to hammer Harrogate Railway and move up to tenth in the league this afternoon as the team continues to go from strength to strength.

A scrappy first half ended goal-less, unremarkable except for two superb saves by the respective keepers. First, Kieran O'Boyle made an incredible starfish save to thwart a point blank header from a Harrogate forward…

…And, as the first half looked to be withering on the vine of its ennui, Mark Battersby's shot from six yards out looked certain to end in the net, until the keeper pulled off a brilliant diving one handed save on the goal line. Half time 0-0.

The drabness of the afternoon soon wore off two minutes after the re-start, Matt Purcell curling a ball into the corridor of uncertainty on the edge of the six yard box where new signing Porya `Rio' Ahmadi nipped in front of the keeper to prod home. 1-0

Salford went looking for the second as Aaron Walters shot just over the bar, and later burst through the heart of the Harrogate defence only for the keeper to deny him with his shoulder. Mark Battersby also went close with a shot that fizzed past the top of the post.

While Harrogate attacked in fits and starts, usually ballooning shots well wide of the goal, on 80 minutes the Ammies sealed the points. Matthew Purcell teased a posse of defenders right over near the corner flag before sending over a sublime, perfect cross that sub, Josh Messer, who had only just come onto the pitch, headed firmly into the net. 2-0.

The margin of victory could have been even wider but both Lee Hodgkinson and Matthew Parcell blasted chances over the bar. Still, 2-0, a clean sheet and the double over sorry Harrogate which lifts the Ammies over the Yorkshire team in the league.

Next to come, sandwiched by Prescot Cables at home, are away games against teams directly above the Ammies in the league – Clitheroe and Ramsbottom United. Win these and Salford fans can start dreaming of the play-offs again.

EVEN SALFORD MP IS BEING DISSED BY PENDLETON TOGETHER ON DANGEROUS CLADDING ISSUE

Star date: 23rd October 2018

PENDLETON TOGETHER TOTAL LACK OF ACCOUNTABILITY

The lack of accountability surrounding Pendleton Together, which manages the dangerously cladded blocks owned by Salford City Council, is becoming critical.

Even Salford and Eccles MP Rebecca Long-Bailey is getting dissed by the company when trying to set up meetings, while an email from the Salford Star asking to see the Trident report on safety in the blocks has been ignored, despite the Salford City Mayor stating that its conclusions, at least, should be released.

Here, the suspended chair of Malus Court TARA, Graeme Langton, reports on a Parliamentary reception he attended last week with the Salford MP...

CALLOUS COUNCIL TAX LETTER SCARES ELDERLY 

Hundreds, and possibly thousands, of letters have been sent by Salford City Council to elderly people threatening them with the loss of their single person Council Tax discount as it states 'Records show that multiple adults are living at your address', even though they are widows and widowers. The letter tells them to fill in an online form 'within the next 14 days' or the discount will be cancelled.

"It's not fair to be treating your senior citizens in this way, it's just callous" says Jill Royle, whose 92 year old non-computer literate mother became totally agitated on receiving the letter "Salford Council needs to know how much anguish it's caused."

AFTER TWO DAY STRIKE HOSPITAL WORKERS WIN NHS PAY PARITY

"We stuck together and we won!" Vicky, cleaner at Royal Bolton Hospital

Bolton Royal Hospital workers are celebrating a massive victory after taking two days of strike action over pay parity earlier this month, supported by Salford UNISON and many other trade unionists.

The workers, who include cleaners, catering staff, porters and security staff, are employed by Bolton NHS Trust's subsidiary company iFM, doing the same jobs as other NHS workers but were offered pay at a lesser rate. Now they have won an increase in line with other NHS workers, backdated to last April.

DIRTY NAPPIES AND PLASTIC BAGS PUT IN BLUE BINS

Tonnes of Salford's paper and card recycling collections are being rejected as people put the wrong stuff in blue bins, including dirty nappies, plastic bags, polystyrene packing and even electrical items.

Now Recycle for Greater Manchester has teamed up with Salford City Council to launch a What's In The Box? campaign to remind residents that only newspapers, magazines, greeting cards, paper wrapping paper, cardboard boxes and junk mail and envelopes can be put in the blue bins.
