SALFORD CITY FC TO GET INVESTMENT FROM GIGGS, BECKHAM, NEVILLE AND THE CLASS OF ‘92
 

A Salford Star Exclusive

Star date: 6th February 2014

THE CLASS OF '92 TO PUT SALFORD CITY FC ON THE MAP

Salford City FC is to receive major investment from the Manchester United `Class of '92' – Ryan Giggs, Gary and Phil Neville, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and David Beckham - in a bid to push the Ammies into the Football League, the Salford Star understands.

Secret talks have been ongoing for weeks, the Salford Star understands, between the board of Salford City FC and a consortium of ex Manchester United `Class of '92' players fronted by Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville but including David Beckham, Gary Neville and Nicky Butt.

David Beckham used to watch Salford City when ex Manchester United youth team players were turning out for the Ammies, while Ryan Giggs lives in Salford and his brother Rhodri used to manage and play for the team. Paul Scholes was born in Salford.

The Star also understands that the investment from the consortium will fund a new stand at Moor Lane that has been on the back burner since getting planning permission a few years ago, plus a new youth academy.

Salford City are currently ninth in the Evo-Stik First Division North, having stuffed Lancaster City 2-1 with only nine men last Saturday (see here). This weekend the Ammies have a `glamorous' fixture away at Ossett Town.

Former Chairman of Salford City, Darren Quick, tried to get big investment into the club and started the ball rolling during his tenure which ended last season. Darren always maintained that Salford, with a population of over 200,000 people, should be represented in the Football League proper. Now it appears that his dream is coming to fruition.

This afternoon no-one at Salford City FC would comment but Salford Star editor Stephen Kingston said: "The Manchester United Class of '92 players have obviously been reading the Salford Star match reports on the Ammies…this must have inspired them to invest in such a brilliant club.

"Hopefully Salford City FC can kick on from here and become the Football League club that a city the size of Salford should have" he added "This should finally put us on the map. The Tangerine Dream is alive and well."

The Friends of Kersal Moor are really pleased to hear this news. This ground has been ignored by the Council although thousands+ pounds have been given to the Reds Stadium. Yet the Moor Lane site is the one with a great Salford history. Did you know that the Manchester Football Club [then rugby football] played from this site from 1908 till 1968. Also the North versus the South game was played there in 1921 with nearly 5,000 spectators and the English trials were held there in both 1921 and 1938. So this ground is of historical significance to Salford. Now with backing from football 'royalty' it will be recognised again. The Friends of Kersal Moor have a promise from Heritage Lottery that the Clubhouse media equipment and historic sporting photographs will be funded once the clubhouse is complete. Congratulations. This should encourage the team to play with increased vigour.

NO TIMETABLE FOR THE REMOVAL OF CLADDING ON NINE SALFORD TOWER BLOCKS

IT COULD BE MONTHS BEFORE CLADDING REMOVED IN SALFORD

"There will be no waiting around in Salford whilst there are any questions about the safety of our residents..."

On Friday, Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett announced that cladding on nine Pendleton Together tower blocks was to be removed... "We take the safety of our residents very seriously and are taking immediate steps" he declared.

Yesterday, residents were told by Pendleton Together that the cladding will not be removed until replacement material is ready to go up – which could take months. And new fire safety advice has been issued, to leave not stay in the event of a fire.

SALFORD RESIDENTS BEING KEPT IN DARK OVER TOWER BLOCK DANGER

Star date: 24th June 2017

POTENTIALLY TOXIC CLADDING IN OVER A DOZEN SALFORD TOWER BLOCKS

At yesterday's press conference, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, said that removing cladding on the nine Pendleton tower blocks was the "right and moral thing to do". Yet Salford City Council knows every component in all cladding in the city which planning officers have passed, and has not disclosed this information.

The Salford Star has investigated, as far as it can, the cladding and materials used in tower block refurbishment and the results are frightening...Materials used on Magnolia Court, Sycamore Court and Mulberry Court should avoid "Exposed heat, flames and/or sparks"; Arthur Millwood Court and Canon Hussey Court are fitted with panels from the same manufacturer as Grenfell Tower, and there's more.
