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.

The so-called `ethical' Co-op is threatening around two dozen young homeless people with eviction from the Ducie Bridge pub next to its swanky new HQ in Manchester.

The Co-op is a partner in the £800million NOMA regeneration scheme which owns the pub, and a notice posted on the door states `unless you vacate immediately, court action will be taken against you...'

SALFORD FLOOD ALERT DISGRACE

Star date: 22nd August 2016

NO FLOOD DEFENCES, NO FLOOD REPORT, NO-ONE CAME NEAR

As the Environment Agency issued a flood alert for Salford this morning, residents in Lower Broughton panicked, moving furniture and goods into higher places. Even though the flood didn't happen, the situation showed that since Boxing Day almost nothing has changed in the area.

"I think it's wrong that there's been no actual work done to protect the residents" said Mike Duddy of the Mersey Basin Rivers Trust. Meanwhile the report into the last flood still hasn't been published.
