SALFORD CITY STALLED
 

Salford City 1 Lancaster City 2

Last night at Moor Lane the Great Escape was all Lancaster's as they somehow smuggled the points out of Salford against all logic and odds. Lancs were totally tortured by Jody Banim's man of the match performance. Full of swerves, flicks and tricks, by the end Salford's no 9 had three quaking defenders near him every time he got the ball.

However, while Salford has a new hero, we ain't got any bleedin' points on the board yet…

So, to a balmy, barmy evening at Moor Lane for the first home game of the season. And we're still in the bar finishing a pint of Guinness when, through the window, we see Salford take the lead, as the ball rebounds off the Lancaster post and Gary Sampson knocks it in. Good things might come to those who wait but they just might miss all the goals too…

Out in the late summer air, the only minor irritants are the pesky midges and the constantly moaning Lancaster defenders, as Salford dominate the half. Banim's full of running, Giggs is looking lively and Lancaster's best effort is a vain penalty claim when an attacker falls over in the Salford box. Half time: 1-0 Salford.

Er, we're still in the bar finishing a pint of Guinness when, through the window, we see Lancaster equalise. Good things might come to those who wait but they just might miss all the goals too…

Out on the right touchline, Banim is absolutely overrunning the moaning Lancaster defenders, and one superb dribble and cross sets up Gary Sampson, stood virtually on the penalty spot with time and the whole goal to aim at. His shot flies over the bar in a carbon copy repeat of his effort earlier in the half. 

Lancaster gallop down the other end and grab the lead when one of their giants gets his head to a corner. That's two efforts on target and two goals.

As the match draws to its close Salford pile on the pressure with everything positive coming via Jody Banim, whose cross in the last minute is met by Steve Moores at the far post. His header squirms just wide. And Salford have lost the first home game of the season.

At Moor Lane, swigging pints of Guinness, good things didn't always come to those who wait. But from now on, it's going to be a game of two halves…

Enjoyable and lively report, and I wouldn't disagree with much, though if you'd been at the Salford end you'd have realised that the home defenders don't need any lessons in the art of moaning: perhaps it's what defenders do best! The Salford keeper's language , though, was beyond a joke: every sentence began with the F-word which could have been heard all the way to Lancaster.Notice we took off our chief giant to give you a chance, but a phrase about cows'backsides and banjos comes to mind.You will play worse than that and win, though, and lively wing play will serve you well.Best wishes...when not playing us!

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.

TONNES OF SALFORD RECYCLING PAPER REJECTED AS PEOPLE PUT WRONG STUFF IN BLUE BINS

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.
