SALFORD HALIFAX TOWN
 

Star date: 16th September 2009

HALIFAX SHAYED IT

Salford City 0 AFC Halifax Town 3

There's obviously nowt better to do in Halifax than come for a night out in Salford, as hundreds and hundreds of Shaymen descended on Moor Lane on a Tuesday night to see their top of the table team take on the bottom placed Ammies…

`We're supposed to be at home…We're sup-po-o-o-s-s-s-e-d-d to be at home…'

There was hardly space for the regular hundred City supporters as around 500 Halifax fans came expecting to see a massacre at Moor Lane. Salford City - without a win in the league all season -  against unbeaten, top of the table, proper rich, former proper league team Halifax Town. And after half an hour it looked like that would be the case, as Salford succumbed to the Big Match atmosphere and Halifax steamed into a three goal lead, courtesy of two top shots from the edge of the area and a header off a corner.

City, unfortunately, just couldn't live with the Man United of the nether leagues, and before half time we were already singing our Great Escape theme tune…Indeed, the teams trod off at the interval to the strains of `Easy…Easy' from the Shaymen…

But they were to regret it in the second half as Salford got back into the game and should have pulled one back after Giggs rolled an inviting cross to ex Halifax striker Paul Gedham but he hit the chance just wide. Had that gone in it might have been a different story. But it didn't and it wasn't.

As the game wore on the greedy Halifax fans started to moan about their team's lack of massacre instinct. They needed 4-0 to go top of the table. But they only got 3-0. Shaym. Moral victory to Salford?  And we outsung the Halifax hordes…

Next stop: Mossley away on Saturday…the hills are alive with the sound of Salford?

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL THREAT LETTER CAUSES ELDERLY CITIZENS ANGUISH

Star date: 22nd October 2018

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.
