FIRE DESTROYS SALFORD CITY CLUBHOUSE
A fire early on Sunday morning has destroyed Salford City's clubhouse which, together with its revenue earning bar, housed lots of photos, opposing team pennants and mementos from the Ammies history.
"The Fire Service believes the blaze was started deliberately in waste bins which were adjacent to the clubhouse" says Salford City spokesman Frank McCauley "A major source of income on match days, the club committee are meeting this week to discuss how best to replace the building, which has been used by the football club for twenty years but which will now need to be demolished."
Salford's only big football club is now asking any local individuals or companies who can be of any assistance to make contact with chairman Darren Quick on 07779 656388.
So come on Mr Merry, get on the phone now…
