SALFORD CITY FC WIN PROMOTION TO VANARAMA NATIONAL LEAGUE
 

Star date: 22nd April 2018

SALFORD CITY ONE STEP AWAY FROM FOOTBALL LEAGUE

Salford City FC became champions of the National League North yesterday, despite losing 2-1 to Boston United. Harrogate Town's defeat at Bradford Park Avenue means that no-one can now catch the Class of '92 club.

Full details here...


Salford City FC won its third promotion in four years, becoming champions of the National League North following Harrogate Town's 3-1 defeat at Bradford Park Avenue.

Salford were also defeated 2-1 at home by Boston United yesterday but cannot now be caught. Next season the club will be just one step away from the Football League, playing the likes of Wrexham and Hartlepool in the Vanarama National League.

The end - Please explain what 'nine league' is if indeed you actually have any idea about football and non-league in particular. I won't even comment on the glory hunters remark as it doesn't deserve one. Hughes.m2@sky.com - So our average attendance of 1691 wouldn't sustain a National League side? Macclesfield Town have won the league this season with an average of 1731 - only the 12th best in the Division. I don't give a flying fig where Histon and North Ferriby are now as their success was based on just ONE individual not 5 iconic players who have stated time and time again that they are in it for the long haul together with Valencia owner Peter Lim. I'm sure you'd love us to fall by the wayside but please don't hold your breath! By the way I'd really be interested as to which teams both you and The end support! SALFORD TILL I DIE!

Very much in for a rude awakening in the National League as it’s the hardest league in Europe to get out of. The only way to be up there challenging requires a level of money which can only be obtained via the sugar daddy model which is essentially unsustainable and, given the crowds, will eventually come crashing down to the detriment of all concerned. Average crowds of 1,700 will not sustain anything in the NL so fans at some point need to ask themselves what’s so different about Salford? Why are their investors not “loaning” them money which will eventually need to be repaid? Oh, we, it might! Piles has reached his limit at Fleetwood. Fylde have yet to reach theirs but they will. Go see where Histon and North Ferriby United are now.

Targerine dream - you missed out having the budget of a championship team in the nine league. 1300 of the 1700 are just recent glory hunters.

Three promotions in four seasons, a superbly re-vamped Moor Lane ground - or should I say Peninsula Stadium - together with an average attendance of 1700 have made it another memorable season for the ever growing fan base of Salford City. Having turned pro at the start of the season we've again been the team that everyone wanted to beat but another massive effort now sees us just one step away from the Football League. There are up to 5 supporters coaches heading up to Leamington this coming weekend for our final match of the season with many fans going in fancy dress. It promises to be one heck of a party!

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.
