SALFORD CITY AFC FYLDE
 

Star date: 2nd February 2010  

Salford City 3 AFC Fylde 1

SALFORD ARE BACK!

After disappointing back to back defeats to Radcliffe Borough, the Ammies bounced back with a convincing stuffing of AFC Fylde tonight. 

As the icy mist engulfed Moor Lane, tangerine hearts were warmed by a victory which lifts Salford to the club's highest ever league position…

Some lovely Fylde pensioners who'd been sat in the main stand dropping scotch into their flasks of hot tea turned around to Salford supporters at the final whistle and complained about the noise. 

"We shouldn't have sat here" said a nice Lancashire lady in a crocheted bonnet "it was very loud"…

Loud? Wait 'til Salford really start playing – the roof will come off. In the meantime it was unbounded joy as this first win since Christmas hoists the Ammies to a lofty 19th place in the Unibond First Division, well out of the relegation zone with up to four games in hand on our nearest rivals.

But it could have all been so different as Fylde took the lead after half an hour, following a string of Salford attacks that came to nowt. Fylde might well have gone in 2-0 up at the break but for a super save by Scott Tynan making his debut after signing from Norwich Victoria.

Instead, five minutes into the second half another debutant, the impressive Lee Neville, signed from Witton Albion, rifled in an equaliser after a superb lob over the Fylde defence by Martyn Andrews.

From then on, confidence swept through the team as a few minutes later Rhodri Giggs headed narrowly over the bar following a top run and cross by Lee Neville. At this point Salford were looking comfortable, with Lee's older brother, Dave Neville, spraying passes around the midfield, and Craig Mahon twisting and turning his way through the Fylde defence. And it was Mahon who gave Salford the lead, sliding onto a Giggs cross with twenty minutes left.

Soon after it was 3-1, a Fylde defender knocking the ball past his own keeper following a cross from Lee Neville, again causing consternation down the left wing. It could have been four, it could have been five…or it could have been a 3-3 draw as Fylde hit back with a series of chances that their pissed grannies in the stand could have converted. A shot headed off the line was the closest they got.

But 3-1 it stayed and Salford go marching on with two homes games to come against bottom of the league Rossendale United this Saturday and third bottom Ossett Albion next Tuesday. 

For the mid winter moment all is looking sunny at Salford City…

ARTISTS TAKE UP RESIDENCE IN CONTROVERSIAL URBAN SPLASH SALFORD DEVELOPMENT

Star date: 15th October 2018

ARTISTS TO CHALLENGE HOUSING POLICIES WHILE LIVING IN LUXURY HOUSE

'You can't even stop your car to take in the breathtaking sterilization of the place...'

Last week, artists moved into a stunning Urban Splash house in the new Springfield Lane development as part of a year-long project called Tenancy in which they will explore 'what it's like to live in a city negotiating rapid change' and 'who is benefitting'.

The Springfield Lane development, being branded as in 'Manchester', has no affordable housing and avoided hundreds of thousands of pounds in planning fees. Can the artist project, actually sponsored by Tom Bloxham and Urban Splash, make a difference?
