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…

Full story here…

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…

PEPPA PIG COMMUNISM GRAFFITI GOES SUBVERSIVE IN SALFORD

SALFORD QUAYS DEVELOPER TO AVOID £1MILLION PAYMENT WHILE NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROVIDED

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
