SALFORD CITY OSSETT ALBION
 

Star date: 9th February 2010 

Salford City 1 Ossett Albion 2

A battling performance by Salford in the second half couldn't prevent another loss to another team below us in the league. 

Updated 10th Feb - Salford sack manager...

Ossett's club emblem looks like a black chess knight with an ice cream cone stuck on its head sucking an ice pop. Not very inspiring. And neither is its team. But Ossett Albion's well organised, dull players did just about enough to hang onto a lead that takes them above Salford City in the league.

After just ten minutes the Ammies could have been in front when Lee Neville tricked his way down the left wing and crossed for Craig Mahon whose goal bound shot was blocked. At this point Salford were looking good for a victory but after half an hour Ossett's Shane Kelsey arrowed a direct free kick from the left hand corner of the penalty area into the net to give the visitors the lead.

Salford hit back and eight minutes later equalised when Craig Mahon broke away and crossed beautifully for Ashley Mulholland to rifle in at the far post. 1-1 at the interval would have been a fair reflection of the half but with a minute to go to the break, Ossett got a corner on the right which bent straight out of play by the near post. The referee, deciding that no corner could possibly have been that badly taken, ordered yet another corner. This time it went right into the goalmouth, was flapped by Salford goalie Scott Tynan, and in the subsequent melee Kelsey scored his second to make it 2-1 to Ossett.

And that's how it stayed, despite a battling Salford performance in the second half that had the Ossett coach jumping up and down screaming at his players not to panic, like a tracksuited version of Corporal Jones…`Panic!…Panic!' shouted the Salford supporters, which the Ossett defence duly did but no Salford forwards could take advantage.

A much improved display from Salford after last Saturday's hillbilly hoedown but its Ossett and their knackered unicorn that take the points back to somewhere yonder in Yorkshire.

SALFORD CITY SACK MANAGER

Salford City has sacked manager Paul Wright after home losses to Rossendale and Ossett. The full statement from the club reads...

"Following last night’s defeat to Ossett Albion Salford City FC of the Unibond First Division North have parted company with team manager Paul Wright.

Despite good cup runs in FA competitions, this success has not been transferred into league matches and, of late, performances and results have been disappointing.

Paul Wright will be remembered in the folklore of Moor Lane for his role in last season’s ‘Great Escape’ when potential relegation was avoided on a memorable final day at Garfoth. Unfortunately, this season, the team has not made the progress anticipated and we again find ourselves at the wrong end of the league table.

Successive defeats to teams below the club in the Unibond First Division North have put renewed pressure on us and it was felt by the club Committee that a change was needed.

Salford City FC extend their best wishes to Paul along with their thanks for all his efforts on behalf of the club."

See comment below...First up Scott, there was no `silence' on Seddons, we lined fans up in front of their logo and took photos as a thank you. But we're not hypocrites - when a company does wrong we'll tell people about it. Same story with Hazel Blears - firstly we have never seen her at a game, ever. And secondly if she actually is helping the club, rather than queening in on what's already sorted, then she's doing the job which she's paid to do with wads of money and expenses. As far as selecting a three legged stoat - sounds better than Hazel, unfortunately! Please understand that the Salford Star is not political and has no axe to grind against anyone. All we do is put the information out there and hold people and organisations accountable for their actions and spending. If we didn't back the Hazel Must Go campaign we wouldn't be representing our readers. We're a community magazine doing our job. Hope this helps.

I support the Salford Star. Unequivacally. But lets have some balance. The Star has criticised Seddons for their unethical behaviour in Broughton, but when they help Salford City, silence. The Star criticises Blears, and then help select a no-mark for the General Election who will get less votes than a three-legged stoat. Isn't 'our Hazel' helping Salford City? Don't get me wrong, I'd tell her where to go. I have principles. Where does the Star stand on Salford City Football Club accepting Hazel's help and retaining her as Patron?

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?
