SALFORD CITY BAMBER BRIDGE
 

Star date: 27th February 2010 

Salford City 1 Bamber Bridge 2

While Man City were doing the business at the Bridge, the ref was doing his business for Bamber Bridge with two shocking decisions that turned this game.

However, the match will be remembered by fans for the return of Salford City legend Barry Massay and the opening of the new `Tangerine Club' – a huge portakabin that's now installed on the site of Moor Lane's burnt out clubhouse…

Full story here…

For Salford City chairman, Darren Quick, celebrating his 40th birthday, there were no presents from the referee and his flag people today. Just gifts for Bamber Bridge. A well dubious penalty, and a missed offside that only he and his assistants didn't see. Plus some dodgy yellow cards as the icing on the cake.

To be fair, Bamber were the better side in a first half that saw their forwards miss three or four good chances before the penalty was given half an hour into the game for a Salford tackle in the box which sent the ball out for a corner. A penalty?  And there's a flying Benitez!

Salford came so close to an equaliser just five minutes later when a Rhodri Giggs header hit the bar.  But it was Bamber who led 1-0 at half time with fans shouting `One nil to the referee…'

Five minutes into the second half and it was the same sorry story as a Bamber pass into the box put their forward through in an offside position that neither the `referee' or his `assistants' could spot. He coolly wacked it past Andy Robertson to make it 2-0 and what looked like game over.

But Salford came back, and after 60 minutes Rhodri Giggs finished clinically after being put through from a superb chip. From then on it was all Salford, with Bamber clearing off their own goal line and shots whizzing narrowly past both posts.

With ten minutes left Barry Massay, who played about a million games for the Ammies at centre forward until last season, returned in the tangerine shirt as a sub, much to the delight of everyone. But even big Bazza couldn't get the crucial equaliser and Bamber legged it with the points, leaving the pitch to chants of `You know you don't deserve it…'

Still the Ammies could drown their sorrows in the new Tangerine Club – a massive orange portakabin with a proper bar, pictures on the wall and everything. The tables were decorated with balloons and banners wishing Darren a happy 40th. There would have been no better present than the ref's head on a platter, with his two assistants' flags shoved up his nose…

Some people just don't have a sense of humour. By the way one can't actually write on a phone. To write by definition means "to form letters, words or symbols on a surface such as paper with an instrument such as a pen"

Who are you - the ref's bruvver? Or the ref?

Is this supposed to be journalism? Everyone involved with this match report should hold their head in shame. I can only assume this was written by a twelve year old on a mobile phone. Disgraceful.

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.
