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.

EVEN SALFORD MP IS BEING DISSED BY PENDLETON TOGETHER ON DANGEROUS CLADDING ISSUE

Star date: 23rd October 2018

PENDLETON TOGETHER TOTAL LACK OF ACCOUNTABILITY

The lack of accountability surrounding Pendleton Together, which manages the dangerously cladded blocks owned by Salford City Council, is becoming critical.

Even Salford and Eccles MP Rebecca Long-Bailey is getting dissed by the company when trying to set up meetings, while an email from the Salford Star asking to see the Trident report on safety in the blocks has been ignored, despite the Salford City Mayor stating that its conclusions, at least, should be released.

Here, the suspended chair of Malus Court TARA, Graeme Langton, reports on a Parliamentary reception he attended last week with the Salford MP...

CALLOUS COUNCIL TAX LETTER SCARES ELDERLY 

Hundreds, and possibly thousands, of letters have been sent by Salford City Council to elderly people threatening them with the loss of their single person Council Tax discount as it states 'Records show that multiple adults are living at your address', even though they are widows and widowers. The letter tells them to fill in an online form 'within the next 14 days' or the discount will be cancelled.

"It's not fair to be treating your senior citizens in this way, it's just callous" says Jill Royle, whose 92 year old non-computer literate mother became totally agitated on receiving the letter "Salford Council needs to know how much anguish it's caused."

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.

DIRTY NAPPIES AND PLASTIC BAGS PUT IN BLUE BINS

Tonnes of Salford's paper and card recycling collections are being rejected as people put the wrong stuff in blue bins, including dirty nappies, plastic bags, polystyrene packing and even electrical items.

Now Recycle for Greater Manchester has teamed up with Salford City Council to launch a What's In The Box? campaign to remind residents that only newspapers, magazines, greeting cards, paper wrapping paper, cardboard boxes and junk mail and envelopes can be put in the blue bins.
