WELSH SEAGULLS' DROPPINGS

Gavin and Stacey… Red Dragons… Tom Jones… Castle hoppers… Seagulls that dive-bomb and nick your pies while you're walking on the prom… your boys took a terrible beating tonight in Salford…

Colwyn Bay arrived third in the Unibond First Division North with high hopes of a play off place and probably thinking the three points against Salford were already in the bag. Even supporters on the Salford City fans forum didn't give their own club a chance, given that top scorer Rhodri Giggs was missing from the team which hasn't won at home for weeks. How miserable and sad and wrong they all were.

As the rain pelted down on Moor Lane, Salford's whole team produced a performance well worthy of the win, coming from behind to storm into the lead and hold on comfortably to the final whistle.

Even when Colwyn Bay took the lead after twenty minutes – a good save by Andy Roberston falling kindly for their forward to knock in – it was the team's first shot on goal. "One shot, one goal… One shot one goal… You know you don't deserve it…" sang the Salford fans.

Meanwhile Salford were buzzing, Stuart Tulloch, Lewis Nightingale, Steve Foster and Dave Neville constantly combining to cause Colwyn trouble. First a Nightingale cross nearly put Foster in on goal. Then a Tulloch cross and Foster header brought a top drawer save from the Colwyn keeper. Then a Nightingale run followed by a Tulloch cross was almost headed in by Foster but just flashed over the bar…

The equaliser had to come and just before half time Foster was tripped in the area, brushed himself off and dispatched the penalty kick with ease. Half time 1-1, with Salford looking by far the top team.

Half Time Ponderings: Colwyn Bay aren't stupid. They don't have a Welsh dragon as their mascot, just a white seagull. Is this a bit girly? No chance! Anyone who's taken a walk along the Colwyn bay will know that Welsh seagulls are way more dangerous and vicious than dragons...swooping down and preying on any tourist who dares to carry a sarny or pie in bird's eye view. And they don't give a shit whether you're a princess or not. Welsh dragons are out. Fierce Welsh seagulls are in. Although shame the team didn't match up...

It took only six minutes of the second half for the Ammies to go in front. A Salford corner was headed on, and met at the far post by Stuart Tulloch who hooked it into the roof of the net. Salford City 2 Colwyn Bay 1.

Salford continued to dominate the match, and while Colwyn Bay had a few moments when they could have pulled level, it was the Ammies who created the better chances and could have hit three with a bit more composure in front of goal.

So 2-1 was the final score, with Salford City re-claiming fourth bottom place from Harrogate Railway who also won last night. Now it's onto Curzon Ashton on Saturday, where Salford will hopefully push on and banish any relegation thoughts for good.

Tonight was a top performance by a team that's starting to believe in itself…
