WARRINGTON TOWN SALFORD CITY
 

Star date: 5th April 2010 

Warrington Town 1 Salford City 3

EASTER FUN IN WARRINGTON

Salford City continue an impressive run after this comfortable victory over Warrington Town which wafts us up to 18th place in the Unibond Division One North.

With games in hand over the teams above us, Salford City fans are now dreaming of a dramatic mid-table end of season position. Which might not sound dramatic to Man City and United fans, but would be the highest league placing in the Ammies' entire history!

Easter Monday hardly brought flocks of supporters to watch Warrington Town, which was unsurprising because no-one would ever find their ground even if Indiana Jones was leading the expedition.

Hidden away down a lane on the wrong side of a one way system, in roads splodged with five-way roundabouts, all the Salford City supporters got confused en route, as did all the Warrington Town fans judging by the meagre attendance.

The stayaways missed a footballing treat as Salford swept into the lead after a mere eight minutes, Dave Neville heading in a cross from Stuart Tulloch. Quarter of an hour later, Warrington were awarded a penalty after the over fussy, under sighted referee decided Darren Hockenhull had floored a Warrington forward. Justice was done, however, as the spot kick cannoned off the cross bar. And just three minutes later Salford went further out in front, as Steve Foster lobbed the keeper from outside the box. 2-0 Salford.

The second half saw the Ammies increase their lead within 15 minutes as Rhodri Giggs was tripped in the area and Steve Foster converted the penalty, sending the goalie the wrong way for a 3-0 lead.

With Martyn Andrews rock solid in the middle, and Matt Cross and Billy McCarthy getting their heads onto every ball at the back, Salford were never in any major danger from Warrington, and could have gone four up had Rhodri Giggs connected to a Alex Mortimer cross.

Warrington did push forward towards the very end and got their consolation goal in the last minute, a powerful header from a corner. Even with six minutes of Fergie Time, Warrington couldn't add another goal – and so Salford City go powering up the league into 18th place, overtaking Garforth who were stuffed at home by Harrogate Railway – Salford's next opponents.

With seven matches to play, and games in hand on teams above us, Salford might just end the season in mid table comfort – which would be a major achievement after last year's Great Escape…

Chairman and current joint caretaker manager, Darren Quick, has been telling Salford fans all season to keep their seatbelts fastened tightly. He might just be telling us to loosen them a bit this week…

SALFORD CITY MAYOR MISLEADING STATEMENTS ON DEVELOPER CASH

Star date: 19th April 2018

AS £5.5MILLION AVOIDED BY DEVELOPERS SALFORD MAYOR SAYS IT'S A 'MYTH'!

In the latest issue of Salford Council's propaganda mag, Life in Salford, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, has denounced the "myth" that "developers don't contribute money to the city. It's simply not true" he says.

Yes, they do contribute some money but they also avoid millions of pounds in payments and provision of affordable housing. Indeed, Salford Star analysis shows that developers avoided almost £5.5million in payments last year, as the Mayor only tells half the truth.

ASSISTANT DIRECTORS TO GET HUGE PAY RISES

Cash-strapped Salford City Council is to give huge pay rises to senior officers after a 'job evaluation exercise' moved them well up the pay scale. It follows the resignation of the Director of Finance and Corporate Business, and spreading the majority of his salary amongst other re-titled roles.

The Salford Star believes the officers are in line to share around £54,000 between them.
