RADCLIFFE BOROUGH SALFORD CITY
 

Star date: 14th April 2010

Radcliffe Borough 1 Salford City 3

SUPER SUPER SUPER SALFORD CITY!!!

Oh yes!!! Get yer oxygen masks on… Get the suckers on the hooves of mountain goats… Salford City are scaling heights unknown in the club's whole history. Yep, we're looking down on six teams below us in the Unibond First Division North – a full 20 points in front of the relegation spots.

Salford are zooming up the league after another top performance to stuff Radcliffe on their own ground. Does life get any better than this? No chance!

Full match report and photos here…

Woodley Sports… Wakefield …Garforth Town …Harrogate Railway …Ossett Albion …Rossendale…now all sit below the mighty Salford City as the club reaches the highest league placing in its whole history.

16th in the table might not impress the likes of Man City and United but in Salford City land this is incredible. Just a few months ago we were staring a relegation scrap in the face for the second year running – now, with games in hand on teams immediately above us, we're looking for a comfortable mid table finish. And the Ammies aren't just scraping wins against teams near the top of the table, we're playing them off the park.

Tonight was Radcliffe Borough's turn to be turned over. A team that stuffed us 6-2 at home in the Mickey Mouse cup earlier this season were made to look second best in every department. After 20 minutes an inch perfect ball from Lee Neville was met at the far post by Steve Foster to open the scoring for Salford.

Ten minutes later Radcliffe equalised from a corner - and later gave Salford their only scare when a shot that rebounded off the post was whipped towards the open net... but Andy `Gordon Banks' Robertson, somehow flew across the goal to paw it out and keep the Ammies on level terms. Half time 1-1.

Radcliffe directors and guests were still eating their prawn pies in the executive hospitality `conservatory' when Steve Foster curled in Salford's second within a minute of the second half. And they must have choked on their prawn burgers when a few minutes later Martyn Andrews headed in to make it Radcliffe 1 Salford City 3.

Later in the half Salford should have had a penalty following a clear hand ball in the area, and brilliant Steve Foster was a whisker away from his hat trick as he just failed to connect to a cross in the six yard box. Meanwhile, Radcliffe offered virtually nothing in return, bar a few half hearted attacks as their miserable supporters headed towards the exits.

Now, one look at the Unibond table and you can taste the rarefied atmosphere of safety -and see the promised land of the Unibond Premier looming for next season…

Salford City play again this Thursday night v Chorley kick off at Moor Lane 7:45pm. See the renaissance for yourself. All for seven quid.
