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!

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.

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL SPENT ALMOST £10,000 ON MIPIM PROPERTY JAUNT

Star date: 21st June 2018

COUNCIL SPENT £5,750 ON MIPIM PR IN SOUTH OF FRANCE

Salford Council spent almost £10,000 on the jaunt to the MIPIM property orgy in Cannes. A newly published contract register shows that, as well as the £4,022 costs for the City Mayor and two officers to go to the South of France paid by unknown private sector companies, the Council also spent £5,750 on marketing and PR for MIPIM.

The contract register also shows the Council is spending £9,500 on a 'Salford Story' press consultant, £118,000 on its failed 'digital community hub', over £14,000 on a 'leadership programme' and, er, £25,000 on milk and bread?

'WE RECOGNISE THE HISTORIC INTEREST'...BUT THEY'RE BEING DEMOLISHED!

Despite musical protests and petitions, the National Grid is adamant that the Salford gas holders, made famous in the Dirty Old Town anthem, will be demolished.

Campaigners are asking for the Grid to re-think a new use for the structures, like in many other towns and cities, but the company states that while "We recognise the historic interest in the Salford gasholder...the structure is being dismantled..."

DEVASTATING SURVEY OF NORTH WEST COUNCIL WORKERS SHOWS LOCAL SERVICES COLLAPSING

Star date: 18th June 2018

OVER 80% OF COUNCIL WORKERS HAVE NO CONFIDENCE IN SERVICES AND ALMOST 50% THINKING OF LEAVING THEIR JOBS

A survey of almost 1,500 local council workers in the North West reveals that 81% have no confidence in the future of local services, 49% are thinking of leaving their jobs, 54% believe their council no longer delivers quality services, and 45% think that their employer doesn't make the right decisions for the public.

The other results of the survey by UNISON to coincide with its local government conference make equally depressing reading, as the union states that "Vital local services in the North West are collapsing".

SALFORD TIME OUT FOR CARERS

Star date: 18th June 2018

TRIPS, CAKES, MASSAGE, ADVICE AND CHAT AS CARERS TAKE TIME OUT

"I was absolutely weary...I needed to get out of the house" Ernie

Caring for a loved one is indeed a labour of love but it can also be life consuming and draining. So a group called Time Out For Carers is making a difference, running weekly sessions where escapism is the order of the day.

There's free massages, trips out, advice on allowances, tea and coffee and cakes, but, most importantly, relaxed informal chats with carers who are all in the same position.
