SALFORD CITY CHORLEY FC
 

Star date: 16th April 2010

Salford City 3 Chorley 0

SUPER SUPER SUPER SUPER SALFORD'S ICING ON THE CHORLEY CAKE

Sherpa Tenzing…Sir Edmund Hilary…Richard Branson's balloon… You boys are taking a terrible battering as Salford City scale even greater heights than you could ever have imagined…

With this stunning result the Ammies have now leapfrogged Prescot Cables and Chorley to hit 14th in the Unibond First Division North – equal on points to teams the next two places above us, and we've got a game in hand…

Salford City are comin' on strong as we stuffed Chorley right in their cakeholes.

Match report here…


Salford City 3 Chorley 1

It just gets better and better at Moor Lane these spring daze as Salford City continue their fabulous run of victories, this time stuffing Chorley 3-0. If the season never ended the Ammies would keep going all the way to the Football League…to the Premier League…to Europe…to the World Cup itself on this form. Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant!

Apart from one shot that hit the bar in the first half, Chorley never got a look in as Salford City, playing their third game in a week, continued where they left off at Radcliffe Borough the other night to hit three more stunning goals.

Only five minutes into the game Lee Neville crossed for Rhodri Giggs to volley just over the bar, and ten minutes later the incredible Steve Foster, who can't stop scoring since his return to Moor Lane, wacked in the first goal from the edge of the area.

A short while later, Giggs forced the Chorley keeper into a spectacular save from a header, and a few minutes later broke clear but couldn't quite find Foster lurking on the edge of the six yard box.

With time running out in the first half, Foster tried his speciality lob over the keeper which just landed the wrong side of the crossbar, and then, after Chorley had hit the bar and Alex Mortimer had done brilliantly to stop a follow up shot, it was Salford's turn to hit the woodwork. A Giggs cross, Foster again on the edge of the area smacked his shot against the post, and Martyn Andrews follow up cross flashed across the goalmouth with no-one there to finish. Half time 1-0.

Almost straight from the second half kick off, Stuart Tulloch curled a pass to Lee Neville at the far post to knock in for number two, and Tulloch repeated the trick for Giggs to make it 3-0 late on. 

Giggs was substituted straight after his goal, and Salford took their foot off the pedal, saving themselves for Fylde away this Saturday. Win that, and the Ammies are looking at 12th in the league, which would be beyond anyone's wildest dreams…

Super super super super Salford City are giving us another season to remember!
