Salford City 3 Woodley Sports 1

SUPER SUPER SUPER SALFORD CITY SIGN OFF WITH WIN…

Salford City secured a highest ever, history making 11th spot in the Unibond North First Division with a 3-1 win over Woodley. But that's only half the story of a fantastic season that has seen storming cup runs, eight victories out of the last nine games, and a climb up the league that would have Sherpa Tenzing gasping for breath.

For the final match of the season, the Ammies threw the gates open with free admission, and after the game players put money behind the bar to buy supporters drinks. A top gesture from a top club. Roll on next season!

DARREN QUICK'S TANGERINE ARMY…

After the dust had settled on this comfortable victory, Darren Quick - ex player, current chairman and co-caretaker manager of Salford City - said that he wanted to keep the current squad of players together, whoever comes in to manage the club. He was echoing the views of fans who know that if these players can be retained Salford City will be looking at promotion next season.

From staring a relegation fight in the face just a few months ago (getting beat at home by the likes of rock bottom hillbilly Rossendale), since Darren and co-manager Mark Molyneaux have taken over the whole spirit of the club has been lifted and it's been victory after victory after victory. On Tuesday the club's committee will meet to decide who the new manager is to be – and if it's the same team of Darren and Molly, no-one will be complaining.

To end this season, though, it was fun all the way, Steve Foster opening the scoring with his now trademark lob over the Woodley keeper.  Fozzy ran over to the touchline to don a well fitting `Iron Man' mask as part of his celebrations.

Chance after chance followed but the second goal just wouldn't go in, Foster drawing a great diving save from the Woodley keeper and Rhodri Giggs going close on a number of occasions. But on the stroke of half time a Woodley defender played a square ball right into the path of Foster who curled in the second.  Half time: Salford City 2 Woodley 0

Woodley weren't about to roll over, and with about half an hour to go in the second half pulled a goal back. Meanwhile, Giggs, Stuart Tulloch and Foster all might have made it three but the killer goal was not to come until the last minute when the Woodley keeper went up for a corner and got stranded as Salford cleared. Stuart Tulloch carried the ball from his own half and stroked in the third from way outside the Woodley area. Final score: Salford City 3 Woodley Sports 1.

So a great end to the season that saw Salford City almost break through to the FA Cup first round with great wins over Hyde United, Skelmersdale and Marine before being ousted by Blyth Spartans in extra time of a replay.11th in the Unibond North is also the highest the club has achieved during its whole history. All this against the backdrop of the club house burning down, 90 players registered, a managerial casualty and loads of matches lost through the snow and ice.

Throughout the season Darren Quick has been urging fans not to unfasten their seatbelts. It's been turbulent. But it's been great!
