SALFORD CITY PRESCOT CABLES
 

Star date: 25th August 2010 

SALFORD UNPLUG CABLES TO SPARK FA CUP BID

Prescot Cables 1 Salford City 2

Salford City beat Prescot Cables on their own cabbage patch of a pitch last night to get confidence soaring before Saturday's big FA Cup tie at home to big spenders Chorley.

It's going to be the Arsenal of the Evo-Stik League v the Chelsea of the Evo-Stik.

After Saturday's last gasp 2-2 draw with Trafford an independent non-league ground hopper called Salford City `the Arsenal of the Evo-Stik League' for the way the team plays pretty flowing football. We like that tag.

Even on Prescot Cables' turf that was more suited to horse racing than the beautiful game, Salford bravely attempted to play flair footy and should have romped home.

Rhodri Giggs opened the scoring after a few minutes, a superb curled free kick from the edge of the area that looped over the Cables' keeper Farah Jackson. Salford were comfortable in possession and could have trebled the score before half time but for some stunning saves by Jackson, first from Dean Cooper and then from Steve Foster.

During this period the pitch was Cables' best player, the soggy overlong grass causing players to slip in the bog. No-one stayed down too long in case they sank, never to be seen again. Think Derby County's Baseball Ground, circa 1970s, crossed with your old school footy pitch and you'd be halfway there.

But still Salford dominated and in the second half got their reward when Dean Cooper, finding himself free in the area, stroked in the second. Salford went hunting for more goals but Jackson again rescued Cables with a dramatic double save from sub Ben Beresford and Steve Foster.

Salford, in the new green away kit, were cantering home. And then, with about ten minutes to go, a back pass to keeper Andy Robertson got stuck in the bog and Lee Cooper had to bring down the Prescot attacker who was clean through. Lee got sent off for his troubles and the Cables pulled one back from the penalty.

The player numbers were equalised at least when a nasty challenge on Jamie Tandy led to another sending off. With 10 players each, five minutes to play on our watch and three hundred minutes on the ref's special Fergie time watch, the game seemed to go on forever. But Salford hung on for a well deserved win.

Next up Chorley in the FA Cup at Moor Lane on Saturday. Chorley, the Chelsea-a-like big spenders of the Evo-Stik versus Salford City, the Arsenal of the Evo-Stik. We urge everyone in Salford to get down to Moor Lane and make it a huge FA Cup atmosphere.

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?

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.
