FA CUP COMES TO SALFORD
 

Star date: 5th September 2010 

FA CUP COMES TO SALFORD CITY ON TUESDAY

The FA Cup is coming to Moor Lane, home of Salford City FC, on Tuesday night to promote the Ammies' FA Cup tie with Northwich Victoria next Saturday.

Salford City has a league game against Curzon Ashton on Tuesday night and supporters are invited to have their photo taken with the FA Cup before the 7:45pm kick off. Get there very early though because the famous old trophy is off on its travels again at 8pm.

Meanwhile, Salford City, with a patched up team, drew 1-1 with Radcliffe Borough yesterday.

Radcliffe Borough 1 Salford City 1

A last gasp goal by Radcliffe Borough denied Salford City their second away win of the season. The Ammies, with five players missing, were forced to field new signings who were clearly not match fit, and as the game wore on Salford's tired legs just couldn't hold out for the three minutes of added time.

It was a different story in the first half as Salford looked comfortable, with new signing Dan Heffernan causing havoc in the home defence and forcing the Borough keeper to make a diving save after a smart turn and shot. Salford were well on top and took a desrved lead when Steve Foster opened the scoring after 40 minutes, knocking in a corner at the far post.

In those last few minutes of the first half Salford piled on the pressure and right on the stroke of half time Foster almost doubled his tally beating the keeper with a flick, only to see his effort scrambled off the line by a Borough defender.

In the second half, Radcliffe, perhaps sensing tiredness in the Salford ranks, began to press forward and stand-in keeper Charlie Dorsey was forced to make two superb saves while other shots whistled past his post. Even so, Salford could have wrapped up the points with ten minutes remaining when sub Chris Baguley, re-signed last week to his former club (along with brother Jamie), got the ball tangled up in his legs with the goal gaping.

It would have been a hard earned victory but Radcliffe equalised in the 90th minute, and another two points went astray, following last week's shocking refereeing decision which allowed Clitheroe to steal three points in injury time.

Salford have a chance to put the season back on track, firstly with the home league game against Curzon Ashton on Tuesday night, and then with the massive FA Cup tie against Norwich Victoria on Saturday.

AS £5.5MILLION AVOIDED BY DEVELOPERS SALFORD MAYOR SAYS IT'S A 'MYTH'!

In the latest issue of Salford Council's propaganda mag, Life in Salford, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, has denounced the "myth" that "developers don't contribute money to the city. It's simply not true" he says.

Yes, they do contribute some money but they also avoid millions of pounds in payments and provision of affordable housing. Indeed, Salford Star analysis shows that developers avoided almost £5.5million in payments last year, as the Mayor only tells half the truth.
