SALFORD CITY OSSETT ALBION
 

Star date: 2nd October 2010 

FA Trophy Qualifying Round

Ossett Albion 4 Salford City 1

No disgrace as Salford City battle with 10 men against the referee and a vertigo inducing pitch.

And guess what the prize was in the half time raffle?

`Er… It's just a Mickey Mouse Cup…It's just a Mickey Mouse Cup…It's just a Mickey Mouse Cup…'

Even Ossett's infamous bellowing cows (see here) decided to stay away from this FA Trophy encounter that saw a much improved Salford City performance, despite the depressing scoreline which means the Ammies have shipped 19 goals in the last four games.

Ossett opened the scoring after nine minutes, a forward following in after debut keeper Luke Bradley had made a good diving save. Thereafter though, it was all Salford pressure.

First a Steve Foster header forced a save from the Ossett goalie, then Ben Beresford dribbled through three defenders but couldn't quite get the finish his skill deserved. And the ex Man City man was unlucky again a few minutes later when he got a foot to the ball in a goalmouth scramble which the keeper just managed to block. Steve Foster went close with a volley too but the goal just wouldn't come. Half time: Ossett 1 Salford City 0.

And the prize for Ossett Albion's half time raffle? A mixed grill. Serious. No wonder the cows were scarce this week.

The second half was fairly even, unlike the pitch (see here), and Salford were looking good for at least a draw when the referee stepped in and ruined things, just like the last time Salford were here a few weeks ago.

Another Salford debutant, Colin Buirk, went for a 50-50 ball near the centre circle, the Ossett left back went down like an Apache film extra, and a red card was waved. An Equity card maybe, but a red? Once again Salford were undone by a crap ref.

A few minutes later it was 2-0, an Ossett forward sweeping in after a cross caught out the defence, and on 67 minutes it was 3-0, a header at the far post. Salford brought on yet another debutant, Leor Sidle, who added purpose and skill to the forward line, and it was his cross that skimmed across the goalmouth allowing Steve Foster to slide in to make it 3-1. The next goal was crucial to the outcome but it was Ossett who put the game well beyond ten men Salford with a fourth goal near the end.

So Salford, despite continuing one horrendous run of bad results, were this time unlucky. But not as unlucky as the Ossett cows – very quiet and obviously in mourning for the mixed grill raffle prize.

Next up: Tuesday 5th October Durham City @ Moor Lane. Kick off: 7:45pm £7

SALFORD QUAYS DEVELOPER TO AVOID £1MILLION PAYMENT WHILE NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROVIDED

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
