RHODRI GIGGS INSPIRES SUPER SALFORD CITY

Salford City 4 Durham City 0

Just three hours before kick off tonight Rhodri Giggs was named as the new manager of Salford City, following chairman Darren Quick's decision to stand down from the post.

Under new command the Ammies wasted no time in destroying Durham, with Rhodri Giggs capping off his night with a stunning free kick from well outside the penalty area.

After seven straight defeats Salford City chairman Darren Quick today stood down as manager, and Rhodri Giggs has been handed the job on a month's trial basis.

Talking to the Salford Star after Giggs notched his first victory – a 4-0 demolition of Durham – Darren explained that he never intended to take on the manager's job long term and that the club had always been looking for a permanent replacement.

Darren Quick was overwhelmingly the fans' choice to be manager at the end of last season following a run of stunning victories that catapulted the Ammies from the relegation spots to eleventh in the table after he'd taken on the role mid-season. Tonight he explained that his aim was to keep that side together, which he'd achieved…

"We started the season with some good wins against Prescott Cables and Chorley in the FA Cup, and gave Northwich Victoria a game in the Cup too but since then the wheels have come off" he said "Rhodri has always expressed an interest in becoming manager here so we're giving him a chance with my best wishes. He certainly seems to have inspired the team tonight."

Indeed, Salford City stormed to their first victory in weeks, demolishing Durham City with Rhodri Giggs himself scoring with a stunning free kick from well outside the area to  open up a two-nil lead after 58 minutes.

From the start Salford completely dominated the game and, unlike in recent weeks, got some luck, as the Durham City 'keeper made a hash of a long range Colin Quirk shot just before half time that flew off his hands and into the net.

After that superb Giggs free kick which doubled the score, Salford made it three when Sam Freakes, on as a sub for Ben Beresford, hit a free kick from the right hand edge of the box which eluded everyone and swung into the net. Steve Foster completed the scoring with 15 minutes left to round off  Salford City's most comprehensive victory of the season. By the end it could have easily been five or six but the points see the Ammies shoot up the league away from the relegation zone.

A great start for Rhodri Giggs. And with Salford travelling to rock bottom Leigh on Saturday the signs of recovery are looking well good.

Andrew has been predicting on the Salford City Fans Forum that the Ammies would win 4-0 for every single game over the past two seasons – and tonight his prediction was right for the first time ever. The whole of Salford, we're sure, would like to congratulate Andrew on his remarkable Paul the Octopus style psychic powers)
