So Steve Foster, made captain for the day, is on his way home after hitting a hat trick of sublime quality. But he hasn't got the match ball. Why not? Where is it?

"Still in the top corner of the net" Steve smirks. And don't think anyone would bet against it. His third goal, hit with a curl and swirl and some venom from the edge of the area completed a stunning hat trick that powers Salford up to 11th in the Evo-Stik North.

Yet AFC Fylde had arrived with great hopes of hammering the Ammies, given that a win would have put them 2nd in the league. With their pensioner following willing them on, Fylde took the lead after only eight minutes - a corner, a flick on and a header at the far post. They looked confident, neat on the ball and thrilled their fans so much, a granny actually got an old wooden rattle out of her bag and attempted to give it a full whirl – but gave up half way through. The excitement was just too much.

Never mind, within minutes parity was restored when Steve Foster, put through by Leor Sidle, slammed the ball past the Fylde keeper for his first goal.

Salford goalie Andy Roberston had to make one of his flying saves to stop Fylde regaining the lead, and Foster went close with a header but it stayed 1-1 at half time.

In the second half Fylde hit the bar but Salford went in front ten minutes from the end when Rhodri Giggs passed to Steve Foster, and his exquisite lob had the Fylde keeper turning his back, trying to punch and basically tying himself in knots as the ball sailed over him into the net.

But Foster wasn't finished and he completed his hat trick with that stunning curler from the left hand edge of the box. The ball probably still is in the top corner of the net.

A fantastic performance from Salford – and quality hat trick from Steve Foster.

Rhodri Giggs' tangerine army march on…

'COMMUNISM IS FOR THE CHILDREN' SAYS SUBVERSIVE PEPPA PIG

Bizarre graffiti art has appeared near Salford Central Station depicting two delighted looking Peppa Pigs by the slogan 'Communism is for the children'. The art has led to much amusement and bemusement but is probably related to China banning the popular kids' cartoon.

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

Star date: 17th July 2018

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.
