THE GREAT ESCAPE contd…

Star date: 28th March 2009

Salford City 1 Bamber Bridge 0

`We're staying up…we're staying up…Salford's staying up!'

That was the chant of jubilant Salford City supporters as the Ammies recorded a first home win of the season to keep the impossible dream alive. In the process, Salford City has cut the points gap at the bottom of the Unibond League Div One from 15 points at one time, to a mere 7 points.  With seven games remaining the Great Escape is on…

Read on…


Salford City ran out onto the Moor Lane pitch to the sound of the theme tune from The Great Escape, and came off the pitch to a standing ovation and the  same music ringing around the ground.  Now everyone can believe.

From the kick off, with an icy wind behind them City's players tore into Bamber Bridge with neat passing football that produced a flurry of goal bound shots in the first ten minutes alone. It was no surprise when, after 12 minutes, Martyn Andrews stroked City into the lead following a cross from Ian Fitzpatrick.  And there was more goalmouth action to come as front men Stuart Rudd and Steve Foster kept the Bamber goalie and defence busy for the remainder of the half.

After the break, Bamber came back into the game but the nearest they came was a deflected shot from outside the area that kissed the crossbar.  And City could have doubled the lead with Foster narrowly missing a good chance inside the box. In the end it didn't matter as Salford recorded a well deserved first home win of the season...

Yes, we celebrated as if we'd won the cup…and why not?  From now on, every game is a cup final – and the dream is alive and kicking.

The next home game is a massive six pointer against Rossendale United on Tues 7th April - get down to Moor Lane and cheer on City's survival!

We'll be there too... Who needs the Premier League when you can get such excitement in the Unibond Division One North????

Thanks for the match report. It was only my second Salford City match (only moved from Chorlton recently) and they've won both. Now adopted them as my non-league team and will be there as often as I can. I understand from reading the Star's previous stories that a lot of the players are new but they looked the part. Strike pairing a real threat while the whole team threw themselves into tackles. Beat Rossendale and the Great Escape is on. Looking forward to it.

EVEN SALFORD MP IS BEING DISSED BY PENDLETON TOGETHER ON DANGEROUS CLADDING ISSUE

Star date: 23rd October 2018

PENDLETON TOGETHER TOTAL LACK OF ACCOUNTABILITY

The lack of accountability surrounding Pendleton Together, which manages the dangerously cladded blocks owned by Salford City Council, is becoming critical.

Even Salford and Eccles MP Rebecca Long-Bailey is getting dissed by the company when trying to set up meetings, while an email from the Salford Star asking to see the Trident report on safety in the blocks has been ignored, despite the Salford City Mayor stating that its conclusions, at least, should be released.

Here, the suspended chair of Malus Court TARA, Graeme Langton, reports on a Parliamentary reception he attended last week with the Salford MP...

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL THREAT LETTER CAUSES ELDERLY CITIZENS ANGUISH

CALLOUS COUNCIL TAX LETTER SCARES ELDERLY 

Hundreds, and possibly thousands, of letters have been sent by Salford City Council to elderly people threatening them with the loss of their single person Council Tax discount as it states 'Records show that multiple adults are living at your address', even though they are widows and widowers. The letter tells them to fill in an online form 'within the next 14 days' or the discount will be cancelled.

"It's not fair to be treating your senior citizens in this way, it's just callous" says Jill Royle, whose 92 year old non-computer literate mother became totally agitated on receiving the letter "Salford Council needs to know how much anguish it's caused."

AFTER TWO DAY STRIKE HOSPITAL WORKERS WIN NHS PAY PARITY

"We stuck together and we won!" Vicky, cleaner at Royal Bolton Hospital

Bolton Royal Hospital workers are celebrating a massive victory after taking two days of strike action over pay parity earlier this month, supported by Salford UNISON and many other trade unionists.

The workers, who include cleaners, catering staff, porters and security staff, are employed by Bolton NHS Trust's subsidiary company iFM, doing the same jobs as other NHS workers but were offered pay at a lesser rate. Now they have won an increase in line with other NHS workers, backdated to last April.

TONNES OF SALFORD RECYCLING PAPER REJECTED AS PEOPLE PUT WRONG STUFF IN BLUE BINS

DIRTY NAPPIES AND PLASTIC BAGS PUT IN BLUE BINS

Tonnes of Salford's paper and card recycling collections are being rejected as people put the wrong stuff in blue bins, including dirty nappies, plastic bags, polystyrene packing and even electrical items.

Now Recycle for Greater Manchester has teamed up with Salford City Council to launch a What's In The Box? campaign to remind residents that only newspapers, magazines, greeting cards, paper wrapping paper, cardboard boxes and junk mail and envelopes can be put in the blue bins.
