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.

PEPPA PIG COMMUNISM GRAFFITI GOES SUBVERSIVE IN SALFORD

Star date: 18th July 2018

'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

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.
