SALFORD CITY CAMMELL LAIRD
 

Star date: 7th November 2010 

RHODRI GIGGS' TANGERINE ARMY WIN AGAIN!

Salford City 1 Cammell Laird 0

Rhodri Giggs' Salford revolution is now in full swing as the Ammies stormed past Cammell Laird to make it six wins out of six, to take the tangerine army within four points of the play off places in the Evo-Stik First Division North.

Who needs FC United when you can have super Salford City?

SALFORD CITY 1 CAMMELL LAIRD 0

Who needs `we'll never move the kick off times' FC United and their boring FA Cup run (because we're not jealous, honestly) when here in Salford, at Salford's biggest club, which actually plays at a stadium in Salford, you can watch the Rhodri Giggs revolution in full swing?

Steve Foster hit another wonder goal in the 74th minute to seal the victory that keeps Salford City in 8th position but means that the club is now just four points off the play off places.

The 1-0 scoreline didn't do much for City's goal difference but the floodgates would surely have opened up had a certain man with a whistle and the brain of a rocking horse not intervened.

Every week, it seems, we have to report `the worst referee-ing decision you'll ever see' but this really was `the worst referee-ing decision you'll ever see. Ever. Forever. And A Day'…

Salford City's Jordan Goodeve had already had a shot blocked on the line and Simon Woodford had already hit the Cammell's crossbar, when Rhodri Giggson for the injured Cayne Hanley – was put clean through…

…As Giggs bore down on goal the Cammell's 'keeper, Phil Palethorpe, came out to the edge of the area and his outstretched arm flattened Giggs as Salford's new player manager pushed the ball past him. The ref awarded a free kick just outside the area and everyone waited for the inevitable red card to be produced. It was yellow. Like the ref.

A shocking decision, which wasn't forgotten for the rest of the match, as both the clown in black and the Cammell's 'keeper were mocked at every opportunity. Yes, Christmas had come early at Moor Lane, with two panto villains to boooooooo. At half time, somehow the score remained 0-0.

In the second half Salford were virtually in complete control but, despite Adam Morning's wing trickery the opening goal just wouldn't come. And when it did, in the 74th minute, it was well worth waiting for. Morning slipped a ball to Steve Foster who had three Cammells in front of him just inside the penalty area. The Foz jinked the ball onto his right foot and curled a screamer into the top corner for his millionth and one goal of the season. 1-0 to Salford.

A few minutes later it could have been two, as Foster hit a shot from outside the area that Palethorpe – who shouldn't have even been on the pitch – tipped around the post. Deep into injury time it should have been two, as Adam Morning, a constant threat to the Cammells, was finally flattened in the area as he dribbled past a zillion defenders.

Steve Foster hit the resulting penalty hard – and high – and wide – and when the Salford Star got a call from an Eccles resident last night (see Comments) reporting a UFO gliding over his house we reassured him it was probably Fozzy's spot kick…

"My left foot sank in the wet as I was about to hit it" said Fozzy later "I asked them to sand the area before the game." But surely that would have given the advantage to the Cammells? 

So 1-0 it was to Salford City as the Giggs revolution goes on. With two really hard away games coming up – Skem away on Tuesday, followed by Witton Albion away next Saturday – the Ammies' play off prospects will get a real test over the next week. But in the meantime Salford fans are really enjoying themselves. And we're not jealous of FC United. Not one bit. The only proper Salford team are going full steam for promotion.

SALFORD COUNCIL REFUSES TO REVEAL WHO PAID FOR CITY MAYOR TRIP TO SOUTH OF FRANCE

Star date: 19th June 2018

COUNCIL BLOCKS FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST ON £4,000 MIPIM TRIP

Salford City Council has refused to answer a Salford Star Freedom of Information request on which private company paid the £4,022 costs for City Mayor Paul Dennett and two staff to go to the South of France for the MIPIM property event.

The Council states that "the commercial interests of the Council outweigh that of the public interest in disclosure". The Salford Star is to appeal the decision.

DEVASTATING SURVEY OF NORTH WEST COUNCIL WORKERS SHOWS LOCAL SERVICES COLLAPSING

Star date: 18th June 2018

OVER 80% OF COUNCIL WORKERS HAVE NO CONFIDENCE IN SERVICES AND ALMOST 50% THINKING OF LEAVING THEIR JOBS

A survey of almost 1,500 local council workers in the North West reveals that 81% have no confidence in the future of local services, 49% are thinking of leaving their jobs, 54% believe their council no longer delivers quality services, and 45% think that their employer doesn't make the right decisions for the public.

The other results of the survey by UNISON to coincide with its local government conference make equally depressing reading, as the union states that "Vital local services in the North West are collapsing".

SALFORD TIME OUT FOR CARERS

TRIPS, CAKES, MASSAGE, ADVICE AND CHAT AS CARERS TAKE TIME OUT

"I was absolutely weary...I needed to get out of the house" Ernie

Caring for a loved one is indeed a labour of love but it can also be life consuming and draining. So a group called Time Out For Carers is making a difference, running weekly sessions where escapism is the order of the day.

There's free massages, trips out, advice on allowances, tea and coffee and cakes, but, most importantly, relaxed informal chats with carers who are all in the same position.
