SALFORD CITY BAMBER BRIDGE
 

Star date: 13th February 2011

SALFORD'S GOAL OF THE SEASON

Salford City 1 Bamber Bridge 2

Wayne who? The player's name on everyone's lips at Moor Lane was Tommy Turner who hit a glorious volley to open the scoring for Salford City, after a fabulous flowing move by the Ammies…

After Salford City supporters had watched Wayne Rooney's goal for Man United which should really have been ruled out for dangerous kicking, they were treated to a proper special goal of their own.

Half an hour had passed at Moor Lane when a goal of stunning quality unpicked the deadlock. Salford broke out of defence with a couple of swift passes that released Russell Headley on the right wing. A one-two with Steve Foster allowed Headley space to go for the by-line and cross low for Tommy Turner to hit a sweet volley past the bemused Bamber keeper. 1-0 to Salford – but no tv cameras there to capture the moment. So Rooney will grab the back pages.

A few minutes later Turner almost repeated the trick, this time from a corner on the left, but his volley sailed just over the bar with the goal gaping. Surely it was just a matter of time before the floodgates opened and Salford took the points?

Unfortunately, the team seemed to be still admiring that opening goal at the start of the second half when Bamber equalised with a header from one of their string bean giants up front. Indeed throughout the half Salford offered little attacking play, while Bamber, almost equally inept, managed to hit a few shots that had to cleared off the line.

With stand-in goalie Josh Ollerenshaw clearly troubled by a hand injury, Bamber were throwing in crosses, and, with a few minutes remaining, scored with another header to sneak the victory.

Not a good day for Salford City – so it's on to the big derby at Trafford on Wednesday night where the Ammies will be looking for three points to get the play off charge back on track.
