DURHAM CITY SALFORD CITY

Durham City 6 Salford City 2

SALFORD SICKS

One of Salford City's worst results of the season followed one their best performances of the season at Chester the other night. Was it the loss of top scorer Steve Foster to Chorley, was it the plastic pitch or was the team too busy laughing at Durham's cart-horse?

Oh how we laughed before the kick off at the sight of a cart-horse gently grazing outside Durham City's ground… `Is that your sub? Your centre forward? Surely not your winger?'… By the end of this match, the cart-horse seemed to be laughing at us.

How did Salford City manage this? Durham had seven shots on target and scored six goals. Six horror goals. Virtually all mistakes and mix ups in the Salford defence on a nasty windy plastic pitch.

2-0 down at half time, it got to 5-0 before the Ammies even looked like pulling a goal back, Jack Redshaw finishing well for his first Salford City goal. A comeback? No chance. Soon after it was 6-1, with Martyn Andrews making it a more respectable 6-2 in the final minute as the ball hit the bar and the post before he finally headed in.

With top scorer Steve Foster having been nicked by Chorley in mid-week for their promotion push, it might have had an unsettling affect on the team. But no-one expected this, after the fine, unlucky performance at Chester the other night.

Next up is Mossley at Moor Lane on Tuesday night – and hopefully a decent result to get Salford City back on track for a highest ever finish.

*** As another piece of Salford's heritage - Salford Central Mission - became a pile of rubble last week, we learned that this was the impressive building where Salford City FC was founded. Unfortunately, it's now impossible to make a pilgrimage there - see Here's Your Heritage Son (click here)

TENSION, 'BULLYING' AND POLITICAL DOG FIGHTING IN LOCAL ELECTION CONTEST

While the local election campaigns around Salford are pretty mild at the moment, in the Claremont ward it's all kicking off, with the LibDem candidate, Stef Lorenz, accusing Labour Party supporters of 'bullying', and the authorities of complicity.

Stef has been blocked from putting up posters in the local Height Library for a jumble sale and art auction in aid of restoring the old Height Youth Club, been forced to stand down as chair of that campaign and has been met with a volley of political abuse on social media. What's going on?
