SUPER SALFORD MAKE IT EIGHT IN A ROW UNBEATEN

With a patched up team Salford City battled to a scoreless draw that could easily have been a victory against Lancaster City. It makes Salford unbeaten in the last eight games.

Now, with planning permission granted for a new clubhouse, and a new youth team about to be set up, Salford City look set to fly for the future…

With eight injuries, getting any sort of a team onto the field is becoming harder and harder for Salford City. Assistant manager Danny Jones, forced to come on as sub in the top victory at Harrogate the other night, was drafted in from the start today; while only one player, Andy Gamble, was sat on the bench and he was injured too.

Despite the odds being stacked heavily against the Ammies, those on the field battled to an incredibly creditable draw against a Lancaster team two places above in the league. And it could easily have been a narrow victory when, right near the end of the game, Adam Morning was clean through on goal, only for the Lancaster keeper to thwart his goalbound shot.

Meanwhile at the other end, with time running out, Andy Robertson pulled off a breathtaking save pushing onto the bar a Lancaster shot that was arrowing into the top right hand corner of the net.

This game might have ended in a 0-0 draw but there was plenty of excitement at both ends. The first half saw Roberston make his first top save of the day, while Jack Redshaw and Adam Morning both had shots that whistled close past the post.

In the second half, while Lancaster had two good shouts for denied penalties, Rhodri Giggs rose at the far post to head an Adam Morning cross just wide. Salford's walking wounded more than deserved this draw which keeps us in 11th place where the team finished last season. With three games left and nine points at stake, Salford will be hoping to win all of them to move up a couple of places for the club's highest ever finish in its history.

Remaining home games at Moor Lane:
Sat 23rd April: Prescot Cables 3pm
Friday 29th April: Chorley 3pm

• Last week Salford City's new clubhouse (see here for more details) was given planning approval by Salford City Council and now the fight is on to get finance to build it. Anyone can help with the fundraising by buying a glass brick for £15 from the Salford City souvenir shop at Moor Lane.

Meanwhile, this week, the club also announced a link up with Salford City College to help young players at the college and to allow the club to enter the FA Youth Cup next season. It's part of a whole youth development programme at Salford City in which the club is also launching teams from under 7s to under 16s for next season.

"We believe we're moving in the right direction and want as many Salford people as possible getting behind the club" says Salford City Chairman Darren Quick "The tie-up with the college strengthens our links with young people in the area and we are sure to get a few decent players heading our way."

If anyone is interested in coaching, becoming a volunteer, or know of any players who would love the opportunity to play for Salford City FC next season, please contact Martin Cooper, head of youth development, on 07872 487706 or by email at salfordcityfc@hotmail.co.uk
