WARRINGTON TOWN SALFORD CITY
 

Star date: 25th April 2011

Warrington Town 1 Salford City 2

SALFORD NOW UNDEFEATED IN TEN!

Salford City extended their unbeaten run to ten games with vistory over Warrington Town, to kind of avenge Salford City Reds 60-0 defeat by Warrington Wolves the other day.

As the Ammies move up into tenth place in the Evo-Stik Division One North, fans are wondering what might have been had there not been that horrid winter break.

Match report and photos here…


So it was onto that netherworld of roundabout city Warrington for Salford's final away game of the season. Salford Cityunbeaten in nine games and in 11th place. Warrington Town - sixth in the league, just outside the playoffs.

For Salford City it was a revenge mission, Warrington Wolves rugby league team having stuffed Salford City Reds 60-0 just a few days ago. For Warrington it was about taking a crumb of comfort as the whole town, it seemed, were at the rugby stadium hoping the Wolves clinched the Championship.

In the event, it was rather easy for Salford, going two up after just half an hour. First Mark Ayres headed in superbly from a corner to open the scoring, then Jack Redshaw, latching on to an awful Warrington throw-in which bounced over the keeper's head, scrambled in the second while he was being dragged to the floor by the unfortunate goalie.

2-0 and Salford looked to be cruising to victory. But three minutes after Redshaw's goal, Mark Ayres whipped the feet of a Warrington attacker and Chris Thompson pulled a goal back from the penalty spot. Half time: 2-1.

The second half saw Salford fans with a roof on the terrace behind the goal and as the chanting volume turned up the team responded, first Jack Redshaw whistling a shot just past the post, and then Redshaw again outpacing the Warrington defence, nipping inside the box and having his final shot only saved by the keeper's legs.

Warrington responded with a coupe of shots that hit the corner flag and a few passing planes. But, much as their nasty midfielders tried to wind Salford players up, the ploy didn't work and Salford finished with eleven players on the field and the revenge victory their efforts truly deserved.

If only the season could start now Salford City would be looking at promotion with bells on - Gareth Thomas bang on biting form, Matty Cross ruling at the back and Jack Redshaw scaring the life out of defences up front.

What a shame there's only one game left – promotion chasing Chorley at Moor Lane this Friday 29th April kick off 3pm. If Salford City win this, the tenth place they hold now would be secure and would guarantee the highest ever finish in the club's history.

Star date: 21st June 2018

COUNCIL SPENT £5,750 ON MIPIM PR IN SOUTH OF FRANCE

Salford Council spent almost £10,000 on the jaunt to the MIPIM property orgy in Cannes. A newly published contract register shows that, as well as the £4,022 costs for the City Mayor and two officers to go to the South of France paid by unknown private sector companies, the Council also spent £5,750 on marketing and PR for MIPIM.

The contract register also shows the Council is spending £9,500 on a 'Salford Story' press consultant, £118,000 on its failed 'digital community hub', over £14,000 on a 'leadership programme' and, er, £25,000 on milk and bread?

Despite musical protests and petitions, the National Grid is adamant that the Salford gas holders, made famous in the Dirty Old Town anthem, will be demolished.

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

Star date: 18th June 2018

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.
