Salford City 0 Chorley 2

SALFORD MISS OUT ON TOP TEN FINISH ON GOAL DIFFERENCE

Salford City missed the top ten spot that would have guaranteed a highest ever finish only on goal difference. But after this first defeat in eleven games the team can hold their heads high.

Big, ugly, well organised Chorley managed to out muscle Salford City and take the points that ensures them home advantage for the play-offs. Salford City, meanwhile, can only look forward to next season knowing that, after three years in the Evo-Stik First Division North, they're no-one's pushovers. Only goal difference stopped Salford getting a top ten finish and the highest place in the club's history.

It's been a season of consolidation, and might have been better but for a great run of victories being disrupted by the winter snow and ice, suspensions and injuries. While other clubs, such as Chorley, have vast resources behind their team, Salford have struggled to find eleven fit players for the last month.

The league is not an even playing field (particularly at Ossett and Harrogate Railway but that's just their pitch) exemplified by Chorley's nicking of star Salford City forward, Steve Foster, a couple of months ago. And so it was that Fozzy lined up against Salford City yesterday in a black and white shirt, and got light heartedly booed every time he touched the ball.

However it wasn't Steve Foster that made the difference – it was the horrid giants littered all over the Chorley team who won the physical battles against Salford's many youth and work experience players.

Unlike in fairy tales the big bad guys won the day, and their fans went back to Chorley in their horse and carts with the Salford supporters' cheery refrain `We'll see you all next year' ringing in their ears. Chorley might be in the play-offs but Skelmersdale remain everyone's favourites to get promotion.

The real fun was to be had yesterday in the club house after the game, with Matty Cross winning the fans Player of the Season Award for outstanding consistency, and Darren Hockenhall winning player manager, Rhodri Giggs' award for Player of the Season. 

Andy Robertson, Rhodri Giggs, Darren Hockenhall and Martyn Andrews were also presented with awards by Chairman Darren Quick for clocking up over 100 appearances for Salford City.

Now it's only 70 days to the start of the first pre-season friendly…

GOVERNMENT BLOCKS SALFORD CLADDING REPLACEMENT

Star date: 21st September 2018

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL CAN'T ACCESS £400MILLION GOVERNMENT CLADDING FUND

Salford City Council has been told by the Government that it can't access the £400million public fund to help with the cost of replacing dangerous cladding on the nine Pendleton blocks because it's part of a PFI.

Nor will the Government allow the Council to loan Pendleton Together Operating Limited money from its £25million fund set aside for the cladding. In short, it's a complete mess.

HARROP FOLD HEAD SLAMS ‘PERSONAL VENDETTA’ OF SALFORD CITY COUNCIL

Star date: 19th September 2018

DREW POVEY ACCUSES SALFORD COUNCIL OF 'HEAVY HANDED' 'VENDETTA'

"I'm speaking up for myself but also all the leaders who have been in touch to say the same happened to them #TakeAStand..." Drew Povey

Drew Povey, the Executive Head of Harrop Fold in Little Hulton, has resigned from his post, slamming Salford Council's "heavy handed approach" while investigating 'administrative errors' at the school and accusing it of a "personal vendetta".

In an open letter to the school's governors, Drew Povey writes that he refuses to walk away from the school with a settlement and accept a gagging clause.  So he's gone public...to #TakeAStand.
