I would just like to introduce myself as I am new to te forum so don't bite.
ive become something of a regular down at Salford city over the last two years and have even caught the away day bug. At first I didn't know any of the players or have anyone to travel to the games with but over the course of last season I've managed to get a few friends and family involved and they are also loving non-league football. Last year was fantastic and what a jurney with the run in and was gutted when we got beat at the shay in the playoffs. Went up to the shay earlier that season also and that was a game of two halfs lol but in fairness they were probably the stronger team. I've also made some new friends and seen people that I've not seen in years since my school days meany years ago.
I can't believe how much has changed in the last 12 months with the ground and going full time and the crowds are getting bigger every week it seams. I guess I just like having a local team to go and support and be proud of as I only live 5 mins from the ground.
Welcome goalhanger. To be honest, I wasn’t too down after the Halifax game. We went very close and it could have gone either way. But how could we be disappointed after the season we had?
I started going to Moor Lane a couple of seasons before the takeover and it’s changed beyond all recognition. Back then, we seemed to have a different team every week and about 70 people scattered around. I switched to non league because I thought top flight football had lost its way...and it still has. The trick for Salford, is not to become lost with the rest. Stay as a family club. Never forget where we came from and in fact.....keep that small club mentality with regards to the fans and off pitch stuff.
Hope you enjoy the forum and if you haven’t already, have a go at the prediction league. It may be a bit late to start but last season, one star player came up from the bottom to snatch the title. 😉So it can be done!

Welcome on board and it's good to see another new face posting on here. While our ultimate ambition is the Football League I hope - as Chris P. Bacon says - that we never forget where we've come from and that we retain some of the non-league values and traditions that made so many of us support our local side in the first instance. I'm fortunate in having witnessed both sides of the coin so to speak and am enjoying the ride as much as I ever did.
