Salford City F.C.
Salford City Football Club is a professional association football club based in Salford, Greater Manchester, England. It competes in the National League, the fifth tier of the English football league system; the club was founded in 1940. In 2014 it was taken over by former Manchester United players Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt, who each own 10% of the club, with businessman Peter Lim owning the rest. David Beckham purchased a 10% share from Peter Lim on 23 January 2019. Since 2014, the club has had three promotions in four seasons; the club was founded in 1940 as Salford Central. It competed in local leagues until 1963, when it was promoted to the Manchester Football League and changed its name to Salford Amateurs. Nicknamed "the Ammies", the club won the Lancashire Amateur Cup in 1973, 1975 and 1977 and the Manchester Premier Cup in 1978 and 1979. Salford moved into its present ground, Moor Lane, in 1978 and following restoration of the ground, the club entered the Cheshire County League in 1980, which two years amalgamated with the Lancashire Combination to form the North West Counties Football League.
The club adopted its current name of Salford City in 1989. In 1990, it returned to the final of the Manchester Premier Cup. By 1992, Salford were competing in Division One of the North West Counties Football League; the club made another appearance in the final of the Manchester Premier Cup in 2002, this time losing to Ashton United. In the 2004–05 season, the club reached the third round of the FA Vase. In 2005–06, it reached the third qualifying round of the FA Cup and won the North West Counties League Cup, beating Cammell Laird in the final. In the 2007–08 season Salford, under the management of Gary Fellows, finished second in Division One of the North West Counties League and were thus promoted to Division One North of the Northern Premier League, the eighth tier of the English football league system; the club suffered a difficult start in the Northern Premier League, losing six of their first seven matches, which resulted in Fellows being relieved of his managerial duties in October 2008 and former Bridlington Town and Stockport Sports boss Ashley Berry taking over.
After only two months, with results still not improving, Berry left and was replaced by former Flixton boss Paul Wright. Due to a pre-existing suspension from the Football Association, Wright was unable to start work until March, so his assistant manager, Neil Hall, deputised for the first two months of 2009. By the time Wright took up his position, Salford were languishing at the bottom of the league, having achieved one win and a total of eight points from their first 26 games, leaving them 15 points adrift from safety. An unlikely 5–3 away win at Lancaster City prompted a remarkable change in fortune, with the club going on to achieve nine wins and a draw from their last fourteen games, clinching survival on the final day of the season with a 5–2 win away at Garforth Town; the 2009–10 season saw strong performances in the qualifying rounds of the FA Cup and the FA Trophy, but the club continued to struggle in the league. In February 2010, having lost four of their last five home matches, Salford parted company with Wright.
Rather than appoint a permanent successor, chairman Darren Quick took the unusual step of taking on the role of caretaker manager himself for the remainder of the season. Under Quick, the team again enjoyed a strong finish to the season, taking 36 points from the remaining games and finishing eleventh in the table. Despite the 2009–10 season's heroics, the team again struggled at the start of the 2010–11 season, Darren Quick decided to end his tenure as caretaker manager, replacing himself with Rhodri Giggs who would act as player-manager alongside experienced coach Danny Jones. Results improved under Giggs with team finishing the season in 12th position; the club began well in 2011–12 with hopes of a playoff push, however a poor run of form at the start of 2012, combined with the frequent departure of the club's top players, resulted in a mid-table finish. After the final home game of the season, Giggs announced he was resigning from the post with immediate effect. In May 2012, the club appointed ex-professional Darren Sheridan as the new manager.
The 2012–13 season started well in the league, the club enjoyed a local derby in the preliminary round of the FA Cup against FC United of Manchester. Over 1300 fans were in attendance at Moor Lane to watch the Ammies narrowly lose in a five-goal thriller. Sheridan's tenure at the club lasted only 8 months though, he resigned from the club in January 2013 after a review of the club's budget; the club appointed Andy Heald as caretaker manager, before announcing his appointment on a full-time basis a month later. Under Heald's leadership, Salford finished a disappointing sixteenth place in the Premier League Division North, but enjoyed a good cup run by reaching the final of the Manchester Premier Cup where they faced Mossley at Edgeley Park. Despite a rousing late comeback to level the score at 2–2, Mossley triumphed 4–2 in the resulting penalty shoot-out. At the end of the season and his assistant Chris Thompson left the club by mutual consent due to business and family commitments. Ahead of the 2013–14 campaign, the club appointed Barry Massay and Phil Power as joint managers and Salford based businesswoman Karen Baird took over as chairman from the long-serving Quick.
The new management team got off to a strong start and were unbeaten after the first six games of the season, form began to dip and in October 2013 the decision was made to reshuffle the management team with Power assuming sole managerial responsibility and Massay dropping down to an assistant managerial role, bef

The Salford Hundred is one of the subdivisions of the historic county of Lancashire, in Northern England. Its name alludes to its judicial centre being the township of Salford, it is known as the Royal Manor of Salford and the Salford wapentake. The Manor or Hundred of Salford had Anglo-Saxon origins; the Domesday Book recorded. Salford was recorded as part of the territory of Inter Ripam et Mersam or "Between Ribble and Mersey", it was included with the information about Cheshire, though it cannot be said to have been part of Cheshire; the area became a subdivision of the County Palatine of Lancaster on its creation in 1182. In spite of its incorporation into Lancashire, Salford Hundred retained a separate jurisdiction for the administration of justice, known as the Court Leet, View of frankpledge, Court of Record of our Sovereign Lord the King for his Hundred or Wapentake of Salford. Exceptionally for hundred courts, Salford survived until the 19th century; the lordship of Salford passed with the Duchy of Lancaster to the Crown, a serjeant or bailiff was appointed to administer the hundred on the king's behalf.
In 1436 the office of Hereditary Steward of the Wapentake of Salfordshire was granted to Sir Robert Molyneux of Sefton. The office was held by Sir Robert's successors, the Earls of Sefton until 1972; the Portmote of the Borough of Salford merged with the Hundred Court in the 17th century, the latter body took over the administrative business of the manorial borough. In 1792 police commissioners were established in Manchester and Salford, the Hundred Court was left with few powers. By 1828 the activities of the court consisted of the following: A twice-yearly meeting of jury-men chose the borough reeve of Salford, along with two constables, a dog-muzzler, ale-taster and inspectors of flesh and fish for the town; the meeting appointed constables in those townships that did not possess their own court leet. In these townships it possessed powers to deal with noxious smells and smoke from factories, clearing obstructions of the highway, fencing of roads, foul ditches and enforcement of weights and measures.
A three-weekly court for the recovery of debts of less than forty shillings. These were held every third Thursday by one of three deputy stewards appointed by the Earl of Sefton. In 1846 the court was reformed to become a Court of Record with its jurisdiction extended to debts not exceeding fifty pounds in value. In 1838 Manchester was granted its own court of record; the two courts were merged as the Salford Hundred Court of Record in 1869 by the Salford Hundred Court of Record Act 1868. The court had jurisdiction in personal actions only; the municipal boroughs of Oldham, Bolton and Rochdale successively had their areas exempted from the jurisdiction of the Hundred Court by Order in Council or private Act of Parliament between 1878 and 1893. In 1910 a committee was appointed by the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster to report on the practices and jurisdiction of the court, whether it was "of benefit to the parties for whose use it was intended". One member of the three-man committee recommended the abolition of the court which had "little but its age to justify its continuance", while the majority called for amending legislation.
Accordingly, the Salford Hundred Court of Record Act 1911 was passed to restrict the area of the court to the county court areas of Manchester and Salford and to alter its procedures and costs. Forty years the court was again referred to a review committee; the committee's report recommended that the court be retained as it provided "a popular and speedy remedy for a large number of litigants in the area". In 1956 the court's area was extended to encompass the entire County Borough of Stockport, deemed to belong to the County of Lancashire and the Hundred of Salford for the purposes of assizes, quarter sessions and licensing; the Court of Record for the Hundred of Salford was abolished by section 43 of the Courts Act 1971. The last hereditary steward, Hugh Molyneux, 7th Earl of Sefton died on 13 April 1972. Separate places of detention were maintained for the hundred: the New Bailey Prison in Salford, replaced by Strangeways Prison in 1868; the area it occupied, 212,170 acres, corresponds loosely to the modern metropolitan county of Greater Manchester, though excludes those parts from the historic county boundaries of Cheshire, as well as most of that that forms the modern Metropolitan Borough of Wigan.
Its area extended into territory north of what is now Greater Manchester, including parts of Rossendale and Todmorden. The parish of Manchester formed part of Salfordshire, it has been suggested that a Manchester-shire hundred was not favoured over one centred at Salford because Manchester had been ravaged as part of the Viking occupation. The parish of Rochdale, in Salfordshire, included the chapelry of Saddleworth from the historic county boundaries of Yorkshire. Salfordshire comprised several townships during its history; these were not static, but fragmented with the establishment of daughter churches and chapels and increases in population. The parish of Prestwich-cum-Oldham included the parishes of Bury and Radcliffe, the parish of Manchester included the parish of Ashton-under-Lyne; the township of Hundersfield was one of Rochdale parish's four original townships, but was itself split into four. Prestwich-cum-Oldham was split into two separate parishes of Prestwich an
City of Salford
The City of Salford known as Salford, is a city and metropolitan borough of Greater Manchester, extending west to include the towns of Eccles, Swinton, Little Hulton, Irlam. The city has a population of 245,600, is administered from the Salford Civic Centre in Swinton; the city's boundaries, set by the Local Government Act 1972, include five former local government districts. It is bounded on the south east by the River Irwell, which forms part of its boundary with Manchester to the east, by the Manchester Ship Canal to the south, which forms its boundary with Trafford; the metropolitan boroughs of Wigan and Bury lie to the west and north respectively. Some parts of the city, which lies directly west of Manchester, are industrialised and densely populated, but around one third of the city consists of rural open space; the western half of the city stretches across Chat Moss. Salford has a history of human activity stretching back to the Neolithic age. There are over 250 listed buildings in the city, including Salford Cathedral, three Scheduled Ancient Monuments.
With the Industrial Revolution and its neighbours grew along with its textile industry. The former County Borough of Salford was granted city status in 1926; the city and its industries experienced decline throughout much of the 20th century. Since the 1990s, parts of Salford have undergone regeneration Salford Quays, home of BBC North and Granada Television, the area around the University of Salford. Salford Red Devils are a professional rugby league club in Super League and Salford City F. C. are a professional football club in the National League. Old Trafford, the home of Manchester United, in Trafford, is opposite Salford Quays. Although the metropolitan borough of the City of Salford was a 20th-century creation, the area has a long history of human activity, extending back to the Stone Age. Neolithic flint arrow-heads and tools, evidence of Bronze Age activity has been discovered in Salford; the northerly section of Watling Street, a Roman road from Manchester via Bury to Ribchester, passes through the city.
In 1142, a monastic cell dedicated to St. Leonard was established in Kersal; the 12th century hundred of Salford was created as Salfordshire in the historic county of Lancashire and survived until the 19th century, when it was replaced by one of the first county boroughs in the country. Salford became a free borough in about 1230, when it was granted a charter as a free borough by the Earl Ranulph of Chester; the cell in Kersal was sold in 1540 during the Dissolution of the Monasteries. A 16th-century manor house, called Kersal Cell, was built on the site of the priory. In the English Civil War between King Charles I and parliament, Salford was Royalist. Salford was noted as Jacobite territory. During the Industrial Revolution, Salford grew as a result of the textile industry. Although Salford experienced an increase in population, it was overshadowed by the dominance of Manchester and did not evolve as a commercial centre in the same way. On 15 September 1830, Eccles was site of the world's first railway accident.
During a stop in Eccles to take on water, William Huskisson, Member of Parliament for Liverpool, had his leg crushed by Stephenson's Rocket. Although Huskisson was taken to Eccles for treatment he died of his injuries; the six-foot-tall Oglala Sioux tribesman, "Surrounded By the Enemy", died here from a bronchial infection at age twenty-two in 1887 during a tour of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show and was buried at Brompton Cemetery. In 1894, the Manchester Ship Canal was opened. Along the route of the canal, it was necessary to create an aqueduct carrying the Bridgewater Canal over the Ship Canal; the Barton Swing Aqueduct, designed by Sir Edward Leader Williams, is 100 metres long and weighs 1,450 metric tons. At the start of the 20th century, Salford began to decline due to competition from outside the UK. A survey in 1931 concluded. Salford was granted city status in 1926. During World War II, Salford Docks were bombed. In the decades following the Second World War there was a significant economic and population decline in Salford.
In 1961 a small part of Eccles was added to the city. On 1 April 1974, the City and County Borough of Salford was abolished under the Local Government Act 1972, was replaced by the metropolitan borough of City of Salford, one of ten local government districts in the new metropolitan county of Greater Manchester; the city status of the new district was confirmed by additional letters patent issued on the same day. Since the early 1990s, the decline has slowed. Prior to the metropolitan borough's creation, the name Salford for the new local government district courted controversy. Salford was "thought second-class by those in Eccles", who preferred the new name "Irwell" for the district. A councillor for the City and County Borough of Salford objected to this suggestion, stating this label was nothing but "a dirty stinking river"

Salfords SAL-fudz) is a village in the borough of Reigate and Banstead in Surrey, England. It lies 3 miles south of Redhill on the A23 London to Brighton road; the village is within the civil parish of Salfords and Sidlow which covers a population of 3,069, has a parish council. Salfords means "willow-tree ford" from Old English sealh/salh "willow" and ford "ford; the name was recorded Selefrid in 1193. This is similar to the derivation of Greater Manchester; the village has its own 20th century church, Christ The King, primary school, cricket club, some shops, cafes, a social club, a tanning salon, a number of restaurants and a take away. Salfords Stream can cause flooding in the autumn and winter months; the southern boundary is marked by the Burstow stream. Both are minor; the only buildings old enough to be listed structures in the village are two adjoining houses on Brighton Road and The Mill House Hotel on the Salfords Stream. The village once boasted a wooden watermill with two sluice gates next to the Mill House Hotel.
It produced breakfast cereals in the early twentieth century. By the 1950s it was defunct and has since been dismantled and washed away. Salfords made the national news in January 2008 when a farmer named Robert Fidler built a personal home at Honeycrock Farm similar in style to a Tudor castle and disguised it with hay bales and tarpaulin for four years in an attempt to avoid planning permission from Surrey County Council. Surrey Police applied for planning permission in 2010 for permission to build a 30-cell custody suite at the IO business centre to replace the existing facility at Reigate; this was unpopular with the residents who packed out two meetings with Surrey Police in the local village hall to air their concerns over increases in crime and traffic, resulting in the first meeting being postponed to a larger venue. Surrey Police continued with the planning application despite the overwhelming opposition of the community, but the application was subsequently refused by Reigate and Banstead Council in June 2010.
Surrey Police announced in December. Subsequently the Planning Inspectorate decided to ignore the wishes of both the local community and the council and have granted permission to Surrey Police to build the facility to a revised design; until the 1970s Salfords was part of Horley and with its own Victorian Chapel Church, owing its existence to the construction of the A23 road. The original trackway passed just to the east, on the other side of what is now the London to Brighton railway, dated as pre medieval; this trackway came from Redhill, passing in front of the Royal Earlswood Hospital, through Whitebushes and crossing the stream/river'Sal' at Dean Farm, Salfords. It ran in front of the former Monotype Corporation site towards the Horley gasometer, passed the moated Thunderfield Castle on'Harolds Lea' and reached the south coast near Brighton. In the 1870s a state school was built on the fork between the London Road and Pendleton Road on Petridge Common; the school consisted of four classrooms three.
The head teacher was located upstairs above the cloakrooms. In World War II two air raid shelters were built on opposite sides of the long tapering playground. In the mid-1950s the "Salfords County Primary School" started to expand and relocated to Copsleigh Avenue; the railway station was built in 1915 to enable workers access to the Monotype Corporation factory. Today it is served by London Bridge/London Victoria to Horsham trains. On the main road Hall & Co, the dominant building materials supplier in the south east of England had their regional maintenance depot, used in WWII to repair war tanks. Salfords Cricket Club is a village cricket club; the club runs two Saturday League sides in a Sunday friendly side. The club host a "Cricket Week" of mid-week games each July, a tour every August; the club now play off Woodhatch Road.
