  1. I wasn't expecting to be offered a new deal before the Playoff Final, but I guess it makes sense since my contract was running down and they never expected me to make the Playoffs anyway. I've signed a new 1 year deal. I'm still on £700 p/w but this will increase to around £800 p/w if we are promoted. The 50 percent get out clause is still in there.
  2. Cool to see the attendance got broken even though they've been in League 2 before. Forest Green Rovers beat Portsmouth 5-3 on aggregate in their Semi Final and so we will face them at Wembley. I'd hoped for Portsmouth as Forest Green are the better side, but we will give it our all either way. We haven't beaten Forest Green this season though, with a 2-2 home draw and a 6-3 loss away from home. We did win at Wembley last season though, so hopefully we can continue our good record there.
  3. 93rd minute: James with the goal-kick for Salford. Surely the referee will blow now... he has! It's over! Salford are on their way to Wembley!
  4. 85th minute: Sainsbury running clear for Salford. He's got Barnett ahead of him, he's found him, Barnett surely to finish the game... oh and how has he missed that?! He's skied it! That would've put the game beyond any doubt.
  5. 68th minute: There's a corner at the other end now. Turl to curl in it...West heads it away easily but hang on?! What's happened here?! The referee is pointing to the spot. He must've seen some pushing and shoving because he's given a penalty to Wrexham! Oh that's a big call! Adam Hart isn't happy about that one on the touchline... Thorne with the penalty. If he scores this then Wrexham have 20 minutes to grab 2 more goals. It's Thorne...he sends the keeper the wrong way! It's Salford 1-2 (4-2) Wrexham. Game on!
  6. 65th minute: Salford have got a corner. It's Clackstone to take it on the left hand side. Clackstone with a nice ball in...Davis heads it across goal...BULLOCK IS THERE! BULLOCK FOR SALFORD!!! IT'S SALFORD 1-1 WREXHAM (4-1) AND THAT SURELY PUTS THE GAME BEYOND WREXHAM! They've got 25 minutes to get 3 goals.
  7. 54th minute: Hope hoofs the ball forward for Wrexham. They're trying to get another one here. If they can get a 2nd soon you'd have to fancy them to go on and get a 3rd. Hope puts the ball's that man Turl that will get to it.... OH AND HE'S HIT THE BAR! SO UNLUCKY FOR WREXHAM THERE!
  8. 46th minute: The referee has blown. 45 minutes over. Wrexham still need 2 goals here but they have to believe they have the momentum now, so perhaps they can do it as Salford haven't really had any clear cut chances themselves yet.
  9. 38th minute: Wrexham have got a corner. It's Turl to take it. It's a hopeful ball into the box...AND HOPE IS THERE! HE'S PUT IT IN THE NET! IT'S SALFORD 0-1 (3-1) WREXHAM on the day. A big goal for Wrexham just before half-time.
  10. 23 minutes: Hayward on the edge of the Salford box, he finds Thorne in the middle just outside it, Turl to his right coming into the box, it's to Turl... Turl plays the 1-2 back to THORNE...OH AND HE'S HIT THE POST! IT CLATTERS THE POST AND GOES OUT FOR A GOAL KICK. A big chance for Wrexham early on!
  11. We've named an unchanged side for the return leg at home. I've gone for a counter attacking approach as Wrexham need 3 goals without reply to beat us. I think they could get 1 or 2 or maybe 3, but I feel confident enough that we will get at least 1 goal.
  12. 91st minute: Hope perhaps with one last throw of the dice for Wrexham. He's gonna hit it long here... BUT THAT'S IT! The referee calls an end to the game and it's WREXHAM 0-3 SALFORD CITY. What a performance from Adam Hart's men.
  13. 81st minute: Hope still hoping for Wrexham. If he can pick out a pass he might put Thorne through on goal, he hits it up for Thorne to run onto it... it's Thorne against James...oh and James makes the save from close range! In truth it's a really poor shot as he's hit it right at the keeper there, if he'd aimed anywhere else it surely would have gone in.
  14. 67th minute: Brown on the left hand byline, he's just making his way into the Wrexham half, Sainsbury ahead of him, Brown hits a long ball and finds him...Sainsbury running into the box from the left hand side and he's got Davis running into the middle, Davis is unmarked...Sainsbury finds him...AND DAVIS SLOTS IT HOME! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?! IT'S WREXHAM 0-3 SALFORD CITY!
  15. 51st minute: Hope in the middle of Salford's half on the ball for Wrexham. He has to hope that they can get back into this game now. Hope out to the left to Jones, but Sinnott intercepts it and hits the ball...but oh dear it's cannoned off of Jones and it's gone straight into the's fallen straight to Thorne...THORNE SURELY....OH AND HOW DID THAT NOT GO IN. It looked like he had the keeper beat but somehow Thorne doesn't capitalise on a defensive mistake there.
