Opinion: Can Salford City FC win promotion?
- NQ's Mohammed Ahmed looks into whether Salford City FC, funded by the legendary Class of '92, can win promotion into the Football League
- Listen to the ground's atmosphere in full via Mo's audio report:
It would have been unthinkable quite a few years ago. However, now fans are talking about it realistically.
The club has a long history of playing in the lower leagues. To reach the National League, just one league below professional FA football, would be a staggering achievement for this club. Yet, following its recent run of victories, this is becoming an increasing likelihood.
I visited the Salford FC stadium during its national league match against Stalybridge and talked to some of the fans and players about what promotion would mean for them.
Listening to the feel-good atmosphere that surrounds the club and the great enthusiasm of many of its fans, it would not be a surprise if the club was promoted. Salford City appears to have a very bright future ahead of it. The only question is if they are able to keep this up.
