It’s been an impressive first season in the Football League for Salford City, with the Ammies in contention to challenge for a play-off spot in the fourth tier. 

They’re currently sat tenth in the League Two standings, but are just eight points adrift of seventh-placed Northampton Town with nine league games remaining in this year’s campaign.

The Ammies have won four of their last five matches, which included them booking their spot in the EFL Trophy final at Wembley, where they’re due to take on League One side Portsmouth.

Due to recent events though, that game against Kenny Jackett’s side has been put on hold for the foreseeable future.

But it’s definitely been a season to remember for the Salford City supporters, who will be hoping their side can continue to build on their momentum when they do eventually return to action.

We take a look at TWO Salford City facts that you might not know about!

Find out what they are, below….

They beat Manchester United in a friendly. 

There are well-publicised links between Salford City and Manchester United, with the ‘Class of ’92’ being owners of the League Two club.

But the Ammies beat the Premier League giants 4-1 in a friendly back in November 1992 at Moor Lane.

The Red Devils fielded some promising young players who went on to be worldwide stars such as David Beckham in the defeat for Manchester United.

Local league success

Salford had a number of success stories in the early stages of them being formed.

The Ammies won the Manchester League Premier Division on four occasions, as well as winning the Lancashire FA Amateur Cup three times.

This impressive start to life as a football club was the ideal preparation, as they laid the foundations for the club to become professional later on down the line.
