JOINT-MANAGERS Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley celebrated their 150th game in charge of the club with a 4-0 win over North Ferriby United at The Peninsula Stadium.

Four second half goals from Jack Redshaw gave Salford a sixth consecutive league win, and maintained Salford’s seven point lead over Harrogate Town at the top of the National League North.

It was also the duo’s 81st league win which works out at a 63% win rate in league matches, and a 60% win rate overall.

It’s not the time for complacency though, says Morley, as Salford continue their push for a third promotion in four years under the pair:

“150 games in and the hard work starts now. 

“We’ve got ourselves in a position where we sit top of the league with 23 games to go so work starts now to maintain that top spot. 

“That’s something we look forward to doing and that’s where the, not so much pressure and expectation comes in, but that’s what we’re about, we love a challenge and that’ll be the challenge; to maintain that top position throughout the season.”


Since Johnson and Morley first arrived at Salford in January 2015 they have led the club to new heights both at league and cup level.

Now with the club developing rapidly off the pitch, Johnson hopes that there are still more levels to be reached.

“We feel proud that we’ve been here for as long as we have, and done what we have done.

“To get to 150 games, it feels like we’ve only been here a couple of minutes, but we’ve had some good times and hopefully it’s only a fraction of what we’re going to be here.”
