A brilliant performance by the team managed by the class of 92 was the best way to start a weekend of the FA cup. With Gary Neville, Nicky Butt and Paul Scholes watching in the stands, England’s oldest professional team put up a great display to beat Notts County 2-0. Despite the fact they went into the break level, Salford were much the better team. Hardcastle, Hulme, Webber and more missed good chances while County created little down the other end. Then just 18 seconds into the second half, James Poole beat the Notts County left-back with a good bit of skill before crossing into veteran Danny Webber to tap in from two yards. Then with County still looking toothless in attack, sub Richie Allen beat 3 players with a wonderful piece of skill before playing a one-two with Hulme and sliding the ball into the bottom corner. A brilliant goal to cap off a brilliant night.
In the weekends other big upsets, Altrincham beat Barnsley 1-0, Whitehawk won 5-3 against Lincoln, Eastleigh beat Crewe 0-1 and Chesham United surprised Bristol Rovers by beating them 1-0!
