Salford City gain ground grading
Salford City have announced that they have been awarded the Category B grading for their Moor Lane stadium.
A club statement said: "We were informed by letter today that Moor Lane has been awarded Category B grading - the standard required in order to compete at National League North level. It has been a huge task to redevelop Moor Lane safely and quickly, staging games at the same time. Ongoing work should ensure that the A grade should be achievable when it becomes necessary."
It added "We'd like to offer a big thank-you to all those involved with the redevelopment project - a fine achievement with very tight deadlines to meet."
The news signals a continued development of the club after they announced last month that they will become professional next season.
