Following Saturday’s postponed game against Tamworth, Salford City donated the uneaten food to a homeless centre.

Over 150 pies, vats of soup and some cheesecakes were left and instead of being thrown to waste, managers Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley went to drop the food off with the homeless centre. The club’s pitch was inspected initially at 10:00 GMT and looked playable but the match referee decided it was too frozen just 90 minutes before it was due to start.

Salford City has a list of homeless charities to contact in case it has leftover food but this was the first time it has supplied food to one of the charities.

“We wanted to share some of the good feeling that we have at the club,” said Johnson.

Hendrix Lancaster, co-founder of Coffee4Craig, said it was very grateful for the windfall, adding; “People are very, very generous.”
