Season Preview: Salford City

30 July 2019

We continue our 2019/20 season preview by featuring EFL debutants, Salford City -

Nickname : The Ammies

Stadium : The Peninsula Stadium

Capacity : 5,108

Round Trip From The Moss Rose : 64.2 miles

Last Season : 3rd (National League)

The Class of '92 finally realised their dream of seeing Salford City in the EFL last May, as they secured another glorious promotion with a play-off final victory over AFC Fylde.

The Ammies have bolstered their ranks with some high-profile signings over the summer and as such, they will be looking to take the division by storm in what will be an historic season for the club.

With the backing of their illustrious owners, there is no doubt that Salford should prove to be one of the sides to watch over the next nine months as their intriguing story continues.


The Gaffer - Graham Alexander

Former Scottish international defender Graham Alexander will be leading The Ammies into the EFL and after a playing career which saw him make over 800 appearances for the likes of Scunthorpe United, Luton Town, Preston North End and Burnley, he certainly won't be found wanting in terms of experience.

Managerially, Alexander has already experienced League Two promotion glory with Fleetwood Town in 2015, before guiding Scunthorpe into the League One play-offs two years later.

Appointed Salford manager in May 2018, Alexander masterminded a third place finish last term and followed this up with a play-off final victory over AFC Fylde last May.
