More Salford thrills as Class Of ’92: Out Of Their League returns this August

The BBC’s inside look at the rise and rise of Salford City FC is returning to BBC One later this month.

Salford’s meteoric double promotion to the National League North is under the spotlight, as well as their record-breaking FA Cup run, beating Notts County before facing heartbreak in a second round play-off.

3.5 million people watched live on BBC Two in November last year as Salford City knocked out the League Two side before coming a cropper against Hartlepool Town.

The season also saw some of the Class of ‘92 take a more hand off role to football ownership, with Gary Neville taking charge of Valencia for four months along with brother Phil as assistant.

With the struggle to sign new players and their star striker Danny Webber preparing for retirement, the club need to dig deep to put the performance on the pitch that the fans now expect.

Off the pitch, managers Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley, are planning the latter’s wedding, as well as facing off against Blyth Spartans, AFC Workington and non-league rivals Darlington for promotion to the Vanarama North.

The Quakers visit to Moor Lane this year was a tense affair, with a large police presence and tempers flaring on and off the pitch as Darlington ran out 4-3 winners.

The second series of Class Of ’92: Out Of Their League is set to broadcast on Thursday 25 August at 9pm.
