Manchester 250: Thursday 13 September

Sven gets cocky and Fergie doesn’t see the funny side

Published on September 13th 2007.

A GANG CONFERENCE in Wythenshawe will be held today to tackle inner-city issues. Over 40 people from Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle, Birmingham and Nottingham gangs will discuss gun and gang culture at the event. The two day conference has been organised by anti-gun group CARISMA, mentor project United Estates of Wythenshawe (UEW) and social research charity, the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.

SIR ALEX FERGUSON’S assaulter, Kevin Reynolds, 43, has admitted punching the Manchester United boss in the groin at Euston station on Monday. Defence lawyer Adeola Olowu has said her client was joking around as he thought Sir Alex was a look-alike. Magistrate Daphne Wickham said: “I do not think Sir Alex Ferguson saw this as a joke.”

SALFORD will sponsor the BBC Philharmonic orchestra for £20m. Council leader John Merry said: “Many prominent British cities have an orchestra they can call their own and now Salford is joining that list.” Others feel the money could be better spent elsewhere. Kevin Ainsworth, of the Seedley South Residents Association, said: “Instead of spending money investing in music they should spend it on improving people's homes and lives.”

CITY BOSS, Sven Goran Eriksson, has told rival Premiership clubs United and Chelsea to beware. Eriksson believes his revamped Blues are a threat to the league. He said: “A few years ago the champions in England may have lost only one or two games in the season but I think this season no one will go through losing only once or twice; it is much tougher.”
