It's very recognizable, unless they re-spray it and put new registration plates on it, hope it's recovered first.

Manchester Chat / Rugby team's disability minibus stolen
« Last post by celeste on Yesterday at 21:12:22 »

A learning disability rugby league team has pulled out of a major weekend festival after its minibus was stolen.

The Salford Red Devils Foundation learning disability team was due to appear at the Super League's Magic Weekend festival at Anfield in Liverpool on Sunday.

They were due appear in a league game at half time of the clash between St Helens v Castleford Tigers.

The club said players were "really disappointed" they will not be playing.

A club statement said it had CCTV footage of the vehicle being taken from its AJ Bell stadium at 00:20 BST on Wednesday.

The theft has been reported to Greater Manchester Police.

Appeal for help

The club said the theft had "greatly restricted" its work in the community and appealed for help with alternative transport or funding for a new minibus.

Neil Blackburn, manager of Salford Red Devils Foundation, said playing at Anfield just hours after the Salford Red Devils first team in the Super League's new Community Integrated Care Super League was a "fantastic opportunity" for the recently-formed squad.

But he added: "Unfortunately this is just one of many instances where our activity has been greatly restricted since the minibus was stolen."

He said the minibus helped with educational programmes as well as transporting equipment and they had since been left "scrambling around in cars".

The foundation has set up an online crowdfunding appeal.

Mr Blackburn said: "Any assistance would be hugely appreciated. We just want to keep providing for our community."

Starting at the top of page,thought I was "Back to the Future."
Records came tumbling down like dominos today. CITY World class. How lucky to have Pep.

We might have Pep for longer than the MSM seem to think. The press are assuming he'll pack his bags when his contract ends or when City pick up the Champions League, whichever comes sooner. But where would he go? There's hardly any point in returning to the scene of past glories and Real Madrid is out of the question for obvious reasons. So that leaves France or Italy, and I honestly can't see either of them being an attractive proposition to a coach with Guardiola's pedigree. And in any case, why would he want to go? He is creating what might turn out to be the best football team in the entire history of the game, a team who play football in the style he has always dreamed of and with an impeccable collective professional attitude. The fulfilment of all his ambitions, in other words. And, let's face it, nothing feels quite so nice as winning, does it?

It wouldn't be at all surprising if the dirty tricks campaign being orchestrated by Liverpool, UEFA, their buddies in the Fake News Media, and possibly a few other suspects had to carry on for an awful lot longer yet. Fingers crossed!

Sharon Davies raised some points this week,"it is no coincidence that the top three 800 mtr. runners have the same condition. Women do not have to have a medical now and in the UK the fact of internal Testes would have been picked up by ultrasound and the child would have been brought up as a boy.
