Mor­ri­son re­vamped

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

FOOT­BALL The for­mat for next sea­son’s Peter Mor­ri­son Tro­phy has been changed to al­low teams in the lower di­vi­sions a greater chance to progress to the lat­ter stages.

The tour­na­ment, which was won by Hendon United Sports Club A last sea­son, had seen teams from the north and south kept apart un­til the lat­ter stages, but will now be open from the first round. The changes will also see 14 teams – 10 MGBSFL and four from the north - re­ceive byes from the first round.

A spokesman for the com­pe­ti­tion said: “The rea­son be­hind this change is to make the com­pe­ti­tion more at­trac­tive and to en­sure that more teams who are not at the top of the tree have a chance of pro­gress­ing.”

The first round draw will be made at the MGBSFL pre-sea­son coun­cil meet­ing on Septem­ber 4, three days be­fore the start of the sea­son.
