scor­ing, Har­men’s Joel Al­ter­man said: “In truth, we never looked like los­ing this one al­though in­juries played a big part on the day for Bliz­zard who were forced to change goal­keeper three times.”

Alex Bloch (2) and Os­car Wag­ner in­spired de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons Norstar Lon­don Raiders A to a 3-0 vic­tory over Mac­cabi Lon­don Lions A.

Raiders boss Rob Rich­man com­mented: “We were su­perbly pro­fes­sional to make sure we se­cured the points.

“We de­fended as well as we have done all sea­son and we were clin­i­cal when the chances came our way.

“The games now come thick and fast and we are ex­cited to prop­erly get go­ing with our league cam­paign.”

Ben Ch­er­noff and Josh Orgel helped im­prov­ing Red­bridge Jewish Care B se­cure their first win at the ex­pense of Brix­ton Old Boys.

Avi Moc­ton, Benni Sluckis and Sammy Bar­ron were among the scor­ers as

FOOT­BALL AFC FLIX­TON will join forces with Oakhill Lions for this sea­son’s Pe­ter Mor­ri­son Tro­phy.

The Manch­ester sides have de­cided to amal­ga­mate as they pre­pare to learn their fate ahead of the sec­ond-round draw for the Jewish FA Cup.

Flix­ton have been a force in Manch­ester foot­ball since Stu­art Del­monte and Tony Rosen­berg took over the reins.

But with the num­ber of Jewish play­ers in Manch­ester de­clin­ing, Ac­coun­tants Pre­mier League cham­pi­ons Flix­ton agreed to link-up the stu­dents of MJSL side Oakhill.

Oakhill boss Daniel Rabi­nowitz said: “I re­ceived a pro­posal from Stu­art Del­monte if we would like to form with them for the com­pe­ti­tion.

“It was too good to turn down and it was a very ap­peal­ing op­tion. It works both ways as they don’t have a big se­lec­tion of Jewish play­ers to se­lect from and we will be with­out sev­eral play­ers dur­ing the sea­son.

“So it makes sense and it’s an ex­cit­ing ven­ture.”

It is be­lieved the dual side will be reg­is­tered un­der the name Flix­ton Oakhill.

Del­monte said: “I be­lieve Oakhill will win the MJSL this sea­son. They have brought in some ta­lented young play­ers.”
