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.”
