Liverpool-based Haroldeans Football Club have reached the national Peter Morrison Trophy final, which is a competition open to Jewish football clubs across the country.
Haroldeans, who are based in Liverpool but play football in the Manchester Jewish Soccer League, will play in the final on Sunday 6 May at Kings Langley Football Club in Hertfordshire.
Whilst northern teams have won the competition in previous years, Haroldeans’ place in the final makes them the first Manchester Jewish Soccer League side to reach this stage of the competition.
It marks the latest stage in what has been the best-ever season for the club, which was established in 1948 and played in the Northern Jewish Soccer League which included teams from Southport, Manchester and Sheffield. In the 1950s, Haroldeans joined the Manchester Jewish Soccer League.
Haroldeans have a rich history and has become known as one of the most successful Jewish clubs in the country. Last season saw the team win a ninth league title, with over 30 trophies accumulated over the years.
Steven Swinnerton, Senior Football Services Officer at Liverpool FA, said: “Haroldeans are having a fantastic season within the Manchester Jewish Soccer League and Liverpool County FA would like to wish them the best of luck in the final.
“We are proud that Haroldeans are representing the county in this prestigious event.”
