Hotshot Franks is going nowhere, warns Seligman

May 2, 2014

David Seligman has issued a hands-off warning to MJSL rivals after a second-half double from Jonathan Franks steered HPR into the final of the Harold Feldman Cup.

And after seeing Franks seal the semi-final at Frederick Road, Seligman immediately vowed to wreck Maccabi Manchester 2nds treble bid.

"Jonny is going nowhere," Seligman said. "I know teams like AFC Flixton will be sniffing around him and the likes of Ben Annis and Mark Broady.

"But I assure you they will stay loyal to me and the team."

HPR’s win over Flixton means they face the MJSL champions Maccabi 2nd at Boundary Park on May 11.

Seligman believes his side have the tools to stun Irving Modlin’s side. "Matches against Maccabi have always been competitive in the league and that’s when we have been depleted," he said.

"Now we will be at full-strength and we will be really chomping at the bit. They will be favourites, but there is no reason why we can’t turn them over."
