Super Salem earns Flixton a point

    Stuart Delmonte conceded that a draw was a “fair result” after he saw his AFC Flixton side held 1-1 by Universal All Stars in the Accountants League Division One.

    Playing against a side boasting two ex-FC United players, among other semi-professionals, Flixton will have been pleased with a point, even if they had chances to come away with all three.

    The side, playing only their second competitive game in non-Jewish football, went ahead after seven minutes through a Yaniv Salem effort, the player’s second in as many games. It was a lead Flixton held onto through to half time in what was a very tight affair.

    The game continued in a very similar manner in the second half with both sides cancelling each other out until Universal All Stars found an equaliser, after Flixton put through their own net.

    With both sides looking for a winner it was Flixton who came closest, hitting the woodwork twice in the last 15 minutes. Jonny Alexander first saw a cross-shot hit the bar, before last week’s hat-trick hero Rob Jacobs also saw an effort come back off the woodwork.

    Had either of these efforts gone in though it would perhaps have been a touch harsh on the All-Stars, with Delmonte praising the opposition as a "very good footballing side".

    In the end both sides had to settle for a point apiece, which leaves Flixton unbeaten in their opening two games of the campaign.
