Masters on board for trip

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

FOOT­BALL The Mac­cabi Masters Foot­ball League tour re­turns to Is­rael for the eighth time in Novem­ber, af­ter a two-year ab­sence, with the largest del­e­ga­tion for a one-team squad since the tours be­gan in 2002.

Play­ers from seven dif­fer­ent clubs, in­clud­ing seven play­ers from EDRS, have reg­is­tered. They will be joined by a num­ber of sup­port­ers mak­ing a to­tal del­e­ga­tion of 32.

The MMFL team will be joined by two teams from Ar­gentina and one team from Is­rael play­ing three matches dur­ing the seven-day tour­na­ment.

MMFL chair­man and tour or­gan­iser Stu­art Lustig­man said: “Lit­tle did we know when this tour was first planned in Fe­bru­ary just how sig­nif­i­cant our visit would be, al­though we are no strangers to trou­bled times as our early trips took place dur­ing the sec­ond In­tifada.”

The trip in­cludes a visit to the Knes­set, the Is­rael Res­cue Cen­tre and the Is­rael Sports Cen­tre for the Dis­abled.
