Masters on board for trip
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.
