We’ll do GB proud, says Sawdaye
FOOTBALL NICOLE Sawdaye believes Team Maccabi GB’s Junior under-18 Girls team is equipped to feature strongly at the Maccabiah Games.
Sawdaye will manage the squad, working closely with assistant Liam Stein in an event dominated by the USA over recent years.
The MGB squad features a number of players with international experience from the JCC Maccabi Games in the USA.
Sawdaye said: “We are incredibly excited by the calibre of our squad and the dedication that all the girls have shown to the team.
“We have by far one of the strongest girls’ football teams to date. There’s a wealth of experience, having competed at different international tournaments, while some are involved with the organisation for the first time.”
Stein commented: “The team are working incredibly hard to prepare for the tournament and it is our aim to go to Israel and impress on the football pitch”. He went on to say: “Our aim is to give every girl the best possible all-round experience of Israel”.
