The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

FUT­SAL TEAM Maccabi GB have con­firmed their Ju­nior un­der-16 Boys Fut­sal team who will com­pete at the 20th Mac­cabiah Games in Is­rael in July.

Man­aged by ex­pe­ri­enced duo Adam Lustig­man and Philip Caplin, the squad will be look­ing to match the ef­fort of the tri­umphant team in Ber­lin at the 2015 European Maccabi Games.

Lustig­man said: “We have some ex­tremely tal­ented play­ers with a mix­ture of pre­vi­ous fut­sal ex­pe­ri­ence and char­ac­ters both on and off the court.

“When it comes down to busi­ness, their ef­forts, fo­cus and pro­gres­sion have been out­stand­ing.”

As well as weekly train­ing ses­sions, they have been gain­ing ex­pe­ri­ence by test­ing them­selves with a num­ber of friendly matches against de­vel­op­ment squads from Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur and Brent­ford, as well as Escrolla and Gen­e­sis Fut­sal Clubs who play in the Na­tional League.

Ca­plan com­mented: “We know the coun­tries who will pose the big­gest chal­lenge to us but we will be pre­pared men­tally, phys­i­cally and tac­ti­cally to be in the mix of medals.”

SQUAD: Joshua Baum, Ben Fox, Sammy Gar­cia, Joey Gold, Oli Leigh, Jay­den Meranda, Joshua Mor­ris, Joseph Salomon, Rafael Zamet, Harry Caplin. Man­agers: Philip Caplin and Adam Lustig­man CY­CLING
