Futsal starlets targeting Maccabiah glory
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
