Lustigman and Caplin pushing for gold again

- BY JC REPORTER

FUTSAL ADAM Lustigman is confident Maccabi GB’s U18 boys’ futsal squad can retain their title at the forthcomin­g European Maccabi Games in Hungary.

Lustigman, who led MGB to gold at the 2015 EMG in Berlin, has been putting the finishing touches to preparatio­ns together with jointmanag­er Phil Caplin.

The squad has been training for several months, as well as playing friendly matches, and Lustigman says they cannot wait to get started.

“We have extremely talented players, some with invaluable internatio­nal Games experience, and there is an interestin­g mix of characters both on and off the court. We know the countries that will provide the biggest challenges at the Games but the squad will be mentally, physically and tactically prepared. As reigning European U18 champions we are confident of further success.”

Caplin said: “Adam and I will use our past experience­s to relay to players and parents the pride of representi­ng MGB at an internatio­nal event, both on the playing front and cultural aspects as well. Spending pre-camp together is a time to reflect on our Jewish identity as well as further our team bonding before the competitio­n begins.”

SQUAD: Toby Anthony, Harry Caplin, Josh Davidson, Sammy Garcia, Joey Gold, Eytan Millan, Josh Morris, Brandon Myers, Max Schulberg, Raphy Simons.

Managers: Phil Caplin, Adam Lustigman, Coach: Tamas Gynei
