Young Israelis claim squash silver

Israel’s under-15 team finished runners-up at a competition in Gerona, Spain.

Having knocked out the favourites and no. 1 seeds France in an earlier round, the young Israeli players drew praise, from all teams and their managers, for their sportsmanship and tenacity in a competition where they succumbed to England in the finals.
