Masters in good shape
Football Team GB Over 35 Masters won two matches during a training camp in Marbella.
Paul Linger and Laurence Beck earned them a 2-0 win in the opener. Faithfold pair Daryl Phillips (3) and Paul Lenchner completed a 4-1 win in the second game.
GB manager Darryl Lee said: “It was good preparation for Israel and a building block as part as our preparation. Playing in temperatures of 80 degrees, it was 10 degrees cooler than the Maccabiah will be.
“Our coaching rational is that possession is important. If you can’t keep the ball you can’t win the game.”
Simon Corney and Ben Lewis have dropped out of the original squad with London Maccabi Lions duo Darren Dryer and Daniel Reuben coming in.
Lee said: “We have some very good players and the use of the squad will be critical.”
