Masters ready to shine

A Maccabi Masters Football League rep team will play an ex-professional and celebrity Arsenal XI in a fundraising match on June 15. Money raised from the game at Edgware Town FC, will go to Action Duchenne — the main UK charity for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and Treehouse — the national charity for autism education. Players must be over 25 and raise £350.

Brian Green, joint-chair of Junior and Youth football, said: “His extensive coaching experience and contacts within the Jewish youth clubs make him a very welcome addition to our managerial team.”
