GB expect to be in mix for medals, says Lustigman


Adam Lustigman insists Team Maccabi GB under-18 futsal squad can push for a medal at July's European Maccabi Games in Berlin.

A former manager of the Team MGB Masters futsal squad, Lustigman is confident the squad is equipped to make a big statement.

The group includes Danny Stapleton and Josh Tray, who helped Team MGB U16's win silver in the futsal competition at the Maccabiah Games in 2013.

Lustigman said, "Having taken over the squad in December, the boys have worked extremely hard during a tough training and match schedule so far.

"We have some talented players and a strong variety of characters, both on and off the pitch - there's never a dull moment!

"But when it comes down to business their efforts and focus have been outstanding. Although having attended a JCC Maccabi Games in the past, most of them are participating in a European Maccabi Games for the first time and looking forward to experiencing both the playing and cultural aspects of Berlin.

"Having managed the Masters for the past two Games, I'm relying on a bit of blind faith in what to expect from our opponents but the squad will be prepared mentally, physically and tactically when we board the plane and expect to be in the mix for medals."
