GB Junior Cricket squad a family affair

Team Maccabi GB’s Junior Cricket squad will have something of a family feel to it when they battle it out for glory at next month’s Maccabiah Games in Israel.


The father and son team of Philip Mayer and Elliott Mayer will spearhead the group who are all newcomers to the event, which includes another son, Gregory Mayer. The family ties do not end there with Oliver Nathanson competing with the Juniors and father Hilton Nathanson in the Open tournament.

Manager Philip Mayer said: “We have selected a squad full of experience with several players already achieving district or county honours for their age groups.

“With that in mind, we are confident in giving it our all and challenging for a medal position.”

Assistant-manager Elliott Mayer commented: “We are aiming to give each player the best possible journey.

“We are excited to show them the unique sporting, social and cultural elements the Games have to offer where life long memories and friendships are made.
