Lustigman, 73, hangs up his boots after 59 years of Maccabi football

Maccabi stalwart Stuart Lustigman has confirmed his retirement from football.

    Lustigman, 73, announced he was hanging up his boots after his final game for Brady Maccabi B against EHRS Stonegrove in the MMFL second division.

    Having joined Kingsheath United in the MSFL in 1968, Lustigman stands down with an unblemished career – he has never been booked or sent off in 59 years of AJY and Maccabi football.

    Lustigman said: “Notwithstanding my age, it’s actually upcoming knee surgery that has forced my retirement but I take with me wonderful memories of so many players that I have played with and coached.

    “Of course, I will continue to remain involved  as chairman of the Masters League and thank all those players and referees with whom I shared so may happy times.”
