    Reuben has spent the last 24 years at Maccabi London Lions, following spells at Kinnor, Brady Maccabi and Wingate & Finchley. He has represented MGB at seven international games, winning five medals in the process. Reuben was joint-manager for the Masters over-45 football squad at last year’s Maccabiah Games in Israel.

    Reuben said: “Maccabi has shaped my life, having represented Jewish clubs for nearly 35 years as either a player or manager. Some of my greatest memories have undoubtedly come from international games, so when the opportunity to work alongside my good friend and former team-mate arose, I felt it was only right that I continued to ‘do my bit’.

    “Danny and I are excited to be working with terrific managers and coaches to ensure we give the athletes as close to a professional setup as possible.”

    Schindler’s first international games experience with MGB came in the Open Football squad at the 1991 EMG. He has gone on to win four gold medals and represented on 11 occasions, including last summer’s Maccabiah Games as Joint Futsal and Football chair. As a junior he played for Kenton Maccabi before joing Wingate & Finchley FC and he made the switch to London Maccabi Lions in their inaugural year.

    “We are looking forward to what we know will be a successful Games both on and, just as importantly, off the pitch,” said Schindler. “Our managers will be instilling into their squads what it means to represent British Jewry; to play with passion and pride, but to compete surrounded by the Maccabi spirit.

    “However, all the players will equally understand the importance of immersing themselves into the Games and to enjoy everything it has to offer in order to ultimately make memories and friendships that will last a lifetime.”
