Masters League to tour Israel again

    The Maccabi Masters Football League Tour returns to Israel for the eighth time in November, after a two-year absence, with the largest delegation for a one team squad since the tours began in 2002.

    Players from seven different clubs, including seven players from EDRS, have registered and they will be joined by supporters making a total tour party of 32 people.

    The MMFL team will be joined by two teams from Argentina and one team from Israel playing three matches during the seven-day tournament.

    MMFL chairman and tour organiser Stuart Lustigman said: "Little did we know when this tour was first planned in February, just how significant our visit would be although we are no strangers to troubled times as our early trips took place during the second Intifada.

    "However, it's just amazing how many players have participated in so many tours and I am proud to reveal that the average age of the squad is 56. In fact, it's quite remarkable and could never have happened if the MMFL had not been formed back in 1999.

    "As always there is a full programme aside from the football which also includes a visit to the Knesset, the Israel Rescue Centre and the Israel Sports Centre for the Disabled. I am sure that demonstrating solidarity with Israel is foremost in the players' minds but a win over Argentina is not far behind."
