Football gala raises £2,000

TEAMS from Manchester (north and south) and Glasgow travelled to Leeds for a football gala on Sunday.

More than 260 youngsters, from U-7 to U-14, participated in the Leeds Maccabi event, helping to raise more than £2,000.

The organising committee was Ben Lyons, Charlie Rosenberg, Bryan Gothelf, Elliot Landy, Sarah Barron and Donna Pullan.

“To have so many Jewish kids from different cities coming together to play football and build friendships is very special,” said Leeds Maccabi co-chairman Ben.

“The feedback we’ve received from our visitors has been incredible and we’re already excited about next year’s gala.”

Manchester Maccabi U-8, managed by Lee Benjamin and Martin Lever, won the Leeds Gala after a penalty shoot-out.

The team, which plays in the Salford and District Football League, won the Salford Supplementary Cup last month.
