9 Hampstead Players Named in Maccabia Great Britain Women's Team

The Maccabia Games, sometimes referred to as the Jewish Olympics, is the third largest sporting event in the world, behind the Olympics and the Commonwealth Games.

In summer 2009 Team GB will take a women's football squad to the games for the very first time.

Unbelievably, 9 Hampstead girls have made it into the squad of 16 that have been selected to represent their country. Ellie, Kate, Dani, Claire, Jamie, Sheri, Talia, Aimee and Judith. As well as one ex-Hampstead girl Tanya Willman.

Everyone at HWFC wish the girls the best of luck this summer.
