The Under 19’s season got underway at the weekend as Maccabi Tel Aviv ‘Shahar’ beat Hapoel Kfar Sava in the opening league match. Last night, four members of the U-19’s team were part of the first team squad for the Toto Cup match against Hapoel Jerusalem which took place at Bloomfield. Three of the four – Oscar Gloukh (17), Ofek Sasson (17), Roy Revivo (18) made substitute appearances while Bar Lin was an unused sub.

Glough was introduced in the 61st minute of the match, Sasson (70) and Revivo (79) were all given a chance to play on the big stage.
Gloukh could have celebrated his senior debut in style as he took a vital penalty, but the 17-year-old had his spot kick saved by Jerusalem’s keeper, a fact which would leave him with a bitter sweet experience.
