Minute book entry from the Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM), held at the Cathedral Road Youth Centre in Cardiff, on Sunday, 1 June 1969 - 'Maccabi' referring to a Jewish Organisation with its mission to "Promote Jewish Identity through Sport" [source: http://www.maccabi.com.au/NSW/Page/335/About-Maccabi-NSW/Maccabi-History.cfm].

The individual entries in the book primarily follow the formula of: date, members present, agenda, minutes, correspondence, the treasurer's' report, matches and elections. However, there are variations as the entries continue over the years, with more pressing matters taking priority. For this entry, behaviour of the manager of the club Mr Leslie Felman was discussed, and the overall meeting concluded that Mr Felman had, for no apparent reason, struck the Referee and used abusive language in reference to the Referee. Felman himself insisted that the Referee threatened him before he struck the first blow. But he did promise to never use this type of behaviour again. The question of Mr G. Whitcoop was raised, and it was decided that he should be suspended for the 1st match of the season because of his bad behaviour on the field of play, resulting in him being sent off.

The Maccabi Union Great Britain is the more commonly used shorter name of the Union of Maccabi Associations in Great Britain. Similarly to its counterparts across the globe, it exists to promote the active participation in sports and education of young Jewish men and women, in order to enhance their Jewish identity, values and commitment to the community [source: https://aim25.com/cgi-bin/vcdf/detail coll_id=14836&inst_id=118&nv1=search&nv2=].

In 1969, Stanley Soffa and Adrian Freedman travelled to London to submit an application, so their Cardiff Football Club would be allowed to join the Maccabi Southern Football League - it was accepted. The team finished 3rd in the 1970/71 season and were promoted, but at the annual general meeting there was discussion about joining the Cardiff Sunday League, which had been founded by a group of individuals (not Jewish) who got together in late August 1970. After a hard struggle with the City Council and the South Wales Football Association, they were later given permission to commence matches in early October 1970 [source: Cardiff Maccabi Football Club. Doc].
