The Gozo Under 15 team, which has just earned promotion from Section B to Section A of the Malta Youth FA recently had a wonderful opportunity to participate in an Easter Tournament in Turin. The Tournament was held in Nichelino between 7th and 12th April and featured A.C. Torino, G.S. Don Bosco Nichelino, U.S. San Giorgio and Gozo.
The group was hosted in Nichelino, Turin by G.S. Don Bosco – founded by the late Fr. Joe Galea of Fontana, Gozo while the Nichelino Local Council ensured that everything went on smoothly without any hitch.The Gozitan Group also had Cultural tours to Turin City Centre, Milan and visits to Sports venues of Juventus Stadium and Bardonecchia / Sestriere Olympic Village.
The successful event came as a result of team performance and discipline and was crowned by victory in the final of the Tournament. In the semi-final the Gozo boys had the better of A.C.Torino on penalties and in the Final defeated the G.S. Don Bosco 3 – 0. Next July the Boys from G.S. Don Bosco, Nichelino will also reciprocate the initiative with a visit to Gozo, hosted by the Gozo FA.
The Gozo FA would like to thank all those involved and congratulate all Players and Officials for the success of this event away from home on foreign soil.
