Pietà Hotspurs won the Under-15 Knock-Out Competition, organised by the Youth Football Association after beating Birkirkara 1-0, in front of a sizeable crowd at the Luxol Stadium. Clyde Bouvet scored the all-important goal of the match in the second half.
After the game, Youth FA President Fr. Hilary Tagliaferro, assisted by Vice President Robert Attard and General Secretary Joe Micallef, presented the trophies and mementos to both sets of players.
This was Pietà’s third success in the Under-15 Knock-Out Competition and thus completed the double for this season, after achieving the same feat in the 2012/13 season.
