Hibernians midfielder Bjorn Kristensen is the BOV Player of the Month for September 2016.
The Maltese international scored the all-important goal in the 93rd minute of Hibernians’ 2-1 victory over Pembroke when he headed home Failla’s free-kick. In the same match, Kristensen set up Hibs’ first when he advanced through the midfield and hit a perfect pass to substitute Varea who slotted past Muscat from an angle.
The Kristensen-Failla combination was also evident earlier in the month in Hibs 3-1 victory over Mosta. Just before the hour, Bjorn Kristensen exploded into the box stunning the defence to head home Failla’s pin-point free-kick.
Marica Ellul, Manager of Bank of Valletta’s Paola Branch presented the BOV Player of the Month trophy for September 2016 to Kristensen on the BOV Dress Down Day in aid of the Pink October Campaign. Kristensen chose ALS Malta to benefit from the donation associated with this award.
Bank of Valletta is a strong advocate of a healthy lifestyle as evidenced in the support of numerous sporting initiatives in Malta and Gozo.
