Former Mosta president passes away

Former Mosta FC president Charles Abela passed away on Thursday morning following a short illness.

Abela was first elected as Mosta FC president in 1999 and returned to the post in 2005, quitting last year. Under his guidance, Mosta had managed to secure promotion to the Premier League twice, narrowly missing a third one after losing a decider against Qormi two years ago.

The funeral will be held on Saturday at the Mosta Rotunda at 08:30.

Lord grant him eternal rest
