Exhibition marks St. Patrick FC's hundredth anniversary

St. Patrick FC have set up an exhibition to mark the club’s hundredth anniversary at the Zabbar Local Council Hall. The exhibition, which was set-up by Manuel Gauci, was inaugurated by former president and chairman of the organising committee Alfred Portelli.

President Dr Josie Muscat praised this initiative as it gives a clear image of football in Zabbar over the past hundred years. Mayor Domnic Agius mentioned another initiative by the organising committee – a drawing competition for children attending St. Margaret College Zabbar Primary A.

Present for the inauguration was a player who was a member of the team which won promotion to the First Division for the first time in 1949/50. The player – Fabri – is now 84 years old.

The exhibition is open from Monday to Friday between 10:00 and 13:00 and between 16:00 and 19:00 and on Saturdays and Sundays between 09:00 and noon. The exhibition is open until March 18.

Another activity to mark this anniversary is a reception for former players, coaches, presidents and secretaries which will be held on Friday 16th March. On Sunday 18, a thanksgiving mass will be held and then a commemorative plaque will be unveiled at the club premises.
