Athlone ADSL U-14s claim Tony Bajada Challenge Cup

The Hamrun Nursery together with the Hamrun Local Council has once again organised the Tony Bajada Memorial during the Easter holidays. The eleventh edition proved to be another success for the nursery with a good number of teams and over 300 boys and girls participating in the event. The tournament which was held at the Victor Tedesco Stadium was sponsored by Cochlear, Colgate and Gatorade.

Participation was open for the 2006, 2002, 2000 and 1998 categories. No winners were declared in the 2006, 2002 and 2000 categories in accordance with Youth FA guidelines. Mementos and products from the tournament sponsors were presented to all the participants.

In the 1998 category, Athlone ADSL showed class of their own and won four matches and lost one. In the final, they won against Mosta who were undefeated up to that stage. Athlone ADSL also won the Top-Scoring Award and the Fair Play Award. Hamrun Mayor Vince Bonello and Youth FA representative Mr Charles Bugeja attended the final.

During the trophy presentation, Hamrun nursery secretary Noel Debattista thanked all the participating teams, the Bajada family, Hamrun Spartans FC Executive Committee, Hamrun Sports Complex plc, The Youth FA, the Amateur, Youth and Grassroots Committee and the sponsors of the event for their support.
