Birkirkara FC’s Raina Giusti has been voted the top individual performer in the BOV Women’s First Division during January 2014. Giusti is an important pawn in coach Johann Scicluna’s team that is vying for its third consecutive championship.
The attacking midfielder created a lot of spark in Birkirkara’s forward line in their 5-1 victory over Raiders. Her brace in the first fourteen minutes of the match set the Stripes on cruising mode for another dominant display. Her performance in this match was topped up with another goal on the 83rd for a personal hat-trick.
In Birkirkara’s top-of-the-table 2-0 victory over Hibernians, Giusti was again spurring her team forward and also set up team-mate Rachel Cuschieri’s second goal of the day. Raina also put her name on the score-sheet in her team’s 3-1 victory over Kirkop earlier during the month.
Bernard Azzopardi, Manager of Bank of Valletta’s Birkirkara Branch presented the BOV Female Player of the Month trophy for January 2014 to Raina Giusti.
