Club Vice-President Mr. Alan Abela-Wadge added that with Yuri, Diego and Ricardinho the club is now well equipped with a legion of fast, technical and strong forward line that should give the Msida team the necessary firepower to compete in the BOV First Division.
Meanwhile Msida have appointed Abel Munor Martin as Under 19 coach and Assistant Coach of the Senior team.
