Victoria Hotspurs forward Miguel Montano is the BOV GFA Player of the Month for September 2015 and Daniel Bogdanovic (Xewkija Tigers) won the award for October 2015.
Twenty-four year old Colombian Miguel Montano joined Victoria Hotspurs after trials in the BOV Premier League in Malta during the summer months. Montano was very present throughout September in the first matches of the Gozo Championship 2015/2016. He scored the Spurs’ only goal in their 1-0 win over Kercem Ajax and also scored four goals in Victoria’s 7-0 routing of St Lawrence Spurs. With a determined style of play, Montano is spurring his team-mates to be major contenders for the League this season.
During October, Bogdanovic provided the spark in Xewkija’s three league games as well as their second round victory over Marsa in the FA trophy where he scored twice. Bogdanovic also scored twice in Xewkija’s 3-2 loss to Kercem as well as scoring the winning goal in their 2-1 victory over Victoria Hotspurs.
Horace Laudi, Bank of Valletta’s Gozo Regional Manager presented the BOV GFA Player of the Month trophies for September and October 2015 to Montano and Bogdanovic who both chose Fondazzjoni Arka to benefit from the donation associated with this award.
