Xewkija Tigers forward Rodney Buttigieg is the BOV GFA Player of the Month for December 2015
This is the first individual award for Rodney who started his career with Xewkija, where he returned at the start of this football season.
During December, Rodney stood out in his team’s three matches from three different competitions. He scored a hat-trick in Xewkija’s 6-3 victory over St Lawrence Spurs in the BOV GFA Cup and scored a spectacular goal against SK Victoria Wanderers in the Knockout Competition. He also shone in Xewkija’s President’s Cup match against BOV Premier League Champions Hibernians.
The young attacker is instrumental in Xewkija’s ranks who are seeking their third consecutive GFA League title and his goals have repeatedly helped Xewkija overcome difficult situations.
Horace Laudi, Bank of Valletta’s Regional Manager for Gozo presented the BOV GFA Player of the Month trophy to Buttigieg during one of Xewkija’s training sessions in front of his team mates and coach Alex Simoncic. The player chose the Arka Foundation to benefit from the donation associated with this award
