A five goal burst in as many games in the BOV Premier League during the month of April 2016 was enough for Sliema forward Jean Paul Farrugia to secure the BOV Player of the Month award for April 2016.
A very mobile player, Farrugia claimed ‘Man of the Match’ in Sliema’s 1-0 victory over Mosta where he scored the winner when he picked Gary Muir’s pass inside the area and tapped it past Mosta keeper Omar Borg. Farrugia also picked up 2 goals in Sliema’s 4-2 win over Naxxar.
Last won by a Sliema player Stanley Ohawuchi in September 2013, this award will definitely boost Farrugia in the FA Trophy Final where they are vying for their 21st title.
Noel Scerri, Manager of Bank of Valletta’s Branch at Preluna Towers in Sliema presented the BOV Player of the Month award trophy to Farrugia who chose the Hospice Malta to benefit from the donation associated with this award.
