BOV Player of the Month: Alan da Silva Souza wins award for February

Balzan FC striker Alan da Silva Souza is the BOV Player of the Month for February 2017.

The Brazilian midfielder, enjoying his second season with Balzan FC, scored a superb winner against Hamrun Spartans. Receiving from Alfred Effiong on the left of the box, Alan struck a measured angled shot that hit the underside of the bar and ricocheted into the net.

Da Silva Souza also pencilled his name on the Balzan scoresheet in their 7-1 routing of Malta with a close-range shot on the 73rd minute.

This is the Brazilian’s second individual award in as many seasons, having already won it in January 2016.

Bernard Azzopardi, Manager at Bank of Valletta’s Birkirkara Branch presented the BOV Player of the Month trophy for February 2017 to the player. ALS (Malta) is the charity chosen by the player to benefit from the donation associated with this award.
