BOV GFA Player of the Month: Claudio Antunes wins March Award

Claudio Antunes (Nadur Youngsters) is the BOV GFA Player of the Month for March 2017.

The Brazilian forward was a pivot in Nadur’s turnaround from a negative patch during the second round of the BOV GFA League to give recently crowned champions Xewkija Tigers a run for the title. Although best known as a forward, the 28 year old, played a more retreated role, providing numerous assists to his team-mates, but still scoring three goals during March, one against SK Victoria Wanderers and two in their 8-0 win over Xaghra United.

Antunes is one of the foreigners who has achieved the most success in Gozitan Football since joining Nadur in the 2011/12 season. Known as a motivator, especially in difficult moments, he boasts one GFA championship and 2 top-scorer awards as well as numerous caps with the Gozo League Team.

Horace Laudi, Regional Manager of BOV Gozo, at Bank of Valletta presented the BOV GFA Player of the Month trophy for March 2017 to the player, who chose Fondazzjoni Arka to benefit from the donation associated with this award.
