BOV Player of the Month: Michael Mifsud wins August award

Valletta FC striker Michael Mifsud is the BOV Premier League Player of the Month for August 2017.

The nippy Valletta striker opened his scoring account for the 2017/2018 season in their 1-0 victory over Senglea where he was voted Man of the Match. On the 33rd minute of the match, Zerafa pin-pointed the veteran striker inside the area, where he showed all his class by beating Senglea goalkeeper Aquilina with a fine back heel.

Mifsud also featured strongly in Valletta’s season opener against Mosta, and was only denied his name on the scorer’s list when Zac Brincat threw himself full length to block Michael’s swerving shot.

Charles Grech Soler, Manager of Bank of Valletta’s Branch in Republic Street, Valletta, presented the newly designed BOV Player of the Month Trophy to Mifsud who chose Puttinu Cares to benefit from the donation associated with this award.

Bank of Valletta is a major sponsor of sporting initiatives in Malta through its extensive Community Programme and this is the 13th consecutive season that BOV is one of the main supporters of the Malta Football Association.
