Floriana FC’s Maurizio Vella is the BOV Player of the Month for December.
The technical left winger’s pace and acceleration was a major factor in Floriana lifting the BOV Super Cup on the 13th December. In his second year with the Greens, Floriana have also won the FA Trophy last season.
Maurizio caused the Floriana supporters’ hearts to skip a with their first chance in the BOV Super Cup Final when Vella intercepted a cross from the right fron Juninho Cabral but his shot was parried away by Hibs goalkeeper Andrew Hogg.
Vella was also a protagonist in Floriana’s 2-0 loss to Birkirkara prompting a couple of good saves from Birkirkara keeper Schranz, also hitting the crossbar and seeing a free-kick ending wide by a few inches.
Alan Attard, Manager of Bank of Valletta’s branch in Floriana presented the BOV Player of the Month trophy for December 2017 to Vella. The player chose Dar tal-Providenza to benefit from the donation associated with this award.
