BOV Player of the Month: St Andrew’s Kevaughn Atkinson wins April award

St. Andrews bagged 7 points in the last three matches of the season to maintain their spot in the BOV Premier League, largely through the efforts of Kevaughn Atkinson.

St. Andrews’ positive streak took off with their 2-1 victory over Lija Athletic with the Jamaican midfielder authoring both goals. The first by pushing the ball past the Lija keeper after receiving inside the area from Joseph Farrugia, with the second coming in the 56th minute, where he set off on a solo run, making his way into the box and blasting past a helpless Martinelli.

A memorable performance against Birkirkara earned St Andrews a 1-0 victory over their higher quoted opponents, hitting the woodwork twice, earning a penalty, that was also sent against the woodwork by Kemar Reid, and serving Misael Miranda with the perfect assist to slam past the Birkirkara keeper.

Charles Azzopardi, Executive PR and Marketing at Bank of Valletta presented Atkinson with the BOV Player of the Month trophy for March 2018. Kevaughn chose Puttinu Cares to benefit from the donation associated with this award.
