BOV Player of the Month: Jake Grech wins August award

Hibernians midfielder Jake Grech is the BOV Player of the Month for August 2019.

Trailing Gudja 1-0 in Hibernians’ season opener, the 21 year old scored central midfielder struck a long shot from the edge of the area to hit the base of the net cancelling Gudja’s lead.

Grech was the architect behing Hibs 4-1 routing of neighbours Tarxien. His non-stop running and sharp-delivery skills were the catalyst in Tarxien’s defeat. After being denied twice by Tarxien ‘keeper Rudy Briffa, he fed Groothusen for Hibs’ second, Nanni for the 3rd and Mbong for the fourth, earning him the Player of the Match moniker, which he also earned in their first match of the season.

Charles Azzopardi, Executive PR & Marketing at Bank of Valletta presented the BOV Player of the Month trophy for August 2019 to Grech who chose Puttinu Cares to benefit from the donation associated with this award.
