10 Year Anniversary Cup
by Jean Pierre Mifsud
As part of the 10 year Anniversary celebrations on 11 October a game was played at the Melita Grounds. This game included players who formed part of the 'Championship Winners' as well as newer players still active in the 'Trophy Winners' with the Freeport Team. The competition was fierce and the game developed in very interesting ways so much so that it was a 7-7 draw. Penalties gave a decisive win to the 'Trophy Winners' team. A special hat trick cemented the success which was delivered by Mr. Duncan Borg Myatt.
After the game, all players and officials were invited for a meal in St. Julians. Mr. Frank Azzopardi was invited as the guest of honour since he previously held the title of both President and Founder of the Malta Freeport Football Team. As in previous years, the event provided the perfect setting for the presentation of the 'Player of the Year 2012-2013' award which was presented to Mr. Pierre Spiteri. Not only did Pierre have an excellent season with the Freeport Team but he was also honoured for the positive example he set and his unwavering dedication towards his team mates...Well done and congratulations Pierre!!
A few words were also delivered by the Secretary of MFFT Mr. Jean Pierre Mifsud who only had words of praise for all the players. It was due to their efforts that all possible honours were achieved in the competitions of the Malta Employees Sports Association. A special mention went to Mr. Pierre Spiteri and Mr.Christian Camilleri who were chosen to represent the Freeport in the MESA Team in Valencia, Spain. A small token of appreciation was given to all players which were a direct result of the unfailing efforts of Mrs. Caroline Borg, Marketing Manager. Surely these successes give the Team enough courage to look ahead and continue working so that it will find its rightful place as it deserves.
The 2012-2013 Championship kicked off on Wednesday 31 October. MFFT won with a very convincing score of 4-0 against CCF (Corradino Correctional Facility).
This year's game fixtures, as well as information regarding the game played in Valencia, have been uploaded on the Freeport website.
We would like to remind everyone that, as happened last year, MESA will once again be doing their bit in the Campaign Sports from the Heart - Istrina 2012 by organising diverse activities. All monies collected will go towards this Campaign. The tournament will be for players of 35 years of age and over and will be played on Tuesday 20 November at Mater Dei School Msida at 2.00 pm.
Anyone interested in taking part is kindly asked to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I would like to finish off by thanking anyone involved for their support especially the Directors Dr. Borg Myatt and Mr. Jason Montebello as well as Mrs. Caroline Borg, Marketing Manager as well as every Head of Department. A special thanks also goes to everyone in the Finance Department for their direct help so that this dream can continue to grow and last, but certainly not least, a big thank you goes to the below-mentioned sponsors without whose support this event could not have been such a success!
