Valletta Players to participate in Gowl ghall-Istrina

This years edition of ‘Gowl g─žall-Istrina’, will be held next Tuesday 21st December. All proceeds raised through this event will go towards the annual fund-raising fixture, L-Istrina, in aid of the Community Chest Fund.

The event, held under the auspices of His Excellency, the President of the Republic, Dr George Abela, will commence at 6.15pm. A match between local selection vs foreigners will kick-off at 7.30pm at the Hibernians Ground.

What makes this initiative even more special is the fact that participants will raise money themselves through individual sponsors.

Valletta FC (Under 11) will also participate with the nurseries of the other 9 Premier Division clubs. Valletta FC local players Andrew Hogg, Roderick Briffa and Jonathan Caruana were called to form part of the local team while Ramon Dos Santos, Denni Rocha Dos Santos and Joseph Okonkwo were called to from part of the foreigner’s team. The local team will be under the guidance of coaches Jesmond Zerafa and Paul Zammit.

Each club will present an official club kit signed by all players and technical staff, the official shirts will be then auctioned during the Net Replay programme of Sunday 19th December. All participating clubs will also present a cheque to L-Istrina representing funds collected from players, officials and committee members, which amount will be topped up by the club itself.

Admission is free but the crowd present can make their contributions during the tournament at each entrance point. All the proceeds will be donated to the President, Dr George Abela, during L-Istrina.
