The Malta national team, represented amongst other players by captain and striker Michael Mifsud and midfielders Roderick Briffa and Paul Fenech for the men’s team and Ylenia Carabott,Gabriella Zahra, Janice Xuereb and Raina Giusti  for the women’s team, visited San Ġorġ Preca Girls’ Secondary School, Hamrun, as part of their ongoing series of visits to several schools intended to bolster the popularity of our national teams, thus bringing them closer to the younger generation of the public.


 

 

 

The players were accompanied by Robert Gatt, MFA Technical Director, Norman Saliba, the association’s Head of Marketing, Mark Muscat, Media Officer, national teams, Maria Mifsud, Deputy General Secretary Women’s Section and Alfred Zammit, Secretary of the women’s national team.

 

There was an introduction by Mr Ray Vella, head of school, who thanked the players and the MFA for the visit. He spoke about the importance of players living up to their reputation of being role models for the young.

 

The school’s football team was afforded the privilege of experiencing a session of fun football alongside the national team players, considered by them to be the idols of students.

 

The national team players then distributed team posters of the male and female national teams to the girls while they signed autograpghs and chatted with them. Being Women’s Day, the male national players presented their female counterparts as well as the school’s team with a flower each, a gesture also made by the school administration towards the female teachers at the school.

 

The whole activity was conducted with enthusiasm and a spirit of togetherness and in the end it turned out to be a very successful visit.
