VELLA SCOOPS MONTHLY AWARD

Floriana’s Maurizio Vella claimed the Player of the Month award for December.

The technical left winger’s pace and acceleration was a major factor in Floriana lifting the Super Cup on the 13th December.

Besides in his second year with the club, the Greens have also won the FA Trophy last season.

Vella caused the Floriana supporters’ hearts to skip a with their first chance in the Super Cup final when he intercepted a cross from the right from Juninho Cabral but his shot was parried away by Hibs goalkeeper Andrew Hogg.

He was also a protagonist in Floriana’s 2-0 loss to Birkirkara prompting a couple of good saves from Birkirkara keeper Schranz, besides also hitting the crossbar and seeing a free-kick ending wide by a few inches.

Meanwhile the player chose Dar tal-Providenza to benefit from the donation associated with this award.
