Champions Neptunes Emirates have started strengthening their squad in view of the forthcoming season with the acquisition of Edward Aquilina. He signed a 4 year contract with the Balluta side.
Aquilina featured for a number of years in the Sliema squad that won all honours and last season had joined Marco Risso’s San Giljan. The 27-year old is known for his powerful shooting and prowess in front of goal and up to a few years ago was also a pivotal player in the national squad.
Aquilina grew up in the junior sector of arch-rivals Sliema, before being promoted to the first team, and he looks forward to adding more honours to the 5 championships, 3 Knock-outs and 3 President’s Cups that he won with Sliema.
