A reception was recently organized to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of White Hart Hockey Club. It was a night to remember for Laferla White Hart Hockey Club members with a good attendance ranging from past players and members to present senior and junior players and their guests.

The night started with welcome drinks and finger food as everyone exchanged greetings. A display of past kits used throughout White Hart’s 40 year story was another attraction, plus a big screen highlighting photos of White Hart’s history.

The highlight of the night was a video feature created by the White Hart Committee, reliving the start-up of the club, the early years and the glory days. Emotions were high with a memorable tribute to the late Tony Tabone – a major contributor to White Hart Hockey Club. Following this, the Youth Development team highlighted the clubs plans for the future, including a partnership with Luxol Sports Club.

Mark Laferla Jnr. from Laferla Insurance Agency Ltd. then presented a cheque for the 2015/2016 season sponsorship to Club President Robert Vassallo-Agius. In a short speech, Mr. Laferla said that Laferla Insurance Agency Ltd have faith in the Club and wished well for the coming season while Robert Vassallo-Agius thanked the sponsor for their kind sponsorship. He went on to thank the committee for the organization of such an unforgettable night and all those present for attending and supporting the club.

A commemorative cake was then cut by founding members and past players before group photos were taken. A live performance from Malta’s music doctors ensued; with current player Paul Torpiano and singer Gianluca Bezzina, which both form part of the local band Funk Initiative, livening up the night.
