Malta’s Under 19 team beat Cyprus today with a 20-5 scoreline in their opening match of the Comen Cup in Larnaca, Cyprus.

The session scores were 7-0, 4-2, 4-1, 5-2 and Malta’s top scorer was Jordan Camilleri with 6 goals. Tomorrow the Maltese face Greece.

Malta is being represented with the following squad: David Abela, Michael Spiteri Staines, Michael Cordina, Jordan Camilleri, Benjamin Lanzon, Christian Cluett, Jean Claude Cutajar, Gabriel Pace, Kai Dowling, Ryan Sciortino, Zachary Mizzi and Dino Zammit.

Anthony Farrugia is coaching the Maltese youths, and the Edgar Izzo is heading the delegation while Dr Stefan Camilleri is accompanying the contingent as team doctor.

This tournament will also provide the opportunity for referee Alex DeRaffaele to gain further experience in his refereeing career as he is also forming part of the Maltese contingent in Cyprus.

    Congratulations Malta Squad U- 19. Keep up the good show boys. Parent-supporter is right in his remarks on the ASA General Secretary. No communication to the media on the team’s success. Yes Parent-supporter I fully agree with you that he should resign before being given the boot, One must not forget the gaffes he made during the season which has just ended. Gaffes that reflected on the outcome of the waterpolo competitions. Remy D’Amato warrab ghal gid tieghek u tal-loghba tal-waterpolo lokali.

    i wld have expected to see some sort of report on the TIMES OF MALTA of today. and for those who are wondering, NO, by son does not form part of the U19 squad, so no vested interest. Where is the ASA secretary who should have informed the press of Malta’s achievements? Remy, wake up.

    [Sportinmalta] Thank you for the information. We never got any official communication about Cini’s callup.


    Andrew Paris, President Exiles SC Reply:

    I can confirm that Seb Cini of Exiles is in this squad and played today, scoring 2 goals. He was a late call up by coach Anthony Farrugia, even if not communiacted by the ASA officially.

    H2O Reply:

    No he is a classic arrogant Maltese who thinks he is better than the rest but never actually shows it. Good at criticising even if there is no need and that’s about it
