U-Turn as Sullivan is again Hamrun President

Friday, August 20, 2010, 19:11

Council members that were present at Thursday’s first MFA Council meeting chaired for the first time by Norman Darmanin Demajo were informed that Daniel Sullivan will be once again be the President of Hamrun Spartans for the forthcoming season.

Sullivan had earlier this summer informed the Spartans committee members that due to work commitments he would step down from his role as President. It seems that efforts to find a temporary replacement for Sullivan was fruitless, thus the Club and Sullivan himself made a u-turn and had to inform the MFA of his official post in time for the first MFA Council meeting.

Ms.Grech had two consecutive interviews conducted by Dr.Joe Mifsud and by Mr.Norman Saliba Marketing, Communications and Events Manager of the MFA. She had been offered and subsequently signed a contract that will see her now form part of the Media and PR team amongst other responsabilities.
