Kercem Ajax F.C. veteran left halfback Sabri Rais was the winner of the second BOV Player of the Month award for November 2012, whilst midfielder Elton Vella Xewkija Tigers F.C., was the winner of the BOV Player of the Month December 2012 award. Nadur Youngsters F.C. striker Claudio Antunes was the winner of the BOV Player of the Month January award.
This honour was a deserved reward for 43-year-old Sabri Rais who has been one of Kercem Ajax’s top performers so far this season, as they remained undefeated at the end of the first round. His goal-scoring instinct was evident when he scored against Victoria Hotspurs.
Undoubtedly, Elton Vella’s top performance during December helped the reigning champions Xewkija Tigers to move closer to the top position and re-opened their chance to defend their title.
Brazilian striker Antunes was instrumental in helping Nadur Youngsters stay at the top of the Melita First Division League. Mr Antunes was one of the top performers in the four games played by club in January, scoring two goals against Victoria Hotspurs to give Nadur Youngsters a 4-3 win and again against Xewkija Tigers for a 3-2 result. He also scored one goal against SK Victoria Wanderers 2-0 and Xaghra United 4-0.
