Marcelo Barbosa, the Gharb Rangers forward, has been announced as the BOV GFA Player of the Month for March. Barbosa chose the Arka Foundation to benefit from the donation related to this award.
It was only in January that Barbosa joined the Rangers Club, but soon won the admiration of the Gozitan football fans, not only with his technical and physical skills, but also with his decisive goal-scoring.
The Club said that the Brazilian’s contributions helped Gharb move away from the relegation zone and be competitive against higher quoted teams.
The 27-year old scored the winning goal in Gharb’s 1-0 victory over Xewkija Tigers and also found the back of the net in his team’s 3-3 draw against second placed Nadur Youngsters.
His most significant contribution came in Gharb’s second victory over Xewkija with a score of 5-3 where Barbosa scored no less than 4 of his team’s goals.
Regional Executive for Gozo at Bank of Valletta Horace Laudi, presented the BOV GFA Player of the Month Trophy.
