Hiber­ni­ans’ Bjorn Kris­tensen wins Septem­ber Player of month award

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Hiber­ni­ans’ mid­fielder Bjorn Kris­tensen is the BOV Player of the Month for Septem­ber 2016.

The Mal­tese in­ter­na­tional scored the all-im­por­tant goal in the 93rd minute of Hiber­ni­ans’ 2-1 vic­tory over Pem­broke when he headed home Failla’s free-kick. In the same match, Kris­tensen setup Hibs’ first when he ad­vanced through the mid­field and hit a per­fect pass to sub­sti­tute Varea who slot­ted past Mus­cat from an an­gle.

The Kris­tensen-Failla com­bi­na­tion was also ev­i­dent ear­lier in the month in Hibs 3-1 vic­tory over Mosta. Just be­fore the hour, Kris­tensen ex­ploded into the box stun­ning the de­fence to head home Failla’s pin-point free-kick.

Mar­ica El­lul, Man­ager of Bank of Val­letta’s Paola Branch, pre­sented the BOV Player of the Month tro­phy for Septem­ber 2016 to Kris­tensen on the BOV Dress Down Day in aid of the Pink Oc­to­ber Cam­paign.

Kris­tensen chose ALS Malta to ben­e­fit from the do­na­tion as­so­ci­ated with this award.

Bank of Val­letta is a strong ad­vo­cate of a healthy life­style as ev­i­denced in the sup­port of nu­mer­ous sport­ing ini­tia­tives in Malta and Gozo.
