Malta Independent - - SPORT - Do­minic Aquilina

The new FA Tro­phy was dis­played dur­ing the com­pe­ti­tion’s 3rd & 4th round draws press con­fer­ence which took place at Ta’ Qali. The new de­signed tro­phy was handed over by the English FA dur­ing the World Cup qual­i­fier be­tween Eng­land and Malta last Oc­to­ber 8th.

The draws were made by Malta FA out­go­ing Gen­eral Sec­re­tary Bjorn Vas­sallo and Rod­ney Pisani, Deputy Gen­eral Sec­re­tary and Head of Ad­min­is­tra­tion and Com­petions De­part­ment within the Malta FA.

FA Tro­phy hold­ers Sliema Wan­der­ers were drawn to meet Mosta in the third round of the com­pe­ti­tion.

Rod­ney Pisani also an­nounced that th­ese third round matches will be played be­tween the 29th and 30th of Novem­ber and the 13th and 14th of De­cem­ber forth­com­ing.

The first ever fi­nal con­test­ing this new FA Tro­phy will take place on May 20th, 2017.

Upon be­ing asked by the Malta In­de­pen­dent what in his views will he be leav­ing be­hind after his re­cent ap­point­ment within FIFA, the out­go­ing Gen­eral Sec­re­tary re­sponded “I feel I will be leav­ing a legacy, a very pos­i­tive legacy – not on my be­half but within all our hard­work­ing team at the As­so­ci­a­tion. We have worked hard to see all sec­tors of foot­ball evolve to a pos­i­tive change. Mov­ing for­ward from what we found when this team got elected to head the As­so­ci­a­tion was not easy. It took us six years of hard work to change all this and get to where we are now. I would like to men­tion our hard work­ing Pres­i­dent Nor­man Dar­manin De­majo who at times had to take dif­fi­cult de­ci­sions. You have to be strong and take de­ci­sions in or­der to move for­ward”
