Gzira United’s Jefferson de Assis continued adding ‘BOV Player of the Month’ trophies to his cabinet, following his awards for August and September 2022, and the first he won in October 2019.
The Brazilian striker was the hero for Gżira United as he scored twice to hand the Maroons a fine 2-0 win over Hibernians in the direct clash between two teams that are challenging for a place in European football this summer earning himself the ‘BOV Player of the Match moniker.’
Earlier in the month, Jefferson hit the opener in Gzira’s 3-0 win over Marsaxlokk, receiving from Maxuell and blasting past a helpless Drobnjak. These two wins consolidated Darren Abdilla’s side in the second spot in the BOV Premier League table, behind runaway leaders Hamrun, with Jefferson currently leading the Top Scorers’ list.
Priscilla Attard, Manager of Bank of Valletta’s Gzira Branch presented the BOV Player of the Month Trophy for January 2022 to De Assis who chose Caritas to benefit from the Bank’s donation associated with this award.
The BOV Player of the Month award is presented to the best performing player in the BOV Premier League as voted by a judging panel. This forms part of the collaboration between the Malta Football Association and Bank of Valletta to promote excellence in sports.
