Sliema ASC and National Team goalkeeper Nicholas Grixti is the BOV Player of the Month for July 2020.
Sliema consolidated their defence when acquiring Grixti from Sirens following the 2019 championship and this immediately paid dividends with Sliema winning the Enemed Cup 2020, the first major award in a number of years for the most decorated team in Maltese Water Polo.
With the safest hands in Maltese Water Polo between the posts, Sliema have recorded big wins, since Water Polo returned from the break brought about by COVID-19. Sliema only conceded 23 goals in the last three matches of the ENEMED Cup and the first two matches of the BOV Water Polo league, while scoring 72 goals in the process.
This is the third monthly award for Grixti who first won it in 2015 while still playing in the U19 Category and last year’s award for July.
Peter Perotti, Chief Officer at Bank of Valletta presented a commemorative trophy to Nicholas Grixti while observing all guidelines by the Health Authorities.
