Xewkija Tigers Captain Joseph Cefai is the BOV GFA Player of the Month for November 2018. 

33 year old Cefai is a product of the Tigers’ nursery and debuted with the seniors team in the 2001/2002 season, and has won all honours in Gozitan Football including 4 leagues, 6 GFA Cups, 5 Super Cups among others. 


Following a disappointing start to the season, losing out in the Super Cup final and some inconsistent matches, Xewkija regrouped and are currently second on the BOV GFA League, in the semi-final of the BOV GFA Cup and also in the quarter finals of the FA Trophy. 

During November, Cefai was instrumental in Xewkija’s 3-1 win over Kercem Ajax, setting up two of his team’s goals while scoring a goal and providing the assist for the second goal in their 9-0 whitewashing of Munxar Falcons.

Horace Laudi, Executive Gozo Region for Bank of Valletta presented the BOV GFA Player of the Month trophy for November 2018 to Cefai who chose Puttinu Cares to benefit from the donation associated with this award.
