Sirens goalkeeper Nicholas Grixti and Marsaskala goalie Jurgen Micallef are the BOV Water Polo Players of the Month for July 2019 for the BOV Premier League and BOV First Division league respectively.

National team keeper Grixti has been pulling a string of magnificent saves throughout the season leading his team into the BOV Premier League play-offs. An outstanding game for Grixti against Sliema saw them obtain an 8-8 draw against the Blues where he even denied Norbert Hoznyansky from the penalty line.

Jurgen Micallef was instrumental in Marsaskala qualifying for the final of the BOV Water Polo first division Knockout and also inspired them in their 17-14 win over higher placed Valletta.

Stefan Abela from Bank of Valletta's PR & Marketing department presented a commemorative plaque to both goalkeepers.

Bank of Valletta is a major supporter of sporting initiatives in Malta and has been the main supporter of the Aquatic Sports Association of Malta since 2008.
