Matthew Xerri selected for the Malta National Under 17 Squad.

Our promising goalkeeper Matthew Xerri has been called up for the Malta Under 17 Squad in preparation for the EU Nations Cup to be played in Austria from the 24th March to the 27th March (see the ASA Circular attached here).

Matthew’s attributes were already well known by all those connected to Otters. In fact last summer he was introduced in the Senior Team as the reserve goalkeeper and he was also given playing time. During this winter Matthew was loaned to Neptunes with whom he won the National Under 17 Winter League (see photos). Now his qualities have attracted the attention of the National Team Coaches.              IMG_1808

His initial reaction was to thank the Otters Committee for letting him experience this new challenge. Which experience has taught him a lot of new things and thus is helping him become a better player. He hopes there is more to come because he really enjoys playing Waterpolo.

Keep it up Matthew !
