Our hardworking Under 20 and Senior Team player, Alex Borg, was included in Karl Izzo and Tony Farrugia’s preliminary Under 19 National Squad in preparation for the Men’s European U/19 Water Polo Championships 2014 Qualification Tournament held in Malta between the 7 – 11 May 2014
Alex gives a brief account of this experience:
“Last month, I was given the opportunity to train and play two Premier League games with the Maltese National Team (Under 19). It was a most remote dream come true. When called, I was beside myself with excitement and trained harder with my side, Otters, to be fitter than ever. During the first training sessions I quickly made new friends and enjoyed informal discussions with the National Coach, Karl Izzo and fellow players about the game, tactics and techniques. The games I played against players I read about all the time in the sports pages of the local newspapers in summer and I felt so proud. I did my utmost to play well and learn as much as possible”.
