Charles Grixti passes away

It is with deep regret to inform that Charles Grixti, one of the Club’s founder members in 1967, passed away yesterday morning, 26th of July 2015, at the age of 66 years.

Charles formed part of the first waterpolo team set up in the early days when, as a non-league club, Exiles arranged friendly matches against age-group teams of the first division clubs in the late 60’s before on the 12th July 1970, a competitive team participated for the first time in the Second Division League of the ASA. In 1975, together with Vanni Bruno they steered the Club to its first ever honour by carrying the Second Division Knock-Out Competition beating Birzebbuga 4-1 in the final. Charles always followed the fortunes of Exiles even whilst pursuing his studies overseas in the medical profession which he loved so much and practised in a most professional manner. In 1983, he was instrumental in spotting Jerry Birmingham, the first foreign waterpolo player to sign for Exiles. At the Club’s social activities, he made it a point of  attending whenever his limited spare time permitted.

Exiles has lost one of its gentlemen.

To his wife Marvic, his sons Philip and Jonathan and their respective wives, we would like to convey our sinceriest condolences.

Farewell Charles – rest in peace.
