Joe Chetcuti passes away

The death has been announced of Joe Chetcuti who passed away on the 9th January 2014 at the age of 65 years.

Joe was at the helm of the Club’s waterpolo first team in 1984 and managed to clinch the second¬† division knock-out competition when at Sirens Pitch St Paul’s Bay, Exiles beat Marsascala 6-5 in front of a packed house in a match that served as a curtain raiser to the first division knock-out final. In the league campaign, there was a novelty during that season with all nine participating teams playing a round robin similar to one adopted in the last seasons. Exiles eventually ended runners up in the second sector of the final classification.

Joe had his own style of training preparation and coaching which he had accumulated during his playing days with Neptunes. His stint at Exiles served him as a spring board as the following year he joined the technical staff of the Reds.

Few will remember that Joe had another connection with Exiles when he formed part of its volleyball team. Originally together with his closest family friends, he formed part of a team DML United which eventually joined forces with Exiles to form one of the strongest outfits on the Island. This was ten years earlier in 1974 when the matches for the final three placings of the National Volleyball matches were played under floodlights at the Villa Rosa Hotel complex with our boys ending joint second.

Our deepest sympathy and condolences to his children Kurt and Karl as well as to his sisters Margaret and Monica and also to brother Michael and his wife Anna Paris.

May God grant him eternal peace.

We will miss Joe
