knock-out winners 1975

It was exactly forty years ago on Monday the 8th September 1975 in the morning when Exiles etched its name on a trophy for a first ever honour, the Second Division Waterpolo Knock-Out Competition by beating B’Bugia 4-1 in the final played at Neptunes Pitch with goals coming from Peter Paris (2), Brian Camilleri and Ray Manara.

In the run-up to the final, Exiles easily disposed of Ta’ Xbiex (8-2) and newly-crowned champions Marsascala (7-5) which according to press reports proved to be the best match of the Knock-Out competition. In 1975 the team had started under the helm of Bertie Portelli a former stalwart of the local game however as the season progressed, he resigned and a tandem made up of Charles Grixti and Vanni Bruno two of the founder members of the Club, took over the team for the rest of the season and which saw a marked cahnges in the team’s style of play from the previous years’ outings.
