Exiles launch Golden Anniversary Programme

Yesterday,  8th January 2017, Exiles Sports Club, called a press conference to announce a series of activities to mark this historic year in the Club’s annals. The event kicked off with the unveiling of the Club’s Anniversary logo being used throughout this year on the design of Matthew De Marco.

President Andrew Paris touched briefly on the Club’s first months of existence fifty years ago before focussing on the main aims behind these celebrations. Two communities in the vicinity of the Club premises, namely St Patrick’s School and the Ursuline Creche will be the beneficiaries of funds raised from the various activities planned during the current calendar year. In the next few weeks, the Committee intends making public the activities being planned, but a few of them were disclosed such as donating fifty bags of blood to the National Blood Transfusion Centre, a photographic exhibition of ‘old’ Sliema, a ‘historic’ Walkabout in Sliema and applying to put up a stand in the Sliema Arts Festival Week organized annually by the  Local Council in July.

The next item in the President’s speech was an update on the Club’s waterpolo first team. Five new signings were made – Matthew Castillo, Benji Lanzon, Michele Stellini, Timmy Sullivan and Sean Xerri de Caro – to substitute six outgoing players who will not be representing the Club next season. Andrew Paris took the opportunity of the event to thank the Club’s sponsors for 2017, JetFreight Services Ltd for accepting to renew their sponsorship for another year, having backed the Club a few years ago using the company’s former brand. The  sponsors were represented  by its top man, Mr Olvin Galea, the Managing Director who  expressed the company’s satisfaction of being associated with our Club.

The press conference was brought to an end by the showing of a video  currently found on the International Olympic channel and  that has made the rounds world-wide and received several thousand hits. This foreign production  styled ‘The Z Team’ portrays the transformation in seven days of the Exiles Under 17 team following the technical coaching and hands-on experience of Hungarian Waterpolo Gold Medallist Tamas Molnar to the members of the team to become one of the strongest local outfits in that age-group, last season.

The members of the Press which included the Times of Malta, The Independent, In-Nazzjon and TVM were then introduced to the Committee Members present and asked to join for drinks together with all members of the 2017 waterpolo team and technical staff, including Coach Dorian Pisani and his assistant Matthew Pisani.
