The Malta Football Association is deeply saddened to learn that match official Joseph Cilia Aquilina has passed away.


Joseph was a football person through and through. After starting his refereeing career in 2014, Joseph was promoted to the National Assistant Referees category in 2016. He went on to make his senior competitive debut on 16th December, 2016 in the BOV Second Division League match between Żejtun Corinthians and St George’s.

 

His career highlights include officiating in the UEFA Under-16 Youth Development Tournament played in Malta in February 2018.

 

In addition to his refereeing activities, Joseph was also a very keen supporter of the national team, forming part of the South End Core.

 

The Malta Football Association extends its profound condolences to Joseph Cilia Aquilina’s family and friends at this sad time.
