BOV Premier League

Ħamrun Spartans forward Jorge Ailton Soares ‘Dodo’ has won his second BOV Player of the Month award in a row. The Cape Verde-born player is proving to be a great asset in Ħamrun’s strong challenge to win their first Premier League title in three decades.

Soares maintained his brilliant form during January. In the match against Santa Lucia, with the Spartans trailing by two goals, Soares unleashed a powerful drive to narrow the deficit. Deep into stoppage time, Soares provided the assist for Franklin Sasere to head home and earn Ħamrun an important point.


Earlier in the month, the Spartans found themselves a goal down and with 10 men against Mosta. Soares connected with a Karl Micallef cross to head home the equaliser. His attacking flair and assist to Sasere for Ħamrun’s third goal earned him the BOV Player of the Match honour.


Dodo received the BOV Player of the Month trophy for January from Gilbert Zahra, Manager of Bank of Valletta’s Ħamrun Branch in the presence of Malta Vice-President Dr Matthew Paris before Sunday’s match against Balzan. The player chose Fondazzjoni Arka to benefit from the donation associated with this award.
