Mġarr United’s captain Brenda Borg is the BOV Female Player of the Month for October 2020 and Birkirkara FC captain Stephanie Farrugia won the award for November and December 2020. Brenda Borg is leading her team in keeping pressure on the BOV Women’s League Leaders Birkirkara. The 23 year old forward scored a hat-trick in Mgarr’s 8-1 win over Mosta, from her 5 goal tally during October. She also scored Malta’s opener in the 2-0 win over Israel in the Women’s Euro Cup Qualifier. Birkirkara are vying for their 5th BOV League title in a row under the Stephania’s captaincy. The 29 year old leadership is exemplary, with Birkirkara suffering only 2 goals in their opening 9 matches of the season. Despite her backward position, Farrugia put her name on the scoresheet in Birkirkara’s 12-0 win over Mtarfa. Charles Azzopardi, Executive PR and Marketing at Bank of Valletta presented commemorative trophies to both players and congratulated them on their achievements.
