Malta Veterans win MUSC Cup

The Malta veterans won the MUSC Cup after beating Manchester Reds 4-0 in a game played at the Centenary Stadium.

The Maltese players took advantage of the opportunities that came their way and punished the Manchester veterans four times without reply.

This match was organised by the Manchester United Supporters Club Malta and was the climax to a series of events commemorating the club’s 65th anniversary. Former Red Devils’ players such as Jaap Stam, Ronny Johnsen and other former players had the chance to measure themselves with the Maltese Veterans.

The Maltese surged ahead in the first half courtesy of a Michael Galea’s header while in the second half Mark Barbara, Kevin Sammut and Ian Zammit added more goals for their team.

At the end of the contest, Manchester United Supporters Club president Joseph Tedesco presented the cup to veterans’ captain Brian Said.

The Maltese started with this formation:

Mario Muscat, Jeffrey Chetcuti, Carlo Mamo, Brian Said, Stephen Wellman, Gareth Sciberras, Kevin Sammut, Roderick Bajada, Michael Galea, Jamie Pace, Aleksandar Ribic.
