Dr. Anton Tabone
Having grown up in St. Francis Square, only a stone’s throw away from the Victoria Hotspurs clubhouse in Triq Putirjal, is the obvious reason why I became a Hotspurs supporter since my childhood. I particularly remember the scenes of jubilation in front of the clubhouse when Hotspurs won the league in 1979-80. I remember, still age 13, getting involved in the celebrations and I believe that those league festivities triggered inside of me a desire to somehow remain associated with Victoria Hotspurs. Since those days I have been a Victoria Hotpurs supporter, a player and a President - twice.
Over the years Hotspurs has become the most successful Gozitan team primarily because of its passionate and loyal fans. I am privileged to be part of the Hotspurs family. Sometimes it is difficult to express in words the synergy and the collective enthusiasm that all committee members, players and fans have towards each other.
This unity was the recipe of last year’s success and it this unity that will be our guiding light as we try to reconfirm ourselves also this time round. As to the future…..I see our Club continue to attract the best local football talent towards it. I see our Club continue attracting committee members who are serious individuals with an impeccable reputation. I see our Club continue its rebranding and modernisation exercise to attract new fans and members. I see our Club become an established and ever-more respected and admired club in the whole Maltese Islands thanks to our team’s successes and to our organisation. I see our Club remain the no.1 team in Gozo! So, Go For It Hotspurs !!
