Joseph Portelli is back as president of Ħamrun Spartans following a committee meeting that was held on Thursday.
Last week, Portelli as president of Ħamrun Spartans in order to register himself as a player with the team. He took this decision as according to MFA regulations, a club president is precluded from being registered as a player with that same club.
However, his efforts to be registered as a player on Deadline Day, the final day of the transfer market, were ended by the Malta FA Executive Board which turned down his application to register as a player.
The Malta FA body took the decision on the recommendation of the Ethics Committee which had discussed the matter at the start of the week.
Following the MFA’s decision, Portelli has opted against appealing the decision and on Thursday he made a request to the club’s committee to have his resignation revoked.
The club committee accepted Portelli’s request and the Gozitan tycoon has again been approved as the Spartans supremo.
The Spartans are now expected to file the requested paperwork to the Malta Football Association so that he will be confirmed as the club president once more.
The return of Portelli as president of Ħamrun Spartans will no doubt delight the numerous club fans who stood behind their president’s quest of donning the club shirt for a few minutes this season.
