Valletta FC committee resigns en bloc, new elections scheduled for June 11

The Valletta FC committee have stepped down from their positions en bloc during a meeting at the club headquarters on Monday night after their three-year term comes to a close this month.

The Citizens have experienced a very poor campaign in the Premier League which saw the team condemned to relegation for the first time in the club’s history.

The team’s fall from grace in the top flight has inevitably produced a huge backlash from the club fans who in the past fortnight have been calling incessantly for a change in leadership.

The club committee met on Monday and during the meeting, they agreed to step down from their position to allow new people come into the club.

Club president Alexander Fenech has been showing signs in the past few months of his wish to move away from the club and let other investors come into the club and take the helm of the capital club’s administration.

It looks as though some of the current committee members will again put their name forward for another term in office but there are others who have decided to move away from the club.

Sources close to the club told the Times of Malta that the Citizens are desperate to attract a number of investors who can help the club put itself on more solid foundations and continue to invest in the club’s academy.

Their youth set-up has been so successful this season with their youth team going on to win the league title and secure participation in the UEFA Youth League next season.

In a statement, Valletta FC announced on Tuesday that committee elections will headline the agenda of the Annual General Meeting that will be held on June 11 at the Sala San Duminku in Valletta.

Nominations for a committee post must reach the club’s general secretary by no later than Friday, May 31.
