Replaces governing body founder Louis Borg
The Malta Handball Association has a new president in office, Paul Zammit, who was unanimously elected to the post during the governing body’s annual general meeting. Zammit will be heading the MHA for the next four years.
This year, the association is celebrating its 25th anniversary and the association members showed their appreciation to their former founder and president Louis Borg who stepped down from the post of head of the organisation.
Zammit, although coming from the football camp, brings a great amount of experience in sport administration both at senior and youth level. Over the past years he served as president of Melita Football Club and held posts in various Malta Football Association boards and the Youth FA.
On the other hand, Ian Psaila was elected as vice-president. Psaila has been active in the handball scene since 1999 first as a player with La Salle Handball Club, then as coach seeing him win in all major local competitions.
Later, Psaila also served as assistant coach with the men’s senior national team and most recently was national coach of the Beach Handball team.
In a statement the MHA said: “Both Paul and Ian would like to thank Louis Borg, who is now Honorary President of the Malta Handball Association, Andrew Decelis and the many other people who where involved in handball and kept it going for the last 25 years.
“The association now aims to build on that in place, and plans to push the game to higher levels whilst attracting new youngsters to the fast paced and fun game of handball.”
