BIRKIRKARA 2 Dimitrov 72, Carlos Alberto 104 SAN ĠWANN 1 Henshaw 12 Birkirkara struggled much more than expected to eliminate Division One side San Ġwann, beating them 2-1 after extra-time to reach the FA Trophy quarter-finals. San Ġwann surprisingly managed to take the lead on the 12th minute. Alan Borg released Godwin Blessing Henshaw inside the area and the latter controlled the ball before beating goalkeeper Kristijan Naumovski with a powerful shot which gave the Macedonian goalkeeper no chance. Birkirkara finally managed to equalize on the 72nd minute when Jake Grech’s freekick from the left was partially saved by Manuel Bartolo and Fernando Barbosa Pereira placed the ball at the back of the net. The Stripes notched the winner in the extra-time later when Carlos Alberto da Silva’s fine shot from the edge of the area beat the helpless Bartolo to put Birkirkara in the next round.

Claudio Grech wrote on social media about the hundreds of substandard housing units and pavements, residents denied parking because of spaces hijacked by government departments and ministries, the encroachment of restaurants and bars onto streets blocking the passageway, and the lack of local council funding which would enable it to invest in the residential infrastructure. He also referred to the poor sporting facilities, and said Valletta had been overrun by scaffolding and trenches. “It is a shame that culture has been turned into festivities, which have not paid any respect to what the residents deserve,” he concluded.
Labour MP Clayton Bartolo, who represents the government on the Planning Authority board, has defended his U-turn on a fuel station in Magħtab. In December, the PA board provisionally voted six to two against the controversial proposal. However, when the board met again last week, the project was approved by 10 votes to four, despite the plans remaining unchanged. Mr Bartolo was one of two board members to change his vote between the two meetings while the six members absent for the December hearing all voted in favour this time. When contacted, Mr Bartolo said that he changed his mind after the “applicant gave valid reasons against the reasons for refusal” that he and other board members put forward in December and after he reviewed the case officer’s report which recommended approval. “It transpired that this application is in line with the fuel stations policy. Hence, I voted in favour,” he said. The other board member to flip his vote, Transport Malta official Ivan Tabone, refused to speak to the Times of Malta when contacted about his vote. “I won’t listen to you. Do not contact me again,” he said before abruptly ending the conversation. The 3,500-square-metre project by...
