Strength & Conditioning Coaching Clinic Session by Coach Christian Vassallo from Arsenal FC

On Friday 29th December 2017 Mqabba FC coaching staff, senior team and players in the Under 15 to Under 19 categories had the opportunity to attend an intensive and very interesting interactive session on Strength and Conditioning, delivered by Coach Christian Vassallo. Mr Vassallo is a coach of Maltese descent who is currently working with the Arsenal Football Club Academy in the UK.

Coach Christian Vassallo started his football career as player with Rabat Depiro F.C. and, later on, had stints at Crewe Alexandra F.C. before moving to Chasetown F.C. He also played with the Malta National U15, U17 and U19 teams between the years 2006 and 2010. In May 2015 he was honoured with the Loughborough Employability Award from the Loughborough University, and in August 2017 he was awarded the Richard Holmes Emerging Strength and Conditioning Coach of the Year, from the United Kingdom Strength and Conditioning Association (UKSCA).

Mr Christian Vassallo is highly qualified in the area of strength and conditioning. His accreditations include: Level 1 Technician: Restricted Profile from the International Society for the Advancement of Kinanthropometry (ISAK) (September 2012); Accredited Strength and Conditioning Coach (ASCC) from the United Kingdom Strength and Conditioning Association (UKSCA) (August 2013); First-Class Honours in BSc (Hons.) Sport and Exercise Science from Loughborough University (2011-2015) and MSc in Strength and Conditioning from St Mary's University, Twickenham (2015).

In addition to his personal qualifications and achievements, Mr Vassallo has vast professional experience that commenced by undertaking a Strength and Conditioning Internship in the UK between September 2012 and September 2013. From September 2013 to July 2015 he worked as Strength and Conditioning Coach with the England and Wales Cricket Board and, from September 2013 to July 2015, as Head of Exercise and Training Prescription at Mac-Nutrition. Since August 2015 he has been coaching in strength and conditioning with the Arsenal Football Club Academy.

Undoubtedly Mr Vassallo’s professional repertoire, expertise and experience put him at the forefront in the area of Strength and Conditioning. Throughout these years he has supported and mentored different athletes, coaches, teams and educational institutions, guiding them in their physical preparation. He is keen to impart what he has personally learnt to others and strives to be a role model to those working with him. As a coach, he is passionate about understanding and enhancing all aspects of human movement and eventually applying it to physical performance. Indeed, his mission statement is to pursue excellence in professional practice and personal development!

At the end of the session Mr Christian Vassallo was presented with a small token of Mqabba FC and a commemorative photo was taken. Once again, we would like to thank Mr Christian Vassallo for this great experience! Our gratitude goes to Mr John Sciberras for helping us organise this event at Mqabba FC Youth Nursery. Last but not least, we would also like to thank Mqabba Local Council for offering the Old Hospital Premises as a venue for this session.

Mauro Bonnici presentation as reported on MFA portal www.takeaseat.org.mt


Here under the reportage as reported entirely on the MFA portal www.takeaseat.org.mt.


Wonderful recognition for Mauro Bonnici


The 1st Division match between Mqabba and Zebbug Rangers last Saturday at the Centenary Stadium was a rather special occasion for one player in particular. Ex-Mqabba FC team captain Mauro Bonnici is on loan this season with Zebbug Rangers and ironically both teams met on the opening day of the league.


The Mqabba FC committee, quite rightly, recognized the occasion and presented Mauro with a wonderful memento to appreciate his services for the club. The defender served the club for twelve consecutive seasons, mostly in the 1st Division but also two spells in the Maltese Premiership. The player is clearly associated with Mqabba FC.


The figures speak for itself. Mauro Bonnici, aged 33, has reached a wonderful all -time record as he is the player with most appearances for Mqabba FC. The match he played with Mqabba on the last day of the 2016/17 First Division versus Lija Athletic meant his 239th official game for the club, beating the record which John-Paul Muscat set in 2013 (238 club appearances). The now retired ex-striker is still holding the all-time club goals record with 74 official goals.


There are only two more players who have reached the 200+ appearances for the club which are Kristian and Claudio Calleja. Goalkeeper Kristian, who retired, played 233 official club matches while Claudio, who left the club in January this year for Luqa St.Andrew’s, made 214 club appearances. 


Mauro had his first registration with Zurrieq FC in 1996 as a 12-year-old but joined the Hibernians FC youth nursery in 1999. In 2004, he joined Zurrieq on loan for one season and made his senior debut in the 2nd & 3rd Division Knock Out game versus Melita on 7 September 2004 (1-1). The year after he joined Mqabba FC, the first three years on loan and from September 2008 he is a permanent Mqabba player.


In that same summer, Mauro Bonnici made a quite unexpected short return for Hibernians. He made his first team debut for the club in the UEFA Intertoto Cup home match against ND Gorica from Slovenia (21 June 2008, 0-3), entering as a late substitute, his one and only match for Hibernians and in European football! A remarkable debut indeed

Saturday 9th September 2017

Presentation of a small memento to Mauro Bonnici


Before the kick off of the first league match against Zebbug R FC, Secretary Jeremy Mercieca presented a small memento to Mauro Bonnici (4), former Mqabba FC captain who joined Zebbug after a long period playing for Mqabba FC.  Presentation was held at the Centenary Stadium in the presence of Mqabba FC players and members of the administrative committee.

The Convenience Shop Summer Cup 2017
