Balzan FC is pleased to announce that left back Gary Camilleri who plays for Balzan FC and Malta’s under 19 team has been selected to trial with Red Star’s under 19 squad in Belgrade for a week from 6th to 13th August. Gary will also play with Red Star’s under 19 team in 2 friendlies that week.

Club President Anton Tagliaferro said Gary’s trial with Red Star Belgrade was part of the exclusive exchange agreement signed last month between the 2 clubs.

Ludvic Bartolo Balzan’s Technical Director said ” Gary is a very dedicated and promisiing player – he has improved greatly as a player in the last few years at the Balzan Academy and we certainly think he has great potential as a player. I would like to thank Vlad for putting us in touch with Milan Lesnjak, Red Star’s under 19 coach and Red Star’s Academy Director Dragan Mladenovic.”

Sporting Director Vladimir Simovic added ” The standard of Red Star under 19 team is very high – as evidenced by Serbia’s winning of the under 20 World Cup in the Final vs Brazil only a couple of years ago. Having said this Gary is a very good player and I am sure he can do well there. We continue to look to broaden our relationship with Red Star and we will be announcing further moves in this regard in coming weeks.”
