Frank Salt Real Estate have confirmed their sponsorship of Sliema ASC for the 2015 waterpolo season. Grahame Salt, director of the Frank Salt Real Estate Group, signed the sponsorship agreement with Dr. Frank Testa, the Sliema ASC President in the presence of Darren Saliba, Sliema ASC Secretary.
President Frank Testa said he was very happy to see Frank Salt Real Estate committed to help Sliema ASC challenge for Malta’s top water polo honours and he believes that the ongoing co-operation with Malta’s leading Real Estate company will be mutually beneficial to both parties. He commented that a team such as Sliema always aspires to be at the top of the game, and this year will be no different. “This is why the backing of a strong partner like Frank Salt Real Estate is crucial to fulfilling such aspirations.” stated Dr Testa. “Besides the much needed financial support, this collaboration instills a sense of pride in the club given the excellence that distinguishes this company, a standard that has also been synonymous with the most decorated aquatic sport club in Malta.”
On the other hand Grahame Salt said that sponsoring Malta’s most decorated waterpolo team was something the Frank Salt Real Estate Group was proud of. “Sports activity is an extremely important element of any society. Water polo is one of the most followed sports in Malta and this is our way of endorsing the club and giving something back. We wish the team the best of luck and hope they shall win the honours this year!”
Sliema Frank Salt Real Estate will this year be fielding two new foreign players. Michael Bodegas, 28 year old French National Team Captain and 23 year old Serbian International Nikola Dedovic are both new to the local water polo scene but both have had very good seasons, with Bodegas only losing out for the league Championship in Italy in the final with his team Brescia against Pro Recco, while Dedovic was Champions League Group A top scorer with last year’s runners up Radnicki. This follows the recent addition of local player Kai Dowling, having captured the young talented player from San Giljan. Dowling signed a 6-year contract with his new club, and follows in the footsteps of his father Kurt, who had formed part of the successful Sliema side in the late 90s.
