Chasetown FC are celebrating after one of their players was called up for international duty.

Christian Vassallo has been called up by Malta’s under 19 squad – the first time a Scholars player will have won international recognition.

He will go into the squad to face Scotland under 19s at Greenock Morton later this month and the young Chasetown man will be hoping to impress ahead of his country’s Under 19 European Championship qualifiers against Holland, Slovenia and Slovakia.

Christian is one of only two members of the squad playing his football outside of Malta. Th other is James Paris from Italian side Brescia.

A spokesperson for The Scholars said:

“Everybody at Chasetown wishes to congratulate Christian on this magnificant achievement.”
