Donald Buhagiar Obituary, Former Striker of Siġġiewi And Malta Youths Has Passed Away

Donald Buhagiar Death, Obituary – Donald Buhagiar, a Siewi native, started showing off his talent in front of the goal when he was a small child. In the 1972–1973 season, at the age of just 15, he was already playing for Siewi in the Second Division.

Terrenzio Polverini, the coach of the national team, chose him to represent Malta Youths in the 1976 UEFA Young Tournament, where we were pitted against France, because of how frequently he scored goals for the club. He was still a student at the Paola Technical Institute at the time in question. In actuality, Donald Buhagiar played in both of Malta’s games against France U/18, scoring the lone goal his team required in a 3-1 home loss to the French team. Malta suffered a 1-0 loss against France in the second game.

It became important for him to travel because top teams were showing an interest in hiring him. Buhagiar was actually signed by Floriana on Friday, September 3, 1976, despite the fact that the protracted discussions prohibited him from participating in the future UEFA Cup matches against Polish sides like Wroclaw because he registered after the deadline of August 15.

This was true even if Buhagiar was unable to participate in the UEFA Cup games due to the talks. Despite this, he didn’t make his debut until a few weeks later, when he replaced Ray “au” Farrugia in the team’s 3-1 victory over Senglea Athletic as a substitute. Prior to joining Senglea Athletic in December 1984, he played 50 league games for Floriana, scoring 12 goals while doing so. He won the League in 1976–1977 and the FA Trophy in 1981.

After two years, he returned to Siiewi, his all-time favorite team, and soon proved that he had not lost any of his vigor or shooting prowess. In actuality, Donald Buhagiar led the Third Division in goals during the 1989–1990 season, his second with Siiewi. This was during that season that he was named the league’s best overall top scorer. In the course of 14 games, he scored 17 goals, including the game’s only hat trick in a 6-0 victory over Qrendi for his club, which was crucial to the team’s promotion to the Second Division.
