As is now tradition at HMS, on Saturday 26th September, the team gathered at St. Julian’s for the annual season-opening lunch. This year’s team building event held special significance for the club as it marked the first season of collaboration with its new main sponsor: Parthenope La Bufala Restaurant. In fact, the 2015 edition was held at Parthenope and served to welcome Manuel Marra and the rest of the team to our growing family!

To commemorate the partnership, after being served with mouth-watering appetisers and indulging in their traditional Neapolitan pizza, on behalf of all the players, club president Robert Cachia presented Mr. Marra with a personalised HMS match kit as a sign of appreciation. Following the meal, the team got immersed back into the handball environment by flocking to the University Sports Complex to enjoy the Super Cup finals together. Needless to say, all players were left geared up for the start of the season and eager to kick-start their campaign next week at the MHA Cup!
