Andrew Paris has been confirmed as president of Exiles Sports Club. Paris will continue to head the club’s management committee for season 2012/13 which was formed recently.
The other members of the Exiles committee are: Kevin Camilleri (vice-president); Peter Sullivan (secretary); Adrian Farrugia (treasurer); Anton Gambina (PRO); Sandro Caruana (assistant secretary); Michael Paris (asst. treasurer); Francis Pace Lupi, Mark Vassallo, Karol Farrugia and Stephen Muscat (members).
The new committee of the Sliema-based club has drawn up a mission statement which states: “Exiles is a growing, friendly club and it endeavours to create a relaxed yet orderly atmosphere which enables its swimming youngsters, junior and senior waterpolo players, coaches and club members to take pleasure from their association with the club.
“Our aim and pride is only to get better.”
Besides discussing various motions at its first meeting for the year, held recently at the club’s new foreshore premises in Sliema, the committee unanimously agreed to nominate a charity for the year 2013 to whom Exiles will regularly contribute funds, raised through its own fund-raising efforts and club membership income.
It was also announced that John Paris, who started his waterpolo career with Exiles, has been appointed assistant coach to the senior waterpolo team. He will be assisting head coach Aurelien Cousin.
