Shaun Bajada was born on 19 August 1983 and is another Birkirkara FC player who plays for the National Squad.
Shaun is a Floriana FC product and in fact it was the 'Greens' who gave him a chance to play in the Premier Division back in the 2000-2001 season when he was still just 17 years old.
Shaun spent four seasons with Floriana FC during which he made no less than 48 appearances and scored three goals for the 'Greens' before he was transferred to Marsaxlokk.
After signing for Marsaxlokk on January 22nd 2005, Shaun made 43 appearances and scored six goals.
In January 2007, Shaun was loaned out to Msida SJ till the end of the same season where he made just 11 appearances and scored only a single goal.
In the Summer Transfer Market 2007, Shaun Bajada was Birkirkara FC's main target. 'The Stripes' managed to acquire this player by swapping defender William Camenzuli with Shaun Bajada.
At an International Level, his career has been successful too. He formed part of the Under 16 National Squad, Under 19 National Squad and then the Under 21 National Squad.
Then, during his first season with Birkirkara FC in the 2007-2008 season, Shaun was called up to join the National Squad.
During the same season, Shaun managed to win the first U*BET FA Trophy for 'The Stripes' by beating Hamrun Spartans 2-1. It was a special trophy for Shaun as both of the goals were assisted by him which contributed to winning the 4th U*BET FA Trophy in Birkirkara's history.
In the 2008-2009 season, Shaun once again was able to show off his quality by perfect passes and superb free kicks which were often impossible for any goaler to save. Although this was not the best season for 'The Stripes' still, Shaun contributed enough for 'The Stripes' to make it to 3rd place which means the 1st qualifying round of the Europa League.
The 2009-2010 season was another special season for Birkirkara and Shaun himself. 'The Stripes' managed to achieve the 3rd Premier League Champions title in the last ten years, while on a personal note, Shaun was the one to score what might be considered to be the most important goal of last season, in the match of the last round against Tarxien Rainbows. This solitary goal was enough to win the match, and for 'The Stripes' to be declared champions for the third time.
In Summer 2010, Shaun signs for 'The Stripes' for another two years which will make him a Birkirkara player till the end of the 2011-2012 season.
The 2010-2011 season could be described as the opposite of the 2009-2010 season as in this season Shaun Bajada disappointed with his below averages performances. He definitely did not reach the previous season's performances when he had been extremely important for the Birkirkara squad when it won the title.
In these season he made 17 appearances and in 15 matches he was in the starting line-up, while in the other two matches he was included as a substitute. He failed to score any goals.
The 2011-2012 season was also not one of the best for Shaun Bajada as he failed to reach the expected level although in some matches; however there was a slight improvement from last season's performances. After suffering an ankle injury, Shaun was ruled-out injured for several months.
In the Premier League, he made 17 appearances, in which he began 16 and was included as a substitute once. He managed to score two goals in the Premier League when he scored a brace in the 3-1 win over Tarxien Rainbows which was played on the 18 February. In that match, he was also voted as the man of the match.
