Satgno Navarra was a popular (according to Maltatoday.com) newscaster and one of the pioneers of Maltese television (which was in the hands of the British until 1972). But he did more: he was a communications officer at the British High Commission, an English language teacher and a fighter for animal rights. Other newspapers say he was a referee association administrator, a sports journalist (writer), the general manager of the Ta' Qali Stadium, a member of the Referees Board, Referees' Match Inspector and Instructor.

Tonio Bruglio (also a former FIFA ref) wrote that Navarra had to stop his refereeing career early because of an injury (but he was at least 11 years on the intenational list).
