Press Release:San Giljan ASC win Under 15 Winter League

San Giljan won the Under 15 Winter League after ending up winners of a
round robin decider tournament which also involved Sirens and
Sliema.This is a great success for the Club’s junior sector and indeed
for the whole Club which had been chasing a junior title for quite a
while after the revamp of the junior sector 3 years ago. This sector
has gone quite a long way and intends building on this success to be
among the protagonists in local waterpolo.
All the boys and their coaches are highly praiseworthy for this
success which witnesses the sterling work that was done in the last
three years.
In the meantime the Under 17 team of the Club finished the Under 17
Winter League as runners-up . This is a remarkable result considering
that all players of the squad are under sixteens with several players
who are even younger. Moreover, the senior players that make up the
squad, played this league while undergoing very intensive land
training with the senior team.
Another positive aspect in both leagues was the introduction of new
faces namely goaler Daniel Spiteri and players Ben Plumpton and Darren
Zammit who all seem to have integrated very well with the rest of the
team. In the final part of the leagues both age groups were
strengthemed by the inclusion of player Anthony Bugeja who was
returning from a two month  training stage in Hungary.
All in all a very positive first part of the season for all the squad
which besides playing in the Winter League also trained very hard
during training sessions where the attendance by the boys was also
very encouraging. The teams were being coached by Kurt Dowling and
Dean Camilleri while Club head coach Karl Izzo was always watching
proceedings very closely and was in constant communication with the
coaching staff and administration of the junior teams.
