The Under 17 squad place joint second in the Age Group Winter League

The Under 17 squad  after beating Exiles and Sirens lost the matches against Neptunes and Sliema. The team coached by Sergio Afric ending on the losing end of a hotly contested match against Neptunes. A match which was characterized by some controversial refereeing as Neptunes were awarded seven penalties during this same match. 

 

 

In the final match of the league against Sliema,  San Giljan were playing without top scorer Ben Plumpton who was suspended following the Neptunes match. League champions Sliema proved superior and were indeed deserved league winners having won all their matches. The photo in caption is a post-match photo where our boys are mingled with the Sliema boys in a truly sporting moment.

This Winter League was a very good experience for the boys since most of the squad is still under age being made up of players who are still eligible to play in the Under 15 league.
