The Under 15 Summer League has come to an end It has been somewhat of a roller-coaster season due to the known circumstances. The year kicked off on a high with the Palermo training camp which was held just in time before the Covid19 outbreak. This group, ably coached by Zarko Petrovic has worked very hard, often in adverse circumstances. Despite some disappointing results, the boys still managed to place joint first in the B group We look forward to see this sector grow further as most will still be eligible to play in the same age group next year. The future is now! #OurFuture#OneFamily#StrongerTogether#SanGiljanASC#OurBoys#NeverGiveUp#U15s
