The final league game of the season was also the final derby game of the season as we took on Oratory Youths. We had several first choice players missing and that meant a full debut for James Meilak, one of our outstanding youth players.
The Blues applied pressure in the first half, and controlled the game for long periods. But as has been the case for much of this season, we found real chances hard to come by.
The second half saw both sides tiring a little after a long season, but we scored the goal that decided the issue, and it was a fine strike too. Debutante, James Meilak, put in a dangerous cross from the right. The ball ended up at the feet of the advancing full back, Mark Buhagiar, and with his weaker right foot, he placed a precise...read more

The final round fixture against St. Lawrence began as scheduled last Friday. Predrag Djordjevic scored an excellent free kick to give the Blues a 1-0 lead. However, on 6 minutes, the floodlights failed and the game was abandoned. The fixture was rearranged and played at Kercem Stadium last night.

The final round game against current champions, Xewkija, was a must win game for them. It was also an important test for us as we will face them in the semi final of the GFA Cup.
The first half was well contested with the blues coming closest to scoring when a deflected Aji Adesina shot hit the post. But the talking point of the half came when Steve Dimech was clean through on goal with only the keeper to beat. It seemed clear that the chasing defender brought him down unfairly. The referee did not see it this way and allowed play to continue. Had the foul been given, it would have meant a red card for the defender also. It seems that these key decisions are not going our way this season.
In the second half, we can have little complaint...read more
