The champions swept over another obstacle, in their quest to defend the league title won last season. They are now just a point behind the leaders, Neptunes, and their encounter, next Tuesday, grows in importance. Once more they had a comfortable victory over the Blues, as they won all four sessions of play, with the one after the interval being the decisive one, when San Giljan struck three times without any reply from Sliema. The same Sliema made it more difficult for themselves, as they squandered all of their five man ups, during the game. The Saints had a favourable tally, scoring four times from their seven man ups. Peter Borg was back in the champions’ side, after missing their last encounter. Sliema had changes in their line up. Jerome Gabarretta was missing, his place taken by Liam Galea. Kai Dowling returned, but Nicky Bugelli was missing, and Sliema also included Jamie Gambin, with no custodian cover, as Zach Sciberras was absent. Read More…

This initiative forms part of a wider strategy that intends to provide our youths with a holistic development which seeks to develop the entire personality of our juniors rather than merely focusing on the development of their waterpolo skills.
Just days after the Club President’s appeal for more active participation in the Club, Mr. Randolph Cauchi and his family as owners of Ristorante dell’Arte in M’xlokk have come forward with a generous donation to be invested in our junior categories. The Club thanks Ristorante dell’Arte for their fantastic gesture. This is a fantastic example of what may be achieved if we pull the same rope together.
If there is any way you can help the club please contact any committee member of your choice and pay up your family memberships or enquire on how you can make the difference too. Every help counts whether it’s paying the membership, introducing a sponsor or merely booking a table at the next fundraising event.

The Saints added another honour, after the Winter league title, beating Neptunes 6-5 in the President’s Cup. That makes it four consecutive honours, after the double won last season. They now need another double to emulate the Sliema side that managed to win all the four honours in one season, in the 1990s, but the Saints are well on their way to achieve this end. Read More…
