San Giljan were crowned waterpolo winter league champions for the second time in the club’s history. The first time was in 1995.
In a decider for the championship, the Saints had the better of Sliema with an 11-8 score, avenging the 7-6 defeat of last Sunday which enabled the Blues to force the decider. Their hero was Dino Zammit, who scored no fewer than five goals. Read More…
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 Club is investing money in the clubhouse this year as all the showers and toilets will be changed to give Club members the facilities they deserve. The refurbishment is being done at the Club’s expense and the costs are very high since the works will consist of removing the existing toilets and showers and they will be replaced with top quality materials and fittings rather than a quick face lift to the existing facilities.
All training sessions will be held at the National Pool, Tal-Qroqq. All sessions will be conducted by qualified swimming coaches to ensure personal attention to those who need it most. Swimming basic techniques and strokes will also be provided. Sessions will be held on Sundays at 9am. All kids that can swim unaided are invited to join.
All those parents who are interested to enrol their children may apply and obtain more information from email address firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling on 79416976.

Waterpolo and swimming sessions will be held at the National Pool, Tal-Qroqq . Waterpolo sessions will be on a Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning while swimming sessions are held on weekdays at 5pm. Times will be confirmed as soon as these are issued by the National Pool Management.
Moreover, kids are being introduced to other sports such as handball that are conducive to the development of waterpolo skills.
The San Giljan squad that this Sunday will be facing Sliema for the opening Winter League match will include two new players. The first one to join was Clint Mercieca who joined San Giljan from Neptunes soon after the end of last season. Clint is an experienced player with several years in the national team and also a winner of several league title with his former club. The second signing is Dean Camilleri, a home grown San Giljan goal-keeper who is back to our Club after playing for one season with Valletta. In his case it’s a welcome back while we welcome Clint and we wish both the best of luck as we trust that both will be instrumental to help the Club achieve its ambitious objectives.
Igor will be the assistant to Marko Orlovic in senior squad training and matches and will be the Coach for the Under 15 and Under 17 categories in summer.
Igor was personally hand-picked by the Club following a recommendation of Head Coach Marko Orlovic. Igor was assistant coach with Marko at Vojvodina before Marko moved to San Giljan ASC.
We look forward to welcoming Igor to the Club confident that his experience will be useful to the youth sector in particular. Igor’s engagement is another clear sign of the importance that the Club gives its youth sector and its youths generally.

San Giljan moved closer to winning the winter league for the first time since 1995 when they roundly defeated Neptunes Grimaldi 15-8 in a one sided encounter. After a five-goal burst in the first session, Neptunes attempted a comeback in the second session but San Giljan remained ahead comfortably and upped the tempo again in the final quarter to keep up their 100 per cent record. A draw against Sliema would now be enough for the Saints to win the winter league. San Giljan ASC opened up a sizeable advantage in the first session, winning it 5-1. Matthew Zammit opened the score with Timmy Agius making it 1-1 but Zammit and Clint Mercieca divided four goals between them without reply. Neptunes went closer to their adversaries in the second session, scoring three goals through Niki Lanzon and Jeremy Abela but Paul Fava and Dino Zammit restored a two-goal advantage at the interval after Jordan Camilleri made it 5-7. However the fourth session saw San Giljan trounce Neptunes 5-1 again with Peter Borg, Matthew Zammit, Mercieca, Dino Zammit and Cousin again getting on the scoresheet for a final score of 15-8 in their favour.
