The Committee of San Giljan ASC Salini Resort would like to confirm that it is in final negotiations with Club Vojvodina of Serbia for 3 of its senior squad players to join the club in the next few days to become part of their squad. Club Vojvodina is a leading club in the First Division of the Serbian League and also in the Adriatic League.
This was made possible by the work done over the years by the committee of San Giljan ASC, Coach Marko Orlovic and the players themselves that have worked hard over the years to continue improving and achieving and their families for their support.
Matthias is a product of the youth nursery that over the last years has seen success with a number of players. The Club recognises that it needs to continue to invest in its youth system to continue to bring success to the club.
Matthias will also be shortly leaving to start a new adventure by joining three other fellow players at Club Vojvodina to train with their youth categories. We are sure that this experience will benefit both Matthias and the Club.
Matthias said, “I am happy to commit my future to San Giljan and thrilled that I am being given this oppprtunity to train with a big club overseas. I wish to thank the club for giving me this opportunity and my parents for their continued support”
Our junior teams made it a memorable double by winning the Under 20 and 17 Age Group Leagues. Both teams won handsomely showing some great waterpolo. The Under 17 won the league unbeaten as both Age Group Teams managed to obtain remarkable wins such as the double win at Neptunes pitch vs hosts Neptunes which proved to be decisive in the run-up to the respective league victories.

The champions retained the honour they won last season, winning the Knock-Out competition for a total of nine times. They had to go into extra time before they could claim victory. As it was, they seemed done and dusted at the start of the last quarter when they had gone four goals in front for the third time in the match, but Neptunes came storming back to level the score just five seconds from normal time, with a goal from their stalwart captain Niki Lanzon. Undaunted, the Saints went back ahead, and this time they leasted the pace to emerge winners to tune in exactly to their feast day, being celebrated today. 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…
