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.
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.
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.

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…

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…

Both sets of spectators, and the neutrals just couldn’t believe their eyes, as the champions were brushed easily aside in this match, and tumbled to fourth place in the standings. San Giljan couldn’t get going in this derby match. They briefly answered back, from three goals down, but Neptunes then went on with a six-goal run, spanning two sessions, and the Saints were left behind. That wasn’t all, as Neptunes drove the dagger even deeper, with another five-goal spell, which took the stuffing out of the champions. San Giljan were awarded nine man ups, but converted only three of them. Neptunes were better, with four strikes from seven. Dino Zammit was missing from San Giljan’s line up, and he was sorely missed in this unexpected heavy defeat. Both sides were coming from drawn encounters, with Alan Borg Cole, in the Neptunes’ goal, being a telling factor, as he denied the champions time and time again. Read More…

It was a thrilling match between these two sides. Both sides had their moments, with rallies coming along at either end, at different parts of the encounter. Sliema earned a point from the game, as they tied the score, from a man up situation, very late in the match. San Giljan netted half of their eight man up occasions. Sliema also scored four times, but from nine man ups. San Giljan had already beaten Sirens, with Sliema also starting with a victory, over Valletta. Read More…

San Giljan continued on their good start this week, after their success in the President’s Cup, as they overcame the Sirens obstacle with a good victory, which has made them the team to beat this season. Sirens promised much at the start of the match, as they kept up the pace with their opponents, but as the game progressed in the middle sessions, the Saints were in control, as they found their opponents’ net at regular intervals, with Sirens unable to furnish any adequate reply.
