Hotsticks ended their Under-16 commitments with a comfortable win against Young Stars. Although it was a one-sided affair, the Sliema side only managed to open the score in the second half through a solo effort by Plaehn. Portelli doubled from a fine shortcorner move and Plaehn made it three few minutes later. The same pair added another goal each to their account, whilst it was Grech and the debuting Amore to make it 8-0. In the dying minutes of the match Cacopardo scored a deserved brace to mark his positive performance.

Sliema Hotsticks placed second in this category. Steve Portelli ended as top scorer of the team with 14 goals followed by Stefano Schembri and Dario Cacopardo with 10 goals each. They had a very positive campaign, the youths showed commitment and this augurs well for the future of the club. In fact many of the players already form part of the senior squad. Last, but not least, a special thanks to coach David Housley and his assistant Steve Portelli who had a dual role with this team.
