SUFC President, Ralph Agius Fernandez, highlighted the achievements of Swieqi United FC in its short history. He thanked Kunsill Malti tal-Isports for their help with regards to turf pitches for club training and congratulated the newly formed MFA administration.

SUFC Marketing and PR Officer, Dr Justin Fenech, gave a quick overview of the SUFC Business Plan for 2011/12 – 2013/14 which included the rebranding exercise and the launch of a new website. Mr Pierre Mizzi, from Logix Communications, unveiled the new SUFC logo and explained that it encompassed all that SUFC stands for – mainly its locality and its committee that is made up of university students and university alumni.

Dr Justin Fenech continued by unveiling the designs of the new SUFC website, created by Untangled Media, and by showing visuals of the new SUFC 1st and 2nd kits, supplied by Sportika.

SUFC Head Coach, Roberto Debrincat, explained that in spite of initial difficulties related to managing a new team, hard work and enthusiasm aided SUFC in reaching a positive first season result of sixteen points in the MFA 3rd Division. In order to attain the Club’s ambition of achieving better results this year, the following players have been signed for the upcoming season: Michael Ciappara (Defender) from B’Bugia F.C.; Stacy Vella (Defender) from Msida St. Joseh F.C; Matthew Spiteri (Midfielder) from Pieta H.; Baldassare Borg (Midfielder) from Luqa St. Andrew’s; Simon Cauchi (Striker) from Luxol St. Andrew’s; Fabien Debono (Striker) from Sliema Wanderers; Andrè Azzopardi (Defender/Midfielder) from B’Kara F.C.; Steve Dimech (Defender) from Mosta F.C.; Dario Arruda (Portuguese Defender); Wymer Snijder (Dutch Midfielder/Striker); Pierre Galloiuste (French Midfielder/Striker).

MP Hon Robert Arrigo expressed his admiration towards SUFC and explained how he found the club’s enthusiasm infectious. He pledged his continuous support and encouraged others, including businesses and the Local Council of Swieqi, to do the same. He concluded by highlighting the importance of football and the creation of clubs like SUFC as catalysts for social interaction and the development of localities.

MFA CEO, Bjorn Vassallo, showcased the positive influence of having a relatively young committee and the beneficial effects that the club has had in the social sphere within its locality. He also reiterated that the MFA is willing to help Swieqi United FC and all other clubs in their quest to access improved sports facilities without the need for excessive travel.

    Mhux ahjar taghlaq halqek Trevor. Ahna ghandna players over rated?  Nahseb l-ewwel tidrisa qlajtuha intom dan il-weekend. Ahna mahnix naraw kbir bhal ma ghamel xi hadd – biex imbaghad spicca jkollu jibdel it-tim. Tal-inqas ahna ghandna vizjoni fejn irid jasal dan il-klabb mhux bhal xi hadd li sena wara sena jghid li se jirbah il-promozzjoni imbaghad jibqa’ l-art. Fuq kollox, ghal plejer li suppost ghandu esperjenza, ma kontx nistenna kumment bhal dan. Veru haqqek l-award ghal professjonalita!
