Lija held by Swieqi

02/04/2016 Uncategorized

Lija failed to collect the three points, earning just a point in a 2-2 draw against a resilient Swieqi side. This match had all the makings of an intriguing affair although everything was decided for the play-off spots. With eight points separating Lija and the fifth-placed Swieqi, neither side wanted to leave the Corradino Pavillion empty-handed. Both teams had a lot of players missing in their squad, most remarkably Lija who couldn’t rely on Endrit Kaca and Ebrahim Massoudi. Four goals were scored in an entertaining encounter between two teams who had one goal in common – attacking futsal. It was a fair outcome to a match characterised by an inspiring Fredrik Johansson who pushed forward Swieqi to some lethal counter attacks and Lija who threw away some golden opportunities to win the contest. Swieqi showed remarkable spirit to hit back twice through a brace from Johansson after two strikes Read the full article…

Sirens FC: Team Spirit

11/10/2013 Uncategorized

Sirens FC, a team made up of former Qormi players, started their adventure back in 2010, when Patrick Barbara and Kenneth Zammit were contacted by the Sirens committee officials to take charge of the team.  Coached by Anthony Cachia, the team placed in the play offs for two consecutive years. Matches in Corradino were tough, due to the fact that training sessions were carried out on an artificial outdoor pitch in contrast with the indoor one. This year’s objective is to place amongst the top five teams, even though there are a number of players who are new to the game of futsal. This team is made up of a group of friends that have been playing football since the days of Qormi Under 14s, under the direction of the same coach, Anthony Cachia, who has been a father figure for us. Football has always brought us together, as friends Read the full article…

Vittoriosa Stars: Together

08/10/2013 Uncategorized

  Vittoriosa Futsal Club has been competing in the Futsal league for 5 years now. The first 3 years we were known as Paola Stars, while last year in the summer of 2012 we joined Vittoriosa Football Club and started competing under their name in the Futsal League. Like most of the teams in the FMA, we started out as a group of friends wanting to compete in the futsal league, however we always had a long term plan that we wanted to complete. It’s impossible not to mention Efrem Ebejer as one of the catalysts for the success of this club especially at the introductory stage and also our long standing coach Francesco Ronsisvalle who most definitely without him we wouldn’t be competing in the premier division and Vittoriosa Futsal Club wouldn’t be the success story it is today. This year due to some shortcomings in the FMA, instead Read the full article…

Qormi FC Futsal – There is no “I” in team

08/10/2013 Uncategorized

Qormi FC Futsal – “There is no “I” in team”   Our team was registered for the first time with the Malta Football Association to participate in the Futsal League on the 25th September 2006. The team was named Tal-Werqa SG due to the fact that it was formed with the assistance of Tal-Werqa Band Club St. George Qormi.   When the Futsal Malta Association took over in 2012 and the league was restructured, Tal-Werqa Futsal naturally amalgamated with Qormi FC.   Since 2006 we always participated in the national futsal league and year after year our aim was to improved the squad and achieve promotion to the Premier Division.   Our aim was attained last season as we finished joint leaders with San Gwann in the FXDD Futsal First Division league but got promoted as the second placed team after losing a league decider.   Our target this season Read the full article…

Luqa St.Andrew’s: Teamwork & Experience

08/10/2013 Uncategorized

Born from a dream and officially set up in 2011, Luqa St. Andrew’s Futsal came a long way since the idea was first conceived by a group of friends with pioneer leaders Andrew Scerri and Karl Micallef. During a Mid-Summer night out having the usual beer the leaders came up with the idea of setting up a futsal team to officially brand the group of friends under the name of Scrimmage FC, allowing its members to practice their favourite sport. Formed as a Club to compete in the national futsal league under the MFA (Malta Football Association), the team had to quickly evolve since the Club had heard through the grapevine of the intended setup under a new Association. Taking a pro-active approach with the view of anticipating the new rules and regulations that now govern the competitions on a national level under the newly set up FMA (Futsal Malta Read the full article…

Luxol: Commitment and Respect

08/10/2013 Uncategorized

A group of friends got together to play Futsal when they still had a full head of hair and no family commitments. This group played their first debuting match in the Malta Football Association (MFA) – Futsal leagues under the name of Amazon in 1998. The team played for fun and looked at a match with the perspective of a fitness session. A win or a loss was both celebrated either as a success or an opportunity to learn.   In 2004 Amazon decided to affiliate itself with a Club and Luxol gladly took this team under its wing. Since a Club like Luxol believed in this team, Amazon felt they had to prove they were worthy of Luxol’s support. Training sessions where beefed up and nowadays the team trains twice or three times weekly and furthermore to improve the level, the team has engaged Mr Florin Anton as a Read the full article…
