09.01.16 Calleja Cremona strike hands Seniors 3 Points.
After the Christmas and New Year Break, the senior squad returned to business in the BOV second division by facing opponents Kirkop United at Sirens Stadium. The first half saw Swieqi dictate the match with good tempo to their passing and fair amount of chances with the Kirkop keeper refusing to be beaten.
Kirkop started the second half with menace and started creating chances themselves. In the 63rd minute, the orange finally broke the deadlock with Patrick Briscoe White playing a beautiful through ball ahead of a speeding Calleja Cremona who easily shook off 2 challenging defenders and placing the ball in the bottom corner past the Kirkop goalkeeper. The defence made a good job of keeping the opponents attacks at bay and seeing out the team to a vital 3 points.Dean Grech and Mark Martin made their debut for the seniors squad.
