26.05.16 Season Review 2015/2016 - Women
After making their debut in season 2014/2015, the women’s squad faced their second season in 2015/2016 amidst some league changes by the MFA. With one team obtaining direct promotion to the first division, MFA introduced a play off spot for the team that placed 5th in the first division and the runner up in the second division.
From the beginning of the season things appeared to be a three-way horse for the top spots between Swieqi, Gozo and Hamrun. Swieqi continued to show signs of great improvements under the guidance of coach Max and coach Joe and put in a number of encouraging performances. Unfortunately three loses against Gozo gave the Gozitans top spot, with Swieqi managing to fight off Hamrun for the second place play off spot. Swieqi faced Kirkop in the play off, with an odd goal deciding the match in Kirkop’s favour.
Despite missing out on promotion, Swieqi’s ladies can still hold their heads up high for a remarkable season that they have had and for contributing towards the steady increase in popularity for Maltese female football.
