Clubs history

SUFC Season 2011-2012

Swieqi United began the 2011–12 season with a new manager – Roland Sollars who joined the club from Sirens. Swieqi made some major changes to the team and brought in many young players many of which came on loan from Melita F.C. The team was knocked out by eventual Gozitan champions Xewkija Tigers in the first round of the FA Trophy losing 0–5.

The league campaign had started with a draw against Fgura United (2–2), before losing to Ghaxaq and Santa Lucija. Thereupon, Swieqi embarked on a positive run beating Xghajra and Mgarr. A slump in fortunes then followed, although Swieqi did register some positive results during the season such as a 3–1 victory against title challengers Ghaxaq, a 6–2 win vs Kalkara and a 0–0 draw against eventual section winners Pembroke Athleta. Swieqi finished the season in 9th place with 29 points.

Steven Diacono (on loan from Melita) won Swieqi United’s ‘Player of the Season Award’
