SUFC Season 2015-2016

The 2015–16 season would prove to be a very challenging and tough campaign for the Orange. Under the guidance of new Manager Billy Mock, Swieqi sought to revamp their youth policy and promote minors players for the first team. Nevertheless, with a reduced budget and entirely new coaching staff, Swieqi struggled for much of the Second Division campaign but did manage to survive when they decisively beat Kirkop United 2–0 in the penultimate game of the season. Throughout the year, 10 minors players managed to make their first team debut.

The Youth (Under-19) League campaign was very positive. The Minors managed to finish in 3rd place in their maiden season in Section D. Under the astute management of Rodney Bugeja and Gilbert Micallef, the squad managed to end the season on a high after a slow start. The Minors managed to wrap up some decisive wins most notably beating Gzira 4–0, Santa Venera 2–1 and Zurrieq 7–2. This was also the first year that the Under 17s debuted in Section B. Despite enduring a very difficult campaign (finishing bottom of their section), the Orange still performed bravely throughout all encounters and registered some positive results such as 2–2 draw v Kirkop and a 0–2 loss vs Valletta.

The Women’s Team were also quite successful and went agonizingly close to winning promotion to the Women’s Premier Division. Finishing second in 2nd Division after Gozo F.C., Swieqi’s Women’s team lost the play-off encounter vs Kirkop 0–1 at the Centenary Stadium. Despite the disappointment, the team could still take great pride in their achievements (having only been formed 2 years ago).

Finally, the Futsal team also did Swieqi proud ending up in the Maltese Futsal Elite Division!
