The latest results in the MAPFR/MSV Life MASTERS PREMIER LEAGUE, put DINGLI DESANA  in an ideal position in first place in the standings.  In their last game they showed their potential and were  confident enough in what they were doing. A better team has yet to emerge to stop them from being champions for the second time in the history of Masters Football in Malta. For the third time they met their  sporting  rivals MARSA WHITE STARS this season, winning twice and one draw. These results showed clearly who is the better team.  In the latest results  DINGLI beat their opponents heavily 9-1 to remain unbeaten. It is a team well geaared  for honours with players of great experience,  one of them Carlo Mamo who lately was voted as the PLAYER OF THE MONTH, for Janury 2019. Simon Shead was again in good form and could not be stopped.  His speed with the ball and goal abilites are great and agaisnt Marsa scored no less than six goals.  He is leading the best scorers list with a good advantage and a  total of 32.  Gareth Sciberras is also in great form and  contributing in no small manner in the success of the team.


In another game RABAT registered their third win so far and they now stand  above VALETTA in their last two positions in the standings. Their efforts and  the results they achieved lately, raised hope that they are  on the move to avoid relegation.

They had a lead  of 2-0 at the end of the first half and kept the same pace after to score another four.   In between Wardija had some good moves and scored twica, but Rabat soon reacted to make sure of getting three important points. Their  best on the day  was they played good as a team, and got the result.  With such enthusiasm they will progress further.
