DINGLI and MOSTA are the new champions of their respective division, a title well deserved by both.

Dingli in their  last game  against MELITA gave a football demostration, an attacing side, very attractive. They dominated all out and put their opponents in a difficult situation to avoid relegation. DINGLI were the most consisent side throughout the season. They lost only one game, and this was  after  series of 12 games.  For DINGLI this is their second championship  they won.  The first was three seasons ago when they were still known as DESANA VINTAGE. Nobody argue the fact that when they registered  the services of  ex B'Kara player Gareth Sciberras the team was  now complete in all departments. Gareth is an all rounder for Masters Football, well experienced. He is at his best  in the middle where he dominates, inspiring his colleagues. He knows well when he has tp help his teamates in attack and he is also alert when there is an opportunity to score goals. The team in such a form, is also  being considered by many  to win the last honour, the KONICA Masters Knock Out. MELITA  did their best but could not match their opponents and were well beaten 14-5.


From the same MAPFRE/MSV Life MASTERS PREMIER LEAGUE, the relegation struggle is still going on with four teams imvolved. We have to wait until the last games to determine which two teams will be relegated. VALLETTA are playng well and is excellent. This was shown in their game agasinsd t MELITA winnning  8-4. The first half was well balancd and finished 1-1, but in the  second half Valletta played some excellent moves with Nikolai Filipov being the protoganist, and they controlled so well that they were in trouble of losing the game.  The introducation of some experienced players made all the difference in the team. Melita again disappointed and were now so different, even though Michael Galea  again being his usual self, scoring four.

In the CISK MASTERS DIVISION ON LEAGUE, MOSTA SHAGGY made sure of winning the championships after beating TAL-QROQQ 7-5. Mosta Shaggys  when being at full strenght, they can beat everybody even teams from the Premier Division where they  wil return next season. Even tough lately they lost some of their superiority , ingeneral they deserved the honour. They were  the most consistent throughout  the season.  Tal-Qroqq started well taking a  two goal lead, both scored by their talented dangerous forward Carlo Leonardi. But Mosta with some experienced players were determined to make sure of winning and came back srongly and changed the score to 3-2 in their favour. After the break TAL-QROQQ  got level and somehow lead 4-3 but Mosta made a strsong reaction to score four consecutive goals to win three precious points to make sure of being champions and return to Premier football.
