Many exciting changes are happening at our football school next season.

Our priority is the restructuring of the technical and coaching setup, where we will be making the necessary changes and improvements and elevate our football school to a better level.

To head this important change we are appointing coach Brian Bartolo as our new Technical Director.

During this time he attended two FIFA Courses, and also courses in Football Fitness, IT in Football and a UEFA Grassroots course held in Manchester (attended also by the likes of Rinus Michels, Sir Alex Ferguson, Steve McClaren, Joe Jordan, Andoni Zubizarreta amongmany others).The ‘UEFA Pro-Licence Course’ brought him the opportunity to spend 4 days at the UEFA Headquarters in Nyon together with participants from four other countries, 5 days of workexperience with Novara FC (Serie B) and another 4 days at the Belgian National Teams Headquarters together with their Technical Director Kris Van Der Haegen and their national team coach Roberto Martinez.

His coaching experience included stints in the Malta FA Technical setup, with, Qormi FC and Marsa FC as head coach, Pieta Hotspurs YN, Rabat Ajax as the youth team and assistant senior team coach, and with our club as a youth team and senior team coach.
