On Sunday 18th, Qormi 1st team faced Rabat in the Challenge cup Semi final. Qormi played a very good match and managed to pass to the final with an impressive 4-2 win.
On the day Qormi had on the bench Thomas DeGiovanni, the 16s team skipper. This was his second match for the seniors after making his debut in the group match vs White Hart. In the middle of the 2nd half he went on the pitch in an atacking midfield role, and after just a few minutes ha made a real impact with making a desicive pass to Jonathan Borg, that went around the keeper and put Qormi 3-1 upfront.
However a few minutes later Borg passed a perfect pass to DeGiovanni that flicked the ball over the rushing out Rabat keeper for the 4-1 lead. This was his 1st goal on senior level.
DeGiovanni is not the only nursery player that this season played for the sniors. In fact Luke Brincat also made his debut against White Hart in the Challenge Cup group stage.
Both players together with Zachary DeGiovanni and Charlo Sammut joined this season our senior 1st team after they took very valuable experience with White Hart on a season long loan last season. These players all are coming from our nursery setup and this should encourage the young players in our Nursery to do their utmost and emulate the achievemnts of these 4 players.
Well done to all four of you.
