St. Sava Football Tournament

The sixth traditional five a side St. Sava tournament was held on the 29th January at the University grounds in Msida. It was yet again perfectly organized by Mr. Nebojsa  Mijailovic who is also the founder of the tournament.

It was the largest tournament until now and had eight participating teams.  The strong competition was won by the team named ‘’ Grobari’’, followed by ‘’St. Sava’ and ‘’Vukovici’’.

A friendly but still competitive atmosphere was created by the never tiered supporters of the ‘’ Grobari’’ team.

The final match was between ‘’ St. Sava’’ (white shirts) team who won the last three tournaments and the new comers ‘’ Grobari’’ (black shirts) team. The boys in white shirts had a better first half time and led with three goals but ‘’Grobari’’ fought back and equalised just before the final whistle.

Penalties determined the winner, when one of the white boys missed the goal post.

Trophies were presented by Mr. Mijailovic and the circulating ST. Sava’s trophy will be presented to the Capitan of ‘’ Grobari’’ team on the 10th of February 2012.

From next year St. Sava’s tournament will be under patronage of Maltese- Serbian Community.

Mr. Nebojsa Mijailovic has kindly accepted to be part of our sport subcommittee and to take the charge of future charity football tournaments.

The Sports subcommittee will be chaired by the best ever football scorer in Malta Mr. Danilo Doncic.
