In order to thank the lord and also patron saint Saint Publius , coach Tony Formosa who at that time was in charge of the Floriana team took the whole squad to the Floriana Church, forty years later this group of gentleman remeet again for the St Publius feast and take the same photo again to rekindle the memories of all the Florianites memories that remember their great football skills. This team was considered and still is considered as one of the best team Malta has produced, with players like ; Anton Camilleri, John Holland (Twice winner of the Footballer of the Year Award in 1975-76 and 1977-78) , George Ciantar , George and Raymond Xuereb, Willie Vassallo  etc, it was indeed the cream of the crop !
