Floriana claim the 125th Anniversary Challenge Cup.
On a cloudy Saturday afternoon, on the fifth of January 2019, Floriana played against St George’s exactly as it happened one hundred twenty five years ago, this time instead of the Blue Ditch near the Portes Des Bombes in Floriana, Floriana and St Georges met at the Victor Tedesco Stadium in Hamrun to commemorate this important milestone for the Floriana club.
For this game, Floriana played with their first ever kit replica, Red and Green checked shirts with black shorts.
Both sides exchanged mementos prior to the kick off which was scheduled to be at 15:00hrs.
The Greens played well and as expected controlled well their opponents however it had to be a Tiago Galvao’s goal Floriana to beat St.Georges side at the Victor Tedesco Stadium. At the end of the match, Floriana Supporters Club representative and committee member Ryan Agius presented the 125th Anniversary Challenge Cup to the captain Clyde Borg of Floriana.
