Antoine Busuttil | November 4th, 2013 | Comments Off on Cottonera nurseries complete merger
The second phase of the merger of the Cottonera nurseries into Cottonera United Youth Nursery has started. Details were revealed by Cottonera United president Stephen Spiteri during a press conference at the premises of the Senglea Nursery which is now also the premises of the Cottonera United Nursery.
Spiteri explained the problem clubs in the Cottonera region are facing due to the minimal growth of the population and the decreasing number of children and youths in the Three Cities. He explained that four years ago, the three Cottonera nurseries were challenged with massive problems due to the lack of players in the Under-15 and Under-17 section. This led to the creation of the Cottonera United Youth Nursery as Senglea Nursery, Vittoriosa Stars and St. George’s did not have enough players to participate in the Youth FA leagues. If no action had been taken at that time, these nurseries would have lost all their players and Cottonera would have remained without any active team in the region.
