In 1983, Ġużi Fava together with a group of helpers founded Sliema Wanderers Football Nursery in Tigne. Following the sudden death of Ġużi in 1991, the nursery was led by other chairpersons always bearing same vision and principles set by Ġużi Fava.
Apart from operating in new premises, the nursery played an important role in the development of several kids and youths not only in terms of football but also socially and personally. The nursery has also invested in training its coaching staff to be in touch with the current football trends and will soon be launching a project related to a modern technical structure.
As part of the nursery’s 30th anniversary, a number of sports and social activities are scheduled to take place in the coming months. The first activities are two football matches between ex-Sliema nursery players. The games will be held on Sunday 26th May and Saturday 1st June, both played at 11.30am.
Ex-players, families, friends and supporters are invited to attend. Further details regarding the activities are available on the website www.sliemawfn.com or on the nursery’s Facebook page. An emblem commemorating the 30th anniversary was also launched – 30 years of service to kids and youths for the benefit of local football.
