tarxienAfter terminating the contract of Jacques Scerri by mutual consent, Tarxien Rainbows appointed Kevin Vella as their new coach.

Vella led Sirens to promotion from the Third Division to the Second Division as champions in 2013/14 and from the Second Division to the First Division as runners-up last season. However this summer, he was replaced by Tommaso Volpi at Sirens.

Jacuqes Scerri, formerly of Pembroke Athleta and Melita, had joined Tarxien Rainbows last season, leading them to sixth place. This year, the Rainbows were ninth at the end of the first round. However following the sacking of Steve D’Amato from the post of Hamrun coach, Scerri was one of the first coaches to be linked to the job.
