Kercem Ajax vs Saint Lawrence Spurs
St Lawrence Spurs, who had player-coach Michael Vella missing due to suspension, confirmed their excellent moment of form and defeated Kercem Ajax in the penultimate match of the second round for the two sides. St Lawrence’s win was well deserved as they resisted during a difficult patch during the first period and produced a determined reaction after the break where they managed to turn a defeat into a victory. The protagonist for St Lawrence was once again William Barbosa who scored the three goals for his side. Barbosa’s deployment in attack supported by the determination of all the other players have been the key factor which transformed St Lawrence from a side struggling against the bottom places to a competitive team that is now occupying a deserved safe mid-table position. On the other hand Kercem Ajax had a disappointing performance especially when considering that they are among the top teams at the moment in Gozitan football. Kercem, who were once again without Karol Mifsud, Malcolm Vella and Andrew Mizzi due to an injury also had Jean Paul Mizzi missing due to a suspension. The Ajax had a good performance during the first half and also managed to end the first part of the match with a one-goal lead. However, Kercem were probably overconfident during the second period and were surprised by St Lawrence’s effective play so that they ended up suffering three goals which decided the issue.

Kercem Ajax vs Xewkija Tigers
Xewkija Tigers managed to obtain the full points from their match against Kercem Ajax so that they re-established the three point gap from the current leaders Nadur Youngsters just before the direct clash of the second round. As expected this was a difficult match for Xewkija as they had all the pressure to win the encounter and were also facing Kercem without the service of Daniel Bogdanovic due to a suspension and other players who were very prudent in their play to avoid injuries and yellow cards that would lead to suspensions for the most important match of the championship against Nadur. At the end all these factors conditioned Xewkija as they suffered Kercem’s play during the first period and also had Kenneth Mercieca sent out for dissent minutes before half time. After the break Xewkija showed all the determination and quality in imposing their play and turned a defeat into a deserved win with two goals scored by John Camilleri and another one by his elder brother Chris.

Kercem Ajax vs Nadur Youngsters
Nadur Youngsters continued to express their superiority in the championship in the match against Kercem Ajax where they managed to obtain the full points for the tenth time despite facing some difficult moments. For this match Kercem were with a depleted side mainly due to the injuries sustained by strikers Andrew Mizzi and Anderson Riberio. However Nadur found it difficult particularly during the first half hour of play to impose their play and had to wait until the last minute of the first half to open the score. Nadur made good use of their experience after the break as they administered the lead and managed to make sure of the full points at stake with a second goal that arrived midway through the second half. Kercem could have surprised the more quoted opponents during the opening stages of the match but as time passed by they became very weak in attack and Nadur’s keeper was not called to make difficult interventions.

Kercem Ajax VS Victoria Hotspurs
Victoria Hotspurs extended their good moment of form and obtained three deserved points from a win over Kercem Ajax.

Kercem Ajax VS SKVW
Kercem Ajax prolonged their positive moment in the championship with a 3-2 win over SK Victoria Wanderers. The match was well contested and the final score remained uncertain until the final moments as both sides had phases where they prevailed over their opponents. Kercem found it extremely difficult to score during the first period and ended up the first half trailing by one goal. However, the Ajax increased their efforts after the break and scored three goals so that they had a comfortable lead to defend until the end of the encounter. With this result the Ajax consolidated their position with the top three teams of the championship and obtained the decisive points which practically put them within the championship pool for the second phase of the championship. On the other hand the Wanderers seemed determined to earning something from this match not only to make up for the defeat conceded with the same score in the match of the first round but above all to obtain points to get away from the relegation zone. The Wanderers had an encouraging start but committed decisive mistakes particularly midway through the second period where they compromised the final score. The Wanderers, who scored the first goals after five consecutive matches, could have scored a dramatic equalizer seconds from the final whistle but a free kick by debutant Kalin Ganchev was stopped by the crossbar....

Kercem Ajax VS Oratory Youths
The match between Oratory Youths and Kercem Ajax confirmed that these two sides produce good play and that they both deserve to be among the top teams in the category. The match was quite balanced for the first hour of play where both Oratory and Kercem produced some good scoring opportunity. Kercem managed to clinch the victory through the experience of their prolific striker Anderson Ribeiro who surprised Oratory’s rearguard midway through the second period and scored the second goal for his side. The episode was a turning point to the encounter as the Youths did not manage to recover but ended up conceding a third goal on the strike of regular time. With this result Kercem consolidated their position in the upper half of the table while Oratory are now under pressure from the other teams occupying the mid-table positions...

Oratory, who were finalists in the last edition of the competition, earned qualification with a victory with the odd goal from three. Oratory’s win matured with a good performance during eh second half of the encounter as Kercem were in a better shape during eh first half. The Ajax created the better scoring opportunities during the opening forty five minutes of the encounter but they only managed to take a lead from an own goal that arrived mid-way through the first half.

Kercem Ajax VS SKVW in GFA Cup Match.
The match between two sides from the top flight, Kercem Ajax and SK Victoria Wanderers, turned out into an interesting encounter that was decided with two goals scored during the final stages of the encounter. Both Kercem and Victoria gave more playing time to some players who usually spend their time on the reserves bench, but the players from the two sides showed that they are determined to earn a place in the starting line-ups. The Wanderers expressed the better play particularly during the first hour of play but suffered when they had to substitute midfielder Joseph Refalo due to an injury. On the other hand Kercem confirmed the strength of their defensive department which denied Victoria from converting their play into scoring opportunities. At the end Kercem clinched the victory through the experience of striker Anderson Ribeiro who made all the difference by scoring the goals which decided the encounter.....

Kercem Ajax VS Sannat Lions
Kercem Ajax as expected earned the full points at stake from their match against bottom placed Sannat Lions and also took advantage of Oratory’s result who were held to a draw so that they are now occupying the third place on the table by themselves. Kercem’s win arrived through two goals scored during the first part of the second period as they found it more difficult than expected to put their minds at rest at an early stage of the encounter. In this match Sannat could have at least earned a point but they were weak in their finishing and only managed to score one goal when there was no time left to save the result. In addition, with this result Sannat ended the first round without a victory in the championship.....

Beyond Boundaries is an Erasmus+ programme enhancing youth mobility between two organisations in different European countries. Kercem Ajax Football Club from Gozo, Malta and New College Lanarkshire from Scotland United Kingdom will be working on a joint programme of activities that promote a healthier lifestyle through sports. This programme is co founded by the European Union.
This programme offers ten youths from Gozo to interact with another group of ten young people from a different country to meet together at the chosen country and learn about each other’s cultures, share experiences, work as a team and share and accept each other’s ideas through the sports medium. By this intercultural exchange, travelling to a larger country, our youths will meet peers with different social and cultural background. By organizing joint activities all the youths will share common interests, thus allowing them to experience Europe and gain a deeper understanding of what life is like for other young European citizens.
As European participants the project aims to involve the youths in shaping the Union’s future and provide a sense of belonging to an active European citizenship.
The youths will communicate and share their experiences and activities through a Facebook page. These include preparatory activities such as the First Aid course, voluntary works, fundraising activities and other meetings. In the meantime, the youths from Lanarkshire will also prepare an activity programme for the ten days spent in Scotland. Eventually both groups will work together and organise further activities as one whole team – “Beyond Boundaries”
So far the youths have done:
- A required First Aid course with the ERRC in Gozo and granted with a certificate for successfully passing the course
- Voluntary Work with the club in their activities including the opening of the Kercem Ajax stadium
- Voluntary Work at "Dar Guzeppa Debono" by going for a day helping the organisation in its needs
- Fundraising activity by preparing a Raffle during a Pasta Night organised by Kercem Ajax Nusery
- Fundraising activity by organising a 5 a side game taking place in our stadium
The Gozitan participants will depart to Scotland on the 4th of December to meet the Scottish youths at New College Lanarkshire. The groups will spend ten days interacting with each other and taking part in activities. These include traditional Maltese and Scottish nights giving the students a peak into the other group's culture.

Kercem Ajax VS Saint Lawrence Spurs
Kercem Ajax confirmed their good moment of form with a victory over St Lawrence Spurs in a match from the sixth day of the championship. Kercem paved the way to the victory with two-goal scored during the first quarter of the encounter. The Ajax reduced their rhythm for the rest of the encounter and although the Spurs threatened to re-open the issue Kercem held command of play and the victory was never in contention. Kercem’s midfielder Elton Vella was included in the starting line-up for this match and he is expected to be available for the next matches after recovering from a serious injury. However, Kercem are still awaiting Malcolm Vella to recover from his injury so that their player-coach Sabri Rais will have the complete squad available for his selection. In the match against St Lawrence their Bulgarian striker Anderson Ribeiro failed to hit the target but the Kercem’s other strikers and midfielders, particularly Ian Xuereb who scored a brace, made up by scoring on four occasions. St Lawrence, on the other hand, tried hard to earn something from this match but they suffered too much pressure from their opponents. The Spurs only produced sporadic attacks and they also failed to capitalize from their best scoring opportunities so that their was no way to avoid the defeat......

Kercem Ajax VS Xewkija Tigers
Reigning champions were aiming earn their fifth consecutive from their match against Kercem Ajax and take sole leadership on the table. On the other hand Kercem needed points from this encounter in their attempt to recover from the disappointing defeat conceded in their previous match and re-open their chances to remain close to the top positions on the table. As a result the match turned out into a well contested encounter that left the final score uncertain until the final whistle. Each side practically prevailed over the other for a half each as Kercem surprised the more quoted opponents with effective offensive play during the first period and could have scored more than one goal but the Tigers had a good reaction after the break and not only recovered the deficit but created enough scoring opportunities to earn the victory. At the end the final score was just as it rewards the efforts of the two sides during the ninety minutes of play...

Kercem Ajax VS Nadur Youngsters
Nadur Youngsters confirmed their ambitions to be the major challengers for the title with an important win over Kercem Ajax. Nadur’s win showed that they are an experienced side that can come out of difficult moments and manage to arrive to the victory despite a suffering territorial superiority for most of the encounter. In this match they took full advantage of two mistakes by Kercem’s rearguard by scoring two goals that decided the delicate issue. Nadur in fact were facing Kercem at a moment where the Ajax were going through a good form. Kercem registered two convincing wins in their previous matches and were aiming to win this match to join the top positions on the table. However, Kercem committed the two mistakes during crucial moments which compromised their possibility to win at least a point. In this match Nadur had Mark Hyzler and match winner Joseph Vella who entered the field of play as substitutes after recovering from injuries, while Kercem had Elton Vella who was in the starting lineup for the first time this season also due to a recovery from an injury.....

Victoria Hotspurs VS Kercem Ajax
This match was considered as an important clash for both Kercem Ajax and Victoria Hotspurs as the two sides are considered to have the potential to be among the challengers this season. However, the two sides failed to convince during the opening two matches where the Hotspurs suffered two defeats while Kercem lost their first match but won their second. The Hotspurs also replaced their coaching staff for this match in an attempt to revert the negative trend and had Marvin Buttigieg as a coach for the first time. However, from this match Kercem showed that they are on the right track to challenge the top teams while the Hotspurs remain in serious trouble as they are still without a point from three matches and nine points away from the leaders. Kercem’s win was well deserved as they managed to hold control of play for long stretches and also produced effective play which kept Victoria’s rearguard under pressure for long moments of the encounter. Kercem’s pressure also led to two decisive moments where Victoria’s defense failed to clear the ball from their area and striker Anderson Ribeiro capitalized by scoring the first two goal which paved the way to the convincing win. The Hotspurs are undoubtedly under a lot of pressure and their most established players cannot find their best form to obtain the results that were expected from them.....Surce from : http://gfa.com.mt/Match_Reports_2014_2015/Match_35_Report_part_1.html
Kercem Ajax F.C. have been successful in an Erasmus+ application for an 8-day project being held in Malta and Gozo between the 8th and 17th October together with youths from Active Youth Union from Georgia, Russia.
The idea of this project is for young people between the ages of 13-17 years to get together to develop a youth exchange "Footprints in the Sand" which through non-formal learning will develop their commitment toward European Citizenship and Employability in a an exchange promoting a healthy lifestyle through sports and outdoor activities. The non-formal education will add to new vocational skills, including communication, customer service and teamwork.
The project is targeted at bringing together a group of 20 young people from Malta and Georgia with a common interest in sports and providing an 8-day programme with a solid structure for promoting a healthy lifestyle through sports by concentrating on the benefits that can be gained by outdoor activities and an active lifestyle. As discovered in previous projects, sport plays a major role in promoting understanding, breaking down barriers and celebrating diversity.
Prominence will be given to the importance of promoting an active life style through outdoor sports from an early age, where through various workshops and interest based discussions, issues such as levels of inactivity and obesity, the need to support and nurture emerging talent, and the formulation of worthwhile goals and performances from an early age are addressed. A detailed day-to-day learning plan and activity and workshop programme for this exchange is being completed in order to provide a rich and positive training and developmental experience.
The project will allow participants from both countries to take part together in a joint programme of activities that promote a healthier lifestyle through sports, thus involving the active participation of a mixture of young Europeans which allows them to discover and become aware of different social and cultural realities, to learn from each other, to develop an entrepreneurial spirit and reinforce their feeling of being European Citizens. A Youthpass Certificate will be given to all participants on completion of the project.
This project is being funded with support from the European Commission.
