Gib_FA_Logo_FINAL_RGB.jpg

Football kicked off on the Rock following the summer hiatus and the European fixtures this week. United, Lincoln and St Joseph’s racked up large wins while Europa also saw off highly rated Mons Calpe in a close fought and entertaining game. Lynx and a revamped Gib Phoenix battled out an entertaining 0 – 0 on Wednesday evening. This season has seen the introduction of the 3 Home Grown Players rules and more locals have taken to the pitch over this first round of matches.

Round 2 serves up the first big clash of the season on Friday evening as St Joseph’s and Gibraltar United square up. Controversy seemed to follow the fixture last year and it will sure to be a feisty affair. Lions vs Lynx and promoted Boca vs Mons Calpe followed by Glacis vs Europa and Lincoln vs Phoenix close Round 2.
