Sliema Wanderers Football Club are a Maltese football team from the town of Sliema, which currently plays in the Maltese Premier League.

Contents

History

The club was founded in 1909. The club competed in the first ever Maltese Premier League season in 1909-10 and finished in second position to Floriana after the five game season came to an end.

Ten years down the line Sliema Wanderers finally made their mark in Maltese football by winning the Maltese Premier League title in the 1919-20 season, since then the team have gone on to win the title 26 times; a record for Malta; the last three being in 2002-03, 2003-04 and 2004-05.

Sliema Wanderers also hold the record for the most FA Trophy wins, with their first coming in 1935, when they overpowered Floriana with a 4-0 victory. The club have gone on to win this particular honour 19 times, the last three of which came in 1990, 2000 and 2004.

With all these honours, along with many others, the fact is that Sliema Wanderers are currently the most successful team in the history of Maltese football.
