Ħamrun Spartans made a winning start to the season after chalking up a 2-0 win over Floriana.

Floriana had initially seized the upperhand only to be frustrated by some outstanding goalkeeping by Emanuel Bartolo.

The erstwhile disjointed Ħamrun began to find their rhythm as the game moved past the half hour mark. 

Their sudden improvement almost reaped instant dividends a free-kick by Matthew Gauci was headed by Caetano Calil onto the post.

The Spartans kept the momentum after the change of ends and in a swift counter-attack, Njongo Priso’s measured cross was headed by Hernan Henneberg into the path of Kevin Tulimieri who nipped in and fire the ball past Floriana goalkeeper Ini Akpan.

Ħamrun got their second two minutes from time. Latching onto a pass from Hennerberg, substitute Bradley Sciberras sped past his marker and despatched a fierce grounder past Inietim Akpan.

Kevin Tulimieri was voted BOV player of the match.
