Mark Scerri leaves Sliema Wanderers, unsure of his future

Mark Scerri announced that he is set to part ways with his long-time club Sliema Wanderers.

The 34-year-old defensive midfielder took to social media to make the announcement that after 28 years at the Wanderers, he has decided to move away from the club.

Scerri has been one of the pillars of the Sliema Wanderers side since breaking into the senior team as a 16-year-old and managed to play 379 official games with the club.

During his career with Sliema, Scerri has managed to win three FA Trophies and a Super Cup title.

“Today marks the end of my time as a player of Sliema Wanderers FC.

This long chapter comes to an end after I made the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make. I’ve started this journey 28 years ago. As I grew at youth levels my love for the club grew with me and it was my dream to eventually play for the senior team, which I did at 16 years of age,” Scerri wrote on his facebook page.

“Today 379 official games later and captain of the club I consider myself very lucky and for this I would like to thank the club and all the people that were involved. The presidents I’ve played under, the coaches, all the players I’ve shared the dressing room with, and all the others who I faced as opponents, the kit managers, doctors especially Dr. Attard, all the people who work behind the scenes and all the Sliema supporters.”

Scerri said that it was time to take a break from the game but did not rule out the possibility of retiring from the game to give priority to other things.

“Thanks to this club and football in general I’ve learned some important life lessons and made some friends for life,” Scerri continued.

“I will take a short or permanent break from playing football and prioritise other things.

“Special thanks goes to all my family, without you I wouldn’t have had this career. You sacrificed a lot for me and I’m grateful.

“A Sliema supporter for life.”
