St joseph’s have been Lincoln’s main challengers throughout the last few seasons. They were able to match Lincoln on their day, but consistently dropped points against other teams meaning that they were unable to sustain their title challenges until the very end. However this form served them well in the cups having clinched the 2012 and 2013 editions of the prestigious Rock Cup.

This season however it has been very different. St Joseph’s did not adapt to the changing climate post UEFA membership as quick as other teams, which lead them to lose the majority of their players. Lailan Perez and Tyson Ruiz left to Lynx FC. Justin Rovengo and summer signing Paul Podesta returned to former club Manchester 62 alongside dynamic midfielder Naufal El Andaloussi. Liam Clarke, John Paul Duarte and Joseph Chipolina joined Lincoln. With this, the majority of their title challenging squad disappeared in a blink of an eye.

St Joseph’s struck a deal with local spanish side Real Balonpedica Linense which should ensure that a stream of talented Spanish players would join the club on loan in future seasons. However this season for St Joseph’s, it looks like a relegation fight.

Kaaron Macedo is St Joseph’s captain and goalkeeper and a loyal servant to the club. A fantastic keeper who should have grossed up a lot more international caps than he has done to date.
