Santa Christina United Football Club is a Georgeland football (soccer) club, founded in 1947. Since their foundation, they have been in the country's primary division, or 1st division, without exception. They are the only team in that country to be able to make that claim. They are considered to be Georgeland's pre-eminent and more formidable side, having won the Georgeland Cup a total of 15 times, more than any other team, 7 of those in the past 10 years.
The club has been home to some of Georgeland's greatest players, notably Duncan Fitzpatrick, Graeme Collins and current national captain Anthony Quested. They have also featured overseas players such as Danny Acht, Robert Hadley and Richie Forde.
The team's current manager is Australian Colin Rothman. He was appointed in December 2006, replacing Simon Ewing following a much-publicised board decision.
In the 2005-2006 season, United finished 4th in the league, their worst performance in five years. They also nearly failed to reach the final of the Georgeland Cup, losing 1-0 to Pamby Town in the first leg of the semi-final and only recovering after a 2-2 tie gave them the goals on aggregate to continue. They played longstanding rival Emilypolis FC in the cup final on June 16, defeating them in a 4-0 victory, the largest Cup Final victory in sixty years, that energised fans.
The team's performance slumped for the 2006-2007 season. Though they managed to place second in the league, Santa Christina failed to qualify for the second round of the Georgeland Cup, finishing lowest in its group and enduring defeats from both Topstad FC and Zigit FC. Many fans blamed the team's poor performance on the board's sacking of manager Simon Ewing and replacement with the untested Colin Rothman and the board's decision to transfer high-profile Dutch striker Danny Acht to English team Chelsea. Injury problems also beset the team, including a leg injury that put skipper Anthony Quested out of action for three months.
