Mazarrón’s season continued to get better and better in December.

los amigos Some of the Los Amigos fans at the Bala Azul gameAfter losing their seven game unbeaten run with a 2-1 home defeat by second in the league Montecasillas in November, Mazarrón bounced back immediately with three successive victories against Bala Azul, UD Los Garres and CD Bullense. This meant that, going into the Christmas break, Mazarrón occupied third position in the league – a remarkable achievement considering that only one point was gained from the opening four games of the season. They are just two points away from an automatic play-off position, but obviously, well placed for a push for the end of season play-offs.

New signing Willy has added pace to the team and the return of goalkeeper Paco has also given competition to the impressive Alberto between the posts. Mazarrón’s away form has been particularly impressive with five wins, two draws and only one defeat in the first eight away games and it is no wonder that the travelling away support is increasing with every game.

Mazarrón’s home games are normally played on Sundays with varying kick off times. Los Amigos de Mazarrón FC organise a supporters’ coach to most away games. 8€ for members and 10€ for non-members.

Full details of all games are normally not announced until the Wednesday before the weekend on which the game is to be played and advertised in the local media, on www.mazarronfc.es, on Los Amigos de Mazarrón FC Facebook page and on posters at various points throughout Camposol and Mazarrón. Pop along to the Estadio Municipal in Mazarrón for one of the home games. Admission is only €4 with juveniles free and you can call into the Supporters’ Lounge for a hot drink or beer. Hot pies and pasties are also available at half time if pre-ordered at the Los Amigos meetings.

In addition to the excellent support shown to Mazarrón FC at home and away games, Los Amigos continue to provide valuable financial support and a donation of €1000 was handed over to the Club President, Jose Rodriguez. Los Amigos also provided financial support to the newly formed Pre-Benjamines team (5-7 years) in the form of a donation of €800 which was received from the Camposol Fiesta Committee for the part played by Los Amigos during the August Fiesta. This money has been used to provide kit and equipment for these very young children as they begin their exciting football lives. Los Amigos are proud to report that they won their first four games of the season and are top of the league, so obviously money well spent!!

The November Luncheon Club outing to Casa Nono was again a great success. Normal service will be resumed in January. Please email pamada.1130@yahoo.co.uk for details.
