Mazarrón FC’s win away to Plus Ultra on 11th December moved them up to 9th place in the league with just one game to play before the Christmas break.

los amigos Water on the pitch v JumillaThe position would have been much better if they had not lost at home to Jumilla CD the previous week in a game which should not have been played. The monsoon conditions rendered the pitch at the Estadio Municipal virtually unplayable and, in a game in which Mazarrón created virtually all the chances, it was ironic that Jumilla should win the game with their only strike on target. Victory in that game, coupled with the win at Plus Ultra the following week, would have taken Mazarrón to within one point of a play-off position and would have been a remarkable achievement considering that three weeks before the start of the season the Club had no President and no players.
