At the time of writing Mazarrón FC were preparing for their fourth pre-season friendly game against CD Vera on Saturday 17th August for a new trophy donated by the Football Club; The Los Amigos de Mazarrón FC Trophy in recognition of the support given by Los Amigos over the years.

Mazarrón enjoyed mixed success in their first three friendly games, all played away from home due to the ongoing pitch maintenance at the Estadio Municipal. Victory at Puerto Lumbreras was followed by two defeats; 3-1 at Racing Murcia and 2-1 at Lorca FC against a strong Lorca team which reached the Tercera Division play-offs after finishing third last season. Manager Juanjo used the games to give as much playing time as possible to as many of the players and also to gauge the performances of a number of trialists before finalising his squad for Mazarrón’s second season in the Tercera Division. As we know from past experiences, pre-season games and performances count for nothing when the real action starts; in Mazarrón’s case with a home game against Mar Menor CF on Sunday 25th August.

A number of new additions to the squad have followed including the return of experienced striker Dani Barrelis who scored six goals in nine appearances for Mazarrón last season before joining CD Algar. Youngsters Pablo Serrano and Kone have also joined, both on loan for the season from Lorca Deportiva. Another striker Jose Augustin, who has plenty of experience in the Tercera Division has signed and will provide firepower up front with the returning Dani Morales and Dani Barrelis. With goalkeeping favourite Pena having moved to Olimpico de Totana, Francisco has been brought in from Lorca FC to provide competition for Pablo between the sticks. Players leaving the club in addition to Pena include Salva Ballesta who has joined Aguilas, Randry who has re-joined Totana and midfielder Heredia who has moved to Huercal-Overa.
