The big news from Mazarrón FC after the 2020/21 season, was that the Board of Directors had resigned and that new investors were taking over MFC. No details of the new Board are to hand at the time of going to press and it is unclear as to who, if any, of the previous Directors will remain. It is appropriate to thank our outgoing President Ruben Martinez Collado for the tremendous work he has put in over the past few years.
Ruben has overseen the rise of the MFC back to the Tercera Division and so close to gaining promotion to the Segunda Division via the play-offs. He has been a great friend to Los Amigos de Mazarrón and was always grateful for the support we gave to MFC, both on the field and financially. Together with Vice President, Blas, Secretary Miguel Angel Coy, Treasurer Gerard Mulligan, Sporting Director Fernando del Alamo and Technical Secretary, the long serving Juan Andreo, they have transformed the fortunes of MFC. I am sure they have found that, to take MFC to the next stage of its development, new investment is needed and we hope to hear news from the new regime shortly.
The Mazarron Feminas Ladies’ Team, which had already been guaranteed promotion, clinched the championship in their final home game of the season with a 6-1 win over CD Zeneta. It was a remarkable achievement in their first year of existence and they finished three points clear of 2nd placed SMX Athletic Club de Murcia with a record of P22 W18 D1 L3 F95 A25 Pts53. Leading goal scorers were Cindy with 24 goals with Miriam with 22.

We hope our Thursday weekly meetings at The Golf Club, Camposol (4pm) will be resumed on Thursday 5th August. However, at the time of going to press, the covid situation seems to be worsening again. If there is any change, members will be notified by group email and on Facebook fb.me/mazarron2016
Following the AGM in June, the new Executive Committee is looking at ways to encourage more support for MFC at both home and away games.
Congratulations to MFC’s player Chiky Ardil who was voted Player of the Tournament at the recent World Cup Qualifying event in Navarra Portugal. Chiky scored twice, the second goal seven seconds before the end of extra time, to help Spain to a 5-4 victory over the last World Cup runners up Italy and take Spain through to the World Cup Finals in Moscow from 19th-21st August.
