Scoring goals continues to be a problem for Mazarrón early 2021. After ten games of the season they had failed to score in six games. After scoring four goals at home to CD Minera the next two games, away to CAP Ciudad de Murcia and at home to Huercal-Overa again saw them fail to score, losing both games 0-2 and 0-1 respectively. By mid-January the leading scorers with just 2 goals each were Chiky Ardil, Omar and Simpara. The squad was weakened when central defender David Ardil joined Segunda B team Lorca Deportiva. Simpara moved back into the centre of defence from midfield and continued his fine performances which have made him Mazarrón’s most consistent player of the season so far.
A limited number of spectators were allowed back in for the home games against Minera and Huercal-Overa, with season ticket holders guaranteed priority and with strict safety protocols in place. Unfortunately, the COVID situation worsened mid-January and the home game against Cartagena FC UCAM on 17th January was played behind closed doors. The situation will be reviewed on a weekly basis and when supporters are allowed back in the following must be observed:-
Supporters need to register at the entrance to the ground at least 30 minutes prior to kick off time and avoid crowding.
ID must be shown; passport or driving licence and supporters must leave one seat free either side of them.
Remain seated at all times and refrain from using the toilet facilities unless absolutely necessary.
Use the hand sanitisers provided and masks must be worn at all times.
Your temperature will be taken (maximum 37.5ºC).
No eating or drinking of any kind except for water and no smoking. Keep a safe distance of at least 1.5 metres at all times
With regard to away travel, the current regulations do not allow travel to away grounds. When away travel is again permitted, we will ask Los Amigos members who wish to travel to away games to contact Barbara on email@example.com on the Thursday before the away game. The names will be passed to the Mazarrón FC President who will contact the President of the other club to see if he can organise the necessary tickets. This procedure should guarantee admission and save a wasted journey. Obviously, some grounds with very small capacities may not be able to accommodate visiting supporters, but we will keep our members fully informed. If tickets are available, travel will be in private cars until coach travel becomes feasible.
Mazarrón’s home games are normally played on Sundays with varying kick off times which are not normally known until the Tuesday before the game. Forthcoming fixtures:
7th February – Mar Menor CF – away
14th February – Lorca FC – home
21st February – Muleno CF – away
28th February – Racing Murcia FC – home
At the time of going to press Mazarrón’s home games continue to be played at the Complejo Deportivo which is just off the main road from Mazarrón Town to the Port. This is to allow necessary remedial works to the playing surface at the Estadio Municipal.
Full details of all games will be advertised in the local media, on www.mazarronfc.com or Facebook fb.me/mazarron2016. Mazarron Hoy kindly streamed the early games of the season live on their Facebook page at a cost of 2.99€ to allow supporters to watch their favourite team in action.
Los Amigos membership renewal has been deferred until the end of March 2021. Membership is 20€ and includes discounts on all Los Amigos activities for the member and a partner. Our Thursday weekly meetings have been suspended due to the local restrictions but will be resumed as soon as it is possible. A new date for the postponed AGM will be announced soon.
Because of the current situation in the UK and Spain, the Golf Day and Gala Dinner, which were scheduled to take place in April have been postponed. It is hoped to re-arrange these events in September or October. Tickets will be re-issued to those who have already purchased them. Anyone wishing to have a refund can do so when the current regulations allow by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
