Because of the coronavirus outbreak the Los Amigos de Mazarrón FC Gala Week events , the Race Night due to have taken place on Saturday 28th March, The Celebrity Golf Day on 30th March and the Gala Dinner on 31st March all had to be postponed. We are looking to re-arrange the events later in the year. Those who have purchased tickets for the Race Night and Gala Dinner should retain them for the time being and further information will be given shortly.
Mazarrón FC’s form improved considerably from mid-February to mid-March and four successive victories put them back in touch with the play-off positions.
The state of the pitch at the Estadio Municipal had been so poor that the decision was taken to undertake necessary remedial work and home games were transferred temporarily to the Complejo Deportivo, Puerto de Mazarron starting with the home game against CD Minera on 16th February.The temporary move paid immediate dividends with a 2-1 home victory with goals from Pablo Serrano and new signing Borja Mir. This was followed by a trip to CAP Ciudad de Murcia, a team struggling near the bottom of the table. In the past, Mazarrón has struggled in such games, but, although not at their best, a last minute header from Chiky Ardil secured the three points in another 2-1 victory. Next up was a visit from Cartagena FC UCAM and Mazarron’s 100% record at their temporary home was confirmed with yet another 2-1 win. Dani Barellis and Borja Mir were the goalscorers in front of another large crowd. A fourth successive victory by the same 2-1 scoreline came with a visit to UD Los Garres in an extraordinary game. There was a large following of Mazarrón supporters at the game, but Mazarron’s hopes seemed to have been dashed when Angel Lopez was sent off after just 20 minutes. They went behind to a first half goal, but Manager Juanjo made a number of tactical changes at half time and Mazarrón fought back to win with a goal from Dani Morales and a penalty by leading-scorer Dani Barellis, taking his total to eight goals in just nine starts. Mazarrón had a player sent off in the final few minutes and finished the game with just nine men, but it was a remarkable victory.
The strength of the playing squad was severely tested during this period with Captain Adrian Campoy suffering a recurrence of the injury which had kept him out for most of the season and Pablo Serrano requiring an operation which means that he will probably miss the rest of the season. Injuries to Cayuela and Monas also caused them to miss games and the usual spate of suspensions further depleted resources, especially when Andreo received a four match ban after his sending off against CAP Ciudad de Murcia. Mazarron’s impressive run should have been followed by two successive home games against Lorca FC and Aguilas, but these games were postponed due to the Coronavirus outbreak which saw all games being suspended for at least two weeks.
Mazarron’s home games are normally played on Sundays. Los Amigos de Mazarrón FC organise a supporters’ coach to most away games. Tickets can be booked at the weekly Los Amigos meetings at €10 for members and non-members €12. For longer journeys a stop may be made en route for refreshments. Full details of all games are advertised in the local media, www.mazarronfc.es, Facebook fb.me/mazarron2016 and on posters throughout Camposol and Mazarrón.
