The Los Amigos de Mazarron FC AGM was held on 23rd June at Mariano’s Bar and Restaurant, Camposol A. Thanks were given to retiring Executive Committee members Keith Salter and Steve Barrow and new Secretary, Mary Harding, was welcomed to the committee.
Four Los Amigos members, Steve Barrow, Tony Day, Paul Cassidy and Dave Greenfield completed the gruelling 117.3 kilometres walk from Sarria to Santiago de Compostela to raise money for two local causes; the Food Bank on Camposol and Mazarrón Futbol Base which organises football for junior teams in Mazarrón. Steve Barrow said that there were tired legs at the end of the walk, but they were all proud of what they had achieved.
They completed 180,000 steps, visited 14 coffee shops and 49 bars, (although I suspect the actual figure might have been higher!) and visited one cathedral. One of the most amazing sights was that of a 70 years plus lady doing the walk with her walking frame showing such pride and determination.
The boys would like to thank everyone for the kind donations which totalled over €2,200. The proceeds were presented to the Food Bank on 30th May and on 1st June to Mazarrón player Chiky Ardil who is also a coach of one of the junior teams.
Chiky Ardil is also an International Beach Soccer player for Spain and for Portuguese Team ‘Casa Benfica’ in the European League. He was part of the team which won the 2022 Euro Winners’ Cup in June. They beat three-times winners Braga 3-1 in the final in Nazare and are only the second Portuguese team to win this title. Chiky scored six goals during the tournament and adds this title to his many other achievements in Beach Soccer. Now aged 34 Chiky aims to continue his career in Beach Soccer and also with Mazarrón FC.
Another former Mazarrón FC favourite and stalwart, Juan Andreo, who was captain for a number of years, has joined Alcantarilla FC as their assistant coach. Alcantarllla were promoted to the Tercera Division at the end of last season.
Our Facebook page will keep members and supporters updated throughout the closed season with news of new signings, pre-season games, next year’s season ticket prices and the fixtures for next season when they become available. Membership renewals are due on 1st August.
