LATEST NEWS FROM LOS AMIGOS DE MAZARRON FC
Scoring goals continues to be a problem for Mazarron at the end of 2020 and 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 Mazarron’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 games with season ticket holders guaranteed priority and with strict safety protocols in place. Unfortunately, the Covid situation worsened in 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 should 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 37.5C).
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 by email on firstname.lastname@example.org on the Thursday before the away game. The names will be passed to the Mazarron 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.
Mazarron's home games are normally played on Sundays with varying kick off times. Kick off times are not normally known until the Tuesday before the day of the game. Forthcoming fixtures are:-
31st January FC LA UNION ATLETICO HOME
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 Mazarron’s home games continue to be played at the Complejo Deportivo which is just off the main road from Mazarron Town to the Port. This is to allow necessary remedial works to the playing surface at the Estadio Municipal.
Full details of all games, dates, venue and kick off times will be advertised in the local media, on www.mazarronfc.com or our own Los Amigos de Mazarron FC Facebook page, fb.me/mazarron2016. Mazarron Hoy kindly streamed the early games of the season live on their Facebook page at a cost of 2.99 euros to allow supporters to watch their favourite team in action.
Los Amigos membership renewals (usually 1st August) have been deferred until the end of March 2021. If anybody, who is not a current member, wishes to join before this date their membership will expire on 31st March 2022 which will now be the same for everybody. Membership is 20 euros and includes discounts on all Los Amigos activities for the member and a partner. Our Thursday weekly meetings at the Golf Club, Camposol (4 pm) have had to be 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 both the UK and Spain, the Golf Day at Camposol Club de Golf and the Gala Dinner at the Hotel la Cumbre which were scheduled to be taking place on Monday 12th and Tuesday 13th April respectively have been postponed. It is hoped to re-arrange these events later in the year, hopefully September or October, and 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 email@example.com.
