LOS AMIGOS DE MAZARRON FC LATEST NEWS
After their win away to CD Plus Ultra in the first game of the New Year, Mazarron FC suffered a run of poor results with only one win and two draws in their next five games. This saw them drop out of the playoff positions and, at the time, of writing they were in fifth position three points behind Atletico Pulpileno in fourth,
The dreadful state of the pitch at the Estadio Municipal did not help matters as the bare and bumpy surface was not conducive to good football. Only two points were gained from three home games before the Club took the decision that maintenance work was needed to repair the pitch and home games were transferred to the Sports Complex on the road from Mazarron town to the Port starting with the game against CFD Minera on 16th February.
There were a number of changes in personnel in January which may have contributed to the poor results with new players taking time to settle in. Striker Musoni who had made a good impression during his stay at the Club left to joint frontrunners Lorca Deportiva and second choice keeper Francisco Anduguar left for CAP Ciudad de Murcia. Into their places came striker Borja Mir, left back Miguel Ruiz and goalkeeper Jose Martinez.
Despite the disappointing results, the Mazarron defence continued its impressive work with Nacho outstanding at the heart of it and Josema giving 100% performances in every game at right back. Only three goals were conceded in eight games, all of them against the top two teams in the league. Goals, however, were still hard to come by with only six scored in those same eight games.
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. The ex-pat supporters Club, Los Amigos de Mazarron FC organise a supporters’ coach to most away games and coach tickets can be booked at the weekly Los Amigos meetings. Coach prices are €10 for members with non-members paying €12.
