Las Lagunas 1 – 4 Peña los Compadres

Half Time : 1-0
Final Score : 1-4
Goals : David, Alex, Ismael, Antonio Manzano

Colchester United 2 – 2 Aldershot Town

The game comprised of 4 quarters of 20 minutes each. John played a total of about 50 minutes and left happy with his contribution to the game, a tightly contested 2-2 draw.
After his match, John was treated to a couple of hours in the VIP box at Colchester United to watch the first team play against Southampton. Unfortunately not a great result for Colchester who lost 0-2: Both teams are fighting to get higher up in the table to get in the play-offs and have a chance to fight for a place in the Premiership next season.

John is invited back to Colchester

John travelled to London on Thursday 3rd March to train and play in a match for Colchester United. No sooner had the plane landed, John headed straight to the academy for an intensive two hour training session in very cold weather, with his temporary colleagues, some of whom he had met last year. We hear that the training was very intense – after a session of practical drills and skills, they played a friendly 8 a-side match. The English game is much more physical, with strong tackles and more direct challenges. … good training to play against Manchester!  No doubt John will have very much enjoyed this experience and learnt a lot from his short time training with them.  On Saturday 5th March, John will play in a league game for Colchester Untied vs Aldershot Town at the University of Essex…. good luck, and play strong!
The facilities and coaches at the Colchester United Academy at Shrubs End are well known in the UK, where U12 train and play 9-aside on 3/4 pitches.  In March 2010 John was invited for the first time to train and play  match with them.

John, Sergio Esteban and León invited to Malaga trials

Juan García de la Casa, head coach of the Málaga Alevin team, invited 16 players from the Province to attend a training session at the Federation pitch in Málaga on 1st March 2011, including 3 members of the Peña los Comapdres team. Well done John, Sergio Esteban and León, who enjoyed the experience very much … good luck!

Light training on the beach…

Málaga 7 – 1 Peña los Compadres

The game was much more even than that reflected by the score. Going into half time, Málaga were leading 4-1, and there was no further score until the final minutes of the game. Sergio’s goal was the result of a solo effort that started in the mid-field. Unfortunately a few minutes before the final whistle, the ref gave a red card (in my opinion for what it’s worth, unnecessarily) and sent one of the Compadres players to the bench, leaving the team a man short at 6 players. A handicap too big in 7 aside football, especially against a strong side such as Málaga.
Half time : 4-1
Full time : 7-1
Goal : Sergio Esteban
