Finalists at the Día de Andalucía tournament held in Estepona

A lovely tournament in Estepona on 28th February, Día de Andalucía, a very sunny day with lots and lots of football…. the team left Marbella at 10:00h and didn’t get back until more than 12 hours later, when they got together for a pizza in Marbella to celebrate a great day of football and getting to the final.
The 8 competing Alevín teams were divided into two groups:
Group 1: AD Taraguilla, Guadiaro, Villa de los Barrios, Peña los Compadres
Group 2: Atl. Algecireño, Manilva CF, ADC Esteponense y Estepona CF

Guadiaro 1 – 6 Los Compadres (Sergio Esteban (3) David, Alex, Cristián)
Los Barrios 1 – 3 Peña los Compadres (Alex, Cristián, Sergio Esteban)
La Taraguilla 0 – 2 Peña los Compadres

Manilva 3 – 5 Peña los Compadres (Sergio Esteban (4), David)

La Taraguilla 1 – 0 Peña los Compadres

Los Compadres: León, Sergio Muñoz, Adri, John, Javi, Juanjo, Sergio Esteban, Alex, Cristián, David, José y  Stefan.
All the team took part in the 5 games played, including Cristian, José and Stefan who joined from the Alevín A/B teams. Everyone contributed to the journey to the final. Strong defense by Javi, and John, and a whole host of goals by Sergio Esteban (8 during the day), but the most noteable performance was put in by León, who protected his goal like never before, especially in the two matches played against La Taraguilla. Despite the tiredness that the lads were no doubt feeling, the final between Peña los Compadres and La Taraguilla was a fantastic spectacle. The Marbellis let a couple of good opportunities get away, and León made a couple of great saves, so the final result was a good reflection of this tightly contested match.  Well done to La Taraguilla… see you next time!

John & León selected to attend trials for Málaga province

John and his team-mate León were invited by the Málaga selection coach Juán García de la Casa to attend a training/trials session at the football pitch of the Málaga Football Federation.  Other Compadres team-mate Sergio Esteban had also attended trials the week before.
Along with 14 other hopefuls, after warming up and doing some near pass drills, they played a 7-aside match.  John started as right back, where he had a good game, and made some great attacking runs up the wing, as well as covering his defensive post as well.  Worthy of mention was a full speed goal kick from León, which John caught on his chest on the wing, and showing great control, he sped forward towards the corner flag before sending across a great pass to the far post.
John very much enjoyed playing with some of his colleagues who are usually on the opposite team … Curro and Martín of Ronda, Jorge of Conejitos, Joaquín of Puerto Malagueño, amongst others!
With some 155 teams of in the Alevín leagues of Málaga province, with 12 players in each, that means that the selector has some 1800 players to choose from!  It is a great achievement even to be asked to the Málaga trials – and from the approx. 30 lads who will be invited to train/attend trials over the coming weeks,  a final squad of 12 will be chosen to represent Málaga province.
Good luck John, Sergio Esteban & León!

Portada Alta 2 – 4 Peña los Compadres

A well deserved 3 points were won in this away game against Portada Alta in Málaga.  John played in the midfield for the first 20 minutes, which was largely dominated by Los Compadres, with some great moves between Sergio, John, Alex and Adri – although unfortunately they only managed to convert one of the many opportunities they had to score early in the first half.  The locals scored just before half time taking the score to 1-1.  The visitors came out even stronger after the break, and Alex scored a further 2 goals to get his hat-trick.  David came on and scored the fourth goal, and Portada Alta scored a token goal a couple of minutes before the final whistle.  Well done!
