New year

Sunday was a great game. 2-0 win is always good to see but it was more than that. The club made an outstanding effort to see the fans in the stands. Although Ephifany isn't really important in the UK, in Spain it is a highlight in the year. This is the day the three kings bought presents and therefore the day presents ate exchanged throughout Spain. A difficult day then to have the fans in the stadium at 12am. Prices for the entrance tickets were slashed. Season ticket holders could bring their children free. The radio stations gave away entrance tickets with charitable giving. And the turn out showed, nearly 6,000 people turned up to see the team win. More than the two teams in Segunda that played at the same time.
As for the game, the players took to the field with enthusiasm. Suso who had a very tough week losing a family member went all out to score goals for his loved one, but the whole side looked stronger than that have for a while. Once again Cristo Martin played with enthusiasm, Chechu seemed to be everywhere at once and Moyano recovered ball after ball.
In defence it was great to see two youth players, Bruno and Jesus giving everything. Sergio didn't have much to do but as ever was there giving his all.
This win puts the team three points ahead of the rest and gives the team a gap especially as they play Marino at home next Sunday.
