El FC Cartagena finaliza la pretemporada. By Steve.


On Sat 15 Aug, Cartagena travelled to 3rd div Caravaca. Inside their El Morao Stadium, honours were even, although Cartagena squandered a 2 goal advantage. Going ahead after only 7 mins through a Bustillo own goal, trialist Quintero doubled Cartagenas lead some 13 mins later. Caravaca scored twice on 28 and 72 mins, as the match finished in an entertaining 2-2 draw.
According to FC Cartagenas website, this was the last scheduled friendly, but hey ho this is Spain, and a further 4 hastilly arranged friendlies took place. The first 2 of these occurred the very next day, at the Pitin Stadium, San Javier, home of Mar Menor FC. Along with the hosts and div 2a side Villajoyosa, Cartagena were taking part in the Costa Calida Trophy. The 1st match against Villajoyosa finished goalless, but better was to follow against Mar Menor. Goals by Tato and Quintero did the trick, as Mar Menor failed to find the net, giving Cartagena a deserved 2-0 victory. With the final game between the hosts and Villajoyosa finishing 0-0, Cartagena were crowned cup winners.

Crevillente was the next destination, where Los Albinegros made light work of 3rd div opponents deportivo. When Tato scored on 19 mins, it looked ominous that an avalanche of goals would follow. Sure enough, 6 mins later, Victor scored goal number 2. Into the 2nd half, when 3 goals in a 13 minute onslaught, gave the visitors another handsome victory. Goals by Quintero (who scored his 3rd goal in as many games), followed by De Lucas then Santi, wrapped up a pleasing 5-0 romp,
Finally, a visit to local rivals Aguilas wound up an excellent set of friendlies. Winning 3-2, with goals by De Lucas (2), and Tato, meant that Cartagena remained unbeaten throughout. Scoring a late 2nd goal for Aguilas was Los Albinegros old boy Chito. Also in the Aguilas line up, featured ex Cartagena captain Sivori.
So, now it's down to the serious stuff. Next Sat 29 Aug, ko 6pm, Cartagena ko the new div 2a season with a visit to Girona.
Then, on Weds 2 Sep, ko 9.30 pm, Elche visit Cartagonova Stadium for a kings cup (Spanish FA cup) match.
