Huercal Overa CF Remain Focused on Survival
Juanma Hoyos will continue with Los Huercalenses for another season after a steady campaign last time around, but lack of a noticeable striker was the main point of concern for the fans last year and with good cause.
The red and blacks only managed to hit the back of the net 42 times (16 less than the previous season) and if your not going forward, you are going back, this was evident as they conceded 41 in 34 run outs (32 in the previous season) and ended with a goal difference of +1.
The word from the club is that they will battle again to stay within the league, this comes a slight disappointment to some sections of fans who would hope after a number of years in the division the club would come out and state they were going to try and push for a play off spot, or even announce they would enter Federacion Cup but sadly not the case.
Joing Juanma this season will be Paco Sánchez (Europa FC), Ferri (U18), Sergio López (Los Molinos), Javi García (Almansa). Paco Sanchez comes in from Europa FC in Gibraltar, he is a strong centre half that reads the game very well with a commanding aerial presence, has previous experience in the Sugunda B with El Ejido and Alicante CF. Sergio Lopez joins from Los Molinos, a very attacking minded player who like to get forward and play on the front foot. Javi Garcia is a well thought of young goalkeeper from Albacete spening most of his time playing in the Tercera Division Group 18. Ferri you will remember playing the back end of the season up front, a very quick striker who is looking to break into the first team set up this year.
Staying at the club is Álex Martínez, Carmona, Ismael, Luis Miras, Selu, Fran Moreno, Vicente, Kiko, Linares & Juli.
Departing El Hornillo is Manzano (Águilas) & Ex Club Captain Pedro Lloris who moves to Granada due to non football commitments.
