CD Almuñécar City have just nine days until their first ever league game against Granada Base. On last night’s showing against Velez Malaga B they are ready and raring to get started.

Velez Malaga B approached Almuñécar’s manager George Jermy two seasons ago to register and manage their side before moving the goalposts at the last minute, leaving Jermy high and dry. This backdrop to the match held in Torrox added a little extra spice to the Almuñécar’s final preseason match.

Jermy shuffled the pack once more, resting a few of the squad that are carrying minor knocks. Abdul Ibrahim came in at right back for Adam Spinks, Shem Jiminez moved into central midfield and Tre Hayes was handed the number nine shirt having impressed off the bench in last week’s defeat at Torre Del Mar.

The game started at a high tempo, Velez keen to press the Almuñécar defence where possible. However, doing this left them susceptible to the break and with the CDAC attack possessing pace aplenty alongside the target of Hayes it was not long before the deadlock was broken. Chris Ramsell, starting wide right but moving centrally where possible, linked with Hayes and finished well. Minutes later CDAC doubled their lead, Ramsell returning the favour and creating a chance for Hayes which was taken with style.

Velez briefly rallied, scoring with a fine finish of their own but Hayes went on to complete a first half hat-trick. His second was a very well taken goal, created by some spectacular work down the left by Norwegian Kristoffer Syvertsen who, when he combines his pace with an end product, is the kind of player who puts you on the edge of your seat.

With the score 4-1 to CDAC at the interval, changes were made. Chris Sanchez replaced Tre Hayes in the number nine role and helped himself to a hat-trick within 15 minutes of coming on, adding a fourth from the spot later on. Syvertsen added a brace and Mulholland also scored, rounding the keeper following an excellent through ball from Josh Gould.

There was also a return from injury for Quinn Honeyman who performed well after three weeks out.

The final score of 11-1 clearly shows Velez Malaga what they have missed out on. Their loss is most certainly the town of ALM Football PosterAlmuñécar’s gain.

So it is off to the Estadio Municipal Francisco Bonet  in Almuñécar on September 23rd, 18:00 for the first home game of the season.
