Almuñécar Spoil Estepona Party

ALM Football Estepona Cup WinCD Almuñécar City won the CD Estepona Pre Season Presentation Cup played at Estepona last night. This was a triangular tournament with  Atletico Marbella making up the three teams.

As previously reported Almuñécar had fielded an academy side in the fixture on the previous night, so were able to field a full-strength team for this tournament. This was Estepona’s presentation night for the coming season, which they will start 3 leagues higher than Almuñecar, and as such were expected to ‘walk away’ with the cup in front of their home fans.

Watching the first game from the sidelines, Estepona must have been just a tad worried as Kasper Mikkelsen scored two superb free kicks leading to a 3-0 win over Atletico Marbella.

So, enter the favorites, Estepona, against our lads from CD Almuñécar City who didn’t even have number one fan Jack (my son) to cheer them on, making the task even harder. Well, not only did the Almuñécar lads run out 4-1 winners, Estepona were finished off with a superb team goal, with the final scoring touch from… yes you’ve guessed it, the outstanding Kasper Mikkelsen.
There has to be a special mention also for Chris Ramsell, who, on his debut, caused chaos with his outstanding pace and power.

“I am very proud of the team, this was a good, strong performance.” concluded coach George Jermy.

In summary: This performance and victory go to show that CD Almuñécar City will be a force to be reckoned with in the coming season. This after just a handful of competitive games playing together. Beating a team 3 leagues above you is an achievement in itself… but we know George Jermy and the coaching team will be looking to push on from this and improve further. We just need to get the season proper, underway, get out there and kick some lower division butt!
