Athletic Benamiel FC cadets crowned league champions


IN AN exciting climax to their league season the cadet team of Athletic Benamiel FC clinched the Andalucian League 3 title from under the noses of Marbella Paradise.

Going into this final round of fixtures the two teams sat level on points, with Marbella in top position thanks to their better goal difference of two.

Benamiel’s final match against Las Lagunas last Saturday ended in a resounding 8-1 victory and with Marbella only managing a 3-2 Victory against CD Estepona, the team from Benalmadena leapfrogged above them to seal the title by a goal difference of two goals in their favour.

Wild celebrations greeted the final whistle once the players managed by Cristian Ballesta and Luis Forret, realized their thrashing of Las Lagunas had given them goal difference enough to clinch the title.

The team and support staff who have worked together to put in some tremendous performances throughout the season will now be rewarded for their efforts with promotion to the second division of the Andalucian league.

Star player and prolific goalscorer, Alvaro Garcia, who scored 39 goals in the season, an incredible average of 2.05 goals per game has also been awarded the Pichichi of the category for the league’s top goalscorer.
