One of the councillors highlighted in the recent mobile phones for sex services scandal in Torrevieja, former Olympic gold medallist and the Councillor for Education and Sports, Daniel Plaza, who was the first to be accused of calling sex workers, has resigned from office. In a press conference on Saturday, with the mayor sat alongside him, from a prepared statement, Plaza listed his achievements whilst in office, all of benefit to the residents and visitors to the city of
Torrevieja, before announcing his resignation as a result of being “exhausted” by the “merciless media lynching”. Plaza reportedly admitted using his mobile to call prostitutes and sex workers, but later denied it, then he claimed that he may have called the numbers,but only returning missed calls that he had received. The latest evidence suggested that his mobile phone has made more than 200 calls to sexual services between 2007 and 2012. In reference to this, Plaza recently issued a statement claiming that nobody can prove he made those calls; in the same way that he can´t prove that he didn´t. Continued on Page 2

Continued from Page One The second councillor to be fingered in the case was the councillor for Public Safety, Eduardo Gil Rebollo. It is claimed that he subscribed to a pay-per-view pornography channels. This councillor has yet to take any kind of responsibility or even acknowledge his actions. Meanwhile a third, the Councillor for Infrastructure, Javier Montoro, spent 415 euro in a two month period making personal calls to his partner. However, it must be noted that this councillor immediately apologised for his actions, and has promised to return the money, seemingly the only person who did act responsibly, albeit only when caught. During the course of recent weeks, the mayor of Torrevieja, Eduardo Dolón, had promised that if his own investigation found that the allegations were correct, he would sack those councillors involved without question. His commitment then seemed to waiver when he made a public statement saying that nobody has the right to discuss these calls and the use of municipal funds, as it was a constitutional right for a person´s mobile phone activity to remain secret, which many people saw as a cover up.
Monday, 12th November, 2012 The Vice President of regional policy for the PSPV-PSOE, Ana Barceló, called for the regional head of the PP, Alberto Fabra, to dismiss all those involved in the scandal immediately, quoting that the overall amount of municipal money being spent by this misuse equates to around 6,000 euro every month. In an interview with The Leader, José Serna, coordinator of the UPyD, one of the first political groups to raise concerns about the misuse of municipal phones, explained that in September the situation first started to come to light, but even then they thought it was “only at the tip of the iceberg”, and that the situation, “pointed to a serious problem of opacity within the PP government and of the mayor, whose job should be to promote transparency of management, providing all the documentation for audit.” Serna added that “using public resources for private purposes may constitute a crime, so they should be brought formally to the attention of the Court",
adding that those responsible should resign immediately and return all the money wasted back to the public funds”. Serna also continued to maintain that although there are three principal councillors involved in the scandal, all of who should immediately resign, the mayor should also be removed from his post for failing to deal with the situation. Now, following weeks of discussion, admittance, denial and revelations, the prosecutor at the court of Torrevieja has announced that the court is at last going to investigate the alleged inappropriate use of mobile phones by councillors serving in the city of Torrevieja. It should also be made clear that the issue is not surrounding that of the potential use of sex workers, but is about the misuse of public money to fund them on any kind of level.

BACK TO THE 40’S IN BIGASTRO
It was Forties Night in Bigastro and with Hazel dressed for the times, Darren is dressed to the nines! It was off with the casual shorts and on with the suit just for the night!

AT THE ELEVENTH HOUR...!
Formed in January 2008, the Orihuela Costa Branch of the Royal British Legion yesterday celebrated the 5th Remembrance Sunday in it’s relatively short history at the Capilla de las Mil Palmeras in the diocese of Pilar de la Horadada. And it was not only members of the Expatriate Community who came out in force. The Service was attended by many representatives of the three main towns covered by the Branch, including the mayor of Mil Palmeras, and Pedro Mancebo, the deputy mayor of Orihuela, each bringing with them a sizeable delegation of their own. Chairman and Secretary of District North, Chris and Peggy Wyatt, were also in attendance. The British Government were unable to send a representative as the British Consul in Alicante, Paul Rodwell, who was due to be at the event, was called back to UK late last week. The church itself was filled inside and out with veterans, their families and guests as they all paid their respects to their fallen comrades, family and friends. Exactly on the hour, following a performance of the Last Post, which echoed out of the church and around the park, everyone was united, standing
shoulder to shoulder, for the two minute's silence, time to reflect on the memories of friends, family and colleagues who had suffered or died in conflict in the service of their many nations. Keith Brown was officiating at his final Remembrance service while, as well as providing a solo performance, Cathy Carson led the congregation in the hymns. The accompanying music was provided by the Phoenix Band under the Diectorship of Ian Vine. Led by the Spanish National and the Union flags the standards of the assembled Military Associations were borne proudly to represent those who gave their lives, whilst poppies were worn as a reminder to new generations as they continue to face up to new conflicts. The start of the service had seen the standards piped into the chapel by the Torrevieja Pipes and Drums as, together, they played a medley of tunes. Cathy Carson broke down as she sang the song from Les Miserables, ‘Bring Him Home’. Such was the emotion that Cathy broke down in tears as she struggled to finish the Alfie Boe hit. Following the service the congregation was led out of the church to the Garden of Remembrance for the laying of
wreaths and the poppy crosses. All the guests took part with the members of the branch, other local military associations and each of the mayors and guests laying wreaths of their own. For members of the congregation this was a time to remember. The wreaths were laid to the accompaniment of the Torrevieja Pipes and drums with 'Heroes of Kohima'. A further ceremony carried out following the ‘laying of wreaths’ was conducted by Branch Welfare Officer Jim Watt who had recently gathered together a number of artefacts that he had saved since the formation of the branch in 2008. The items amassed included the Branch Formation Certificate as well a short Branch History and numerous photographs and reports of Branch activities, including many from previous Remembrance Services. These were sealed in a ‘time capsule’ placed inside the Garden of Remembrance, to be opened in 25 years time by a future gener-
ation. The Torrevieja Branch of the Royal British Legion, who were unable to gain the use of La Siesta Parish Church on Sunday, held their service a day earlier on Saturday 10th November. The Service was attended by the Alcaldi of Torrevieja, District North Spain TRBL Chairman and Secretary, as well as all the local British Ex Service Associations whose Standards were paraded on the day.

PHARMACISTS TO HOLD STREET PROTESTS The College of Pharmacists of Alicante (COFA) has called for a number of protests next week as they continue to hold public health to ransom, making it almost impossible for the needy and vulnerable to obtain medication at times, and risking the health and lives of those they claim to serve, whilst demanding
payment of debts from the government. Apart from the national strike called for Wednesday the 14th of November, pharmacists plan to converge on Denia and Alcoy on Monday, Elche and Elda on Tuesday, Orihuela and Benidorm on Thursday and in Alicante on Friday the 16th, hoping to bring all the previous protestors together, departing from the COFA headquarters on Calle Jorge Juan. Meanwhile, the government of Valencia are hitting back by issuing a statement detailing how much money they have already paid to the pharmacists so far, as well as how their limited budgets are being spread across the whole range of public services.
In a press conference, Vice President of the government, José Císcar, announced that they have already made payments of 10,027,000,000 euro between the 1st of January to the 31st of October this year, a figure which does not include what was paid through the Autonomous Liquidity Fund (FLA), and of that amount, 956 million was allocated to pharmacists, who last week also received 114 million euro through the FLA. The Vice President also explained that this year the government has paid 640 million euro to public universities and 248 million to schools and colleges, as well as the salaries of all government officials and workers within the Valencian Administration.
Císcar reiterated that they are aware of the difficulties faced by many groups and suppliers for the late payment by the administration, and has admitted that the Consell has, “a duty and responsibility” to take the region out of the crisis, and are therefore working to pay off that debt. The government has offered to negotiate with the groups and prioritize to pay 450 million euro
of debt, once they receive the next payment from the FLA, although they are unable to give a date for this. The government had also offered an additional 60 million euro per month until the debt was clear, neither of which were acceptable proposals. The vice president has indicated that it will continue to work within the FLA and investigate different mechanisms that may allow for a
better payment plan to be developed. Císcar, who did not specify what is the total amount of debt held by the Government is, said that the progress of budgets and payments takes time but he felt that the Budget for 2013, albeit very “tight and realistic”, provides the basis for this.

‘Twitters fr om the Atlantic’ Remember, Remember - the Fifth of November Since moving to Spain and the Canary Islands, I have always thought it a little inappropriate and insensitive that, when living in a Catholic country, some British expats still celebrate Bonfire Night. The execution of Catholic, Guy Fawkes, in 1606 for trying to blow up the British Houses of Parliament, is still celebrated and remembered by burning
an effigy of the poor man on a flaming bonfire. Still, I guess it takes all sorts in an expat world. There was a time that I enjoyed fireworks; however, not any more. Since first having a dog, a corgi called Ollie in the UK, I have come to dread this annual orgy of explosive excess. Ollie hated fireworks, and from the time that the first banger was lit, he would tremble and shake; he quickly became more uncontrollable as the evening progressed and was clearly in great distress. He would run away, anywhere around the house, to find a safe place, all to no avail. What made matters even worse was that whatever we did to try and help, nothing seemed to work. Eventually, Ollie would collapse with exhaustion; it
was pitiful to see. We hoped that Ollie would grow out of this annual distress, but he didn't. Eventually, we took him to the vet, who prescribed tranquillisers, which we administered just before the fateful night. This too was a great mistake and it was even worse to see Ollie, still in great distress, but now staggering around the house, with legs like jelly, unable to escape to anywhere that he perceived as a safe space. Fortunately, after Bonfire Night, it was usually over and done with for another year, but with maybe another short burst of activity on New Year’s Eve. Now, living in the Canary Islands with Bella our dog, and Mac our cat, the problem is potentially much worse. Despite the recession, it seems that many of our neighbours still have plenty of money to burn, which they do to great excess from a day or two before Halloween until just after 6 January. Halloween, Bonfire Night, Christmas, New Year, as well as King’s Day are all great excuses to let off as many fireworks as possible. In addition, birthdays, anniversaries or maybe a new job and the many fiestas are all great excuses for a party; complete with fireworks, and the noisier the better. It is pitiful to hear the dogs barking, of which there are many in our area, and often in terror, with each explosion. No self respecting cat is to be seen anywhere and, I guess, that most have the good sense to hide themselves away for the evening.
By Bar rie Mahoney
Bella spends her evening inside our living room with us, barking and shaking. Doors and windows are closed, shutters firmly closed with either the television switched on or music playing loudly. In some cases, I know that aromatherapy using lavender oil also helps. I have also heard that it is possible to buy CDs of special music, especially for pets trying to cope in these circumstances. I have not tried these, but it may well be worth finding a copy. As for Mac the cat, is he bothered? Not in the slightest. He looks at Bella with distain, yawns, and falls asleep on his favourite rug.

We have all heard about the ‘gas men’ knocking your door ~ so this no longer works. What do they do now? They telephone you, with your contract details from your original provider ( how ?? Did they once work for them?? ) and arrange to call, as you now need an update on the connections to your gas equipment. They say you need a new filter system ‘by law’! Usual cost 40 euros, but from them it will set you back at least 200 euros! And now.....for your further delectation.....A similar scam from ‘water engineers’ who say that you now need a 5 year safety certificate for your water supply. They will come along and carry out the tests for free, only charging you for any materials that they may need to use....and we all know how much they will cost! The Leader made contact with Aguagest on Friday who are aware of the ‘engineers’ but confirm that no such certificate is necessary. Do not let these men inside your gate.

ALICANTE HOTELS SUPPORT RYANAIR
Ryanair welcomed the support of Alicante’s hoteliers who are backing the airline’s proposal to reverse much of Alicante’s 1m passenger loss in 2012, if the Airport operator withdraws its compulsory airbridge use (and fees) on all Ryanair flights at Alicante in 2013. Ryanair met with local hoteliers from Alicante (HOSBEC) at the World Travel Market in London last week and received their unanimous backing for Ryanair’s 2013 growth plans at Alicante Airport. Ryanair has submitted a 2013 growth proposals to AENA Alicante which will deliver 600,000 new passengers at Alicante in the year starting April 2013, in return only for permitting Ryanair to return to its walk on/walk off procedures on all of its flights. Ryanair has asked AENA Alicante to respond to this 600,000 offer on/before Thursday 15th November to enable Ryanair to include this substantial Alicante growth in its summer 2013 plans. Ryanair confirmed that if Alicante accepts its 600,000 passenger growth proposal, then up to 600 new jobs could be created and/or sustained at Alicante Airport at a time of high and rising unemployment in Spain.
SALINAS TO BOOST TORREVIEJA TOURISM
BY KEITH NICOL A new contract lease was signed on Wednesday to ensure that Torrevieja’s salt industry keeps production going until at least 2039. The agreement was signed in Madrid between the Ministry of Finance, and Nueva Compañía Arrendataria de las Salinas (NCAST), an organization that has been the leaseholder in recent times. Among the investments to be made by NCAST, at the request of the City of Torrevieja, is the preservation of items of traditional industrial heritage, which are to be retained in perfect condition; investments in improving the environmental improvement, rehabilitation of cultural properties and the promotion of tourism projects related to salt activity.
It has also been proposed by the Department of Tourism, to develop Workshops in Torrevieja, focusing on the promotion of Salt as a tourism project. This is a firm commitment by the City of Salt, allowing visitors, for the first time, the opportunity to see the process of wet salt extraction; which is a unique way of salt extraction, only to be found in this part of the world. The new Department of Tourism website will be presented at FITUR tourism fair and Councillor for Tourism Luis Maria Pizana said that "from the point of view of my council, the
biggest challenge of promoting the Salinas as a tourism concept, is that today its sole purpose is industrial production, ;so there is much work ahead." In addition, the councillor said "the municipal tourism website is ready to be presented in early 2013 at Fitur, Spain, along with the tourism fair in London.” Last week, a promotions team from Torrevieja was in London, presenting the city’s renewed local tourist guide. The event attracted about 50,000 people in 2011 with higher numbers expected to be reported this year.

‘Abandoned for a computer game’
‘Who’s the daddy?’ I had an affair around the time I got pregnant, but I never thought it could have been the other guy’s baby as we always used contraception. My daughter is now 2 years old and is starting look like the other man. I’m worried that my boyfriend isn’t her dad, but I don’t want to hurt him. Should I come clean? Jayne Shouldn't you have thought about your boyfriends feelings a few years ago or am I missing the point here? To be perfectly honest, I would be more concerned about your daughter. Isn't it only right and proper for her to know who here real father is? You should speak to your GP and see what the options are in terms of having a DNA test carried out. Of course that means you're going to have to face the music somewhere along the line but what
‘His ex won’t leave me alone’ I have been with my partner for four years and his ex wife keeps telling his kids that I’m a witch and spreading rumours about me across town.

I try and talk to him and he just tells me that I’m always nagging. I don’t other choice do you have? Think about it, if these nagging doubts are bothering you now, ten years into the future they'll be a hundred times worse. You made a mistake and you're just going to have face that Jayne. Ultimately, there are three people this affects, your daughter, your boyfriend and the guy you jumped into bed with. They all deserve to know the truth don't they? If I were you, I'd sort this out sooner rather than later because until you do, its just going to eat away at you. out bitterness whereas others aren't, its as simple as that Clare. This woman is obviously so bitter and twisted that she thinks nothing of poisoning her own children's minds. Unless she actually does some physical harm or damage to you, there's very little that can be done. People like this tend to show themselves up and in the end, the vicious rumours and gossip do die down. The best thing you can do is just carry on ignoring her and reassure yourself that you're none of the things she says you are. As for your partners children, they can probably see beyond the lies they are being fed right now. Keep your chin up and ignore this as much as you can sweetheart.

I've never got into them myself but I have spoken to plenty of people who've become addicted. What you describe is more common than you think Charlotte. Ultimately, this is about you and what kind of life you want for yourself. Your boyfriend needs to sit up and listen to your concerns rather than wearing his thumbs out on a plastic controller! Tell him that unless things change and he devotes a little more of his time to you that you're going to walk away. Hopefully that will be the jolt he needs to start taking you and your needs a little more seriously. Ultimately of course, if he simply cant or wont change, you will need to think about where you go from here. You are the one in control Charlotte, your life can be as good or as bad as you want it to be.

THE £12,000 PHOTOGRAPH Do you think the photograph alongside is worth £12,000 because that is the sum won by the London-based Spanish photographer Jordi Ruiz Cirera who gained first place in the Taylor Wessing photographic portrait competition for his image of a 26year-old Bolivian woman called Margarita Teichroeb. Perhaps we are all in the wrong job because I would consider the image to be one that many of us could quite easily achieve with one of today’s remarkable digital camera’s. Jordi Ruiz Cirera's picture is of young woman from the Mennonite religious community in Bolivia who was, for religious reasons, a reluctant sitter. The photographer said of his image "Her awkward expression says a lot about the tradition, isolation and lifestyle of this community," and the competition judges quite obviously agreed.
If you are passing, the photograph is currently on display, along with many others, at the Taylor Wessing photographic prize exhibition at London’s National Portrait Gallery until 17 February.
PREMIER LEAGUE DONATION FROM VILLAGE INN
The Village Inn, Campoverde, would like to thank everyone who turned up and supported the Memorial Day that was held in August for Jayne Scopp. The event was organised by the bar, together with Jayne’s husband Ashley after a chance meeting at a Horadada football match with Premier League Referee Mark Halsey. Jayne died of from cancer in January leaving Ashley with 5 children, one of whom is suffering from Down’s Syndrome. Those who attended had a great day of entertainment with the help of a number of local youngsters. There was flamenco dancing, singing and guitar playing which started first thing in the morning and lasted throughout the day. Many thanks also to all the people who bought table top stalls and then generously gave their pitch fees to the fundraiser. A massive debt of gratitude also Mark Halsey, who has recently recovered from the disease himself, and to former professional player and manager Roy McDonough, for supporting the event on the day with a very humorous question and answer standup presentation. Once again many thanks again to everyone that helped to make Ashley’s day with their superb efforts in raising a grand total of euro 703.63 which the Village Inn would like to donate to the Mark Halsey Cancer fund.

ALICANTE AIR AMBULANCE WITHDRAWN
As of Wednesday, the Alicante province will bid a fond farewell to the last remaining dedicated air ambulance that covers the area, as the contract and funding for the project comes to a close. Air support for emergencies will be left in the hands of a single helicopter which is designated to fire fighting duties, but is capable of being equipped and staffed for the transfer of medical emergency passengers, if needed. This refitting of the aircraft can be done in around 50 minutes, but many consider this is not a viable option in an emer-
gency situation. There is also an air ambulance based in Valencia which is available for emergency calls, but the response time for that aircraft is more than an hour and at a considerably higher cost in terms of fuel and use to cover the greater area now under its wing. It had also been said that the air ambulance, which was based at the Mutxamel airfield, also fell short of requirements, as it lacked a winch for use in the mountainous regions, but the many other lives that have been saved by the service would no doubt argue for the benefits of the service as it did operate.
The good news is that if the injured are prepared to wait until February next year, then a new provision of service could be put out to tender, but the plans for this are still sketchy at this time. Until earlier this year, as previously reported in The Leader, the province of Alicante had a specific rescue and medical transportation helicopter with 20 years of history, the funding of which was assumed by the provincial council. The Commission decided, in January, not to fund the aircraft, along with its doctor, a nurse and Fire Consortium staff. After a few months without the service, the
national Ministry of Interior adapted the fire fighting helicopter already operating in the province for medical transportation. SAMU staff were responsible for the service provision, but their workers criticized the unit saying that the aircraft did not meet the conditions necessary to develop medical transportation tasks or fight fire in the shortest possible time. Now, in the 5 months of operating the new service, there had been fewer rescues and emergencies than ever, which prompted the withdrawal of this costly facility. However, according to sources at the fire consortium who have been operating this helicopter, “statistically, most of the services are performed in autumn and winter”, prompting concern over the possible premature removal. Meanwhile, the DGT traffic department, with their arsenal of 21 helicopters, are still expanding their patrol network, for both monitoring and maintaining the flow of traffic on the roads, as well as the implementation of air based speeding check points, with the hope of issuing more fines with their new, state of the art technology.

With our high quality UPVC double glazed windows you can cut down that heat loss to an absolute minimum whilst also cutting down those ever-increasing power bills and keeping your place warm and dry. Many Spanish
homes also suffer from mould and moisture as a result of condensation. All our products are made from high quality, German designed UPVC profile, and unlike aluminium or timber it does not conduct heat or cold. There is an effective drainage system that allows water to escape easily. Combined with our 28mm insulated double glazed units the condensation can be decreased up to 5 times. Secure Home security provides a great benefit – peace of mind. To feel safe at home is very important to every home-owner. That is why we are including a Multi-Point Locking System in every window and door that we install. Our UPVC sliding and Tilt & Turn windows also benefit from key-locking handles. Our UPVC doors also incorporate a 7-Point locking system for added protection. Quieter Are you tired of that loud noise from outside? Does it prevent you from sleeping at night? With our UPVC windows, you can silence the noise from the outside by 80% (compared to single glazing). Double glazing is a powerful barrier against noise,
Designed for Convenience & Style The core of every Tilt&Turn window is its hightech internal hardware. It enables effortless turning and tilting of the window sash with a single handle operation. Turn the handle through 90° and the window 'tilts' inwards, hinged at the bottom with a stay at the top to allow a free flow of air for draught-free ventilation. Turn the handle a further 90° and the window 'turns' fully inwards, hung on to the side for maximum ventilation, more fresh air and ease of cleaning. Our Sliding Windows are very popular for their convenience. Sliders are recommended everywhere where inward or outward opening windows are not desired. When the sash is open it slides in to the window and does not take any space inside or outside the living area. This means you can use the area next to the window for anything you like. The new modern locking mechanism ensures smooth operation, and as a result you can easily open sliders with only one hand. Outstanding Warm Windows quality insures there will be no gaps left when the window is closed, so you can enjoy the maximum noise reduction. The result is a dry, mould free and healthy home. FINALLY THE CHOICE IS CLEAR!
Dr Ken and Mrs Susie Wildey, Mosa Trajectum “We were looking for two key things in our new windows; good quality and good service. We are pleased with both – and for us, with limited Spanish, the benefit of having all communications in English was an added bonus! All contacts (eg texts/emails) were dealt with speedily – so communication rated an ‘A’ plus. We would recommend ‘the Choice is Clear’ for good quality at a fair price:- having seen our windows fitted, our neighbours are already planning to upgrade their flimsier windows with a higher quality specification from ‘the Choice is Clear…” Mr & Mrs Hepton, Benijofar, Alicante
‘We are extremely happy with the service provided by your company. Both the products and service received were second to none’
WE HAVE THE ULTIMATE SOLUTION FOR ALL YOUR GLAZING PROBLEMS

ABBEY ANGLING RESULTS The 11th and final match of the Winter League was fished at the Embalsa de Pedrera on the 6th November. The day was cold and wet and the thought in the back of our minds was will we make it back out, as the roads are treacherous with the mud after it has rained. In the end we did finish the match 15 minutes early due to the weather closing in and everyone got out safely. The lake must now be 25foot below the winter level and this is the lowest we have seen it in the last 4 years, with the cold weather no Bleak were showing so it was all out for Carp and Barbel. 1st on the day Ian (The Wizard) Dalzell with 13.260kg fishing feeder and pellet, 2nd Mick (The Arsenal) Hill with 6.560kg fishing the method and pellet, 3rd Terry (Swing em) Screen with 4.280kg fishing feeder and pellet. Winners of the Winter League Cup are: 1st I Dalzell 77pts, 2nd T Screen 75pts, 3rd D Hoare 70pts There are no more cup matches until the New Year, we will be holding open matches with the Xmas Contest on the 20th Nov and any one wishing to enter contact Mick or Terry ASAP.

180s Terry Hagenaars x 2, Graham Dunning (Rendezvous), Jim Cheevers (PB´s Pirates) George Caine (Misfits), 171 Tony Beverley (Breeze Bar), Mark Farmer (Madigans). Highest game shot Terry Hagenaars (Rendezvous) (118), Best single Mark Farmer (Madigans) 15 darts The Euronics League Championship made way this week for the Sunworld K.O. Cup 1st round matches. Tie of the round was always going to be the Madigans Gogarty´s clash, the Gophers being my tip for cup honours at least this season. The visitors captain Bill Warburton, put out a strong side
in the first triple James Brown, Chris O´Brien and Kevin Procktor to face Mick McGivern, Des Field and Jimbo Carr. As expected from these two teams some steady scoring followed, James Brown hitting the all important double 4 for 0-1. The second leg was almost identical to the first and once again Brown took his opportunity on D9 for 0-2. The deficit was reduced in the third when Carr took out D16 for 1-2. Under the new format both teams required 3 different players for the next three legs of 701. Warburton´s choice of the Todd boys, Mark and Jack accompanied by Paul Easton faced Mark Farmer, Mark Taylor and Sid Cross. Madigans levelled the score and then the Todds really opened up, Mark recording 125 and 100, son Jack recording 100 and then S20 followed by D20 for a 60 out and 2-3. The see-saw match continued when Taylor hit the vital double for 3 apiece. The final three legs allowed each skipper to select a reserve or a triple made up from the earlier matches. Madigans choice was Field, Farmer and McGivern, Gogarty´s nominated Brown and the Todds. The senior Todd, Mark contributed a ton and wrapped up the 7th leg on D8 for 3-4. A fine maximum from McGivern followed by D4 made it level again with just one leg to play. The Todds were once again prominent in the decider, both hitting tons with senior claiming the 9th and deciding leg on D2. 17 tons were recorded in the last three legs, a testament indeed to a high quality encounter. Mark Todd was jointly named man of the match with Mick McGivern Cup holders Meerkats enjoyed home advantage over the Mixtures from Mirador, who arrived very early, presumably to upset the Meerkats preparations. The very smart but unbelievably noisy Mixtures tactics cleverly worked when they won the first leg via league sponsor Debbie Mackleston, or the finisher as she likes to be known, hit D8. A wobbly second leg concluded after John Eyre hit an excellent 118 leaving Alex Nikolov to finish off the remaining 12 points on D6. The same two really got their act together in the third, Eyre scoring 140,100 and Nikolov 125,100 and D12 for a 2-1 score line. The next three triples were indifferent to say the least, Graham Todd finally showing a little form for the holders pegging out on 40(D20) and 60(S20,D20), but not before Dave Wright (last week´s nomination for player of the week) had made it 3-2 for the Mixtures on D20. Requiring just the one leg captain Derek Kingsbury
selected himself, Nikolov and Eyre for the remaining three legs. Nikolov reeled off 2x100 and Eyre polished off D20 for a comfortable winning leg and a 5-2 result. Elsewhere in the Sunworld Cup Breakaways enjoyed a comfortable victory over the All Stars from Pint Depot. Jed Ballinger 2x100,125, Del Lister 3x100 and Sarah Simpson made it 3-0 for the home side. Mike Douglas 125 and Gary Thomas 108 ensured the result went the way of the home side, despite some impressive scoring for the All Stars by Ann Griffiths. The Hunks, in reasonable form of late, made the short journey to the comfortable surroundings of PB´s (Los Dolses), where Hunk Joe Hawkins was declared man of the match with 3x100 and a D5 thrown in. Keith King won the match on D4 assisted by Kenny Wilkinson 134. Steph Simpson for the visitors could only muster a lone ton but two finishes ensured the Hunks will be in the next round draw. The Bulls not unexpectedly gave the likeable Honeys a 50 minute pounding, but rumours abound that playing out the four remaining legs the Honeys came alive and won all four. Could have been a close affair or can I hear Chinese whispers? An earlier cancelled match was played this week featuring an in-form Madigans entertaining the Pirates of PB´s. Highlight of the evening was Mark Farmer´s 15 dart 501 single 180,100,30,137,54 out (S14,0,D20). The match wasn’t as one sided as the score line suggests, PB´s Lisa Horwood 125,100 Brian Nash 3x100 and Yvonne Roufignac 140 gave fine performances, but Madigans were just a little too strong scoring 11 tons with man of the match Mark Farmer doing most of the damage. The league enjoys and embraces Federation players participating in the Euronics Dart League. There are however strict rules allowing their participation. Captains are therefore reminded of Rule 12 of the League Rules 2012-2013 part of which is as follows. ¨Federation players will be allowed entry into KO Competitions provided they have played 50% of league games prior to commencement of each knock out competition¨. Captains must familiarise themselves with the Rules, however, should they find themselves requiring clarification they must contact Derek Kingsbury or Paul Durrant for guidance. Listen to darts chit chat on Exite Radio 89.2FM or 93.1FM live on Saturday between 3 and 4 p.m. Paul Durrant, League Chairman

This week on Guy Fawkes Night we had our own fireworks with two 8-1’s and a 7-2 and one of the big ones was the Great Whites from La Siesta who maintained their 6 point lead. Margaret’s (spelt Magaret on the score sheet) Sharks entertained and ate up Russell’s Kestrels from The Tavern who had just Dave and Tom with their 1 win, while for The Sharks it was Magaret and Anne-Marie who lost that 1 game. The other big score at Izzys Bar was achieved by George’s Sportsman “B” who toyed with Mary’s home team Peacocks, who relied on Sue and John for their lonely 1 win while for The Sportsman, Peter and George were the fall guys in losing the same 1. Next to the Ebony & Ivory where Keith’s Merlins crumbled against Richard’s Ospreys from the Windsor Tavern. For The Merlins the only winners were Ted and Tony with a fighting 2 wins while for the Ospreys Phil and Jay were in form with 3 wins. Up at The Sportsman, Steve’s “A” team had a close win against Dorothy’s in form Magpies from Izzys Bar whose best were revitalised Martin and John with 3 wins while for The Sportsman 2 pairs had 2 wins. Over at Catorce, Sue’s Kats were mauled by Val’s Voles from Bar Virgo who move up 4 places to 2nd place and who had Val and Terry with 3 wins, while for The Kats Doug and Bernard were left lacking without a win. The other match at Catorce was a much closer affair with John’s home team Leopards just edging it with 2 pairs on 2 wins, while Brian’s Jaguars after 5 successive wins also had 2 pairs on 2 wins. In The Windsor Tavern my Falcons team entertained Ayliff’s “A” team from Shellys and quietly strolled to a win with Bill and Sue winning their 3 games, while for Shelly’s Juliette and Craig were best with 2 wins. Ayliff did have an incentive for his team – every pair that won a leg received a Liquorice Allsort each – say no more. Over at Bar Virgo there was no hiding place for Derek’s Robins against John’s Lions from Catorce who had Steve and Phil on form with 3 wins, while for the Robins all 3 pairs contributed with 1 win each.

BIGASTRO GOLF SOCIETY AT VISTABELLA Would this be the last month we play in shorts and have the sun protection on hand. We were certainly blessed with the weather on the day, as we prepared for our monthly outing. This time, at our local course Vistabella. All the preparation had been done, with of course the help of our friend Pablo Riesta, General Manager of what is now a sporting complex. Again a huge thankyou to our sponsors, Alfredo at the Vai Ven and Pepe from Lo Rubes. At Bigastro, we pride ourselves in the friendship and camaraderie in our play and this on this day, it was extended to Pierre from Norway, who had mistakenly turned up on the wrong day to play with his Norwegian friends. As usual, I thank all the players for their assistance in being ready and able on time at the 1st tee. Off on number 1 were last month´s winner Andy Coe with guest Terry Slater, who next month will be welcomed as a member. We look forward to his future participation. We had given Terry an handicap of 18 as a guest, but will be a little more generous as a member and he will start off on 20. After last month´s, win Andy was in good spirit and had a front 9 score of 12 points and his finishing total means he will retain his present handicap. His drive on the 14th however gives him the prize that Jackie always wants and that is this month´s Longest Drive trophy, a gift from Lo Rubes Garden Centre. Gracias Pepé. Even with that he still managed to have the most shots in the bunkers and will be rewarded with The Bunker Club Trophy. Terry will be awarded as Best Guest. Playing with them Chris & Pierre. Chris, who is now 1 of our lowest handicappers, had a blistering start. In fact, is this indicating his handicap is too high? His grand total of 34 will mean that in future, he will be 11. He had a par on the long 7th and again on the short, but tricky 8th. This feat was repeated on the back 9 on the 10th and 13th. Well done, mi amigo. Next off were Keith and Diane Clarke and our Spanish pair, Alfredo and Evaristo. As we all know, Keith has had eye problems and we give him great credit for playing. We all know how much he enjoys his golf. With that said, he did well to complete 15 of the holes and we were pleased to see him hitting the ball so well. Diane, aswell as looking after hubby played well herself and said she had enjoyed the day. Diane for her part will receive the Best Front Crystal Bloc. As well as being this month´s guardian of our little friend Mr Blobby. Always good to see them both and hope they take care of the mighty midget. Alfredo (12) had a great start with a par, and 3 points. He even had 1 of those rare things, a birdie. Yes, 1 under par on the long, over the water 3rd. All I say is, blimey! As if that was not enough, he followed it with a par
on the 4th. He finished the front 9 with another par. His back 9 consisted of 1 last par on the 14th and his total of 33 would give him the Runners Up trophy. Muy Bien! He, like Chris will now play off 11. Evaristo,unfortunately had to leave early due to work committments. We all remember those days, don´t we? Last out was Peter Audoire and yours truly Les Rowlands. Peter started with 2 great holes, scoring on both and infact scored on 6 on the front 9. He improved on the back 9, scoring on every hole. What a feat. He also goes away with this month´s Nearest the pin award courtesy of Alfredo. Tapas at the Vai Ven in Bigastro,opposite the church. Again our thanks to Alfredo. Last, but should I say not least, Les. As usual, he started slowly and only amassed 9 on the opening 9 holes. Thankfully, as usual, as the bones loosened and the body warmed up, he got better. His back 9 was to be the best of the day, 21 points.Even 2 pars, the 15th and 16th. Although, not quite enough to catch the best 2 players, it was still enough fot him to be awarded with the Best Back 9 Crystal Bloc. Again thanks to all the players for making this another special day of golf, A society day when friendship and fun are the priority of the day and not necessarily winning. Also, we are happy to have Diane back in the fold. We appreciate not only her company, but also her tight control of the cards and handicaps. Not always an easy task. Thank you from every one, Diane. Our thanks again, to all of our sponsors. As a footnote, we are please to tell you, that Pierre eventually contacted his friends and will join them later in the week.

THE CELTS CLUB DE GOLF. This month we visited La Peraleja golf course a truly testing track. The course has benefited immensely from the recent rain and was well presented on the day. The club would like to thank Juanfra and Wayne for all their assistance in making our day out very pleasant and enjoyable. The last time we played the course we had to contend with a very strong wind, today we had just a gentle breeze. Our President was accused of having the luck of the Irish or words to that effect after holing out his second shot on the par four third from 40 metres, with his putter. Today’s competition was a singles stableford fund raiser. We the committee would especially like to thanks all those who brought items for our auction and helping to make the event very successful raising over 500 euro. The competition results were as follows, Joe Coyne collected the visitor’s prize with 33pts. Our captain won the gross with 28 pts. 3rd prize with 34 pts. Larry Long. 2nd Eddie Wall with 34 pts.

EL RASO GOLF SOCIETY "On Friday the 2nd November El Raso Golf society played its monthly stableford competition at Alenda Golf Club. This always proves to be a popular venue, and there was a full turn out. The course was in excellent condition and playing conditions were equally good. With one slightly harassed exception, all members found their way to and from the course without difficulty. The best guest was Alan Mansell with 33 points,
The celebrated garden gnome was presented to Joy Gray. As usual the presentations took place in our clubhouse aka Clapton’s Bar where Chris again provided a very welcome and very tasty sausage casserole. Our next event will be on Friday 7th December at La Marquesa Golf Club. Any enquiries about the Society can be made by contacting the Secretary on 966719711."

SGA TOUR ESPANA 3RD-6TH NOVEMBER 2012.
Day 1 – Font Del Llop The course was in excellent condition but a severe challenge for the majority of the players BUT Kari Makila took the course and the rest of the field to task with an excellent 40 points and forged a large lead as the majority of the scores fell below 30 points. Day 2 – Vistabella Yesterdays leader fell from grace with a score of only 21 points on the beautiful but tricky Vistabella course BUT Kai Uimonen with 34 points to add to the previous day’s 35 points took over the yellow jersey.
Day 3 – Alenda With the wind howling across the hills the scores tumbled as did the points total for Kai Uimonen who could only muster 24 points as the consistency of Matti Vayrynen pushed him within touching distance of the leader. Final Day – La Finca The weather forecast was poor and so it proved with constant rain the whole day but this didn’t stop the tension as the two leaders went head to head and with a back nine of 19 points (gross 40) ,Matti Vayrynen was crowned the winner by just one point from Kai Uimonen. The best lady player was Meiju Linnavuo with an average score of 29 points BUT give some thought for Kati Aaltio who scored a hole in one on the Autumn trip to Estonia BUT who on this occasion won the losers ‘HAT’ which she must wear for the next year when we will return to this lovely (if wet) region of Spain Report by Mike Probert of Costa Blanca Green Fee Services on 966 704 752 or 661 345 931 or see us at our web-site at www.costa-blanca-greenfees.com.
QUESADA GOLF SUPER LEAGUE
ALBATROSS GOLF LEAGUE
ALENDA GOLF 5th NOVEMBER 2012 - MATCH 1 This was the first match of the new season played at Alenda. Having arrived it was apparent that this was going to be a cold and windy day with the wind in our faces on the first tee and even those big hitters were surprised to see the ball stop so quickly. The course was in fairly good condition, it is only a pity though golfers haven’t learnt to use their divot repairing tool on the greens. This makes it difficult for other golfers to putt and more hard work for the green staff to keep the greens in really good condition. Nevertheless, despite the weather, some good scores were achieved and all the par threes were actually reached to play nearest the pin. Again, at this early stage, Benijofar are out in front but by a much narrower margin than last season. Only time will tell if we can reign them in this new season. Everybody having finished we journeyed back to Claptons for the prize giving and presentation. Our thanks to Claptons for their hospitality on the day. Scores as follows.
ROUND 8 - LAS RAMBLAS Round 8 of the Albatross golf league was played at Las Ramblas course. 48 players took part representing 12 teams and with of hint of rain in the air was pleased to say that all competitors managed to get round without any rain falling although we did have to wait whilst team Shaky finished in the dark!. Course was in good condition whilst scoring was mixed with a number of teams struggling a little too much in the ravines. It was worth the wait for the final team who just managed to win on the day by a solitary point. League leaders Ebony & Ivory check your card next time as unfortunately had to be disqualified for marking the card incorrectly Team Result: 1st Team Shaky 117; 2nd Breakaways 116; 3rd Elite GS 107; 4th Team Albatross 105 5th Spurs Supporters Club Spain 101, 6th Royal Oak A – 100, 7th Bocados 98; 8th Brenda’s Babes 81, 9th Katie Reillys 80; 10th Royal Oak B 71, 11th Dels Team 65.

Purchase of Golf Equipment The manufacture of heads, shafts and grips for most major brands of golf clubs are concentrated on a few factories in Asia where the are made for literally ‘pennies’. Unfortunately by the time they hit the sales outlets the selling prices are usually multiplied many fold to a price that the end customer considers to be unacceptable, As a result many golfers turn to the internet in an attempt to find a ‘bargain’ and this is where the saying Caveat Emptor (buyer beware) has never been more true because the market has been flooded with copy imitations of major brand clubs which are difficult to distinguish from the real thing. Just how do you protect yourself from falling foul of these pirates? The answer on many occasions lies in the shaft or grip used and you can also check the serial number on the club via the brand name manufacturer. If all else fails deal with a local respectable trader or remember that if it looks too good to be true it probably is.

GREENLANDS BOWLS CLUB By Steve Hibberd Welcome one and all, to another week in the life of Greenlands Bowls Club. Into the 3rd week, Mon's Saba league threw up some rather unsatisfactory results for the boys and girls in green, but hey, it's only a game! In div A, both the Sycamores and Maples lost by the same score (4-10), although in their defence, they both faced tricky away ties. Over at Quesada, the team of Brian Tomlin, Florence Edwards & hubby Mike won 20-19, whilst 2 draws, courtesy of Sheila Stead, Phil & Angie Goodfellow (20-20), plus Eve Blythe, Steve Hibberd & Sandra Heath (15-15), secured points for the Maples. Later in the day, Nadine Bater, Penny Tomkins & Ted Upham (21-10), plus Zoe/Jim Wilcock & Ken Parker (24-16), did the damage against the Apollos at La Siesta. A home match against La Marina Astronauts, produced only 2 points for div C side Chestnuts, thanks to Terry Lawton, Charles Langlois & Graham Watt (24-10). Weds proved to be a total washout, without a wood bowled in anger, leaving the Winter leaguers free to embark on a team building exercise in the clubhouse bar! Spare a thought for opponents El Cid, who having made the 2+ hours journey from northern Costa Blanca, decided to utilise their time shopping in the new La Zenia shopping Mall - that'll put a dent in the bank account then!! Thankfully that nasty wet stuff only lasted 24 hours, allowing the 1st round Premier 20 cup match against Country Bowls to go ahead. At home, Bill Pain won the singles, whilst Sue Johnson, Tom Hill, Barry Collins & Dave Greenland triumphed in the rinks. Away, Mike Edwards in the singles, Mike Veale, Bobbie Sims & Steve Cantley - trips, plus Gail Watson, Ian Kenyon, Fred Willshire & Barry Latham - rinks, ensured that their hat trick of victories, put Greenlands into round 2. Another dry day, enabled Fri's Southern league fixtures to proceed unhindered. Those mighty Oaks came up trumps again, this time at Monte Mar. Three wins, a draw, plus a shared shots difference, resulted in the narrowest of victories (8-6) over the Matadors. We salute you: Ian (baby face) Kenyon, Wendy Latham, Derek Toozer 24-14. Sheila Stead, Tom Hill, Bill Pain 15-12. Mike Veale, Ronnie Cairns, Steve Cantley 18-15. Di Lawton, Brian Miller, Barry Collins 17-17. Almost, but not quite as impressive, was brothers Elms performance at home to La Marina Sharks. Spookily, in this game the shots were also shared, and along with 3 victories apiece, an honourable 7-7 draw was fought out. Take a bow: Mike (Coco) Thomas, Vic (haven't you learnt how to pronounce my name properly yet?) Mahomet, Jill Parker 26-5. Cas Thomas, Florence/Mike Edwards 22-18. Jan Pocock, Ken Parker, Brian Pocock 23-22. Last but not least, them there Cedars had to negotiate the tricky El Rancho green, for a 3rd div match against the Raiders. Two good victories were not enough to win but a 4-10 defeat is no disgrace by any stretch of the imagination. Jolly well done: Fred Tilley, Penny Tomkins, Ted (they don't like it) Upham 25-14. Margaret Dewer, Zoe Wilcock, Jim Wilcock 15-9.

EMERALD ISLE BOWLS CLUB 2 November EI Claymores visited Quesada Swallows, a very close game ending with 104-104 shots. EI won on 3 rinks, the Swallows won on 2. With one drawn rink 15-15, the game result was 8pts to Quesada - 6 to EI. Monday, 5 November saw the Moonrakers play host to Monte Mar Picadors. We were hoping for another good win, but how wrong can you be? Each team won on three rinks but the Picadors gained shot difference of 103-98 to EI, resulting in 8pts to Monte Mar - 6 to EI. As I've said before, it's a funny old game! EI Cavaliers started their programme at Country Bowls, always a hard game, going down by 9pts to 5. Their next game was against San Luis who won on 5 rinks taking overall shots to win 12pts to 2. Brian Duff's team came back from 17-4 down to win 19-18 - WOW! Greenlands Elms paid us a visit next with the Cavaliers taking their revenge on them, winning on 5 rinks to obtain a good 12pts to 2 victory. Let's hope we've now turned the corner. EI Titans have yet to send a report. I think they are advertising for a secretary but I understand that the pay isn't that good! CLUB PHOTOSHOOT This coming Thursday all members are encouraged to attend the 10th Anniversary Club photoshoot which will take place on the green at 1pm sharp. Members should be dressed in whites.

ALL ELCHE - BUT NO GOALS! XEREZ...............................0 ELCHE CF ........................0 A funny thing happened halfway through the second half of this totally one-sided match. BY JOHN Elche’s very-useful right back Damian Suarez MCGREGOR was caught too far forward as Xerez broke down the left: the subsequent low cross was missed by Tato but swept, just, to safety by Etxeita for a corner. It was strange because it was the first – and only - serious attack on the Iillicitano’s goal during the whole match, that inept were a Xerex side starting the game in 10th place. The game was played with little atmosphere in the huge stadium with a running track round, the 5,878 crowd looking lost, way back somewhere on the distant terraces. Elche’s two leading scorers were both out: suspension to five goal ace and dead-ball expert Albacar, and out-for three-months four goal thrustingright-winger ‘Zoomi’ Xumetra meant the Franjiverdes were supplemented by Frenchman Beranger at full back and Palanca at wide left. Normally left-sided Fidel switched to the right, and he did well almost bringing a much-needed goal on the quarter-hour, as he cut in easily beating his man and from the by-line crossed for Redondo to divert the ball past his own goalkeeper Chema, only for Mendoza to heave it off his line. A clever chip by Rivera nearly caught Chema off his line but went just over the bar. O – O at half-time with Elche well in control - and absolutely nothing from the home side. On the hour poor old ex-Elche favourite Jose Vega was sent off for handball, his second yellow to leave Xerez with ten men. Surely the league
leaders could go on and win now? Coro, through on goal had his effort smothered, Palanca pushed a shot just wide, but with 20 minutes left Mantecon burst through the middle to meet a high cross, clashed with the tall Chema, the ball ran loose and Fidel crashed the ball into the net. No goal, ruled the fussy ref, Chema was impeded he said - looked the other way round to me, but the goalie usually wins those argument, doesn’t he? Soon after Beranger was dramatically carried off - I don’t mean to sound unsympathetic but he often is, to be replaced by the reliable Flano. Sound Elche coach Fran Escriba rang the changes: Pelayo for Mantecon, and the giant Dutchman Powel for Palanca. Pelayo leapt to a cross from Suarez, but his header went wide, and similarly Powel’s effort had no power to challenge Xerez’s hero Chema. Five minutes of injury time passed with relentess Elche pressure but Xerez just held out - they would be pleased with their point, that their performance just did not deserve. For Elche, the goals have dried up lately. Since thrashing Numancia 4 – 0 in mid-October, the Illicitanos have played 4: won 1, drawn 1, lost two (both 0 – 1), goals for 1, against 2. The team are still playing well, the defence is good and the midfield working hard, it’s just the goals are now hard to come by. Next Sunday at noon Elche entertain Alcorcon, who they beat 6 – 0 in last year’s similarly-timed fixture, scoring four in the first 30 minutes. A bit of that wouldn’t go amiss at the Martinez Valero next week. Elche are still top but Almeria and now Girona (who beat Racing 1 – 0 ) at the weekend are pressing. We don’t even want to think about last year, when the first half of the season went superbly well when Elche were top; and the second was – disastrous! We’ll be OK this season, just you see... MUCHO ELCHE!
SMASH & GRAB AS ALZIRA CLAIM POINTS FC TORREVIEJA........0 UD ALZIRA.................1 A late own goal by Manu, completely against the run of play, saw Alzira travel back to Valencia with all three points which lifts them above FC Torry and back into the play off places. However the real injustice began some 75 minutes earlier when leading scorer Koemann had to leave the field following a heavy challenge by Alzira keeper Vicente on the edge of the box. Expecting the referee to point to the spot we were amazed to see the free kick awarded to the visitors, injustice number two and the game had barely got warmed up. Koemann wasn’t able to return to the field which, in view of his recent form, was a major blow to the home side from which they failed to recover. Despite the best efforts from his industrious replacement, Luis Carlos, the injured strike would have proved more than a handful in difficult conditions and would almost certainly have made an important difference to the eventual outcome. The inadequacy of this referee was further highlighted midway through the half when Javi Rosa was the subject of an awful, over the top, challenge, which again went unpunished despite being under his nose. The half was brought to a welcome close when Alzira’s
Mateo fired over from close range with an opportunity that he really should have buried. After the restart Torry were quickest out of the blocks and dominated for long periods of the half. All of the football was being played down the flanks and two balls fed in, both in quick succession, should have seen Luis Carlos bring the home side back on level terms. On 52 minutes he scuffed a good opportunity wide and then 2 minutes later he shot wide of the mark with the keeper badly positioned and the goal absolutely at his mercy. Torry were camped in the Alzira half with Jorge the next to go close when he headed wide from a far post corner and then as the game drifted toward a goal less end we were treated to a skit reminiscent of the Keystone Cops when a harmless cross saw Torry defender Manu attempt to cushion a header back to keeper Manolo. Unfortunately the man between the sticks had gone walkabout so the ball trickled agonizingly over the Torry line to put the visitors in front. These were 3 points that Torry would have sewn up if Koemann had remained on the field, and 3 that they might regret having relinquished when we get toward the business end of the season.
ROBLES FIRES REDS TO TOP UD HORADADA.............2 CD THADER...................0 Despite their usual slow start this was a game that Horadada should have had sewn up by the interval, one that they dominated for long periods, that is until Luis was sent off midway through the second period. From that point, in extremely difficult conditions, they spent the final quarter on their heels, needing superb defending from the back four of Del Bano, Campillo, Rojo and Alex who was in fine form between the sticks. But by that stage, two goals to the good, the points looked fairly secure despite an inordinate amount of Thader possession. With Ensa relegated to the subs bench because of a niggling groin injury Titi was elevated to the starting lineup and it was his shot from the right that put the Reds in front on 20 minutes. Fine build up work down the flank by Luis and Alberto set the youngster up as he beat Pados to the ball to dink it over the keeper. Thereafter Horadada were in complete control with del Bano, Vardan and Alberto all going close. It was much the same patter after the break. Horadada really were passing the ball neatly in difficult conditions. Thader were barely at the races but they did have one or two efforts, particularly a break from Arilis, that, with bet-
ter finishing, could have punished the home side. But the game was effectively sealed when Robles broke from half way to turn Juan and Carlos inside out before firing into the bottom corner past an exposed Pados in the Thader goal. Perhaps the most bizarre incident, as might be expected, involving the referee, came on the half hour when Luis received a second yellow for a nothing challenge. He ran off the pitch expecting a red but the referee called him back on only to be confronted by Alberto, the Thader manager , and just about every member of his team. Realising there might be something to their protests the referee then consulted assistant number one, who was little help, before running across the other side of the field to confer with assistant two. Between the three of them they determined that it was indeed a second yellow so out came a red, resembling the same colour as the referee’s face. Luis once again trotted off the field which he had intended to do in the first place. So another 3 points put to bed for Horadada which lifts them to the top of Preferente on goal difference above Almoradi and Contestano. Next week a Sunday afternoon fixture as the Reds travel to north to face former skipper Ruben Pastor and his high flying Callosa Deportivo.

CF Mil Palmeras Alevines 2 Jacarilla...............................7
Sponsored By Fuego's La Fuente Another tough match against an experianced team saw Mil Palmeras have to work hard .With an improved performance from last week Mil Palmeras managed to stop Benferri time and again with some tough defending from Thomas Ellis ,Lacey Bradley and some great saves from Dylan Cooke .Second half and a change of keeper gave us a bit more stability with Elliot Goodens Goal kicks allowing Kevin Ruiz and Joshua Laycock to push up the field . Jack Ellis and Lacey worked hard at the back . Although they lost there where good signs and positive improvements from all players during the match. Player of the Match Elliott Godden
Sponsored by Talleres J Martinez Not half as bad as the score line suggests as we battled hard in the terrible conditions playing some nice stuff at times. After a good solid start Jacarilla took the lead from a corner. Ten minutes later We were level with a 30 yard effort from Lewis Long going in 1-1 at half time.Second half and with a lot of changes we became a little ragged and allowed them to pick up all the loose balls and ended up being punished. We got a deserved second goal but it was too little too late. Full time 2-7. Man of the match Lewis Long, Special mention Ben Naylor in Goal.
