With pressure mounting on the Spanish government all the time, experts have recently been commenting that

that it was only a matter of time that they will have to strike the hatchet of cuts on the world of politics, bowing down to calls to streamline local and municipal governments. Continued on Page 2

Continued from page 1 In July 2012, we first reported the proposals in which General Secretary of the PP, María Dolores de Cospedal, said central government continues to work on plans that would see the cluster of municipalities with fewer than 5,000 inhabitants amalgamated in order to remove those many functions that are being duplicated and to reduce costs, and that that the number of self governing municipalities in the Valencia region would be reduced by 82%, from 542 to just 99. However, it was some two years earlier, in 2010, under the government of the PSOE that the “germ of an idea” was introduced, then widely criticized by the PP, and branded as opportunist by the left, just as the reins of government were being picked up in most provincial institutions by the Partido Popular. In recent weeks, the president of the Federación de Municipios y Provincias (the Spanish Federation of Municipalities and Provinces), himself a Partido Popular ruling mayor of Santander, Iñigo de la Serna, said that the text could be approved almost immediately, that would see a 30% cut in the number of councillors. However, the Mayor also stated that although he believes the project would deliver the councils the powers of Education, Health and Social Services, as well as providing greater autonomy, he admitted that the reform would be impossible to implement as the opposition PSOE would never agree. The opposition stance was reinforced by the PSOE Mayor of Vigo, Abel Caballero, who stated that the proposals would leave

Monday, 25th February, 2013 municipalities with fewer than 20,000 inhabitants without powers for deputations, which would be like a return to the “nineteenth century”, and that the new system would undoubtedly lead to “the privatization of services”. Now though, the opportunity of saving some 7.13 billion euro over the next three years was not something that could be ignored, and so, this week, the government approved a draft bill that aims to make deep cuts to local administrations. In a statement, the now VicePresident of the Government, Soraya Sáenz de Santamaría, asserted that the objectives for this law, the “Draft Bill on the Streamlining and Sustainability of Local Government”, are to clarify municipal powers to avoid overlaps, define which powers correspond to which public administration service, how those services are provided and with what money. Presenting the motion, the Minister for Finance, Cristóbal Montoro, said that under the proposal, the number of full-time paid local councillors will be reduced to just 12,000, a massive drop from the current 68,285, although this will be done over several years. Cristóbal Montoro, said that, “This is a reform that will streamline and save public expenditure, that will help Spain return to the path of growth on the basis of stability in all its public administration services providing a guarantee to all citizens on the optimum use of the resources being paid for by their taxes”. The salaries of those who remain will also be slashed, with city mayors being limited to a salary

of 100,000 euro, whilst mayors of towns with less than 1,000 inhabitants will no longer be paid. Other full-time councillors in cities will also see their numbers and salaries reduced through to 2015, but this reduction and subsequent agreed wage will be based according to population. Montoro continued to explain that the legislation represents a significant breakthrough for “each administration service taking exclusive responsibility for one power”, and that it represents, “progress for the municipality system”, without reducing the powers of local authorities. The draft bill sets a standard cost for each public service. In those municipalities of less than 20,000 inhabitants that do not reach the required coverage, the management of these services will be handed over to the provincial authorities. “The provincial council will be an important manager of public services for those municipalities of smaller size, which are the majority”, said Cristóbal Montoro. Ministry sources have explained that this process opens the door to private enterprise, because private companies could provide a service within that standard cost, adding that this can be an advantage and not a criticism, as argued by the PSOE. There is an element of protection afforded that should prevent cases of councillors being involved in these private sector companies, as Montoro explained that, “it is forbidden to create new public companies; those that already exist will have to be cleaned up or wound up, and those that depend on other entities will be shut down”. Furthermore, the role of the local auditors will be strengthened to provide them with greater impartiality and guarantee more rigorous financial and budgetary control. The number of local councillors

who exclusively dedicate themselves to such activities will be limited. Of the 68,285 that currently exist in Spain, only 12,188 will remain in salaried positions, this means that “82% of local councillors will perform their political duties without a salary”. Furthermore, depending on municipal population, the number of advisors will be reduced and the General State Budget will set maximum limits on salaries paid to elected officials, public employees and executives in the local public sector. Although the plan is for savings across the next few years, in a later press conference, the finance minister stated that councils are now tasked with providing data on advisors, salaries and proposals, and he already envisages that many town halls will start the “free” or reduced salary operations before the end of this year. That said, in reality, little change is expected in terms of the number of councillors and their political roles in the smaller administrations, the only thing that will change for them is the fact that they will not be paid, and will have to obtain their own earnings through other means, which many question both the commitment the councillors can afford increase in corruption as they try to fund their lifestyles and living expenses, and the functions such as the award of contracts for public services, which would become the role of a higher political body. Either way, the wind of change is blowing, and this may lead to a huge financial burden being lifted from the shoulders of the country, allowing its head to be raised above the water, whilst offering a wider coverage and continuity of public services, an increase in the role of the private sector, and a less strangled country that would lead to transparency and growth, assuming the plan comes to fruition.

RYANAIR TO RE-OPEN 17 ALICANTE DESTINATIONS

At the end of January El Altet airport had seen 12 consecutive months of declining passenger numbers showing a loss of approximately 1 million travelers in 2012. It was only the Nordic tourism boom and the slightly improved, and ever-faithful, British passenger throughput that ensured the figures weren’t even worse. However, after a terrible 2012, which saw a reduction by Spanair of 333,000 passengers on the route to Madrid, as well as

the withdrawal of regular traffic by Air Europa and the much publicized Ryanair cutbacks, Aena director, Santiago MartínezCava, has predicted that 2013 will see a better than expected passenger recovery. “The outlook for the season, that begins on 1st Aprilis very good,” he says, “despite the fact that there are still a number of airlines that have to present their detailed business programmes. There are others, however, that have already begun selling flights for the April / October period.” One major boost is the re-introduction of 17 destinations by Ryanair of the 18 that were previously cancelled last October. The Irish airline has announced that it will once again fly between Alicante and Bournemouth, Paris, Nuremberg, Wroclaw, Katowice, Budapest, Kaunas, Knock, Oslo, Smaland, Hausegund, Angelhoug, Kerry, Malmoe, Cork and Tampere. Equally good news was announced simultaneously by the airline, Norwegian Air Shuttle,

which is starting to slowly lift the veil on its strategy behind the massive firm order for 222 narrow body aircraft. Buoyed by a 27% increase in net profits and a 25% hike in revenue for 3Q2012, it confirmed plans to open a base of operations in Alicante in spring 2013. The airline has said that it will operate a base in Alicante with two aircraft which will connect El Altet with 20 airports in Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and the UK (London). El Altet served 431,743 passengers in January, an increase of 1.8% on the same month last year. There were other national airports, however, that saw a decline in network traffic. Barajas recorded 2.9 million pas-

sengers, down 13%; Barcelona, two million, down 8%, Gran Canaria, 881 536 users, 7% fewer, Tenerife, 754,516 passengers, down 6%; Palma, 558,817 passengers, 9% down and Malaga similar to El Altet, 537,657 users, 2.4% less.

ORIHUELA BUS – USE IT OR LOSE IT Whilst continuing getting to grips with her roles as Councillor for the Coast, Martina Scheurer is not only actively trying to resolve issues from residents, but also trying to raise awareness of public services that may be under threat if they are no longer required.

Enjoy a day out in Orihuela City

One such service is the regular weekly bus service between Playa Flamenca and Orihuela, which also serves Entre Naranjos. We reported how the councillor had fought for this service once before, whilst in her role of public transport, adapting the service that covered the health centres. The service operates on a Tuesday at 9 in the morning, and has been declining in popularity recently. Like any public service, it is subsidised by the tax payer, so it would be unfair to continue its use, if it´s no longer required. The councillor said that, “In the beginning it had a good use, but now not anymore, maybe because people don´t know about it”. There is a constant changing program of cultural and educational events in the city of Orihuela, not to mention the unique shops and tourist attractions, such as the cathedral, the traditional and historic buildings, the museums, arts and extensive green areas, restaurants and bars, which offer something for everybody, for a great day out or more. Reservations can be made on the bus, by telephoning 966 760 000, extension 32, or by email to residentes@orihuela.es. Not forgetting that as it is a reliable bus service, there is no need for a dedicated driver, so you don´t even have to worry about sampling the fine wines on offer in the city, nor the stress of driving through the road works whilst the improvements are taking place.

EVICTION NOTICE FOR ORIHUELA COUR TS It is a situation that has been threatened for some time, but now, the bi-party government team of Orihuela has agreed to file an eviction notice on the Courthouse in the city, on the building owned by the municipality and occupied by the judiciary for the last eight years. Spokesperson for Orihuela, the Deputy Mayor and leading figure of the PSOE, Antonia Moreno, said that the building occupied by the courts had been paid for by the city council and was occupied by the Valencia Department of Justice, “without any agreement”. Talking about the ultimate squatters, Moreno said that the government had been trying to get an agreement with the Valencian government signed for over a year, and that the regional secretary for Justice, Antoni Gastaldi, "announced before last Christmas the signing of the agreement reached with the City”. Prior to that announcement, Gastaldi had met twice with the Mayor, Monserrate Guillén of the Los Verdes, along with Secretary of Finance and the regional CEO of Heritage trust, who had, “a draft agreement”, after working hard with the Minister The Orihuela Courts have been described as the ultimate squatters

for Justice, Serafín Castellano, before the “light went out”, according to Moreno. Moreno recalled that the agreement for their occupation was to be of benefit to the citizens of Orihuela, including plans by Valencia to fund a new health centre Rabaloche for 2.1 million euro, and paying another 3 million as the difference in the cost of the building where the courts were housed. “The only condition”, according to Moreno, “is that the work was executed before the end of 2013”. Moreno also explained that project plans had been submitted, including suggested suppliers for all elements of the work, for which all the Valencia team had to do was make the payment, after authorising the work. Moreno also emphasised that the decision is final, as there is “No turning back: I assume the consequences of this decision”, which the residents of Orihuela have been paying for the last ten years. The only way of preventing the eviction is to agree to the demands of the agreement, “We want the swap, we want the money, more than three million euro, and with that money, we will build the health centre”, to benefit all of the residents of Orihuela, Moreno concluded.

BISHOPS AND CHURCH REPS GATHER AT ORIHUELA COST A Three bishops joined representatives of Church of England congregations and their clergy from across Spain and Portugal, together with Morocco, Andorra, Madeira and the Canaries, when they met for their annual synod or conference.

For the third year running the synod was hosted by the Torrevieja chaplaincy from Tuesday 29th Jan. to Friday 1st Feb. and took place in the Hotel La Zenia, a very popular venue with members. The church representatives heard from Dr. Geoffrey Rowell, the Bishop in Europe, who spoke about the place of poetry in worship and an inspirational talk on prayer from Bishop David Hamid, who has responsibility for Spain and Portugal in the diocese. A special guest was Bishop Bill Godfrey, the Anglican bishop in Peru, who led two Bible Study sessions, as well as bringing people up to date on the growth of the Church in Peru, which is supported by the Anglican churches in Spain and Portugal. The synod also discussed a wide range of business, affirming its support for the appointment of women bishops and agreeing to change its name from the Archdeaconry of Gibraltar to the Archdeaconry of Iberia and Gibraltar, to emphasise that the Church of England in this part of the world extends much further than the Rock. They also heard a message from Justin Welby, the new Archbishop of Canterbury elect, who came to La Zenia to address the synod in 2010. There were additional special meetings organised for church treasurers and "readers"- licensed lay ministers. At a packed service on Thursday evening, also attended by local representatives of the Norwegian Lutheran Church, members said farewell to Canon Hugh Broad, the chaplain for Almeria and Mojacar and, as area dean, the man with the responsibility for organising synod each year, who is retiring at Easter. " Hugh has been a tremendous support to this chaplaincy. Speaking personally it has been a source of great support for me having him as my nearest colleague to the south, and he has provided us all with wise advice based on his vast experience as a priest" said Revd. Chris Scargill the Torrevieja chaplain. " We were all so pleased to be able to be at his farewell and to thank him personally." In the same service Bishop Geoffrey licensed the chaplain of Nerja, Revd. Geoff Johnston as the new area dean. Geoff's wife Carol was also commissioned as the President of the Mothers' Union in the diocese of Europe, taking on the leadership of a growing network of MU branches across the Continent. For more information regarding the 2013 synod at La Zenia contact Revd. Chris Scargill on 966925205 or email revdcms@gmail.com

‘Twitters from the Atlantic’ Barrie Mahoney was a teacher, head teacher and school inspector in the UK, as well as a reporter in Spain, before moving to the Canary Islands as a newspaper editor. He is still enjoying life in the sun as a writer and author.

T he Exce ptionally Long and Highly Ir ritating Scarf Bureaucracy is unique to a particular country and culture. I am told that it is blisteringly efficient in Germany, painfully slow in Italy and Greece, and in France...well, it is best not to even raise the subject with the locals. For most expats living in Spain, bureaucracy is just one of those things that we have to put up with, and is the downside to a mostly very pleasant lifestyle. Most of us have had showdowns and brushoffs with a variety of officials from Government departments, Police, Town Halls, Traffic and Customs departments. Not only is it the seemingly pointless myriad of paperwork that has to be dealt with, but that the requirements continually change, which even the administrative staff are often unaware of. A recent visit to my local Town Hall was a case in point. I had to obtain a copy of the Padron (certificado de empadronamiento). I have requested this document from various Town Halls for the use of a number of government departments on endless occasions over the years. Sometimes the department in question requires the Padron, together with an original residency certificate; sometimes they require a photocopy, because they will not produce one for you. They may require it to be certified by a notary, or maybe the police. In all cases, there are different requirements and all will result in at least a second visit to the department concerned and several hours queuing. In this age of instantaneous communication, I often wonder why one official

in one department cannot merely click onto the website of another government department and collect all the information that they want in an instant. I guess that is just too obvious and would take the fun out of the pointless game that we all play. Just one tip, never, never reveal all your paperwork to the clerk at the early stages. It’s a little like revealing all your cards too early in the game. Keep them well hidden in a bag below their range of sight, or stuffed into the back of your trousers or bra. Spanish officials are drawn like magnets at the very sign of paper. They just adore it, and will whisk away anything that they may see about your person before you can say “Manaña” and will never be seen again. I joined the queue of another eighteen people at the Town Hall, duly armed with photocopies of my documents, notarised copies, as well as some stamped by the police. I had my passport, driving licence, and copies of all documents. Together with my survival pack of sandwich-

By Bar rie Mahoney

es, a packet of Kendal Mint Cake, a bottle of water and a picnic chair, I felt that, apart from a call of nature, I was sufficiently well prepared to spend the entire day at the Town Hall, if necessary. The one clerk on the desk was coping remarkably well. Unusually, he was listening attentively to questions posed by his customers, entering data on a computer, bonking sheets of paper and sending near completed clients to the adjacent ticket machine to pay for those very special documents. I admired his multitasking skills, but I did wonder what exactly the eight colleagues sitting at the desks behind him were doing. One or two were peering vaguely into computer screens, others were sipping water and chewing gum, one was busily filing her nails whilst one very elegant, yet irritating woman, wearing an exceptionally long and highly irritating scarf, wandered from desk to desk. From time to time she would deliver an occasional sheet of paper, flicking her scarf behind her. Occasionally, she would wander to the counter to chat to a customer that she recognised, but never once attempted to help the over burdened counter clerk or do anything useful other than trying to look elegant in that exceptionally long and highly irritating scarf when it was already 27 degrees on hot and sunny February day. Eventually I reached the counter clerk. I politely made my request in well-rehearsed Spanish. He nodded, bonked a sheet of paper and waved me to a machine where I had to pay my three euros. In the 90 minutes that I had been waiting, I calculated that the clerk had taken around 200 euros in fees. As the German gentleman in front to me commented, “You would think that with such high unemployment in Spain, the Town Hall would find it useful to employ at least two more counter staff. It would save unemployment benefit, and they would pay for themselves in a few hours. Personally, I was thinking more of immediate redundancy for the lady with the exceptionally long and highly irritating scarf.

MAN SERIOUSLY INJURED IN APARTMENT FIRE

Picture courtesy of Objetivo Torrevieja objetivotorrevieja.wordpress.com A 57 year old man was seriously injured, having suffered burns to his legs, in a fire in an apartment block on Thursday afternoon. The alarm was raised at around 13:45, when an explosion was heard at the premises located on Avenida de Pinoso, in the playa de Los Náufragos area of the coast. A neighbour of the man forced his way into the property and dragged him to safety, before members of the Guardia Civil and Local Police arrived, accompanied by fire fighters from Torrevieja. The man was immediately taken to Torrevieja Hospital by a SAMU ambulance, and although he was conscious, had suffered considerable burns to his legs, as well as his body and head. Whilst fire fighters were tackling the blaze, a further two explosions were heard from inside the property, leading investigators to initially suspect that gas cylinders may have been involved, although an investigation is being carried out.

FIRE DESTROYS WATCHTOW ER A fire has destroyed one of the bird-watching platforms overlooking the natural salt lakes of Torrevieja and La Mata, and investigators believe that the fire was started deliberately, the fifth such incident in recent months. A neighbour walking in the area noticed the firs and alerted the emergency services. Although the fire was quickly brought under control, considerable damage had already been caused to the structure, although this damage could have been much worse. The investigation team not only feel that this is a continuation of recent, similar fire attacks, they also believe that they fires are started by the same person, as they have all displayed similar characteristics in how they were set. In particular, they believe that the fire starter has sufficient knowledge of the workings of fire, as the pattern seems far from random, taking into account such matters as wind direction. However, they also can´t rule out a simple case of vandalism in this latest incident, nor can they currently rule out that the fire may have been started accidentally by means of a discarded cigarette or such like.

THOUSANDS OF WASTED APPOINTMENTS AT HOSPITAL

The management of Torrevieja Hospital has announced that waiting times could be significantly reduced at the facility, if it weren´t for the extremely high number of appointments that are not kept by patients. In January, there were a total of 2,845 appointments given to patients who failed to attend, a figure which represents a staggering 10.24% of all procedures conducted at the hospital during that month. This figure equates to around 100 appointments each day which could have been given to other patients waiting to attend, and a subsequent reduction in the waiting time in which those in need of assistance have to be delayed before being treated. However, although this is a significant waste in resources, many feel that there is a positive effect on treatments given, as the wasted time allows doctors to manage their calendars more efficiently, without having to rush through some of their consultations under pressure. The figure also represents a 1.5% decrease in the number of failed appointments, which the managers feel is as a result of better communications and reminder systems being implemented, such as text messages being sent to remind patients of their appointment time. That said, the hospital is urging anybody with an appointment who cannot attend, notifies them as soon as possible, so that the queue can be moved into your place and the time is not wasted on failed appointments. The admissions department can be contacted by telephoning 96 572 1400.

HATCHET HANGS OVER POLITICAL ADVISORS Following the recent developments within the legislation governing the Orihuela municipality, the opposition Partido Popular of Orihuela has announced a revision in the pay structure of the government advisory team, that they say will save nearly a quarter of a million euro of municipal money. Currently in a majority and ruling council committees from opposition, whilst the municipality is governed by a bi-party, minority coalition of the PSOE and Los Verdes, the PP have proposed a maximum payment of 8,500 euro per year for advisors, irrespective of academic qualifications. The current rate of pay is 33,000 euro per year for those with a degree, and can be around 15,000 euro per year for those without.

However, the revision planned by the PP would result in the advisors being paid nothing more than the minimum wage, which is 645 euro per month net. Although this would result in a saving of 230,000 euro per year, the move would no doubt be approved by the majority, and

would therefore result in the people who are in positions of trust are penalised, but many people consider it grossly unfair to use these working people as political pawns in a game that has only one aim, to force the Mayor to resign, so that the majority group can once again take power. Although questions of democratic process may well be raised over the fairness of a minority government managing to retain power, the current legal situation is that they can carry on, although moves like this one are set to try to strangle the political lead in order to force a change back to PP rule.

TORREVIEJA THEATRE NOW LICENSED FOR PUBLIC PERFORMACES Over six years after it first opened its doors to public events, the Municipal Theatre in Torrevieja has finally been granted a license to function as an auditorium for public performances. The application was made towards the end of last year, but was refused in the middle of January, as the building failed to meet certain elements of safety and function that would allow performances to take place. There were issues with the capacity, fire extinguishers, fire exits and the registered capacity, amongst other elements, for which the Ministry of Interior reported unfavourable records considering that the building did not meet legislation for public entertainment. However, in the wake of the Madrid Arena disaster of Halloween, and that of a night-

club fire in Brazil, the license was now granted following corrective work carried out by the town hall. Therefore, the maximum capacity for the venue is now set at 897

people, and covers the auditorium, the stalls and cafe area, within the 9 million euro facility, which had been operating without the necessary licenses.

Having said that, using some diplomacy and tact Accepting a new man into her life and yours clearly isn't something she's going to do overnight. Planning days out and activities that help you all get to know each other better would be a good first step in breaking the ice and showing your daughter that your man is one of the good guys. Ultimately, time and patience will pay off as opposed to fuelling the fire with confrontations and arguments. Take it easy and keep your wits about you and eventually, I'm sure things will settle down.

This isn’t a huge problem but it really upsets me. My family consists of my mum and dad and two sisters. The problem is that we don’t really get on. We don’t argue, but we don’t have fun together either. Our family gatherings are just rather awkward. Why do you think this is? Lorna Wouldn't it be funny if you were sat there looking to each other to lift the mood? The truth is, that's probably the case. Have you ever sat down and discussed this? There's no time like the present is there Lorna? Arrange a family night in and raise the subject, despite feeling awkward at first, I think you'll find that dialogue is exactly what you need to resolve this one. Just explain to them all how you feel and ask them how they feel! As the discussion starts to roll, you'll all learn something about each other and, hopefully, you'll see a difference at the next big family event. Too many people put up with situations like this and just accept them as they are. Talking it through and stating your case as well as listen to every body else will undoubtedly help. Give it a go and thank me later.

TREAT PAIN MORE EFFECTIVELY WITH MYOFACIAL RELEASE The word "myofacial" is derived from the Greek word "myo", which means "muscle," and the word facial. Fascia is the thin layer system of connective tissue in the body that resembles a spider web and extends without interruption from the top of the head to the tips of the toes. Fascia is very densely woven and interconnected, like a sweater. It covers and interpenetrates every muscle, bone, nerve, artery, vein, organ and cell in the body. It connects every part of the body to every other part. Myofacial Release is a gentle and very effective hands on manual therapy technique that uses sustained pressure into restrictions in the facial system to eliminate pain, and restore motion and function to the body. I use this style of treatment in the clinic on a daily basis in conjunction with many other modalities this enables me to treat more successfully pain as it presents in the body. In its natural state, fascia is relaxed, elastic and wavy in configuration, which causes it to resist a suddenly applied force. However, it plays a major role in the support of our bodies. Our bones can be thought of as tent poles and the facial system as the guide wires that provide the tension to keep the tent up. Without adequate tension from the guide wires, the tent would hang limply on the poles. The same is true in our bodies. The facial system provides the necessary tension to keep the body upright with the proper equilibrium. Fascia is said to have a tensile strength of up to 2000 pounds per square inch and a memory. Therefore, if the system should become tight, restricted or unbalanced in any way, it can place incredible stress on any bone, organ, nerve, or other system in the body. This can cause pain and dysfunction in any area of the body. Because the facial system is interconnected, symptoms may appear in areas of the body one might assume are unrelated to the actual restricted area. Traumas of various kinds may cause or trigger restrictions in the facial system. Physical traumas may be caused by accidents, surgery, poor posture, stress, or remaining in the same position for an extended period of time. Mental traumas may also affect the facial system. Emotions and mood alters the energy system of the body and in turn the posture of the body, which affects the fascia. Traumatic events such as an accident or violent act may be stored in the memory contained in the fascia and produce pain long after the original occurrence. After trauma to the tissues, the body heals by forming adhesions. Adhesions are tiny strong collagen fibres that lay down "cross-links" in random patterns. They may be tough and wiry or filmy and thin. They are the building blocks of healing. The scars they form may be large enough to be seen by medical testing or microscopic. Regardless of the size, they exert tremendous tension on the tissues where they form. Many standard tests such as x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc. do not show facial restrictions. We believe an

MFR is a manipulation of the connective tissue under the skin. extremely high percentage of people suffering with pain and/or lack of motion may be having facial problems. However, because of the limitations of the medical tests available and the lack of knowledge of doctors and therapists in this field, most go undiagnosed. Adhesions and scar tissue remain in our bodies long after the original event that precipitated them. They may adhere the injured tissues to nerves, muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia, or organs, which may cause decreased movement or pain. The tissues begin to shrink somewhat as adhesions are formed causing more irritation to the area and perpetuating the adhesion formation. Myofacial release uses slow, gentle, continuous stretching in the area of restriction until the body decides on its own to "release" and return to a more normal state. Since this technique is slow, gentle and noninvasive, it encourages but does not force the facial system to return to a relaxed position. This can take great patience on the part of the therapist. Adhesions and scar tissue may be broken down using specific hands on techniques. These gentle techniques do not breakdown the primary adhesions that are responsible for healing, but do break down excessive cross-links that form scars and adhesions. When the adhesions are broken down, there is increased mobility, improved strength and decreased pain. Myofacial release must be tailored to each individual patient, their specific complaint, and the overall condition of their physical, mental and emotional body. It must treat the WHOLE person. It is not an approach that may be applied generically to all people. Many factors must be considered and weighed and the individual's body must guide the treatment from start to finish. The therapist is only there to assist. The goal of myofacial release is to relieve pain and restore function to allow the person to lead a full active life. The Goal Myofacial Trigger Point Therapy is an innovative technique used to relieve muscular pain and dysfunction. This hands-on approach is based on the lifelong medical research of Doctors Janet Travell and David Simons. These pioneers discovered the causal relationship between chronic pain and the source trigger points. Trigger points may develop anywhere in the body, but are most commonly found at the sites of the greatest mechanical and postural stress. Trigger points are an area of hyper irritability within soft tissue struc-

tures that are characterized by local tenderness and may include referred phenomena. These referred sensations can include pain, tingling, numbness burning, or itching. According to the writings of Dr. Travell and Simons, referred pain is the defining symptom of a myofacial trigger point. It is felt most often as an oppressive deep ache, although movement can sharpen the pain. Referred myofacial pain can be as intense and intolerable as pain from any other cause. Some common examples of referred pain are headaches, sinus pain, and the kind of pain in the neck that won't let you turn your head. In fact, that pain in your hip or knee can be nothing more serious than referred pain from myofacial trigger points (tiny contraction knots) in overworked or strained muscles of the hip and thigh. The following conditions are often misdiagnosed and myofacial pain can be the true source of the problem for:Abdominal Pain-- Achilles Tendinitis-- Adhesive Capsulitis -- Angina -- Ankle Sprain -- Arthritis Back Pain -- Buckling Knee -- Burning Pain -- Bursitis -- Calf Cramps -- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome -Dizziness -- Drooping Eyelid -- Earache -- Endometriosis Eyelid Twitching -- Eye Pain -- Fibro myalgia -- Finger Pain -- Foot Pain-Frozen Shoulder-- Genital Pain -- Golfer's Elbow -- Gout -- Groin Pain -- Growing Pains -- Hammertoe -- Headache Heartburn -- Heel Pain -- Hip Pain -- Irritable Bowel -- Jaw Pain -- Joint Pain and Stiffness Joint Popping -- Knee Pain -- Knuckle Pain -- Leg Pain -Locked Knee -- Low Back Pain -- Migraine -- Morton's Foot -- Neck Pain -- Numbness in Hands or Feet Osteoarthritis -- Painful Intercourse -- Pelvic Pain -- Penis Pain -- Peripheral Neuropathy-Phantom Limb Pain -- Piriformis Syndrome -- Plantar Fasciitis -Prostate Pain -- Rectal Pain Repetitive Strain Injury -- Restless Legs -- Rotator Cuff Injury -- Runner's Knee -- Sciatica Sensitive Teeth -Shin Splints -- Shoulder Pain -- Side Stitch -- Sinus Symptoms -Spinal Pain Stiff Fingers -- Stumbling -- Subluxations -- Tendinitis – Tennis Elbow -- Testicle Pain --Thoracic Outlet Syndrome -- Thumb Pain -- Tingling in Hands or Feet -- TMJ Disorder -- Toe Pain -Tongue Pain -- Toothache -- Trigeminal Neuralgia -- Turf Toe -Vaginismus -- Vertigo -- Vulva dynia – Whiplash Injury -- Wrist Sprain -- Writer's cramp. In trigger point therapy the source of the referred pain, perpetuating factors, and dysfunctional postural patterning are identified. Through the use of trigger point pressure release and stretching exercises, the therapist quickly eliminates and or reduces the irritability of the dysfunctional muscle. Most patients with myofacial pain and dysfunction see excellent results, and a quick return to their normal daily and professional activities. Why I wonder do the medical fraternity ignore this cause in the perpetuation and continuance of pain patterns, they are aware of it. The knowledge and recognition of this type of pain has been in the medical libraries for over a hundred years.

HISTORICAL SPAIN IN MURCIA AND CALASPARRA The city of Murcia has stood on the banks of the River Segura for almost twelve hundred years. Established in the year 825 by the Emir of Cordoba, the notorious Abd al Rahman II. The reliable waters of the River Segura provided the irrigation which caused the city to be surrounded by the orchards which even today is a feature of the small region of Murcia.

The city probably took its name from the Latin word Murtae which means Mulberry. A tree which covers large swathes of the Murcia countryside and in previous centuries led to the growth of a sizeable

silk industry. For the silk worm feeds on the leaves of the Mulberry tree. Even in the heart of the city the large green leaves of the Mulberry tree are to be seen in most of the streets which line the banks of the river. Like all parts of Spain the ruling Moors were eventually replaced by the Christians. In the year 1266 when that great conqueror of the Moors James II of Aragon took the city. Hard times followed. Looted by the troops of the marauding Napoleon Bonaparte in 1810. Then suffering a catastrophic earthquake 1n 1829 which cost 6,000 lives. This was followed by plague and Cholera. Given such a turbulent past, it is with some surprise that today’s visitor to what is now Spain’s 7th largest city finds tree lined streets, bordering the banks of the river Segura. A carpet of grass and flowers sweep elegantly under the trees leading towards the centre of the town . In the “Glorieta” which is a delightful town square we find the impressive town hall. Surrounded by fountains and swaying palm trees. Behind this, one of the great treasures of the city. A powerful and impressive 14-15 century cathedral. This masterpiece of Spanish Baroque building stuns the visitor with its beautifully detailed stonework. From here we can get lost in earlier centuries. Narrow streets lead us to monasteries, theatres, palaces and even the Moorish style patio of the Casino. A building which wasiInspired by the style of the Alhambra in Granada. A visit on Thursday offers us not only the opportunity to absorb the sense of history in the centre but also to shop with the modern citizens of the city in their weekly mar-

ket. We talked earlier of the orchard of the region and it has to be said that the month of March is one of the best times of year to leave the city behind and experience the finest display of natural colour you are likely to find anywhere. Miles and miles of peaches, pears, almonds, apples, olives. All blossoming at the same time in an exciting manifestation of natures response to the warmth of the spring sunshine. Following the course of the river Segura to one of the most stunningly peaceful locations in all of Spain at the lovely Sanctuary at Calasparra. This incredible sanctuary which sits on the river banks with its cave church hewn out of the rocks, and surrounded by pine trees and vines is one of the most stunningly impressive places in the area. Lunch in a locally run restaurant amongst all this beauty is indeed a pleasant and memorable experience. This city and country excursion is being offered by David’s Coachtrips throughout the blossom season every Thursday from 7th March at only 24€ – Including lunch with wine. To experience this special day out call David’s Coachtrips on (0034) 966 78 5910 and reserve your places. You will be glad you did.

LUCKY ESCAPE FOR MÁSMÓVIL’S CEO When Meinrad (Maini) Spenger, the CEO and co-founder of Spanish mobile phone operator MÁSMÓVIL, recently decided to take a well-deserved break from work, after leading the company into the finals of the European Business Awards where they have now been awarded with the Ruban D’Honneur status in the Customer Focus Category, he could have never imagined he was to be saved from a mountain slope, by using a phone from his very own company, MÁSMÓVIL! Maini and two of his friends were skiing along one of the tracks in St. Moritz, in the Swiss Alps, when a huge avalanche struck, burying everything in its path, including the three friends. Dragged 800 metres down the slope, they suffered sustainable injuries and two of the friends ended up being completely buried by snow. Maini on the other hand was trapped, but not completely buried, and eventually managed to free his left arm to reach for his MÁSMÓVIL phone, which, despite being in the Alps, had good enough coverage to phone the rescue services, who arrived by helicopter some 15 minutes later. The friends were flown to the nearest hospital where they were treated for hypothermia and numerous injuries. Maini is currently recovering back home in Spain, where he tells everyone who wants to hear, never to set foot out of the door without having a reliable mobile phone operator! If you would like to know more about MÁSMÓVIL, or to find out where to locate your nearest distributor, go to www.masmovil.es or

phone toll-free number 1473. What’s more, MÁSMÓVIL has just launched Tarifa del Pueblo, a new rate plan, which gives users UNLIMITED CALLS, 1 GB data and 50 free SMS, all for a low monthly quote of 28€ plus IVA, for as long as they wish. This new flat rate is available to new and existing customers who pay by direct debit and sign up before 15th March. Terms and conditions apply.

ORIHUELA POPULATION STILL GROWING The census statistics for Orihuela have now been published, showing that on the first day of this year, the population was 92,000, with the number of registered residents increasing in all districts, although the Orihuela Costa saw the largest growth, with an 1,464 registered residents.

In fact, the gap between the numbers of city and coastal residents is continuing to close, with a difference of just 706, with 33,943 residents in the city, and 33,227 on the coast, the remaining number distributed across the smaller villages of the municipality. The number of residents has increased across the entire municipality in general, and there were more births into the community than those who passed away. In fact, Orihuela mothers brought and additional 605 residents to the area, whereas the grim reaper took away 516. Regarding births, June last year was the busiest,

with a total of 93 new residents being born, with the winter months taking more deaths, in January, November and December, with 80, 70 and 73 respectively. As we break down the gender of residents, there are slightly more men occupying the municipality, with 45,560 men making up 50.36$ of the entire population, although this was a slight decrease in males on the previous year by 0.11%. Cultural diversity is as evident as neighbouring Torrevieja, although the balance is still in favour of the Spanish in Orihuela, with natives accounting for 56.9% of the population. The British are still in second place, with 18,862 inhabitants and 1,440 Irish, but then was see a considerable difference tin comparison to Torrevieja, as Bulgarians are next with 1,774 registered residents, then Moroccans, with 1,357 people on the census. Perhaps not there yet, again in comparison terms, but the Russian population is one of the biggest growing, along with Romania, Norway and Algeria, all of who have increased their numbers in 2012. But things haven´t been total growth in communities, there has been a significant decrease in some populations, most notably from South America, although only in a small number compared to the increases. There are also a selection of other nationalities mixed into the main groups, including residents who originated from Slovenia, Montenegro, Cameroon, Ghana, Guinea, Libya, Mauritius, Tanzania, Jamaica, South Korea, Syria , Azerbaijan and East Timor, but it is with some sadness that last year the municipality lost the only registered resident who originated Equatorial Guinea.

IN THE BUNKER WITH MICK THE GRIP The 208 yard. par three 17th at Pebble Beach, site of some memorable golf shots. Jack Nicklaus's one iron cutting through fierce winds to tap in distance and Tom Watson's miraculous chip in from left of the green come to mind. Stopping on that shallow putting surface must be a nightmare, with the Pacific Ocean threatening. Brandt Snedeker, whose no nonsense style has been compared to Watson’s, made it look easy this month when he won the AT&T National Pro Am. Nice to see that he did it without histrionics as well. James Hahn, who played the final round with Snedeker reported that “The guy is world class on and off the course.” More shades of Watson?

With a win, two seconds and a third this year Snedeker has moved up to No. 4 in the world. Good news for his caddy. Caddies have to meet their own expenses and their rate is negotiable, but in general it’s 10% of their player’s prize for a win, 7% for the top ten and 5% for everything else. This season Scott Vail has earned $300,000, and it’s only February. SCOTLAND RIGHTLY lays claim to the origins of the modern game of golf; it was played there in the 14th century until King James II banned it for interfering with archery practice. However, China has unearthed illustrations of a remarkably similar 10th century game called Chuiwan played by the nobility with jade inlaid sticks, and a Ming Dynasty scroll dated 1368 shows a member of the Imperial Court swinging something resembling a golf club at what looks like a hole in what looks like a green. Is nothing sacred? Speaking of which, St. Andrews is partially altering

nine holes on the Old Course before it hosts the Open in 2015. It is causing howls of protest from Traditionalists, who claim it is like painting a moustache on the Mona Lisa. ON THE U.S. PGA Tour the number of players employing long putters rose to 15% last season, and college coaches have been advocating them to young golfers as the putter of choice. The PGA is still undecided whether or not to enforce the anchor ban. It’s odd that when anchor putters were used only by the aged and infirm and players with the yips nobody worried about them, it’s only since three out of the last five majors were won using long putters that the controversy started. GOLF SHOES ARE getting lighter. On the heels (excuse pun) of the Adidas Adizero Tour which weighs in at 10.6 ounces comes the revolutionary “M” Project range from Footjoy. The minimalist movement in golf footwear stems from the idea that having the feet as close as possible to the ground improves stability, control and lower body movement throughout the swing, so the shoes feature extra front space to let toes spread out and increase grip, and a highly flexible sole. Featuring an exclusive ‘stealth’ cleat for the ‘ultimate in low profile performance’ the lightweight shoes retail at up to £115. The “M” stands for Maximum feel Minimum construction (or More Money Less Shoe.) MIGUEL ANGEL JIMENEZ will miss up to two months of the season after breaking his leg skiing in Andalucia. “I lost control going downhill, these things happen,” he commented philosophically. Jimenez, 48, who became the oldest victor in European Tour history when he won the Hong Kong Open in November, underwent surgery and had two pins inserted just below the knee. Graeme McDowell is opening a bar/restaurant close to the Lake Nona Golf and Country Club in Orlando, where his ‘Dream Home’ is also under construction. Whenever he wins a tournament Graeme rings home to Rathmore Golf Club in Northern Ireland and tells them the drinks are on him. He has promised to introduce the custom in his latest acquisition, so I would imagine his thirsty customers will be rooting for him! Until next time, happy golfing.

TORREVIEJA GOLF SOCIETY AT EL VALLE ON 18TH FEBRUARY At last it is a pleasure to report that for the first time for over a month we were able to enjoy a perfect, warm and sunny day for golf. Gone were the horrendous conditions of the previous Monday when we tried in vain at Font del Llop to battle against bitingly cold winds gusting at times to velocities in excess of 40mph which, coupled with driving showers of hail and sleet, forced us to abandon our game after a few holes to seek the shelter of the Clubhouse. By comparison conditions were positively idyllic for our latest visit to the splendid El Valle course but despite this, disappointingly not one of our members managed to better their handicap in the individual Stableford Competition which we played. As is the custom when we play this course our lady members showed the men the way with Lyn Hills and Rita East both scoring 35 points with Lyn coming out on top by virtue of a better back 9 holes. The full list of winners on the day were: Category 1:

1st Sonny Edling with 34 points. 2nd Geoff Branton with 33 points. 3rd Geoff Walters with 30 points on count back.

Category 2:

1st Lyn Hills with 35 points. 2nd Rita East with 35 points. 3rd John Saunders with 34 points.

Nearest the Pin prizes were won by Geoff Walters, Roy Welburn and Quentin Williams and the 2’s prize fund was shared by Geoff Walters, Roy Welburn and Roy Hills. The football card draw was won this week by Bob McShane. Next week on Monday 25th February we are paying our first visit to the Corvera Golf and Country Club where we shall be playing an individual Stableford Competition for the Mick James Memorial Trophy. Members can find directions to the course and tee times by accessing the new web site or referring to the notice board in the Portobello Bar in Campoverde.

SAN MIGUEL GOLF SOCIETY VISIT LAS COLINAS

Sponsored by Costa Blanca Green Fee Services. Here on the Costa’s golf is one of the biggest leisure time activities for both tourists and resident alike and with this in mind we have secured the services of Mike Probert of Costa Blanca Green Fee Services to provide a weekly round up of local golfing events and topics and in conjunction with us at THE LEADER will provide discounted golf prices to all of our readers and run our golf competitions. Seasonal Golf Pricing Well it hardly seems 5 minutes since I was writing the last golf article on the subject of seasonal golf pricing introducing the winter offers. The bad news is that the good times are almost over because as from 1st March 2013 we have the return of the high season price strategy operated by our Spanish golf courses hosts. Love it or hate it but this strategy will continue to be used while tourist golfers continue to pay the higher prices and believe me they are because trying to get a tee time at courses such as Las Colinas, La Finca and Villamartin in the period between 1st March and 30th April 2013 is almost an impossible task. It would appear that Scandinavian golfers in particular flood to the region in the Spring and return north in the summer months. Unfortunately the resident British golfer has to endure higher prices for their golf during this period on an already stretched pension in many cases. There will be a small number of special deals available during this time and we at the Leader will keep you informed of these as they arise BUT for now why not fill your boots until 28th February 2013 with some cheap golf.

We at THE LEADER are committed to providing to our golfing readers affordable golf without the need to join a club or apply for a card but simply contact the number below to have instant access to discounted golf prices, many of which are exclusive to us. The deals shown in the table are some of the best currently available to you.

Quotation of the week “The Manager has my full support” – Every football Chairman a few days before sacking the Manager.

Las Colinas was the welcome destination for this week’s San Miguel Golf Society meeting. Managed by the highly efficient and professional team from Troon Golf, it certainly is one of the finest courses amongst the many on our circuit up and down the coast. After recently inserting a much improved tee box on the picturesque short par 3 (hole 7) which is only a downhill shot of some one hundred and a few metres, improvement work is still underway on the buggy paths in the same part of the course. Around forty members and guests proceeded to square up to each other in the second round of the “Bogeys Medal Shield”, sponsored for around twenty years by one of the area’s lead-

BENIJOFAR GS Alenda 20-2-13 The February meeting was attended by 18 members. After the rain on we feared the worst but actually enjoyed a great day’s golf on a course that was in very good condition. Alenda has now got the pricing right for societies and this is reflected in the attendance they are having from visiting golfers. We teed off slightly late as there was another society playing in front of us and this did slow play up a bit with the round taking about five hours in total, but sometimes this cannot be helped when larger groups are playing. Nearest the pin winners were Helen Kinsella on the third hole (birdie) and Dave Smith on the fifth (par). On the back nine, the winners were Patrick McInery on the thirteenth (par) and Alec Aspen on the sixteenth (par). In the par three comp, the winner on countback was Dave Smith with ten points and the par fives was won by Mike Bennett on countback with eight points. In the Stableford event, third place was taken by Alan McCombie with a score of thirty four points. Second place was taken by Larry Kinsella with a good score of thirty six points and the overall winner on the day was Michael Swan who came in with a winning score of thirty seven points. We returned to Sams Bar in Quesada for the presentation and food laid on by Maureen which went down well after the golf. Next meeting is at Bonalba 20-313.

ing restaurants which is highly recommended, situated in the very popular Villamartin Plaza. Although quite a long course which could hardly be described as anything approaching “easy”, its slope-rating seems very much under-rated and for mid-handicappers to only receive one extra stroke does appear a little harsh, which was clearly reflected in the scores. NTP’s were won by Marg Birtwistle, Knut Vosko and Ove Andersen who bagged himself two! Ray Harris (net 76) and Mick Cook (82) took this week’s top honours amongst the visitors. Silver division’s top three were John Sorensen in third (81), Marg Birtwistle in second (75)

and David Marshall just clinching first on count-back with his net 75. These scores were mirrored in the Gold category where Graham Cockayne finished third with 76, second went to John Drakesmith (75) with Phil Birtwistle’s 75 just taking top slot on count-back. A difficult day for many saw the “Abacus” award keenly contested once again with Wenche Westburg coming out on top and claiming a very desirable bottle of the finest red variety!

EL PLANTIO 2 GOLF SOCIETY TEXAS SCRAMBLE! A few splatters of rain on the windscreen on the way to El P gave us some scary moments but once on the course it turned out all right so a nice day in front of us although the sun didn’t show up. Dave S had changed his shorts last week back to trousers and rightly so. A change in format as well – problems with identifying enough “young ones”? – so Texas Scramble was chosen for today. 12 players and Roger Marshall returning after a long time had to re-qualify for his handicap. Starting at 09.30 in 4 groups of three I found myself on the 4th with Ray H and John O’B and the prospect of finishing on the 3rd! At first we scored regularly par threes but then the occasional four without the necessary birdie to compensate spoiled the card. We did find the greens though but then the puts wouldn’t drop. Anyway we progressed rapidly over the course losing sight of the groups behind us when other people came in to fill up the gaps. Back on the terrace within two hours we waited for the others to come in. We then heard that Roger during his qualification had scored a hole-in-one on the 5th, which happened to be one the NTP holes. Since he wasn’t in the competition it didn’t count for the NTP but as it was his very first hole-in-one ever we collected the money and got the trophy so Roger will remember this day for a long time. The NTPs went to me on the 5th – so my luck that Roger wasn’t in the competition – and to Ray Housley on the 8th hole. Acceptable scores today with in third place and a score of 51.95 Dave Smith, Dave Swann and Gordon Wayne and in second with a score of 51.7 (slightly higher combined handicap) Ian Henderson, Keith Smith and George Stanhope. The winners by far with 48.91 were Gordon Abba, Frank Stanhope and Dave Collins, well done! Apparently

Dave couldn’t find the greens for the first 10 holes, but then recovered on 4 consecutive holes contributing in a major way to their excellent score. Finally Ray mentioned the only person who wasn’t mentioned during the presentation, John O’Brien, so all is well that ends well. Next Tuesday’s competition 27th February at El Plantio will be the traditional end-of-the-month Medal. Put your name down by the Sunday before and make sure to be there on Tuesday on time well before 09.30. See you all in good health!

SAN MIGUEL BOWLS CLUB

At Roda Golf Club by Gail Coultate An earlier than usual tee time saw us start off in the cold, but gradually the sun managed to shine through and keep the threatening rain clouds away as we gathered at Roda for our first major event of the season, The Claret Jug. We had a rather depleted field due to many reasons, but still 32 members and guests attended to try their hand at winning this coveted trophy. Some tried different means, like Cutsy, who unsuspectingly teed off the Ladies tee on one hole, his excuse was that the colour on the tee markers were not bright enough. Ian Stuart, on the other hand, managed to put together a magnificent score even though he was often playing from different fairways on to the green but it was obviously his day as the results below show, these were: 1st Ian Stuart 41 pts 2nd Bill MacKay 36 pts 3rd Brian Coultate 35 pts 4th Tony Ellis 34 pts Nearest the Pins: Hole 2 Barny Barningham, hole 7, Ian Stuart, hole 11 Gordon Cobb and hole 13 Ian Stuart The 2s Club was shared by Ian Stuart, Paul Flanaghan, Peter Morris and Brian Coultate The free game draw was won by Paul Carter. A celebratory meal was organised at The Lo Crispin Tavern, where we all enjoyed a new menu. After the presentation David and Joan Dodd did a sterling job in setting out a quiz.

SABA Pulsars played at home to La Marina Explores loosing 11-3 Points for 98 Points against 115 Meteors played at home to Greenland’s Maples another hard fought game with the Maples just winning on shots 100 to 102. Points for 5 points against 9.keep up the great fighting spirit our team has. WINTER LEAGUE our game this week was at sunny Finca Guila and with our captain Stuart getting lost on his way from Benidorm that set the theme for the game. Our team included Chris and Val Collier and Chris and Malcolm Parsons who had never been to Finca Guila before so the pace was completely new to them, the pace is not easy for players who have been before. Russell drew the shot on the last end to win by one and give us 2 points Well done Russel.Len Rudges rink were holding shots for a draw only for Finch’s skip to cut the shots down and win by 2. Total shots for 59 against 71 Points for 2 Points against 8. After his recent health scare it was good to see Tommy Dalgleish back playing for San Miguel in the Berleen team and also good to see Dominic back and he went on to take the shots total again. We had to change our usual berleen teams around but after a slow start both teams went on to convincing wins. A. Campbell 18 L. Wilson 12 M.Rogers 24 F. Myers 12. Senior moments were had by two of the San Miguel players, Stuart left his hat behind and Len managed to leave trousers, shoes and wet jacket. Must be an age thing. FINALS WEEKEND Last weekend saw our finals of the Club Championships. We were blessed with good weather and no wind (at last!). The finals were all fiercely contested and the quality of bowling was excellent. There was a good crowd of spectators on both days and we all enjoyed the strong competition played in a competitive, sporting, and friendly atmosphere. These were: Ladies singles - S Marks (runner up - A Eagle); Gents Singles - B Robertson Snr (runner up S Denholm); Ladies Pairs - S Booth and J Farmer (runners up - S Marks and A Eagle); Gents Pairs - N Verity and D Whitney (runners up - L Rudge and T Dalgleish); Mixed Pairs - N Verity and S Verity (runners up - C Collier and V Collier); Mixed Triples - L Rudge, M Dyer, and C Rudge (runners up - D Mathews, J Marshall, and L Plaisted); Mixed Rinks - R Cooper, H Sharpe (playing for R Parker who has a broken rib), A Young, and B Robertson Snr (runners up - L Rudge, M Parsons, C Rudge, and C Parsons).

EL RANCHO BOWLS CLUB

Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th Montemar Mixed Rinks Over the weekend the supporters enjoyed watching some very good bowling from the 24 teams in this tournament. San Luis were the eventual winners against a Montemar team in the final. The play off for third place was won by Greenlands when they overcame another Montemar team. Monday 18th February SABA Discovery League The Picadors played away against Greenlands Chesnuts and came home with an excellent result winning on 4 rinks and loosing on just 2.

Points 104, Shots 113-104 Monday 18th February SABA Discovery League At home to Country Bowls Supernovas, Montemar Novilleros won two rinks and drew one. The other results were close but went the way of the opposition. Well done to the winning rinks, David Smy, Denise Ashberry & Dave Melville; Fred Charman, Wendy Oxley & John Corbet. Hard luck to the rink that drew, Simon Morris, June Young & Bill Young, it was a close last couple of ends and could have gone either way. Points 5-9, Shots 102-108 Wednesday 20th February Winter League against Quesada. Playing away today we only managed a win on one rink. Well done the team of Pauline and Barrie Woodfine, Colin Armitage and Roy Mercer who won 16 - 12. Unfortunately the Berleen team were also beaten, so overall not such a good day at the office. Points 2-8, Shots 56-88

Friday 22th February Southern League Division A. At home to San Luis Lions the Matadors won on four rinks, lost on two rinks and had the most overall shots. Well played to all the team. Points 104, Shots 98-95 Friday 22th February Southern League Division C. Not our best performance today away to La Marina Seagulls. We lost on all six rinks and hence the overall shots.

Monday found the Broncos at home to La Siesta Pioneers, ending in a good win for the Broncos, taking 5 rinks and drawing the other. The Pintos were away to San Luis Vulcans and fought hard in a match closer than the scores suggest, especially Stew Hamill’s game which was very close, even going into last end, as was Bill Chapman’s. Friday morning found The Raiders playing host the Country Bowls Harvesters, the company was great, but bowling conditions were varying and tricky.

SOUTHERN LEAGUE 2012/2013

QUESADA BOWLS CLUB

SABA WINTER TRIPLES

by Doug Beattie Panthers Report - The Panthers were away to Emerald Isle Leprechauns and looked to be on for a good win. However, despite being up on all rinks after 9 ends the dreaded wind put in an appearance which totally changed the pace of the game. The honours this week go to Dave Donovan, Nick Birch, Jason Prokopowycz and skip Pete Bonsor for a tremendous result 26-7 against Geoff Farrington's four. Derek Sales' four, Peta Rhodes, Deidre Leeming and Graham Phillips were 17-16 up and holding shot on the last end, when E.I, skip Jim Mulloy found a good line and ran the jack to take 4 shots. Jack Martin's team, George Carnell, Veronica Sales, and Pearl Houghton looked to be cruising to a win but dropped 9 shots in three ends to give the Isle a win. Result 4-4 (57-45). Swallows Report - On 15th Feb the Swallows were at home to the la Siesta Golds and won the match 9 points to 5. The winning teams being;Ann Thomas, Glynis Chapman, Steve Gray; Tina Brinton, Jo Brinton, Tom Hill; Lisa Bonsor, Chris Brazier, Pete Bonson; and the team that drew gaining 9 shots in the last 3 ends, Cathy Skinner, Brian Trinder, George Skinner. Diamonds Report - Quesada Diamonds away to La Siesta Sputnicks Mon 18 Feb 2013. Diamonds won on 5 rinks, and lost on 1 rink the overall score 116 to 84. 12 points to Quesada Diamonds and 2 points to La Siesta Sputnicks. Congratulations to the winning rinks of, Doug Beattie, Ann Linley and Carol Waterson; Barry Armstrong, Brian Trinder and Cathy Skinner; Gerry Linley, Glynis Chapman and Cas Blay; Pete Bradbury, Tina Brinton and Maureen Bowness; Joe Brinton, Rob Pinfold and Dorothy Benson. Thanks to La Siesta for allowing Quesada to play a friendly on their spare rink. Special thanks to the Quesada players who stood in to make up the team after late withdrawals. Thanks to La Siesta for an enjoyable mornings bowling in beautiful weather. Enterprise League - In the Enterprise League, firstly apologies from the Captain to the Pearls for not submitting the report on the game at home to San Miguel Meteors on 11th February but they got back to winning ways with a more than acceptable 10 points to 4 points , 109 - 104 shots win against very strong opposition to leapfrog them in the table and move up to 3rd. A week later at home to La Siesta Apollos another close game resulted in the reverse score line. Obviously 17 was a popular number for Quesada as four of the home rinks achieved that score. One being a winning number but for the 3 others a losing score, albeit for them, by a combined total of only 5 shots. Already doomed to a home defeat the result was made worse by the last wood of the whole match which prevented the Pearls getting some consolation of an overall shots win. Congratulations to the winning triples of Peta Rhodes, Graham Phillips, 'Chip' Chapman and the 'H' team ! Brian Houghton, William Holtham and Pearl Houghton. Points:- Quesada 4 La Siesta 10, Shots:- 100 - 101. Despite the loss, the Pearls remain in 3rd place. Fed Fours ....... Panthers Report - The Panthers played Greenlands Bulls. A good result 6-4 (shots 60-42). Congratulations to Chip Chapman, Violet Campbell, Jackie Breslin and skip Fred Roberts who only conceded 5 ends in the whole match to win 22-9 against Brian Pocock's four. Another good win for William Holtham, Diane Lawton, Graham Phillips and Derek Sale 21-15 against Steve Cantley's rink. What a nailbiter for Pete Bonsor's four, Dave Donovan, Nigel Baigent and Jason Prokopowycz which went down to the wire 17-17 on the last and holding match, but a great wood by Sandra Heath took our shot wood out to win the game 17-18. Leopards report - The Leopards failed to make use of home advantage and manged only 1 point from one drawn rink. The other 2 rinks lost heavily resulting in shots of 69 to country bowls and 39 Quesada. Final score of 7 points to 1in favour of Country Bowls

HORADADA BOWLS CLUB

LA MANGA CRUSADERS

A home game against La Siesta Gold resulted in another good win for the Royals this week. This win will maintain the Royal's position at the top of the Southern Division B table. Keep focused and determined for the last few games. Winning rinks: Kath Reid, Tony Burchall and Giuseppi Galelli 21 - 15; Yvonne Hurlock, Bryan Guppy and Mick Blunt 26 - 9; Wayne Jackson, John Bailey and Alan Pugh 24 -23; Bryan Eatough; Roy Thompson and Terry Hucknall 21 - 13. Hard luck to the other 2 rinks for losing by 1 shot. Final result Shots 124 for and 94 against Points 10 - 4 On Monday 18th feb, Horadada Falcons travelled to Greenlands to tackle the Sycamores. It was a long time coming, but what a good result for the Falcons, winning 11 points to 3. Well done Team! Let's try for more results like this. Final score being Falcons 11 points and 110 shots; Sycamores 3 points and 93 shots. Winning rinks Yvonne Hurlock, Tony Burchall and John Hurlock 15 - 13 ; Rose Guppy, Ann Hartley and Mick Blunt 21 - 13; Bryan Eatough, Roy Collins and Mike Douglas 21 -21; Wayne Jackson, Kath Reid and Giuseppe Galelli 17 - 14; Maureen Semper, Ian Hamblett and Terry Hucknall 22- 8 A home game for our Fed 4's gave us no advantage this week against Greenlands Bears. No points gained from this one. However, next week provides another chance for us to play at the level we know we are capable of. In the Voyager league, the Condors were at home to Vistabella Eagles this week. The 2 points gained from this match by the Condors came from the winning trip of Liz Elis, Peter Pitt and TonyTrodd. Well done to the three of you. Three of our team participated in the Scotland V Wales game recently played; based on shots this game ended in a draw. However, Wales won on 4 rinks to the 2 won by Scotland, I had to mention this being Welsh. Well done to Barry Evans and Alan Pugh who won on their rinks for Wales, and to John Wilson who skipped one of the winning rinks for Scotland. One last thing, to members of Horadada Bowls Club and/or their families who have been experiencing difficulties with their health recently we wish you the best.

Following last week's crushing defeat in the hands of San Luis Blues where we managed to get 2 points, we held the men's and lady's drawn pairs competition over the weekend. What scintillating bowls were on display with a number of matches going to the last end. The spectators braving the cooler weather, dressed in their wooly hats and coats, were treated to some nail biting bowling during the semi-finals and finals held on the Sunday. The men's final was eventually won by Robin Lowman and David Letby and the Lady's by Sue Letby and Liz Mildon who must be congratulated in winning her first tournament having only recently started bowling. This week's home match against Mazarron Miners was a challenge for both teams with a fast green and a side wind. However, La Manga Crusaders managed the condititions better and achieved a 140-63 victory and 12 points; Dave Green, Jane Salter and Jim Tarrant having won their rink for the Miners by 18-12. La Manga Crusaders scores were:- Ron Stokes/John Grace/Robin Lowman 27-8, Dave Robertson/Sandra Robertson/Barry Simpson 20-9, Sarah Lowman/Stuart Fisher/Dick Osguthorpe 26-8, Nick Mildon/Wendy Simpson/Brian Simon 20-14, Liz Mildon/Ann Grace/Sue Letby 35-6, Ully Simon/Elizabeth Warwick/Michael Warwick 12-18.

GREENLANDS BOWLS CLUB By Steve Hibberd No doubt which result took pride of place last week. Against all odds, Greenlands Premier 20 side beat a strong team from San Luis by 10 points to 6. This well deserved victory has earned GBC a place in the final against Javea. Hats off to home based G Bater who convincingly won the singles 21-3, and the pairs team of S Hibberd & S Heath, who came back from the dead to triumph 20-19. Special thanks to Jim Reeves for marking the singles. But it was the 3 disciplines that won away, who really stole the show. S Cantley (21-11) singles, S Stead, J & B Pocock (22-13) trips, plus B Sims, W Latham, L Greenland, B Latham (23-12) rinks, pulled off a magnificent set of results. In the top SABA league, both our teams were in action. At home, Sycamores must have felt a bit sick, as they went down 3-11 to Horadada Falcons. Take a bow: Z Wilcock, M Lockley, B Miller 24-14. E Merrick, J Wilcock, Pete Tomkins 21-21. Over at San Miguel, Averil's Maples met the Meteors. Three wins and a draw, were supplemented with a 2 shots advantage, as they won 9-5. Jolly well done: C Thomas, J Pocock, M Brown 25-10. B Tomlin, F Tilley, V Mahomet 17-12. M Mackay, S Hibberd, S Heath 23-17. S Stead, S Mahomet, B Pocock 15-15. La Siesta was the venue for the winter leaguers, who won 6 (68) - 4 (65). Winning rinks: N Bater, T Hodges, B Collins, D Greenland 18-10. D Watts, T Coombs, M Veale, S Cantley 22-19. Berleen team lost 0-2, even though J Collins, S Johnson, T Sambrook & Penny Tomkins won their rink 16-12. The Fed 4s have reached the 2nd round of matches, so it was off to Quesada for the Bulls, who took on QBC Panthers. Even though they lost 6-2, it was a spirited performance by a small, but committed (dedicated as opposed to institutionalised!) bunch of bowlers. Bulls eye: G Bater, A Toozer, S Heath, S Hibberd 18-17. Marilyn's Bears continued their good run, with a superb 8-0 victory at Horadadadada. Bear with me: F Tilley, C Thomas, P Lockley, A Goodfellow 22-19. T Sambrook, Penny Tomkins, F & M Edwards 17-15. M Lockley, S Johnson, T Hodges, M Fryatt 2217.

15 February: Both the Cavaliers and the Claymores hosted home games, against Greenlands Oaks and San Miguel Cougars respectively. It's always pleasing to report when your home team wins, so to report that both teams achieved good wins will give everyone a big lift after a difficult season. The Cavaliers had an emphatic win against Greenlands Oaks, the biggest win being 29-4 by Chris Ayling, Glenda Odell and Jim Mulloy - well bowled! A few more like this will go down very nicely, thank you. Shots for - 127, against 87. 10 points to EI against 4 for Greenlands. The Claymores vs San Miguel Cougars promised to be a much tougher game, and so it proved to be with EI winning on 3 rinks, San Miguel on 2 and 1 rink drawn, giving EI a shot difference of 91 against 89. 9 points to 5 - it doesn't get much closer, but a good win for the Claymores. Let's hope there's more like this to come. 18 February: The Moonrakers travelled to play Vistabella Albatrosses on a lovely sunny day, great for bowling with all 8 rinks played on. However, the Albatrosses swooped low over the greens to achieve a clean sweep, winning by the very tight martin of 14 points to our ZERO. Shot difference was 131 shots to the Albatrosses, 67 to EI. The only success was on 1 rink in a 'Friendly' - 15 shots to 9. Well done to Lorraine Taylor, Ed McLaughlin and Elwyn Morris - at least they were happy. Also on 18th, a very big game between two teams at the top of the League, EI Titans vs San Luis Klingons, a beautiful day in ideal bowling conditions but resulting in a win for the Klingons by 8 points to 6, but the shot difference went to the Titans - 99 to 95, thanks mainly to Brian Duff, Graham Roberts and Marilyn Shatwell - 35 shots to 5. However, it's still all to be played for and the pressure is on! Fed Fours: The latest information on Fed Fours is that the games are not going too well at the moment for EI's Leprechauns. The 'little green men' seem to have deserted the rinks. Having drawn the points 4-4 with Quesada Panthers unfortunately the shot difference went against EI with 45 shots to 57. Perhaps a wee drop of the hard stuff before the game would help? Just a thought! Bill Allen.

Current champions Meerkats threw away their slim

chance of silverware by dropping a home point against the Pirates of PB´s, themselves looking very capable of taking the Hattons League Plate on presentation night. The Bulls faced a difficult task on their visit to a strong Madigans side. The home side have had the experience of Des Field this season who has played some exceptional darts. Two relative newcomers to the game have benefited by his presence firstly Leah Chesworth 101,108,112 and Jim Macey-Lillie who played for the Kats two seasons ago. Macey-Lillie managed some powerful scoring in the match and not for the first time. His contribution of 3x100 and 2x140 really put the Bulls on their back foot. The spoils were shared at half time with a draw looking the likely result. Field played his normal game finishing 80 on T16,D16 against Trevor Hartley, whilst also contributing 3x100 and 121. Martin Hastings 133 took out Federation player Mick McGivern to make it 5-6, the Fed playing well all night with 3x100,140. Terry Hagenaars was last on for the Bulls and didn’t let captain Amanda Skinner down as he powered his way down to the double finishing second dart. His efforts of 3x100,140 were bettered only by team mate Phil Waller 100,121,130 and 140. The Bulls keep their two point cushion at the top, Gogarty´s having a game in hand against the Hyenas which will be no push over subject to their full squad availablity. Gogarty´s as expected over run the Mixtures with a fine display of arrow throwing that is upping the benchmark each week. Their average legs per match is now 9.35. The Meerkats winning average last season albeit over 30 matches was 9.06. Although slow starters, the Mixtures could have nicked the first leg, they can quickly up the tempo. Young Jack Todd took the first leg on D10 and then Chris O´Brian 100,85, Ali O´Keef 100 and Paul Easton 85,121,D10 showed their opponents what they are capable of, winning the first triple. Todd then made it 3-0 on D20. All three pairs went the Gopher´s way O´Keef D20, then reigning pairs champions O´Brien and James Brown S19,D20 making it 5-0. Lorraine Cox and Tracey Simpson faced the formidable pairing of Todd and Kevin Fitzpatrick and acquitted themselves well in a high scoring leg, but that man Todd 100,81 and S16,D20 takes no prisoners, for a 6-0 half time scoreline. Brown was back to first man after the refreshment break and duly hit 100,95,95 and D10 for both championship points. Mixture Graham Cox got to the double in his singles but didn’t get the opportunity of capitalising on his high scoring. O´Keef is in mean mood of late and took no pity on the sweet Jade Cox hitting an impressive 100,100,100,91

then setting up for D4 which he promptly slotted home first dart. Bully! Tracey Simpson missed a 92 out and then paid the price as Todd slotted home his fourth double of the night. The twelfth and last leg featured Fitzpatrick v. Lorraine Cox for the face saver or whitewash. It was to be the former as the Gopher couldn’t hit his double, but Cox did on D2. Man of the match was Jack Todd who with his team mates mustered a very impressive 21 ton pluses during the evening. The Hyenas made the short trip down to Los Dolses to face Sonya Cooper´s Sporting Misfits. The first three legs went to the visitors, Geoff Harvey excelling himself in the team game hitting 140,132 and D2 and then S19,D20 in the second triple. Sonya and son Karl reduced the deficit in the opening pair only for the Hyenas to take the next two for 1-5 at half time. Ron Young gave the home side their second leg of the evening before the visitors polished off the remaining singles. Hub captain Simon Williams pronounced Joe Miller man of the match and complimented the Sporting Life´s chef on the excellent refreshments. A surprisingly comfortable victory awaited the Hunks when they visited Playa Flamenca´s Busters bar. Hattons found themselves 6-0 up at half time before Busters retrieved a leg against Jake Hawkins. Brother Joe ensured the points in the next and was his team´s man of the match hitting 3 of the available 4 doubles in the match. Stewart McCullouch was top scorer with 140, Martin Sears recorded a 125. Meerkats chance of league honours took a real dent at the hands of PB´s this week. The Pirates took an early opportunity of missed doubles by the Kats (19 darts) in the team game via Peter Ayre on D9. Alex Nikolov levelled on D10 in the next and then Brian Nash 100 and Ray Hayes 100,D6 made it 1-2. John Eyre 100 and D18 made it all square after 4, despite some heavy scoring from Nash 138 and Ayre 100. Further high scoring from Hayes 140, Paul Durrant 140 and Jim Cheevers 100 resulted in the scores level at half time. Nikolov 100 and Eyre 100 added two more to the Kats tally, before Hayes 105 andf D2 made it 5-4. Sanderson D6 and Ayre D5 gave the Pirates their chance of an unexpected victory however Alan Ostrowski held his nerve to slot D3 home over Cheevers after both had numerous opportunities. It was a game of missed doubles which is likely to cost the Kats dearly, nevertheless a fine fighting performance from the Pirates.

JORGE HEADER EARNS VITAL POINT FOR TORRY AT SAGUNTINO AT SAGUNTINO.................1 FC TORREVIEJA...............1 In front of a large crowd, Torry battled hard to earn a point at Saguntino. Before start of play, Torry were still very much in the relegation dog fight down in 14th place, whilst the host club were very much in the hunt for a play of slot, lying in 7th. The long trip to just north of Valencia, didn't appear to affect Torry, as they made all the early running. Jose blasted high and wide, then the same player headed over, before captain marvel Jorge nodded home from a free kick, giving Torry the lead. Tur made a great save with his legs to prevent a certain equaliser, whilst up the other end, a Saguntino defender cleared off his line. In a see-saw match, Saguntino's appeals for a penalty were turned down, as they started to take control.

Towards the end of the 1st half, Torry keeper Tur made a great save at the foot of the near post, but into stoppage time, he flicked a free kick onto the bar, only for the rebound to be converted from close range. Saguntino had the lions share of the 2nd half, but failed to capitalize on chances created. Apart from a surging 50 yard run by Jorge, and a stoppage time foray by Gasch, which led to a weak finish from sub Manu, they were forced to defend for long periods, and must be grateful for another vital point. Next up for Torry, is a home div 3 match at Nelson Mendela Stadium on Sun 3 Mar, ko 5pm, against 6th place Villarreal 'C'.

BLOW TO REDS TITLE AMBITIONS VILLAJOYOSA CF ........2 UD HORADADA ............1 After such a good recent run we might now be asking ourselves if the wheels have finally dropped off the Horadada season. With two defeats in as many weeks, seven days ago against the run of play to league leaders and on Sunday, an even more disappointing reversal, albeit on the road, at the hands of lowly Villajoyosa. And while the Reds failed to pick up a point rivals Almoradi claimed all six, the margin by which they now lead Horadada in the chase to the Preferente title. In a goal less first half it was the visitors who forced the play but despite the lion’s share of possession it was the same old story, boiling down to a lack of imagination as they got close to the Villajoyosa goal. With Vardan having a ‘mare’ there seemed no one capable of putting the ball into the net. The second period was even worse. A rare off day for Campillo saw the Villa winger Pedro giving the big man the run around. The only real surprise was that it

took so long for the home side to break the Reds down, a full 60 minutes before a series of crosses ended with the ball dropping to Toni who converted from close range. Villa doubled their lead in the final minutes of the game with a goal that really was worth the wait. With 88 minutes on the clock a cross was met in the middle by Obeja who hit a spectacular volley to secure the points. In fairness to the visitors they still continued to have a go and although it was only a consolation replacement Samu got his 2nd of the season in added time from a Salinas pass. Once again there seemed little imagination up front for Horadada, even with a majority of possession and the addition of the much lauded Salinas to the starting lineup. And things are unlikely to get much easier next Sunday with the visit to the Ikomar of playoff chasing Contestano who, with money behind them, are pushing for the 2nd consecutive promotion.

UPW ARDLY MOBILE THADER CD THADER .....................1 ALICANTE CF ‘B’ .............0 Thader were hoping to continue with their good run of recent home form which could help them on their upward travels. First strange thing of the afternoon, the ref started the game and then stopped it for a minute’s silence (strange). We all hoped that it wasn’t a sign of things to come. The visitors were very leaden footed during the opening passages of play and a pressing Thader allowed Nino to shoot past Alberto to fire the home side into an early lead. We are agreed that Thader now need to continue the pressure and not let Alicante settle. We had hardly got into the game and the visitors lost Hucha, first a yellow and then another for not keeping quiet. Some people never learn. Alicante were reduced to ten shortly after which Pazos pulled off a terrific save that just about summed up what was happening, Thader by no means taking advantage of the extra man. They need to be more audacious, the result being that the half has gone a little flat. The ten men are playing more open football but Thader still manage to go in one up The second period got underway but I couldn’t see

that anything had been said to change the game. The ten men were still working the hardest. Thader seem intent on letting the visitors play but then, as their chances arose, not one player seemed willing to take on the responsibility of shooting. The fans are seeing this and getting restless. By now things have really deteriorated and a foul on Adrian saw him dismissed for diving, having so obviously been tripped, as the referee administered a 2nd yellow. Everything with regards to the football had gone and Alicante were awarded a soft penalty. Up stepped Iker who put the ball past Pazos, but it has to be re taken for an infringement. This time it was well saved and Thader who can breathe again. Alicante then lost another player and are reduced to nine. Of late I have refrained from remarks about refs but this one turned the game into nothing more than a Brian Rix farce with 11 yellows and 3 reds, including one from the visitor’s bench. He was lucky not to cause a riot amongst the visiting fans as their emotions were running high. Still, it was another three points Next week away to Callosa

CF MIL PALMERAS WEEKLY ROUNDUP CF Mil Palmeras Pre-Bens 06 1 Rafal 11

CF Mil Palmeras Alevines 2 Albatera 3

Sponsored by Fuego La Fuente This was a match where the youngest Toros lack of experiance and confidence showed which was a shame because they gave everything they had.With 7 very strong players Rafal dominated the game but didn't have it all there own way .The Toros battled hard to force Rafal back time and again but couldn't make the most of their chances finishing the first half 06 .Second half was better from the Toros pushing hard for a goal but Rafals counter attacks where quick and decisive . Elliott Godden hammered the ball home from well outside the area to grab the Toros only goal to make the final score 1-11 .One of those matches where the result doesn't reflect the amount of effort put in by everyone of the Toros and next week will come back fighting even harder next week . Player of the Match Kevin Ruiz. Well Done to all players .

Sponsored by Talleres J Martinez Ford garage With a much better perNeve Bradley, the formance than the inept Alevin goalscorer display last week Mil Palmeras battled hard all over the park and were unlucky as the ball just wouldn't break for temporary striker Luke Naylor on numerous occasions. With Jamie back in the 'hole' position and Cristian , Cai and Melody playing well at the back we looked a bit more like it going forward. Nevertheless it was a big improvement from last week. After 15 minutes of deadlock the away team took the lead when a mix up between Angel and Cristian lead to a goal for Albatera when they could of dealt with it if they had talked to each other.But again we came from behind to level when Luke bravely challenged for a 50/50 ball it broke loose to Neve Bradley 12 yards out who coolly slotted into the corner of the net for her first goal of the season, minutes later we could have taken the lead when Cristian Madrid rattled the post from 30 yards out.half time 1-1. The second half was much the same with the home side putting on loads of pressure with no avail.Albatera were happy just to punt it long from the goalkeeper time after time. Halfway through Mil Palmeras were behind again when a sloppy throw in lead to giving possession away deep in our own half and left an easy rap in for Albatera.But once again we came from behind to level when Luke Naylors shot was saved but came out to Lewis Long who finished it beautifully.With three minutes left Came goal of the game, unfortunately it was for the visitors when the ball broke loose on the left their forward lashed an unstoppable shot into the top corner via the post to sicken the home crowd. Nevermind the effort was there for all to see. Man of the match Emily Kelly big improvement.

CF Mil Palmeras Benjamines 5 Jacarilla A 2 Sponsored by Sunshine FM 102.8 From the off Mil Palmeras dominated the game only to give away a freekick on the edge of the area which Jacarilla converted to take the lead in the 5th min . There lead was short lived with Ben Naylor scoring 2 mins later .With Luke Naylor at the back dealing with Jacarilla's long balls and Paolo Webb and Niomi Sheffield picking off the oppositions crosses the Toros where solid at the back allowing the midfield time and space to work their magic .Ben again picked Luca Webb out in the crowded box for him to slot the ball home then moments later David Milton-Stamm crossed for Ben to finish to make it 3-1 . Bailey Tomlinson fought hard in midfield linking up with David ,Ben and Luca until Ben was fouled just outside the area .David calmly stepped up and hammered the ball round the wall to beat the keeper to finish the half 4-1 . The second half was a more solid performance from the away team but the Toros still created plenty of chances . Just over ten mins in and the Toros got caught out of position letting Jacarilla in to the box to slot the ball home . With Bailey making some cracking saves and the defense closing Jacarilla down again the Toros pushed on with first Diego Sheffield and then Kevin Ruiz giving there defense problems .Somehow we had to wait until just before the end of the match for Ben to finish David's cross to bag a hattrick and to finish the match 5-2 . Another very solid team performance keeps the Toros at the top of the league. Player of the Match Bailey Tomlinson for composure through out the match. Well Done Toros .
