Manager Galliana has made the signing that all Torry fans have wanted to see. Last season, a long haired central defender arrived from a Mexican club, filling the place of transferred Jorge. Although he’s been shorn of his locks, Alexis is a rock in defence, and now he will have the luxury of pairing up with the returning Jorge – what a combination!! Another central defender from last season has decided to stay on at the club.
Martin can also play in midfield, and certainly won over the Torry faithful with his no nonsense attitude. Unfortunately both Micro and Dani Meseguer, who had previously indicated a willingness to stay, have now decided to ply their trade elsewhere. But when one door shuts, another opens, which certainly is the case at new look Torry. Midfielder Borja Cortes has signed terms from div 3 side Novelda, linking up with Sergi, who makes the short journey from Orihuela (who incidentally have major money problems, and are now know as Orihuela Deportivo). A prolific goal scorer is on every manager’s wish list, so Galiana must be hoping that new boy Carlitos fits the bill. Joining from Xerez, the 23 year old notched up 12 of the best last season, and although it was at a lower level, he obviously has a knack at finding the net.
Also arriving are 4 youth players from Elche, of which 1 is a local lad, pushing the number of home grown talent up to 4. Ruben is a 19 year old Torrevieja born defender, who teams up with 19 year old full back Bern, a player credited with international honours at youth level. Joining them will be 20 year old midfielder Mario, and 19 year old goalkeeper Marcos.
With players now back in training, some pre season friendly dates have been released (all at Vicente Garcia Stadium):
Saturday 26 July – CD Torrevieja v Elche Ilicitano (div 2B) – ko 8pm
Tuesday 12 August – CD Torrevieja v Lorca (div 2B) – ko 8pm
Wednesday 20 August – CD Torrevieja v Mar Menor (div 3) – ko 7.30 pm
Don’t forget that season tickets are now on sale at the club on Weds evenings, and at the Torry Army office, at a knock down price of only 90 euros. VAMOS TORRY.
