CD Montesinos are away to play F.B Redovan C.F.
on Sunday 23rd October 2016,
Away supporters to meet at Bar Tambalache, Los Montesinos, at 3.00pm.
Campo Municipal de Redovan F-11
S/N.De la Fortuna,
After last Sunday’s emphatic win, let’s give the boys some support.
On Sunday 16th October,
CD Montesinos are at home
to play CF Racing Playas de Orihuela “A”.
Sponsor is Jacarilla Jim
To all members.
We at the headquarters of the Full Monte are experiencing a lot of difficulty with e-mails. Investigations have revealed that the fault is being replicated on 3 different computers at 3 different Committee Member’s houses. The fault is therefore with Outlook, and is totally out of our control. Steps are being taken to rectify this.
MEET THE MANAGER…….CARLOS PEREZ
Having just “landed” in the CD Montesinos hot seat, Carlos Perez (Juan Carlos Perez Olano) was good enough to sit down and have a coffee with me before Tuesday night´s training session. Carlos, who took over from previous manager Camacho the previous night, is an experienced manager who comes to us after spending five seasons at Torrevieja CF, with whom he won promotion two seasons ago.
Carlos Perez, who has run his own insurance company in Torrevieja for the past 14 years, arrived in Torrevieja 20 years ago. He had been taken from his home town near Leon by his parents to Germany as a youngster and returned to trial with Valencia CF before finally playing for their reserve side, Mestalla.
On leaving Mestalla he went on a long journey playing for clubs all over Spain including Alcoyano, Numancia, Melilla and a host of other sides before ending up in Torrevieja towards the end of his career where he played for the Torrevieja side managed by Macan in the 2002/3 season. Once his playing days were behind him, Carlos took up management at clubs like Bigastro (who he got promotion with), Guardamar and then Torrevieja CF with whom he also won promotion.
So how did he end up with us here at “Monte”? Carlos takes up the story….
“When I left Torrevieja CF after five good seasons, I was naturally disappointed. But that’s football and those of us involved in the management part of the game understand that these things happen. During pre-season I came and watched one of the matches at the Municipal and was impressed with the set up. It struck me that this was a well run club. I also knew some of the committee members and noticed the excellent support at the club even though it was a friendly. The next thing I know is late last Sunday evening the club got in touch with me, explained the situation and asked me to take over, which I did on Monday night at the training session”.
I then went on to ask Carlos what his impressions were of the team he has inherited.
“It´s difficult for me to answer that question truthfully as I have, literally, just taken over. But from the little I have seen I feel there is enough to work with. We are probably a little short on fitness and perhaps some of the player´s confidence has been “knocked” after two big defeats. We also need to factor in the injuries and suspensions we have to important players. I do however feel that once those players start to come back, we will have a competitive side”
Finally I asked him if he knew about the Full Monte supporters club we have here.
“Most definately. Everybody connected with the club speaks very highly about the Full Monte and all the great work you do for the Club. I was lucky enough to live something like this years ago at Torrevieja and still remember the fantastic support we got there. I am also amazed at the attendance figures this club gets and I am sure that is also down to the Full Monte in a big way. I am looking forward to help increase the crowd figures although I am realistic enough to know that more people will only come to watch us IF we start winning and playing good football. It will be a pleasure to meet as many of you as possible, so when you see me at the ground, come over and say hello or hola etc”
It goes without saying that we wish Carlos and his assistant, Angel Ivan, lots of luck. Patience and encouragement are needed at this difficult time, but I suspect that Carlos Perez knows very well what he has to do and how to do it.
For our part, we need to give him and the players as much support as possible starting this Sunday where he has already organised a friendly at home against Montesinos Todo-Deporte, with a 5pm kick off as a way of trying out some new players etc.
CD Montesinos will entertain Todo Deporte in a friendly game, on Sunday 9th October, kick-off 5.00pm.
At an emergency meeting of the Football Club’s Committee, immediately following today’s performance, and in addition to the poor display at Benijofar, the Committee have sacked Manager Camacho. The new Manager is known, but full details not yet released. This will be placed on the usual media as soon as known.
Monte’s first home game of the season is against CD Murada on Sunday 2nd October 2016,kick-off is 5.00pm.
Hopefully season tickets will be on sale at the gate.
Oh the joy of it all!! The chaos continues!!
Now CD XTX Sport Horadada have also pulled out of the league, but the upshot of this is that the Spanish FA are not going to change the fixtures!! This now means that Monte have at least 7 rest days along with the usual festivity breaks. It is likely that if Monte has too much of a break between games, they will ‘phone another club in a similar position, and arrange to play the fixture to suit each other. This virtually makes a fixture list useless. So all we can ask you to do is keep checking the usual sites and your e-mails for up to date information. There will also, hopefully, be regular friendly games. All this is totally out of the control of the Club, and of course the Committee. It also means that winning games is vital to stay at the top of the table, so your support is now more than ever required. The Club has approached Eddie with an offer of about 10euro return for existing season ticket holders, and the new price will be shown as soon as we know.
Going for a lie-down.
It seems that the Spanish FA were aware of Oriol leaving the league last Tuesday and changed the fixtures without telling anyone. Then on Friday Torrevieja pulled out of the league needing more fixture changes, again without telling anyone. Felipe only discovered this on Sunday himself. Why these cancelled matches couldn’t be rest days, no-one knows, but in the wisdom of Spanish FA, other games listed have also been changed. We will try to organise this new fixture list asap, but not known if we’re going to the expense of another fixture card at the moment, 150euro lost!! Ref’ the Season tickets, there will be alterations to the price, and refunds to existing buyers. Please be aware this is not a Club or Committee error, but solely the Spanish FA, and we’re doing our best to correct the situation.
Lot going on behind the scenes which the Committee is trying to solve. Manager in the stand because his Manager’s licence hadn’t been received!!!! NO game next week because at least 2 teams have pulled out of an already depleted league. The recently produced fixtures card at considerable cost totally useless. Needless to say I am personally *****d off. None of this is a Committee fault, all of this is late news to us too.
CD Montesinos v Bigastro 10th Sept’
A typical end to end game, both sides attacking and defending. Very few corners and shots on target. Macan scored for Monte just before half-time. Bigastro scoring just after the break to finish the game 1 – 1. The game surprisingly finished 15 minutes early due to Bigastro having NO sub’s, so the length of game was agreed by captains and ref’ before the game started.
Extra match organised.
Home game against Formentera.
This Wednesday 7th September.
A 4 – 0 Monte win for a very youthful side as most of our regulars are either being rested, working or injured.
On Saturday Monte lost 1-2 at Home to Racing San Miguel.
Fixtures 2016/2017 now on fixtures page.
The fixtures have been listed with the 1st game and return

The match is on Friday 12th August, kick-off at 9.00pm.
We believe the entrance is free, but will update you if necessary.
Season tickets will be on sale for 30euro. I have 10 such tickets (numbers :- 5, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16), first come first served, but I’m sure there will be others available in the ground.
Latest Squad news see SQUAD page.
Latest Pre season Fixtures list see FIXTURES page.
Although an official kick off date to the new season (2016/17) has yet to be confirmed by the Valencia Football Association, there are a number of interesting developments at CD Montesinos.
Jose Ignacio Camacho Pavon “CAMACHO”, our new manager, has brought in eight new players with five of those players coming with him from his previous club, Deportivo Orihuela, one player (Mario Lopez) joining us from Bigastro whilst we welcome back two players. German was with us a couple of years ago but he did not get to play a game as he sustained a long term injury in the first of the pre-season matches. The BIG news for the club is the return of our all-time leading scorer, Vazquiño, who comes back to his “home” after one season away at 1st Regional Saladar where he finished the season as top scorer.
The new players have been added to some of last season´s squad plus some players from the very successful youth side to make up a squad of 21 players to start pre-season, which has now been confirmed as the 3rd of August.
Another novelty for this season is that we now have season tickets on sale for all the league matches. The price is 30e for the whole season and these are now on sale via the supporters club (The Full Monte) or at any of the pre-season matches. We also have a full range of club merchandise on sale on match days including caps, polo’s, replica team shirts, scarfs etc.
Membership fees are now due and again these can be renewed at the ground on match days or by getting in touch with the supporters club. New members are always very welcomed at the club and families are particularly welcomed to this small but friendly football club.
Matches are normally played on a Sunday afternoon with entry price to all home league matches kept at last season´s level, 2e per person which includes you in the match day raffle.
Season tickets at 30€ are now available. Please reply here with your order, and we will work out distribution later. Season tickets will be available during the local youth tournament, on 23rd, 24th, 25th, and 26th June, at the Los Montesinos “stadium”. Howard Yeats will be at the ground from 11.30am to 12.30pm on 23rd, with season tickets, or you can contact him direct at email@example.com Season tickets will also be available at the pre-season games, details of which are unknown at present.
Also, soon to be available, will be raffle tickets at 3€ each, sold on behalf of the Club, and the winners to be drawn nearer Christmas.
CD MONTESINOS HAVE A NEW MANAGER
Local football club CD Montesinos have a new manager following the departure of last season’s “Mister” Roberto Cases.
The club’s committee have been holding talks with a number of local managers in recent weeks and have now come to an agreement with JOSE IGNACIO CAMACHO PAVON who is known as CAMACHO in football circles.
Camacho comes to the club having been in charge at Orihuela “B” last season. He will be meeting the management and squad members this coming Wednesday and is expected to lay out his plans for the forthcoming season.
Camancho, born in Alamada (Malaga) on the 23rd of January 1971, played most of his football in the Spanish 2B división at clubs like Malaga “B”, UD Melilla, Hercules CF, Extremadura CF and CD Linares. He played a total of 345 matches in his career and scored 22 goals from a defensive position.
In the next few days there will be an interview with the new manager to get his thoughts and ideas, which should be interesting as it is the desire and aim of those running CD Montesinos to finally make the leap up a level at the end of the forthcoming season.
No pressure for the New Boy then!!!!
Reference below message. This event has been cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control. Further details will be posted when known.
