O’ROURKE MOVES ON
Former CD Montesinos star midfielder Dani O’Rourke has settled in at new club Algorfa after departing the Los Montesinos Segunda Regional club this season.
“I played in the 2-0 win against Atletico de Catral – gave an assist and scored the second goal. I am very happy here,” Dani told me.
“The level of teams in the 1st Regioinal is significantly more than in the Segunda Regional Grupo when I was at CD Montesinos,” said Dani.
“This season the hope is to stay as high as possible in the table. We are a young team – with great quality and are eager. There is tremendous support for the team,” said Dani.
OMAR RULED OUT
Club Sporting Saladar player Omar has been ruled out of action after breaking his collarbone in the 4-1 defeat against Pilar de la Horadada – that lead to emergency surgery in hospital.
“The boys couldn’t get a result against Pilar de la Horadada – but for us the worst of the game was the injury to Omar – who has suffered a broken collarbone,” said a spokesman from the club.
“Omar underwent emergency surgery – and is now on the road to recovery. Everyone at the club wish him a speedy recovery, and we look forward to him returning soon,” they added.
VAZ SIDELINED UNTIL LATE OCTOBER

Alicante, Los Montesinos based CD Montesinos, who suffered a 3-0 defeat against CD Benijofar in their opening game of the season, host CD Murada on Sunday, October 2, at The Municipal Stadium.
New CD Montesinos coach Camacho has suffered setbacks with the long-term injury to Brazilian striker Vazquinho, who will be sidelined until the end of October, having returned to the club following a season at Sporting Saladar.
Striker Wallace has departed the club, due to work commitments, added to the departure of midfielder Dani O’Rourke, coming on the back of the planned arrival of five new players, that was thwarted, due to not being released from their relevant contracts.
