ANDREW ATKINSON writes ……CD Montesinos kicked off their 2016-17 campaign at the weekend under new coach Camacho – the third coach in as many seasons at the Los Montesinos, Alicante based club – with a trip to CD Benijofar in the Segunda Regional Grupo.
Camacho will be hoping to improve on the Veja Baja outfit’s fifth spot finish last term, having replaced Roberto Cases, who headed for the exit door at The Municipal in a move to UD Horadada at the end of last season. Cases had replaced long serving coach Juanpe, who was not given a new contract, after seven years at The Municipal.
Alamada, Malaga born, ex-Orihuela B coach Camacho, 45, has brought in new faces, after being given the nod to take the reins by Presidente Felipe Parades to fill the vacant manager’s post.
With Vazquinho returning to CD Montesinos, after a season at Sporting Saladar, the key to Monte’s success this season could be with the Brazilian frontman – and fellow striker Wallace.
Wallace, who celebrates his 23rd birthday on October 14, played a more prolific role last term and with a full season and experience under his belt he could be a force to be reckoned with, now that Vazquinho is back in the fold.
CD Montesinos 2015-16 Player of the Year Dani O’Rourke has joined 1st Regional club Almoradi: “I have left CD Montesinos in a move to Almoradi. I thank the club very much for the encouragement given over the years – I’ve had great companions,” Dani told me.
