Valencia 1st Regional Group 9 club Racing San Miguel coach Dani Pérez Williscroft is pleased with the way the pre-season friendlies have gone, ahead of the new 2021-22 season.

“The team drew 1-1 against Sporting San Fulgencio in a game dominated, from start to finish,” said Dani.

Racing pressed Sporting’s goal with captain Gabri Ruiz Vicente giving them a 1-0 lead, when firing home from the edge of the penalty area.

“We played well in the absence of leading players out through injury – players who have stood out in pre-season, including Chispas.

“We will continue to work hard ahead of the new campaign that gets underway this month,” said Dani.
