Back on the horse indeed! I was sad when you got relegated but I admire your determination to keep on going. You, my friend, deserve the most respect out of all us writers because of the challenges you set yourself and your determination to complete them! :)

Thanks a lot FM Rookie.
That was awesome to be called a writer :)

Thanks for following along Jamesg237.
This is my first attempt as a LLM. It takes some getting used to, never to have any money.
I agree with both James and Nick. I know you are a good writer because you lured me into the Spanish Third Division!
Lured me too :) atm with Oviedo won 2B1 and 31 games played league adelante I´m in 1st place :) only leading with 5 points.

You get promotion in no time! :)

Great that both of you are enjoying the lower Spanish leagues. Cannot wait for the stories to get posted ;)

Not too thrilled about you cruising thru the divisions and make me look bad struggling to even win promotion. :)
But you are much better writer than me ;)

and Oviedo is better team at the start than CD Costancia, so IMHO you are doing better job than me :)
DerAlte : Oviedo is a better team at the start than CD Costancia

That is true.
After I began to write the story I have of cause followed the real life CD Costancia and their struggles in their first season in the Segunda División B.

With just five wins in twenty-six games they will likely go down to the local Tercera División again .

But that will not stop me from picking up a CD Costancia jersey when we go to Mallorca this summer.

Quiet before the storm

We had a very quiet transfer window to start out 2016. We were back to needing cash-inputs on a monthly basis to keep the club afloat and there were no way I was walking in to the office of Chairman Miguel Rubio and asking him for more of his money to buy players.


We were in desperate need for an extra defender. The two players on our roster capable of playing left defender were both hurt. Jesus Toscano who was off to a great start (7.31 rating) to his C.D. Constancia career was injured for 3-4 months and just 19-year old Marcos Garcia also struggled to stay healthy and inconsistency.
We settled on a loan deal with Espanyol for another 19-year old in Carlos Nunez.


In the dying minutes of the transfer window, we managed to make a deal with Barcelona to loan Jean-Marie Dongue for the remaining of the season. The young player was on his way back from a dislocated shoulder that had kept him out for almost three months and was just happy to play football again.


Unfortunately, with the deal done, the paperwork to get him registered for the squad for the reminder of the season was late and he would not be allowed to play for us.


Jean-Marie Dongue was on the next flight back to Barcelona. They did not even notice he was back. They were too busy celebrating the signing of Hulk for £24 mil to play next to Cavani.


On the field, it was more of the same. Even with the team winning on a consistent basis it was still the same six to seven hundred people that showed up each time we played a home game. We lost a few road games and rested players in the Federation Cup but stayed neck by neck with Ontinyent FC in the hunt for the league title.

It was building up to another interesting summer in Inca.

Nice story. Hope you can get for Adelante again ;)
The third division will be like a breeze for you mate. A bad thing in your club is in the financial status you mentioned. Sell unecessary players and you will get cash!
This is just an Incredible story mate, the work you put into this Is incredible. You should get through the 3rd divsion pretty easily with this last minute loan deals. Good Luck :D
Murtagh : Nice story. Hope you can get for Adelante again ;)
Thanks for reading Murtagh.
The team is good enough to move up from division three but most likely not good enough to stay up.

PaukerJ : The third division will be like a breeze for you mate. A bad thing in your club is in the financial status you mentioned. Sell unecessary players and you will get cash!
Having a La Liga team in R.C.D Mallorca just 15 minutes down the road is not helping either.
My “unnecessary” players are so bad that nobody wants them and even if I manage a sale the money is not put back in to the transfer budget.

The Madrista : This is just an Incredible story mate, the work you put into this Is incredible. You should get through the 3rd divsion pretty easily with this last minute loan deals. Good Luck :D
Thanks for reading Madrista and for the kind words.
If we win promotion this season it will not be because of a 19-year old loan player from Espanyol. :)

A star is born

With ten games left to play, we were still in a dead race with Ontinyent FC.
The winner of the division would get a chance to play a home-and-away winner gets promoted game against one of the other three division winners. The rest of the teams in the playoffs would need to go thru the gulling three rounds of home and away playoff games to secure promotion.


We were 8 points clear of the number three team but now found ourselves trailing Ontinyent FC bye one single point.

I was not just the league table that was positive reading in Inca those days. The local newspapers had found a new darling in Eloy Àlvarez.


The young player I was ridiculed for buying for €110K the previous season, was now as much a super star as it was possible to become in Inca. The young player had not only secured his place in the starting lineup on the left side of the Spanish U19 team but he was more importantly now rated at the best player in the Second division B3 with a 7.74 overall rating.


The left footed player terrorized opponents with his speed and dangerous crosses but was also a menace when he made the move toward the middle of the field to look for the shot opportunity instead.

Welcome to the future

In the end of mars 2016 we got the first intake of youth players thru the teams brand new youth academy. Sixteen youngsters, mostly Mallorca locals between fifteen and sixteen were selected. At first glance, none of them looked like future world beaters but there were still a few interesting prospects among them.

The season was moving along in a frantic pace with us and Ontinyent FC still locked in to the fight for the first place in the division.


The key game of the season was played at home in Inca in the middle of April against Ontinyet F.C. Both teams had already secured a place in the upcoming playoffs and we had now moved ahead of Ontinyet F.C. in the standing and the chase for the first place in the division.
Before the game, we had a three-point cushion but we had played to a draw in the first game against Ontinyet F.C. in Valencia so a loss would drop us to second with just three games left to play.

Our biggest concern before the game was a steady stream of injuries to a squad without much depth. We once again had to play without a “pure” striker as Dani Lopez (injured) and Igarki (suspended) was still unavailable.


Ontinyet F.C. scored first after thirty minutes of play when we failed to clear a cross. We answered back just three minutes later when Cristian Reyes scored his just second goal of the season. After the break, we took the lead when Carlos Akapo was first on the rebound after a Francesc Fullana free kick that bounced off the crossbar.
Just ten minutes away from almost guaranteeing the division title, we once again failed to account for everybody on a cross and the game was back to level.


That was the way it ended and we found ourselves with a three-point lead with three games to go and everything up to ourselves.
