Cartagena Football Club who go by the name Efesé (FS) for some reason unknown to me or la Albinegra for their Black and White, Newcastle like shirts beat Numancia yesterday. Just six more games to go this season.
Cartagena are third in Division 2A on sixty one points, five points clear of their nearest rival and only three points behind the league leaders. If they manage to hang on they will get promoted to the First Division and join teams such as Barcelona and Real Madrid.
The local media have mounted campaigns of support, the club shop has sold out of football shirts, black and white flags and scarves are hanging from balconies and car aerials. Yesterday, in the shopping streets, dapper gentlemen and well dressed ladies wore subtle combinations of black and white.
We could hear the roar of the crowd in our flat. Numancia were in the lead for a long time, then a late equaliser with the winning goal just four minutes from time. The street filled with shouting, drinking, flag waving fans then came the wave of cars from the ground. happy and hooting traffic jams all over the city.
