You might wonder where the closed season has gone, especially here in Spain where the play-offs tend to last much longer than elsewhere.

For most players it will be back to work next week, certainly the case for Elche who report back for training on Thursday 11th and with the announcement of two more pre season friendless they only have a week or so before they are back in action at Torrellano.

The pre season calendar for Elche is taking shape as follows:

July 11: Return to work

July 19: Athletic Torrellano – Elche

July 20: UD Ilicitana – Elche

July 26: Orihuela – Elche

July 27: UCAM Murcia – Elche

August 3: Elche – Albacete

August 10: Cartagena – Elche
