Another home game, another 3 points for the newest team in the Alicante Veterans League.

Orihuela Costa Veteranos were quick out of the blocks today blasting their way to an early 4-0 lead against ASPE UD at the CDM in Playa Flamenca.

But it wasn’t all plain sailing as their opponents hit back with two goals before halftime to leave the score 4-2 at the break.

Once again the home side showed more attacking threat in the second half with a flurry of goals to run out 7-3 winners and make it two wins from the opening two league games against a spirited ASPE side who won 4-1 in their opening fixture.

The home support was, as ever impressive and they were treated to a fine display from the home side.

Captain Paul Gardner said  “ today was another great committed performance… I think every time we went forward we looked a threat. Another 3 points gained against a strong side in the league. Well done all.”
