Tribute, farewell and a very intense match.
As it is already a tradition, every year we organize a friendly match in memory of our colleague Jesus Carrera, “Jess”.
Last Saturday, 10/09/2022, the team played against COEB Ponfesala, with its captain Fernando Blanco “Dilín”, who had been part of our team for many years with the Carrera brothers.
After giving a bouquet of flowers to the Parents of our “Jess”, “Dilín” gave them another bouquet of flowers and to his brother Bruno a jersey of the Ponferrada team with the number 3 (that of “Jess”).
The emotions and feelings were clearly present in the air. Bruno and Juanma were also saying goodbye to futsal. Bruno had been part of the team for 19 years and Juanma for 10 years.
After the ceremony with its speech, heartfelt thanks and the presentation of a plaque to Bruno and Juanma as a farewell, both teams started the match with a great desire to play and beat their opponents.
In the end, regardless of the result (they beat us 4-7), everyone present at the match will agree that it was a very emotional afternoon in every way.
