The bell of Racing de Ferrol against Deportivo, Castilla y Alcorcón

Racing de Ferrol is already a Second team. The departmental team returns to professional football after taking advantage of its advantage with Alcorcón in a last day of the league to which it arrived with an advantage. In this way, the historic club from Ferrol returns to a category that it has not been in since the 2007-2008 season. A long road of 15 years full of troubles and penances that even led him to be a soldier in Third for four seasons. A dark stage that began to see the light in 2017 when Ignacio Rivera, president of ‘Estrella Galicia’, took charge of the club in the company of a group of businessmen.

The landing of the ‘Administration and Management Elite’, with the presidency of Pepe Criado, brought calm, common sense and the signing of Carlos Mouriz, a sports director, or almost general, of the entity, with a recognized track record. With stability as the flag, he was right with the hiring of a Cristóbal Parralo for the bench who has completed his third season in charge of the green team this year, demonstrating his entity as a coach and the importance of betting on and maintaining a project.

Step by Step

Parralo’s first year qualified for the First RFEF. The second, continued to grow and entered the playoff, where Racing fell in the semifinals against Nàstic. The third has reached the promotion to Second with a squad that has combined continuity, success in the market and presence of the quarry. The Gazzaniga, Jon García or a Héber for which the club made a great effort to retain him, they are part of that ‘old guard’. Among the newcomers, Carlos Vicente stands out, undoubtedly a candidate for the MVP of Group I, or a fundamental Manu Justo with his goals. A cocktail to which youngsters like Brais or a Luis Chacón were added who has been decisive in the final stretch of the league. Although Jardi, with his two goals against Celta B, has become the hero of the promotion.

Regularity was the predominant note of the season, but combined with patience when the team accumulated a streak of two wins, two draws and seven losses (one was in the Cup) between matchdays 9 and 18. Despite this, the departmental team have only been out of the playoffs for two days all season and have shown in the final stretch of the league to be fair champions over the doubtful Alcorcón, Castilla and Deportivo. Nine victories and a single defeat in the twelve games prior to the great ‘final’ against Celta B is sufficient argument to understand the success of a Racing de Ferrol that is preparing to play in the Second Division with a clear ambition crouching in the shadows: to continue growing step by step.

Green wave and improvements in A Malata

Almost at the same rate that Racing was confirming its candidacy for direct promotion, passion for the team was awakening. If the club started 2022 with just under 3,000 members, in January of this year there were already more than 3,500. A wave that grew in Ferrol, a city of 67,000 inhabitants, until turning A Malata (12,000 spectators) green. The municipal stadium, inaugurated in 1993, completed the renovation of its stands on time thanks to the support of the Provincial Council for this Saturday’s grand final against Celta B. The improvements will allow Racing to return to Segunda with an installation of guarantees and with the goal of surpassing the record of 5,500 subscribers that was achieved in the 2000-2001 season in Segunda with the remembered Isidro Silveira in the presidency.
