It’s a busy weekend for Marbella’s rugby and football teams.
Trocadero Marbella Rugby Club travel to Seville for the away leg of their quarter final ofof the Liga AON de Primera Division Andaluza. They will face the Club Amigos del Rugby, one of the oldest in Andalucia. Trocadero Marbella Rugby Club have yet to lose a match this season, and a good result will put them in the driver’s seat for the return leg in Marbella (TBA).
At the Bahia de Marbella ground (opposite the hospital) the Under -18 side will take on Universidad de Granada. The match kicks off on Saturday at 2.30pm. Entrance is free.
Meanwhile Marbella FC (whose “on the ball” media department have still to reply to my emails. I may have to go down and kick some balls around) rake on Linares Deportivo at Marbella’s Municpal Studium on Sunday at 5pm. Marbella FC, under Russian owner Alexander Grinberg currently lie seventh in the Segunda Division B with Linares Deportivo mid table in 12th. Hopefully new signing goalkeeper Alex Franco (pictured) who was unveiled this week will be able to mark his debut with a clean sheet.
Tickets are €12 general entrance, €8 women and pesioners and children between the age of 13-18 pay €5.
