The singular case of Union Deportiva Somozas
Somozas, Inside municipality in the province of A Coruña. pretty rugged terrain, its population barely reaches 1200 population. small, unknown town for most of the Spanish, He lives on their lands humble people, worker who begins to put aside agriculture and livestock to pursue new technologies in some cases, to go to the neighbor As Pontes de García Rodríguez -where is Endesa-, in others.
Few things break the routine of a place where everyone knows everyone. Where there are hardly secrets. There, something happens in that context that serves to break the monotony. Is the death of Manuel Ramos Candocia, mayor from 1979 and president of the municipality team. A 19 from January, the steps of the small municipal field Pardiñas attend the loss of leader, ipso facto slumped behind one of the goals (where he used to sit), a heart attack victim, that even the rapid intervention of several people and the ambulance came to the rescue managed to save his life.
hard stick, tremendous, not only for the team, but for the people. those tears, but nevertheless, today transformed into joy. Turns of fate that set midwinter broken by the death of a loved one is mutating into a steamroller, a group of men who returns to lead the press Somozas. Now they are no longer sorrow nor crying, It is a team that has won on the pitch the right to play in Second Division B.
Big words. They cease to be a team of people to enter the bronze category of Spanish football. The next course will no longer be against nation. There will be visited other provinces, other regions. most powerful templates await them, TV in some matches also. But nevertheless, there is something that remains. The illusion of the first day.
