AF Algarve 2ª Divisão 2011/12


Last Saturday’s friendly against Serrano was in fact a good work out for Aljezurense and again, more new players were on show.

The match started with left back African in goal as the goal keeper arrived late. Aljezure played some good football and their fast flowing moves gave them the edge.  It was not long before they were in front.

Good interchanging between the mid field found Joao Luis free 25m out and he lashed a fierce shot past the keeper, a fine goal.

In the heat Aljezurense played well and should have gone further ahead but were thwarted by some good goalkeeping and luck.  Half time 1-0 Aljezurense.

The second half saw many changes as the new coach tried the new blood, this does not always help the football but a must for pre seasons.  Serrano had a habit of being able to stop play with some cynical fouls until the referee booked 2 of their players which did seem to stop it.

Serrano scored the equaliser mid second half when a ball was not cleared well and the unmarked forward scored past the advancing Toco in goal.

Aljezurense were in fact the better side but missed opportunities meant the score remained level at the final whistle.

Aljezurense continued their pre season warm up games with a home game against SANLUIZENSE – S.LUIS ( ODEMIRA).

The home team played some excellent football at times and the new players appear to be settling in well. The visitors who had the biggest goalkeeper seen yet at the Municipal Campo made some excellent saves and for a time keptthescores level until a fine ball from mid field found the head of an Aljezure attacker and a fine header into the top corner beating the out stretched keepers hand.

Changes at half time gave the home team more fluid movement and soon Aljezurense were 3 nil up, both goals well taken and gives hope for the coming season.

We apologise for lack of names of players but there are so many changes we are yet to see the full squad  list of names and numbers.

Simao sadly, was missing from the team on Saturday, but he was at the game sporting a bruised knee.

Further news of any fixtures will be advertised on this web page as and when we are informed.


Juventude Clube Aljezurense – Established 1969

Aljezurense are the local Football Club that Amovate have sponsored for their player of the year trophy for the last 3 seasons.

A growing group of ex pats have followed the team home and away over this time and have not only visited parts of the Algarve that they would not have normally discovered but also thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Unfortunately Aljezurense were relegated last season and this year start their season on 15th October 2011 in the Cup at home to Taveira K.O. to be advised.

The league start will follow on the 22nd October 2011 with the first match away against CDR Quarteirense

Why not join the supporters and have a good afternoon out.  At home games,  the entrance fee is paid by entering a raffle and we pay generally a Euro or two for the privilege.  Last season, at away games, a fee of €2.50 was charged.

Most games as you would guess are played in fantastic weather and you can top up the tan whilst cheering on the team.
