CD JAVEA 0-6 RECAMBIOS COLON CF ˇ ROJIBLANCOS' INEXPLICABLE COLLAPSE
It was nothing short of a debacle as CD Jávea conceded six goals at home to promotion rivals Recambios Colon in one of the worst performances for some time. Whilst the visitors comfortably chalked up their biggest win of the season, the 'rojiblancos' looked a horribly disunited team, despite the photocall before kick-off during which they demonstrated their support of injured player Villa. Reduced to ten man after just 14 minutes when Mico was shown a straight red for a fairly inocuous challenge in the area, the defensive line spent much of their energy arguing with each other and their keeper rather than concentrating of an attack that simply walked through them at will. There was plenty of finger-pointing and little imagination in front of them as Jávea stumbled around the pitch with no direction. The visitors must have rubbed their hands in anticipation and went on the thump six goals past the haplass team.

FIESTA SAN SEBASTIÁN ˇ PATRON OF JÁVEA
For many years the fiesta of San Sebastián has passed by barely noticeable by much of the population of Jávea and it is only the re-introduction of the controversial running of the bulls around the very heart of the historic centre in 2012 that has hauled it back into the conciousness of many people. Yet the fiesta should be one of the most important in the town's calendar for it is San Sebastián who is the patron saint of Jávea, the protector of its people, rather than the likes of San Juan in June, San Jaime in July or even the image of Jesús Nazareno in the spring. It has been through the efforts of a handful of determined adherents that the celebrations on January 20th have been kept alive through a special mass and a couple of modest parades to honour the two niches in which the arrow-pieced image of the saint gazes over the town.

WINTERSUN is the first web series that has been filmed entirely in the Marina Alta including several scenes shot in Jávea.

He added that "we are very pleased with the result and hope that the reaction is good. We had an excellent production team which spent 11 days recording in the region to get the best series possible".

UD ALGINET 2-1 CD JÁVEA ˇ FIRST DEFEAT SINCE OCTOBER FOR ROJIBLANCOS
CD Jávea slipped out of the top three after suffering a narrow defeat at the hands of league leaders U.D. Alginet, the 'rojiblancos' first defeat since October. Billed by the media as the clash of the week between two serious promotion contenders,there was great interest in the fixture which provided an "entertaining spectacle" according to Golsmedia. The hosts opened the scoring with a dubious penalty award on 5 minutes after Aldo had brought down his man; it seemed to most that the foul was outside the area but the referee pointed to the spot and Adrián Roldán smashed home for 1-0. Bertó equalised for Jávea on 17 minutes with a wonder goal that left the keeper floundering. In the second-half, the league's leading scorer Alberto Pomer headed home the winner on 78 minutes. With CD Dénia winning away at Recambios Colon CF, the rojiblancos drop down to fourth and out of the play-off promotion zone.

JAVEA FORMALLY REJECTS SANT ANTONI HOTEL PROJECT
The Ayuntamiento de Xŕbia has been preparing a special technical report to support their objections against a private project to convert the lighthouse complex on the San Antonio headland into a hotel. The report argues that the development contravenes five planning regulations including Valencia's LOTUP regulation which looks at the environmental, land, landscape, economic and social aspects of a development, the PGOU General Plan of Xŕbia, the PORN Management Plan for the Montgó Natural Resources and the PRUG Management Plan of the Montgó Natural Park as well as the Merchant Marine Act itself.

THE THREE KINGS ARRIVE IN JAVEA
Having survived the excesses of Christmas and the New Year, many people will be looking forward to taking a rest from the celebrations. However there was still one more obstacle to overcome before the festive period finally comes to an end: the feast of Epiphany and, perhaps more importantly for the kids, the arrival of Melchior, Gaspar and Balthazar - the Three Kings from the Orient. Their majesties arrived by boat on a delightful sunny early evening and were greeted by hundreds lining the streets of the port. As night fell, they processed up to the town to meet the children in Placeta del Convent, their arrival heralded by a short but colourful firework and confetti display.
