JAVEA LEADS FIGHT FOR EXPAT BUDGET

However it is under threat after a budget reduction for 2015 which is to be questioned by municipalities with high numbers of expat residents.

CD JÁVEA 2-0 UD PORTUARIOS · DÉNIA LOSE
Goals from Bertó and Santafe secured all three points in a second successive home win which keeps the rojiblancos in fifth position. And with the surprise home defeat of CD Dénia by CF UE Gandía, the first those from the dark side have lost on their own soil this season, the gap between Jávea and third place has been reduced to three points. The game was played at a frenetic pace in front of a large and noisy crowd, one of the biggest of the season, with UD Portuarios belying their lowly position in the league, hitting the woodwork on several occasions and bundling the ball home to "equalise" but the effort was disallowed due to offside. However Jávea proved to be the more potent in front of goal and secured three precious points.

PEGO CF 1-0 CD JÁVEA · ROJIBLANCOS LOSE OUT TO LATE GOALS IN MARINA ALTA DERBY
A late goal from young debutant striker Carlos secured all three points for Pego CF and condemned CD Jávea to their third defeat in five games. The 'rojiblancos' had much of the early part of the game with Puncho and Armando testing the Pegolino keeper during a sustained period of attack. However, as the game progressed, it became a more balanced game which could go either way and ultimately fell in favour of the hosts thanks to the 89th minute winner. By this time the game had descended into chaos with both Micó and Jabu dismissed for two yellow cards and coach José Bisquert and delegate Miguel Blasco sent to the stands for double cautions each. Little love is lost in this particular Marina Alta derby. CD Jávea drop to fifth spot and are now six points adrift of the top three.

JAVEA REQUESTS PERMISSION TO USE FLOATING PLATFORM FOR FIREWORKS
The Ayuntamiento de Xŕbia has taken steps to obtain the necessary permits to launch the fireworks which bring an end to the fiestas of Loreto in September from floating platforms. The council has been working for some time on a new system after the last year's cancellation of the iconic display based on the special decree imposed due to the ongoing drought and associated high level of fire risk. Authorisation had been refused for the traditional location from which the fireworks had been launched for over 40 years as it fell within 500 metres of a classified forestal zone.

PROPOSAL TO ESTABLISH PAID PARKING IN PORT OPPOSED BY JAVEA
The Ayuntamiento de Xŕbia has received a letter from the Department of Infrastructure outlining a proposal from a company based in Madrid to establish a paid-parking zone within the confines of the Port de Xŕbia harbour area. The zone affected is some 1,235 square metres of land currently used as a service area and for free parking on which the company is seeking a three-year lease to charge for parking in some 50-55 available spaces during the peak holiday season (June 12th - September 13th 2015) as well as for an additional ten days during the Easter period. Unsurprisingly, the Ayuntamiento de Xŕbia has flatly rejected a proposal which would reduce the number of public parking bays in the heart of the port area.

CD JÁVEA 2-1 CD CONTESTANO - BACK TO WINNING WAYS FOR THE ROJIBLANCOS
CD JÁVEA secured their first win of 2015 after goals from Álex Bertó and Santafé cancelled out an early opener from CD Contestano's Octavio. It was a far better performance than the disastrous thrashing by Recambios Colon a couple of weeks ago but although the 'rojiblancos' move up to fourth spot, fierce rivals CD Dénia who are sitting in third spot have now opened up a five point gap. Next week CD Jávea travel to Pego CF for the penultimate Marina Alta derby of the season.

CD JAVEA are still struggling to find their pre-Christmas form that saw them claim 22 points from a possible 24 available to enter the break in third spot. The New Year has seen an incredible change in fortune with just two points from 12 and just two goals in four games with nine against, although six of those were conceded in the dreadful home game of two weeks ago. Travelling to SD Sueca, the rojiblancos took the lead through captain Javi before the hosts equalised from the spot with ten minutes remaining.
