have confirmed that head coach Antonio Villaescusa will
remain as head coach of the senior team for another
season. The former CD Dénia and CD Benidorm coach

primary objective of building a competitive team to
finish as high as possible in the league from players

hopes of claiming a top three spot and a chance at promotion
to the Third Division which CD Javea hasn't graced for
some twenty years. Coach Villaescusa has not had much
luck with injuries this season but he has managed to
build a squad which has two players of similar quality
in each position. However the absence at times of key
players such as defender and club captain Aldo and
influential attacking midfielder Faye has been noticeable
at times as the side has slid from the play-offs with
just two wins in the last nine games.
the club is satisfied that Villaescusa is still
the right man to build a strong squad to consolidate
in the top half of a tough Group III league and maybe
even guide it a step further towards promotion. With
an agreement signed with the club with seven games left
in the season, the head coach can already start planning
for the 2018-19 season.
