Racing Valverdeño has been proclaimed champion of the second group of the Primera División Extremadura after winning in Puebla de la Calzada by 1-2 and taking advantage of Gévora’s setback in Cheles, who wasted a 0-2 win to end up giving up a draw. Great joy for the racinguista family in this season that is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the club, which has not had a better gift than this important victory.

During the game there were moments of all kinds and during the 90 minutes the connections with Cheles were constant since this championship depended on what Gévora did. Alfredo Soriano’s men defeated a Puebla side with goals from Manu and Borja Romero, who lost their place in the playoffs but will play in the Copa del Rey next season. After the final whistle in Puebla there were harrowing moments waiting for the end in Cheles. When it was confirmed, the people of Valverde burst with joy and began to celebrate this important achievement. First championship for the people of Valverde in what is now known as the Primera División Extremeña. In 2012 they won the league when it was called the Preferred Regional and they also have another championship in the First Regional. Racing’s rival in the playoff will be La Garrovilla, champion in their group.
