Joy for Real Mallorca's players after beating Valladolid.
Real Mallorca secured their La Segunda place for next season with a comfortable 3-1 win at the Nuevo Zorilla stadium on Saturday night. This win brings to an end a cataclysmic campaign which all of us “Mallorquinistas” are happy to see the back of. The frightening inconsistency throughout the season saw the island outfit drop mighty close to being relegated. We started this game fourth from the bottom and went behind as early as the 8th minute when Villar broke through a static defence to score. Once again we'd started a game nervously and for every tentative step forward we had two lurching strides back.
