Deportivo B closed its squad during the past Thursday with the incorporation of Arturo Garc?a, a 20-year-old left back that signed on that day for Fabril. This is the last incorporation for the new season and now Tito Ramallo waits for his debut: the visit game against Lemona on Saturday (18h00).

Arturo Garc?a is the last signing of Deportivo B for the season 2008/2009. The ex-Zaragoza B left-back signed for Depor on the past Thursday after spending a couple of week on trial. His contract is for one year with the option to extend it for four additional years. Ramallo tested several players for the spot and in the end Arturo was the one that convinced him. Arturo is 20 and before his arrival, he has spent four years at Levante and one in Zaragoza, he already has played 70 matches at Tercera Divisi??n.

The defender was expressing his satisfaction for his arrival, as he said to Depor Sport ?Today is a big day for me, I am really happy to be here, to be in a great club like Deportivo La Coru?a. I’m really proud of convincing the coaching staff of Fabril after they tested several players for the same position. I hope to be able to respond on the pitch to the confidence they have put on me.?

Now coach Tito Ramallo has a second choice for the left-back position after the signing of H?ctor Granados, Ramallo commented about this incorporation ?We are talking about a player with different conditions, besides he’s only 20, a virtue for a B squad. No matter his age, he already played 70 games at Tercera Divisi??n tough he hasn’t debuted yet in Segunda B. On the pitch, he’s a side defender different from H?ctor Granados, which allows us to find a balance, something we were looking for.?

Despite the coaching staff already said the squad is closed, there’s one player that still on trial with the squad: goalkeeper Alain Baroja. The Venezuelan arrived with the first squad after the South American tour and all appoints he could have a spot at Juvenil A. He even played a friendly match with Fabril on Sunday (1-0 win over Santa Comba).

With the arrival of Arturo, Deportivo B presents the following squad for the new season: Marcos Val?n, Alberto (goalkeepers); Arturo, Castillo, Rochela, H?ctor Granado, Juanan, Seoane, Sergio Benito (defenders); Chema, Dani, Herbert, Iv??n Carril, Iv??n P?rez, Juan Dom?nguez, Momar, Nacho Matador, Guille, Chirri (midfielders); Aridane, Hugo Garc?a and Lassad (strikers). Of this list youngster Chirri will be alternating between Deportivo B and Juvenil A.

The debut for Fabril in the new Segunda B season will occur this Saturday with the visit to Lemona (18h00). SD Lemona is a Basque club that comes from a little town named Lemoa and that’s ready to face its 17th season in Segunda B. The game will take place at Arlonagusia stadium (capacity for 5,000 fans).
