The awards won by Depor

Pablo Insua: Best defender at Liga Adelante. The Galician player was a fixed starter at the centre of the defense and a reference at the team, to the point that Fernando Vázquez had to seat experienced Marchena in order to allow his progression.. He played in 39 of the 42 liga meetings (3,374 minutes) being the player with more interceptions (92) and clearances (199).

German Lux: Best goalkeeper at Liga Adelante. The Argentine keeper only allowed 29 goals in 36 games (3,280 minutes) and his ratio of 0.81 goals per game was the second best in the league, only behind Eibar’s Irureta (0.67). His number of saves (81) wasn’t among the highest on the season, because he skipped five games after suffering a knee injury, and also because the defense protected him pretty well, but the important thing is that he was there to make key saves when Depor needed it. Just to highlight that he stopped the 73.6% of the shots on target with him at the goal.

Manuel Pablo: Fair play award at Liga Adelante. The veteran defender was a starter in 16 of the 21 matches of the first round. He only made 9 appearances in the second round as Seoane and Laure turned to be the starting full-backs (1,939 minutes in the whole season). He was booked twice in the season. This award was granted by the Spanish federation of peñas.

Juan Dominguez: Best centre midfielder at Liga Adelante. The Galician was the player with more minutes at the team (3,490), the one with the better passing ratio (85.90%) and the most fouled man (84). Perhaps he disappeared when Vázquez placed him as the playmaker in the schemes, but had a solid performance as a pivote, even as the lonely man for the position at the moment of using a 4-1-4-1. He was also named the player of the season by the peña members of
