It cannot be said that it was a bad season for both Juvenil A and Juvenil B, but the true is that the teams didn’t improve the results of the previous campaign. Lads like Pedro Alves and Mujaid were on the spotlight.

The season 2016/17 left similar impressions at the moment of comparing the first team and the academy squads: they could have done better. In the case of both Juvenile teams, both were unable to surpass RC Celta, and in the case of Juvenil A, the team ended third as Sporting Gijón were the second place.

And that taking in mind that Juvenil A only lost three times at División de Honor. It lost both derbies with Celta (2-3 & 0-3) and also in the visit to Basander (2-1). What condemned the squad was the number of draws: 7. The team hasn’t been able to win this league since the campaign 2009/10.

Despite ending third, the team managed to qualify to Copa Del Rey, this for been among the best third places. In this competition the lads eliminated CA Osasuna and later fell in quarterfinal before Sevilla CF (aggregate score 1-3).

The team coached by Rubén Coméndez was characterized by been a young group with many lads living their first year at the squad after passing through Juvenil B. The golden generation that won the national title with Cadete A t’s already at this team.

Playmakers Aarón Sanchez and Iago Novo are among the most talented players at the team, Sergio Ortuño and Pablo Porrúa are also worth mentioning. The most impressing line is the attack, with the likes of Pedro Alves (17 goals this season), Alejandro Boedo (11), Manu Mosquera (10) and Adrián Castro (9).

Pedro Alves was picked by the U-17 team of Portugal. He joined the team on this season after passing through the academy of SL Benfica. Another player that had a special evolution is centre-back Mujaid Sadick. He is now a fixed player for U-17 Spain and was picked by Fabril during the season that just ended. Right-back Iago Carracedo had the chance to debut with Depor B.

In the case of Juvenil B, the team ended second at Liga Nacional Juvenil, the lads ended five points under RC Celta after losing five times on the season (0-1 at Victoria, 3-1 at Racing Vilalbés, 3-1 at Calasanz, 0-2 at Celta and 2-3 Vs. Pontevedra).

The team is coached by Pablo López and saw how Nigerian goalie Francis Odinaka was picked by the first team for some training sessions. Other players with a good season were playmakers Javi Armas and Kilian Molina, while the top-scorers were David Rojo (24) and José Rivera (16), promising lads that continued advanced in their career.
