The Second B it’s history. An inconsequential Mutilvera-Alabès B (1-0), with nothing at stake, and who had been postponed to his day by the coronavirus, put an end on Wednesday to what has been the bronze category of Spanish football since 1977 It bids farewell to the ascent of Llagostera to the new Primera RFEF, and the descent of Olot to Tercera, leaving a total of 50 seasons combined between the six clubs in the province that have played there, and more than 1,800 games played. In fact, for a good bunch of years, the Second B was the natural habitat of the main teams in the province.
Girona was the first to make their debut, the season of its premiere, 1977/78, when it was only made up of two groups, which ended up giving way to four and, exceptionally, to five this year. Montilivi has seen thirteen seasons in the category. He Figueres, who debuted the course 1983/84, is the most years spent there, with a total of 17. The Palamós, which premiered the campaign 1988/89 with a new rise, and the Llagostera (2014), who arrived at the 2011/12, together with Girona (2008) and Figueres (1986) are the four clubs in the province that took advantage of the Second B at one time or another to make the jump to the Second A, a la LFP.
Two other Girona clubs have played in Segunda B. Olot has been there for seven seasons, like Llagostera, although now it will have to start again from the Third RFEF. Peralada played there for two years, 2017/18 and 2018/19, as a result of its affiliation agreement with Girona.
The current situation of the six Girona teams with a past in Second B is diverse. Girona has not moved from professional football since returning to 2008. Next month it will play its fifth play-off for promotion to the Primera Division. Llagostera will be the second highest ranked club next year. He will play in the First RFEF after going up there on Sunday, in his Second B farewell, thanks to the draw against Hercules. Peralada and Figueres struggle to stay in Tercera, where Olot returns. And Palamós tries to survive in Primera Catalana.
