A SHORT HISTORY OF OUR CLUB

1920


The beginnings of the sport of football in the town of Llagostera date back to the early 20th century. According to history, between 1915 and 1920, Abelardo Fàbregas founded the Unión Sport Club Llagostera, the first club to exist in the town.

1940


The beginnings of the sport of football in the town of Llagostera date back to the early 20th century. According to history, between 1915 and 1920, Abelardo Fàbregas founded the Unión Sport Club Llagostera, the first club to exist in the town.

1960


The military team was in the lowest category of football, amateur level, until the 1960s. In the 1960/1961 season, the team was promoted to the First Territorial Division. Between the last division of football and the aforementioned Primera Territorial was the environment in which the club moved.

1990


The club managed to make a name for itself at provincial level but never really made a name for itself. In 1992 the team was relegated to the Second Territorial Division and remained at this level until the 2004/2005 season.

2005


Under the guidance of the current coach, Oriol Alsina, and the president at the time, José Valentín, the club began to move up the ranks: 04/05 from Segunda to Primera Territorial, 05/06 from Primera Territorial to Preferente – at that time the highest category in the club’s history -, 07/08 from Preferente to Primera Catalana.

2008


In the 2008/2009 season, Isabel Tarragó, the current head of the club, took over the presidency. That same year, renovations were carried out at the Municipal de Llagostera (almost as old as the club itself, only a year younger) and the current artificial turf was laid. The team made the leap that season into state football, reaching the Third Division.

2010


After two years in Third Division (09/10 and 10/11) the team became league champions. They also won the promotion to Segunda B in their championship phase. Their opponents, Galician side Cerceda, were defeated 2-0 in Llagostera and 0-1 at their home ground, where Oriol Alsina’s team celebrated promotion to the bronze division of Spanish football.

2011


The third division league title also served to earn the right to participate for the first time in history in the Copa del Rey, where the team debuted on 31 August 2011 at home, eliminating Olímpico de Xàtiva 4-2 and advancing to the second round. The team made it through three play-offs before losing at home to L’Hospitalet. In this league season the team finished in 5th place.

2012


In the 2012/2013 season the team finished 10th in Segunda B, but made history in two cup competitions. In the Copa del Rey, they reached the last 32, where they faced Primera División side Valencia CF (0-2 in Llagostera and 3-1 in Mestalla). In the Copa Catalunya, the team reached the semi-finals, where they lost to Espanyol (3-0) in a match played in Tarragona.

2014


The club’s last great success came in the 2013/2014 season, when they achieved promotion to the Liga Adelante (Second Division A). The following season the team was able to stay in this category, achieving a creditable ninth place in the standings, just four points behind the play-off places for promotion to the First Division.
