Spare a thought for poor CD Eldense, who on Saturday afternoon suffered a beating so severe that they immediately pulled themselves out of the Spanish third tier as a result.

Eldense took on Segunda Division league leaders Barcelona B knowing that a defeat would seal their relegation.

Unfortunately, they found themselves 8-0 down at half-time and subsequently on the wrong end of a 12-0 drubbing by the final whistle.

In the direct aftermath of the loss, the club issued a statement to confirm that they will now be “provisionally cease all sporting activity” and terminating their contract with the Italian investment group that has been bankrolling them this season…

“Thanks to all the fans, former players and staff that are sending us messages of support.”

Eldense still have six matches left to play this season, though according to ESPN it’s unclear how they plan to resolve their remaining fixtures.

May Pies take this opportunity to suggest a nice friendly game of Tiddlywinks?

    Damn. My local team (Badalona FC) is in the same division. We’ve got Barcelona B at home this weekend and should be playing Eldense in our penultimate game. We only managed to beat them 4-1 in the first fixture :/
