Hercules will hit bottom at the sports level next season
It will compete in the RFEF Second Division, the fourth category of Spanish football
ANDl Hercules, a club with twenty seasons in the First Division, has failed to qualify for the Second B Pro by drawing (3-3) in Llagostera, so next season it will compete in the Second Division RFEF, the fourth category of Spanish football, which implies his worst sports situation since his founding stage.
The Alicante club had never been to three categories of distance of the elite, not even in the stages in the sixties and seventies of the last century in which he was a militant in Third, since at that time there was no Second B.
After starting the competitions in Third, at the end of the twenties, the Alicante team came to compete in the 1930-31 season in Primera Regional, at a time when national football had not yet been structured.
The Hercules, who will be 100 years old in October 2022, It was already on the verge of relegation to the Third Division last season, but then the pandemic suspended the competition in the absence of a few days and prevented the Alicante team from going down due to its sporting demerits.
The current sporting situation is only comparable to that experienced at the end of the sixties, when it fell to Third (1967-68 season), where he stayed for three years.
The Hercules has only been once in this century in the top category of Spanish football. It was in the 2010-11 season.
