    I am making light of this (mostly because of the one eyed mascota) but it is an honor and probably not every day you see a 6' 2" Swedish American at a fiesta de barrio in the Basque country.

    Last week, he made his starting debut for Barakaldo, going the full match in a 3-2 win over UD Sanse. He was back to the bench yesterday, with Txusta back in the lineup.

    Ben has returned to Mallorca - end of loan - from Barakaldo. He is 'on the books' for Mallorca B team who play in the Segunda Division B - Group 3

    He's now captaining Mallorca B:



    Unfortunately, Mallorca B have been relegated to the Tercera Division because the first team got relegated down to the Segunda B.

    On the bright side, that means that unless he gets promoted to the first team, Machini doesn't have to leave the Balearic Islands.

    Benji started, went 90, and claimed another clean sheet as Mallorca B traveled to Collerense and won 0 - 1 in Spain's Tercera

    Benji started, went 90, as #1 Mallorca B hosted #2 Poblense and won 4 - 3 in Spain's Tercera - and have WON GROUP 11 and will enter the Tercera Division Promotion Play-Offs

    Great to have a young American Goal Keeper in this position in Spain

    Does Mallorca B get to participate in the promotion playoffs since the first team is only one division above and is not guaranteed promotion? (Mallorca's first team won their Segunda B group, but even group champions need to win promotion in the playoffs.)

    Benji Machini and Mallorca B are in the Play-Offs, for sure, they play Torrelavega - I have no idea what happens if they win promotion (maybe it will be in name only?)
    We also have Levante B with Shaq Moore already in the play-offs (they will play CD Calahorra)
    and our final hope will be Hayden Lyn Canizalez and Plasencia (who will play Burlades) who are in a play-off (Qtr Finals) trying to reach the final play-offs)

    Unfortunately, Benji remained on the bench today as Mallorca B drew 2 - 2 with Gimnástica Torrelavega in their 2nd leg of the Tercera Division Play-off.- with an aggregate of 6 - 3 in Torrelayega's advantage, Mallorca B will not be promoted this year - better luck next year

    **I think that I will avoid writing anything about lower league Spain / Portugal et al. when in comes to their promotion/relegation systems.I evidently can't get a grip on the processes**
    Today Benji started, went 90, as Mallorca B traveled to Sanluqueño in the first leg of Tercera League promotional play-offs. Unfortunately they lost 1 - 0 - but they will face off again at Mallorca on June 9th
