Ahead of the official presentation, Aspe have announced that they will hold a pre-round for entry to the 2012 Cuatro y Medio Championship. Idoate will face Merino II in Santo Domingo de la Calzada on 5th October. The winner will proceed to play Aritz Lasa in Eibar on 7th October. The rest of the first tier line up will be announced at the presentation next week.
In the Promocion championship, Aspe will field Merino, Olazabal, Ongay, Ezkurdia, Apezetxea, Jaunarena, Zabaleta and Gorka.
Jose Javier Zabaleta has extended his contract with Aspe until 2015. The 21 year old defender from Etxarren, who made his professional debut on 6th January 2011, previously had a contract up until the end of 2013 but will now remain with the empresa for at least another two years beyond that. Zabaleta expressed his excitement at the lengthy extension, saying he did not expect it. He also stated some clear goals: to play a good Cuatro y Medio Promocion championship and then to push for a place in the main Pairs Championship.
