I went to see Issey Nakajima-Farran play for Tàrrega this afternoon, about 100km outside of Barcelona. Little town, they are in 5th tier. Maybe 300 spectators, 27 degrees and dry.

It is below his level of quality, but he's on a poor team that have only won 3 of 17. He plays up high, but probably would be more useful behind another striker as there is no quality in the middle to get the ball to him. He's one of the 3-4 better players. They lost 1-3, and Issey scored when it was 0-2 after a good play on the wing where he got to the low cross before the keeper. Then they pushed, he had a few shots wide and a few on net and the team played well for a good spell until the rival got their third.

I'd say this is at least a level low for him, it is below CPL for sure. Next year they are restructuring the Spanish lower divisions and this team will be 6th tier. Third and fourth tier will be better quality, with fewer teams, so making a side in at least 4th tier, say, will be tougher. And if you can't you are playing amateur, not pro.

Nice to see the local kids from the club, the 8-12 year olds, surround him after the match and goof with him, he seems to have a good rapport. Also with teammates. I think I saw his father but with masks it is hard to be friendly
