History

Having spent a long time in the Tercera División, the club made consistent progress, reaching the first division on three occasions: 1999, 2004 and 2008.[1]

The club became first widely known in Spain in 1995–96, while still playing at the third level, for its extraordinary run in the Spanish Cup, eliminating three top flight clubs (Real Sociedad, Racing de Santander and Sporting de Gijón), only being knocked out in the quarter-finals by FC Barcelona, after taking the lead.

Following a 1–3 loss at Sporting Gijón, on 2 November 2008, the club reached a total of 200 goals against in the first division, reaching 43rd in the all-time list. It battled bravely against relegation, but eventually returned to level two after just one year, as second from bottom.
