CD Vera 1 UD Lanzarote 1

The Rojillos return from Tenerife with a good point against a side that have now drawn five of their opening six matches having lost the other to league leaders C.D.Marino.

Vera 1 1 Lanzarote 11

It was almost a year to the day that British boy Brad Cockerill suffered a cruciate knee injury and manager Adolfo Pérez finally gave Brad his first start since that fateful day.

After last week’s dismal performance this was the perfect opportunity for the Rojillos manager to make a change. Brad had a good game finally running out of steam in the 65th minute where he was substituted.

The hosts began the match the better of the two sides keeping possession but it was Lanzarote with midfielder Marcos Cabrera who was first to threaten. His goal bound strike from 18 yards was diverted for a corner by a defender.

CD Vera took the lead in the 18th minute in controversial style. Defender Ramsés received the ball just inside his opponent’s 18 yard box and the Lanzarote players were furious as they felt he was well offside.  Ramsés slid the ball past keeper Alejandro to send his side 1-0 up.

The locals had a very good opportunity to double their lead just before the half hour when striker Victor forced the Lanzarote keeper into a good save.

The Rojillos manager had made two brave decisions; one was to start with Brad as he had only come on as a sub for less than five minutes a couple of weeks ago and the other was to give a debut to 16 year old Enzo Torres. The youngster showed potential but all the danger was coming down his flank so Adolfo opted to bring on the experienced Miguel in the 38th minute to replace the debutant.

The visitors gradually eased themselves into the game and as half time approached they looked the more likely team to score next.

Lanzarote upped the tempo early in the second period and new boy Borja Vera came close in the 50th minute only being denied by a good save from the Tenerife keeper.

The Rojillos did not have to wait much longer. In the 51st minute  read more »

Monarch Denies Rumours Of Financial Troubles

Rumours were rife last night that the holiday company and airline Monarch were about to cease trading.

Monarch Landing Lanzarote w640 h480 2

These came about as several aircraft from other carriers, including United Airlines aircraft from the US, were re positioned to Monarch destinations and then given flight schedules which matched Monarch’s services. It was thought these aircraft were intended to provide repatriation flights under the ATOL scheme, as they had been chartered by the Civil Aviation Authority. At one time there appeared to be two aircraft inbound to Lanzarote as part of these charters, one a 787 due in this evening and the other due later in the week.  read more »

UD Lanzarote 1 CD Buzanada 5

The Rojillos record of 43 home matches since a defeat ended in dramatic and devastating style against a side who have just been promoted to the Tercera Divison on Sunday afternoon.

UD Starting Line UP

 

Anyone witnessing this match would have seen Lanzarote were not at their best however the Tenerife side played some fantastic quick and neat football and with striker and man of the match Gerardo putting in a performance that I have not seen for many years by a visiting player, Lanzarote were simply blown apart.

 

Not only did Gerardo score four but he was so close with several more and the panic with the Lanzarote defence was evident as soon as he had the ball.

 

One must congratulate Lanzarote first; many fans have never seen a home defeat as the Rojillos last defeat 44 games ago was against UD Vecindario of Gran Canaria on the 12th April 2014. Two full seasons have passed which included 27 wins and 16 draws. Even the mighty Barcelona had gone 31 home games since a defeat but a shock loss to strugglers Malaga ended that run. 

 

Congratulations to manager Adolfo Pérez and every player over the last two and a half years.

The first goal arrived midway through the first half, a poor defensive header from stand in Captain Ángel Gil gifting the visitors a corner.  The corner kick was headed back across goal from the far post and the Rojillo defence failed to deal with the situation as the ball fell in the six yard box to the foot of midfielder Samu who rifled it home into the top corner and sending his side 0-1 up.  read more »
