This must go down as the most exciting home game this season. For any neutral this game had the lot, goals, passion, intensity and quality football from both sides.
The Rojillos will feel hard done by as the Referee failed to award them an obvious penalty, sent off Lanzarote defender Raúl on the hour amidst a catalogue decisions that went against the home club all awarded by the official who is also from Las Palmas.
It’s wrong to blame referees and on reports I have done in the past I have rarely criticised the officials but on this occasion they were poor. Surely the football federation should not allow a referee to be from the same place of either of the teams.
Lanzarote knew that they had to be at their very best to take anything from the runaway league leaders but at their very best Lanzarote were which made it a wonderful game of football to watch.
From the opening whistle the Rojillos didn’t allow their opponents anytime to dwell on the ball and in particular Ayoze Pérez chased every ball forcing Las Palmas to commit errors.
In the third minute British boy Louis Kennedy won the ball in midfield and fed Ayoze on the right wing, his excellent cross was fired in low across the six yard box but unfortunately midfielder Javi Betancort put the ball wide when maybe he should have done better.
Lanzarote dominated the early stages but in the 12th minute a quick fire break from the visitors almost gave them the lead. The ball was swept wide on the left and left back Yeremi who was only last week in the first team squad that earned a 3-3 draw with Real Madrid in the Primera Liga fired in a brilliant cross which was met with a diving header from striker Siverio which cleared the crossbar by just a matter of inches.
Both sides were creating chances, a great long pass from the Lanzarote keeper saw Borja go through but just as he fired goal bound a Las Palmas defender deflected his effort away for a corner. read more »
Island Watersports have always been based right in the harbour in Puerto del Carmen, but the popular diving centre has recently moved to the “other side" of the harbour into new premises.
Georg and Iain have completely kitted out their new units - you access them by driving past the old dive centre and continue to the roundabout next to the harbour petrol station. Turn right there and walk all the way down to the far end of the harbour wall, and you’ll find them. read more »

This always looked as though it would be a difficult match against fellow playoff hopefuls. The Tenerife side sitting in fifth spot whilst the Rojillos trailed one place below with just goal difference separating them.
It wasn’t a good start to the day for Lanzarote with their airplane suffering from mechanical failure the flight was delayed for two hours and the kick off was changed from noon to 1.40pm.Lanzarote captain Rosmen alongside fellow islander Kevin now captain of C.D Marino.Lanzarote captain Rosmen alongside fellow islander Kevin now captain of C.D Marino.
The home side were dominant in the opening stages with striker Adán coming close in the 10th minute and it was just five minutes later the same player finished off a good move to put his side 1-0 in front.
Lanzarote did begin to play better but most of their attacking play came from dead ball situations which rarely threatened the Tenerife keeper Cicoviç. read more »
We wrote about the opening of Museo Atlantico recently here: Official opening of Museo Atlantico.
And we’ve now been able to get some fabulous images taken up close with the statues, from our friends at Manta Diving.
As you can see, some of the statues that were put down originally, already have a good growth on them, and the museum is starting to fulfil its role as an artificially reef.
