UD Lanzarote 0 UD Cruz Santa 0

Lanzarote have now qualified for the playoffs for Segunda B (League 1) for the second year running but failing to win against the league´s second from bottom club will not be how they would have liked to celebrate.

The Rojillos were desperate for all three points as league leaders Santa Brígida and second placed side Las Palmas B had already played the evening before. The in form Santa Brígida cruised to a 3-0 home win against 14th placed side Unión Viera whilst Las Palmas B dropped two points in a goalless draw against 15th placed CF Arucas.

All this means that Lanzarote´s chances of finishing top and qualifying for the Copa Del Rey (F.A. Cup) next season have been dealt an almighty blow. UD Villa Santa Brígida are now four points clear of the Rojillos with just 3 games remaining.

Las Palmas B remain one point ahead of Lanzarote and finishing second does give you a so called advantage of playing one of the weaker teams in the playoffs with the away Leg first.

The game itself was pretty much how this report is written, disappointing! Some described this game as the worst performance of the season but in true honesty those people are just disappointed. The Rojillos completely dominated the match with two good penalty shouts turned down and a super Miguel Gómez strike flying off the woodwork. It was one of those games that just was not going our way.  read more »

CD Santa Ursula 3 UD Lanzarote 2

It has been an awful weekend for the Rojillos, they began as league leaders and by Sunday 2pm they were in third spot.

Second placed Santa Brígida and third placed Las Palmas B both leapfrog Lanzarote who now trail top spot by two points with four games remaining.

All started great for the league leaders as they found themselves 0-1 up in only the third minute with another great left foot strike from the edge of the area by Miguel Gómez.

The Tenerife side levelled 10 minutes later when the Lanzarote defence was caught napping and midfielder Juanqui tucked the ball home.

Both keepers were kept busy in a fast moving game. Rojillos keeper Agoney scrambled away an outrageous volley from inside his own half by midfielder Guti, shortly after the Lanzarote players and bench were outraged when midfielder Marcos Cabrera was through on goal and was pulled back, the Rojillos were certain they were going to be awarded a penalty which in turn would have given the ref no option but also to have red carded the last defender. The official chose to let play continue as the visitors felt hard done by.  read more »

UD Lanzarote 3 UD Telde 0

The Rojillos return to the league summit after a six week absence following an outstanding first half display against the eighth placed side UD Telde.

Prior to the match manager Adolfo Pérez had invited 10 of their foreign fans to join the squad for breakfast at the Sands Beach resort in Costa Teguise. A good touch from Lanzarote´s longest ever serving manager.

Lanzarote began the match with a spring in their step and were totally dominant from as soon as the ref whistled for the start of the match until he blew for half time. The Gran Canarian side just could not get out of their own half as the Rojillos midfield governed by Vladi and Javi Betancort were closing down their opponents, forcing errors and regaining possession the instant it was lost. Mauri and Toñito were a constant nightmare for the defenders on either flank whilst Rosmen was winning everything in the air and constantly making off the ball runs.

In the 16th minute Rosmen leapt towards the sky and perfectly angled his cushioned header into the path of Toñito, the veteran winger had one touch then struck the ball with venom into the left hand corner from 15 yards to send his side into a well deserved 1-0 lead.

Only two minutes later and Toñito was at it again. This time he cut inside his defender on the left wing and from just inside the box fired in a curling drive which the keeper did superbly well by getting his fingers onto it and tipping over for a corner.

The second goal was inevitable. In the 25th minute Toñito put a through ball down the middle and Rosmen left his defender for dead on a diagonal run and slipped the ball under the advancing keeper to give his side daylight with a 2-0 advantage.

Attacking midfielder Ayoze Pérez, built stocky with the bald head and wearing number seven rejoined Lanzarote in  read more »

CF Union Viera 0 UD Lanzarote 0

Lanzarote´s defence has improved all season and in their last 10 away matches they have just conceded three goals though the Rojillos have not won away in seven matches.
