UD Lanzarote 3 CD Laguna 1

A super team performance along with an exceptional display of talent from two goal hero Louis Kennedy improves the Rojillos incredible home form, seven wins and one draw in their eight home matches maintains Lanzarote´s second place standing in the league table.

Louis-Kennedy-netting-two-and-in-the-form-of-his-lifeUD Lanzarote 18 Dec

The Conejeros (locals) who were suffering from a long injury and suspension list knew that this was going to be no excuse for the local fans not to celebrate yet another home win especially as it was against the leagues bottom club.

The Rojillos instantly took the game to the Tenerife side. The first concrete opportunity was to be a sign for the rest of the match. 21 year old Louis Kennedy danced through the heart of the visitors defence only to see his shot at the near post saved by the Tenerife keeper.

Lanzarote were totally dominant, a great pass from the ever improving Fellani lookalike, Kilian; set up Toñito, the winger delicately chipped the ball over the keeper but unfortunately the ball had a little too much weight on it and missed the bar by inches.

The quickly settled in Italian Andrea forced a good low save from the Laguna keeper with a shot from just inside the box and Rosmen was forcing his side closer as his effort narrowly missed the target.

The visitors had to crack with the amount of pressure that  read more »

Christmas Programme Arrecife 2014/15

The Ayuntamiento de Arrecife have confirmed their programme of events for Christmas, New Year & Kings in the capital of Lanzarote.

Arrecife_1Arrecife_2

A series of carol concerts around the capital, the traditional San Silvestre run and a tapas fair are part of the festive programme in the capital of Lanzarote, as well as an artificial ice rink which is free to use until the 7th January.

The new Marina Lanzarote has been incorporated into the programme for this year, the San Silvestre race will start from this location instead of the usual position in Charco de San Ginés, and the Reyes Magos de Oriente will arrive by boat at noon on the 5th January with tonnes of sweets to collect letters as a prelude before the evening procession along the avenida marítima.

There has been a discussion about changing the Kings procession from the Charco de San Ginés to Playa Reducto, in the other direction, leaving from the Cabildo to the Ayuntamiento so that spectators were closer to the centre. We’ll confirm details of the time and route closer to the event when a final decision has been made.

The street C/ Alférez Cabrera Tavío will remain closed to traffic over Christmas following a petition from shops in that zone, the council are considering pedestrianising that area as part of the Zonas Comerciales Abiertas ‘Arrecife el Puerto’ however for the moment the closure is only over the festive period. Christmas ornaments and a red carpet have been installed along the street from the intersection with Calle José Antonio until the start of Calle Canalejas.

An exhibition from Carlos Matallana “Pintura Digital” will be on display in the sala de arte Charco de San Ginés until the end of January.

The location of the ice rink was given as the central urban park which we assume to be the Parque José Ramírez Cerdá on the seafront by the main pedestrian shopping street and castle, where the Belén (nativity scene) is usually installed.
