UD Lanzarote 4 SD Tenisca 2

The Rojillos gained their first win of the season in an incredible first half which saw five goals scored in an 18 minute period sending Lanzarote up to sixth spot in the table after three games.

The starting XI and a few helpers

The match was played two hours later than normal (2pm) as this was to assist the La Palma side with their connecting flights via Tenerife. At kick off the temperature was 30 degrees and climbing but this did not deter both sides playing good entertaining football.

With two draws in their opening two matches Adolfo Pérez´s men were under pressure to secure their first win of the season in front of their home crowd.

With the new signings of Dani López and Borja , the Rojillos manager is not short of attacking options alongside Rosmen and wingers Kennedy, Miguel Gómez and the suspended Toñito. I am sure there will be plenty of goals in this team this season.

The game began at a fast pace despite the ferocious heat with Rosmen just firing wide with a volley from 25 yards after three minutes.The Abram family from Oldham with Lanzarote´s legendary fan Antonio.

In the 20th minute the La Palma side broke on a quick counter and with two Tenisca players free in the centre it was Borja who read the situation sprinting back to clear the danger.

The breakthrough came in the 24th minute. Rosmen controlled the ball on the edge of the six yard box and laid the ball back perfectly for Miguel Gómez. The midfielder angled his body and struck from the edge of the box placing his right foot shot with power into the top right hand corner hitting the underside of the bar and bouncing into the net.

This lad can hit a ball with either his left or right foot with power and accuracy. Last season Miguel was runner up for the player of the season but was let down with his four red cards, if he can control his temperament he will be the player to watch this season.  read more »

Free Book Excerpt - Walking in Lanzarote and Fuerteventura

We’re coming up to walking season in Lanzarote - the summer is pretty much too hot to enjoy walking far on the island, but winter is perfect for exploring some of the stunning places and incredible views we have all over the island. And where else in the world can you stroll into a volcano?

We’ve been recommending Paddy Dillon’s excellent book, Walking in Lanzarote and Fuerteventura,  for a few years now. It has 45 walks in it, including 14 stages of the GR131 trail, and is full of great photos and useful tips, as well as practical information like getting transport and where to stop for food and drink. There are even two walks on La Graciosa, and all have maps and turn by turn directions.

The publishers, Cicerone,  contacted us recently and offered to let us publish an excerpt and this is Walk 8 - Cueva de los Naturalistas, a 9KM walk which will take about three hours.  read more »

Lanzarote Restaurant Review - Toro, Puerto del Carmen

This one has been on our list for some time, and we finally got there over the weekend. Toro is in an unusual position, on the roundabout at the top of Calle Reina Sofia, in Puerto del Carmen, where you can go one way towards Puerto Calero, and the other towards the airport.

Toro Entrance  Toro Dining

The restaurant is owned and run by award winning chef Luis León and his son Roberto and is famous for its grilled meats. There’s plenty of room in the restaurant and tables are well spaced out - we were seated on the patio area, which is well protected from any wind with glass windows. Outside, there is an open air patio, so you can sit under the sun or stars, and an area where smokers are welcome.  read more »
