The level of wind was also abnormal for this time of year, very strong gusts were recorded on the 28th & 29th of the month, reminding residents of the tropical storm Delta which hit the islands on that date in November 2005.

U.D. Lanzarote headed into their Christmas party with the word party definitely being high on the agenda.
With their third win in the last four away matches alongside the league’s best home form they have climbed the league table sitting in second spot just one point behind league leaders CD Marino.

When a player is injured his debutant steps in and does a better job than him. The fact is the whole squad has only one wish and that is for their team to succeed. I haven’t seen an atmosphere at the club such as this since those fantastic Copa Del Rey games 10 years ago.
The Gran Canarian side began the game with read more »
