UD Lanzarote 1 Club Atletico Granadilla 0

A super start in their first home game for the Rojillos (The Reds), a solitary goal early in the second half against last season’s champions by the lively Colombian Mauri earnt the Rojillos their first maximum points.

Lanzarote began the match at a good pace and after just two minutes a good cross from Rosmen was agonizingly inches away from the boot of Mauri and Kennedy.

The hosts dominated the early exchanges and it wasn’t until the 20th minute that the Tenerife side imposed their first threat of danger, a good solo run by Josimar was abruptly ended when Rojillos defender Raúl slid in to claim the ball as the striker was about to unleash.

In the 37th minute the temperamental super Lanzarote winger again showed his dark side as he got involved in a brawl and was shown the red card, fortunately for Lanzarote the visitors also had a player sent off during the handbags at ten paces.

If it had been difficult to play in the intense heat at the start of play now both teams had to play the rest of the match with just ten men apiece whilst the heat was peaking in the mid 30´s.

Gay Airlines Is A Total Scam

We were first contacted by Richard Essen back in April. He asked us for a meeting to discuss his business idea for bringing gay travellers to the island. We met with him in our office in Costa Teguise and he seemed plausible and very keen to help Lanzarote develop new tourist markets with the gay community in Europe.

We shared some of our contacts with him, told him we would help in any way we could and looked forward to working with him as he set his business up on the island.

Within a couple of days, we were inundated with emails from him with some very big ideas about creating a gay airline, with special airport check ins and bespoke “6 Star” accommodation on the island. He also copied me on emails where he had told people he was working in partnership with us through our sister website Gay Lanza.

Alarm bells started ringing for me at this stage – by now it was late April. Things just didn’t feel right, and each time I questioned Rich for more information about the business and the funding, I felt I was being fobbed off by him.

On 28th April I sent him an email telling him “…we have decided we don't want to go any further with you in your quest to create a new gay scene on the island.”  read more »
