Maceys Lanzarote

Maceys is a quality British supermarket based in Tías, Lanzarote offering a fabulous selection of your favourite brands and products from the UK.

Maceys LanzaroteGeoff & Sue Lockwood

Established in 2009, Maceys are situated on the high street in Tías, which is a central location for residents and visitors to stock up on food, toiletries and gift items that you miss from home.

The difference with Maceys is one that you can taste, as this supermarket only stocks British sourced goods, as opposed to Spanish made British goods. Although they can look the same from the branding, they are a different recipe to the ones we know and love. A good example of this is Cadbury’s chocolate and one of the reasons why their range of confectionery is very popular with residents.

UD Lanzarote 2 CD Atletico Victoria 2

As the match entered into its 91st minute and with the Rojillos leading 2-0, one could have been forgiven for believing that Lanzarote had just secured another home victory. The Tenerife side were having none of that and hit two goals in space of a minute and deservedly secure a point in their bid to avoid relegation.

The-Rojillos-wingback-and-vice-Captain-Angel-Gil

The game had been moved forward a day earlier as return flights to Tenerife for the Sunday were fully booked due to carnival. The opening half hour of this game was poor with both sides unable to keep possession and neither goalkeeper was tested.

In the 34th minute January signing Adrián Barerrá decided to bring a bit of quality to the game when he whipped in a beauty of a cross from the left. Atléticos goalkeeper dived out to clear the danger but he could only get his fingertips on the ball and pushed it straight into the path of the league’s top scorer Rosmen. The Lanzarote Captain adjusted his feet slightly and with his chest guided the ball into the vacant net for his 22nd goal of the campaign to send his side 1-0 up going into the half time break.

The Tenerife manager made a couple of changes at half time and opted for a three man defence. This was a brave decision by the away side as Lanzarote have been formidable up front this season scoring more goals than any other team in the league.

The 19th placed side made this new formation work well and just four minutes into the second half Lanzarote´s man of the match Ángel Gil had to slide in to clear an effort off the goal line.

In the 56th minute the Lanzarote goalkeeper Rayco who is deputising for the suspended Agoney made two terrific instinctive saves within the space of a couple of seconds from midfielder Galván and striker David.

Midway through the second half great footwork from  read more »
