Real Sporting San Jose 0 UD Lanzarote 3

These are unbelievable times for U.D Lanzarote. After going down to 10 men early in the second half the Rojillos overcame adversities with three second half super goals to extend their lead at the top of the league to five points.

UD Lanzarote Starting-eleven-versus-Real-Sporting-10th-Jan

The first half didn’t produce much in the way of goal mouth action with both sides being cautious to the extreme.  The only notable events occurred late in the first period when the Gran Canarian side came close with an effort from striker Fernando, immediately the Rojillos hit back when Mauri crossed for Javi Melián but the Lanzarote striker was just inches away from connecting to give his side the lead.

The second half began terribly for the Rojillos. Without injured captain Rosmen and the suspended vice captain Toñito it was defender Falo wearing the captains armband. Manager Adolfo Perez´s third captain reacted badly to a challenge and raised his hands to the face of a Real Sporting player.  After just two minutes of football being played in the second period Falo was red carded and the Rojillos were forced to play the entire second half with just ten players.

A Reader Writes - A Different Kind Of Lanzarote Holiday

One of our regular readers asked me if she could write about her recent holiday to the island, and of course we agreed! As you’ll see, it was a different sort of holiday to most, as the family spent their time exploring some of the less visited parts of the island, and they even stayed in three different locations while they were here.

I’m sure you’ll enjoy reading it as much as we did, and it may give you some ideas for new places to visit:


One family, Mum Dad and Twin 14 year olds. Fourth trip in as many years to Lanzarote, usually part of a Canary Island hopping four week Christmas/New Year Holiday, this year concentrating solely on Lanzarote.

The team is split in two, thought wise, the older two excited at the prospect of delving deeper than a 7 night stay into this intriguing island. The teenagers slightly ‘concerned’ that ‘we will be bored’!

There in was the challenge!  read more »
