Union Sur Yaiza 1 UD Lanzarote 0

A goal from a set play ten minutes into the second half settled this disappointing Lanzarote derby. This is the fifth game these sides have played against each other in the Tercera Division (Fourth Tier) and Lanzarote have just picked up a single point.

UD Lanzarote Manager Adolfo Pérez

The Rojillos were very optimistic prior to the match with their unbeaten run still intact but with a Yaiza side who never let Lanzarote settle on the ball for a second it was always going to be a set play that would decide the outcome of this match.

It may have been a 4.45pm kick off but the heat did not relent as these two teams set about their business.  Much of the early stages were battled out in midfield and it wasn’t until the 20th minute for the first strike to be hit in anger. Yaiza´s midfielder Juanca´s tame effort comfortably found the arms of the Rojillos keeper Agoney.

Local Author Stan Arnold

I was recently contacted by Stan Arnold, who is an author living in Playa Blanca. Stan has lived on the island for 5 years, and has written four books, one of which is based on the island. The stories are all linked, and feature a couple of hapless corporate video producers, Mick and Jim.

Stan is a copywriter, speech and scriptwriter and that certainly comes across in the books, which are well written, very descriptive and well characterized. The humour is typically British - think Red Dwarf meets Monty Python.  read more »
