Quarter Final Play Off: Elche B 2, UD Lanzarote 0

Two second half goals for the hosts will automatically make them favourites to qualify for the next round, however do not forget Lanzarote have not lost at home for over two years.

Rojillos

At the 5pm kick off temperatures at the wonderful Martínez Valero stadium were in excess of 30 degrees and playing on the biggest pitch in Spain against players all under 23 years of age was always going to be a difficult task for manager Adolfo Pérez´s men.

The first half Lanzarote coped well and whilst Elche´s second team dominated possession very few chances were created.

In the second half as expected Lanzarote began to  read more »

Behind The Scenes At Ironman Lanzarote

Tomorrow around 1800 athletes will set off at 7AM to compete in the world’s toughest triathlon event. Some will complete the course in less than 9 hours, others will push the 17 hour time limit to the maximum, and many will stop along the way. For them, it will be one of the biggest days of their life, but without an army of over 4,000 volunteers and staff, it couldn’t happen.

We thought we’d go behind the scenes of this iconic event, which is so valuable to the island’s economy, to show you some of the work that goes on.

UD Lanzarote Play Off

PLAY OFF 2015-2016

U.D. Lanzarote have been drawn against Elche B in the first round of the Play Offs. The Valencian side finished fourth in their league and no side scored more goals than them.

elche-b

Elche B won 20 games, drew 9 and lost 9. Their football ground is around a 30 minute drive from Alicante airport. There are no direct flights from Lanzarote to Alicante or Valencia so the route will probably be via Madrid or Las Palmas.

The first leg of the match will be played away in Elche on either the Saturday 21st or Sunday 22nd of May (time and date to be confirmed). The return home leg will be played a week later at time and date to be confirmed.

C.D. Atlético Granadilla 0, U.D. Lanzarote 4

The Rojillos ended the league season with an emphatic win led by their captain Rosmen who bagged a hat-trick. This guarantees a second placed finish so Lanzarote will now have the advantage of playing a side that finished in fourth spot with the second leg to be played at home.  read more »

UD Lanzarote 3 UD Ibarra 0

The Rojillos finished their final home league match of the season with an impressive win and in doing so have made it two complete seasons without defeat on home soil.

More importantly this win lifts Lanzarote into second spot and as long as they win next Sunday away in Tenerife versus bottom club Atlético Granadilla then they shall remain second. This will give the Rojillos a lower placed side in the playoffs and also the second leg will be played at home.

The Rojillos looked intent on scoring from the very beginning wanting to end their run of two games both ending scoreless.

UD Ibarra had begun the season well and for several weeks were league leaders before slipping away early in the New Year and are now mid table. In the early part of the match the Tenerife side kept a well organised defence and were a constant threat on the break.

In the 16th minute a one two with Rosmen and Toñito allowed the latter a strike at goal but the keeper did well saving with his feet.  read more »

UD Las Zocas 0 UD Lanzarote 0

Whilst an away draw against the leagues fifth placed side on paper looks good the Rojillos were desperate for a win to keep on the trail of league leaders Santa Brígida who had won the previous evening.

Lanzarote remain in third spot but are now three points away from second placed Las Palmas B and a whopping 6 points behind the league leaders with just two games to go.

The Rojillos will now need a minor miracle to finish top and qualify for the Copa Del Rey but should Santa Brígida lose both their remaining games and Las Palmas B take no more than three points in their last two games then there is a chance.  read more »

UD Lanzarote 0 UD Cruz Santa 0

Lanzarote have now qualified for the playoffs for Segunda B (League 1) for the second year running but failing to win against the league´s second from bottom club will not be how they would have liked to celebrate.

Sundays-line-up UD Lanzarote

The Rojillos were desperate for all three points as league leaders Santa Brígida and second placed side Las Palmas B had already played the evening before. The in form Santa Brígida cruised to a 3-0 home win against 14th placed side Unión Viera whilst Las Palmas B dropped two points in a goalless draw against 15th placed CF Arucas.

All this means that Lanzarote´s chances of finishing top and qualifying for the Copa Del Rey (F.A. Cup) next season have been dealt an almighty blow. UD Villa Santa Brígida are now four points clear of the Rojillos with just 3 games remaining.

Las Palmas B remain one point ahead of Lanzarote and finishing second does give you a so called advantage of playing one of the weaker teams in the playoffs with the away Leg first.

The game itself was pretty much how this report is written, disappointing! Some described this game as the worst performance of the season but in true honesty those people are just disappointed. The Rojillos completely dominated the match with two good penalty shouts turned down and a super Miguel Gómez strike flying off the woodwork. It was one of those games that just was not going our way.  read more »

CD Santa Ursula 3 UD Lanzarote 2

It has been an awful weekend for the Rojillos, they began as league leaders and by Sunday 2pm they were in third spot.

UD Lanzarote team-170416

Second placed Santa Brígida and third placed Las Palmas B both leapfrog Lanzarote who now trail top spot by two points with four games remaining.

All started great for the league leaders as they found themselves 0-1 up in only the third minute with another great left foot strike from the edge of the area by Miguel Gómez.

The Tenerife side levelled 10 minutes later when the Lanzarote defence was caught napping and midfielder Juanqui tucked the ball home.

Both keepers were kept busy in a fast moving game. Rojillos keeper Agoney scrambled away an outrageous volley from inside his own half by midfielder Guti, shortly after the Lanzarote players and bench were outraged when midfielder Marcos Cabrera was through on goal and was pulled back, the Rojillos were certain they were going to be awarded a penalty which in turn would have given the ref no option but also to have red carded the last defender. The official chose to let play continue as the visitors felt hard done by.  read more »
