CD El Cotillo 3 UD Lanzarote 1

The Rojillos (The Reds) took over 100 fans to Fuerteventura who were all in a jovial mood but unfortunately this had to go down as the worst performance of the season. Lanzarote are still however the leaders of the division.

UD Lanzarote Fans in Fuerteventura

In the first minute of the match only a good save by Agoney prevented the home side from taking the lead. Against the run of play the Rojillos went in front on their first attack. Good work from the Colombian Mauri as he beat the left back and fired in a low shot, the keeper saved his effort but the rebound went high into the air and there are not many players who are going to out jump the towering frame of the Lanzarote skipper Rosmen who nodded the ball home into the empty net to give his side a 0-1 lead.

UD Lanzarote 2 Las Palmas B 1

It was first versus second with Lanzarote topping the table and the game certainly delivered on expectation. At times the Rojillos were playing some fantastic football but just as they were playing some of their best the Las Palmas B side hit back which led to a nervous finale to a superb match.

UD Lanzarote The-starting-line-up

Things are going extraordinarily well for the Rojillos (The Reds). Just beaten the second placed team, not lost a game all season and are one of only 11 teams in all Spanish National leagues who remain unbeaten alongside Real Madrid. Lanzarote have won their last five on the bounce and are now 27 games unbeaten at home which all leads to U.D. Lanzarote sitting at the pinnacle of the league table two points clear of the second placed side.

Please let me apologise to several people who were looking to buy merchandise at the clubs Megastore at the match. My daughter was ill and so I was on my own and customers were looking to buy as kick off approached. I quickly closed up to watch the match not offering apologies as I sprinted (hobbled) to the stand to take notes on the match.

So glad I got to my seat quick as this game got off to a flyer and  read more »

UD Lanzarote 1 SD Tenisca 0

The new leaders of the Canarian Tercera division (Fourth Tier) are U.D. Lanzarote. The stats look fantastic. 26 games unbeaten at home and the only remaining side in the league not to have tasted defeat this season.


This may not have been a master class performance but grinding out a result in such circumstances is what teams who win championships do.

To the annoyance of many, Lanzarote had to change the kick off time and date twice and because of this there were many fans that were unable to see the game. Perhaps it might be advisable for our La Palma friends to book a little in advance when needing a flight here as this is not the only time this has happened. Tenisca need two flights to get to Lanzarote and the match was brought forward as there were no seats left on the Sunday flight.

The Rojillos dominated the early stages though it was the visitors who had the first chance in the 12th minute when a corner was floated in deep and midfielder Jordan hit a volley which rattled the side netting.

Five minutes later and Toñito latched onto a pass and hit a powerful volley from a narrow angle which produced a fine diving save from the La Palma goalkeeper Aáron.  The Rojillos were now well on top and in the 28thminute Kennedy found himself with space and unleashed a good effort from 20 yards that narrowly missed the left hand post. Two minutes later and Captain Rosmen forced the keeper into another good save with a  read more »

Travelling to Tenerife without three of their regular starters, Rosmen (wife just had first baby), Mauri (suspension) and Brad Cockerill (injury) was not the ideal preparation however this season it does go to show what depth this squad has.

The Tenerife side only two seasons ago were playing in the Segunda B (League 1) and only last season missed out on  read more »

UD Lanzarote 3 CD Tenerife 2

It has always been great game between these two sides and this was no exception. Both teams must be applauded for how they fought in such heat. At kick off it was 36 degrees and how the pace of the game continued throughout the match was incredible. Even the bar run out of water but fortunately the beer was still flowing.

UD Lanzarote-returning-with-a-win-to-make-it-three-wins-in-a-row

Lanzarote began the game in great style. Just three minutes in and captain Rosmen sent winger Toñito through with a well measured pass and Lanzarote´s number 11 made no  mistake surprising the Tenerife goalkeeper by beating him at the near post to send his side 1-0 up.

In the 8th minute a deep cross from Marcos Cabrera found Toñito and from a narrow angle the winger with all the confidence in the world blasted a volley from a  read more »
