It was a joint decision made by the Federación de Automovilismo de Las Palmas (FALP) and the Ayuntamiento of Teguise for two reasons, the first being a low inscription for the race with only 12 teams registered, plus additional security services and personnel would be required for the election due to take place on Sunday.

A new date has been proposed by FALP for the 14th of June, which will need to be ratified by Teguise council. The organisers apologised to those teams registered and explained the  read more »

It was another disastrous start for Lanzarote. A shot from midfielder Joseph was saved by the Rojillos keeper Agoney but the rebound fell kindly for Héctor who made no mistake firing low and hard to give his side a 1-0 lead. The Rojillos were not happy as they believed Héctor was clearly offside but their discontentment was brushed aside by the dormant official.

Despite this setback Lanzarote were playing some good football and  read more »
