16th August 2010
Apologies for the delay in updating but normal service will be resumed shortly. Los Rojillos (reds) kick off the season on the 29th August with an away match in Tenerife versus U.D. Realejos and the following week their first home match will be against the best side in this division last year C.D. Corralejo.
Click onto fixtures for a complete list of this seasons matches.
One for the diary is the derby match against Marítima on the 31st October.
Following relegation U.D. Lanzarote will commence their 40th Anniversary in the Tercera Division (third division) which is the fourth tier of Spanish football.
As ever players have come and gone. Most notably club Captain Oscar Vladimir was offered a good contract with Madrid side Puertollano. Vladi has been a fantastic player for the Rojillos and will be sadly missed. The Lanzarote faithful easily understand his desire to play in higher level football and to represent a club in Spain’s third league is a minimum for a person who has his attitude and ability. Good luck Vladi!
The new captain is the outstanding Rubén Rodríguez who will lead out his side under the orders of the new Mister (gaffer) Quico De Diego. The new manager from Tenerife will fully understand that a play off finish will be his minimum requirement.
English lad Ian Robinson has decided not to re-sign a contract and is currently listening to offers from both England and local clubs on the island.
Both season tickets and gate prices have been slashed. An adult season ticket is 50 Euros, Pensioner 30 Euros and anyone 15 or under is admitted free of charge at Lanzarote. To pay at the gate an adult is 5 Euros and pensioners 3 Euros. Again 15 years or under is free.
