PRE SEASON UPDATE, 26th July 2017,
Sales of season tickets are going well. As you can see Lanzarote´s most famous fan Antonio was one of the first to buy his pensioners season ticket and of course paid the extra five Euros to become a Socio (member).
Antonio vows this season not to be as lenient on the officials and has been practising this summer to hurl his abuse to a new level. Season tickets are available from me at Teguise market on Sundays or drop me a line and we will find a way of getting it to you. Alternatively they are available at the club from Davinia in the office between 6-8pm Monday till Friday. 50 Euros adults, 25 Euros Pensioners, 18yrs and under are admitted for free.
The players returned for Pre season training on the 20th July and the first friendly match is tonight Wednesday 26th July at the Teguise football stadium at 8pm versus CD Tahiche first team.
On Saturday 29th July at 7pm all of the UD Lanzarote´s first team squad will be on the beach in Puerto Del Carmen (Playa Grande, 100 yards up the Avenida from Los Fariones Hotel and Linekers Bar, just above the public beach toilets) for their annual beach training session. Youngsters are more than welcome to train and have photos with the players as the entire squad will be having their photos promoting the new 2017/18 kit.
The San Ginés tournament will take place on the 3rd, 4th and 5th August at our home football stadium in Arrecife at times and fixtures to be confirmed. The three teams involved are Segunda B side (League 1) Las Palmas B and a side that was narrowly relegated from Segunda B last season CD Mensajero and UD Lanzarote
The annual Tinajo tournament held in Tinajo (take a jumper) is on the 11th and 12th August with four teams competing, newly promoted CF Haria, U.S. Yaiza, CD Tinajo and UD Lanzarote. Times of matches will be confirmed closer to the date.
The San Bartolome mini tournament involving CD San Bartolome, CD Tahiche and UD Lanzarote will be on Tuesday 15th August. That following Sunday 20th August the league will commence. Unfortunately fixtures have not been released but are due anytime now and will be posted asap.
The league will consist of 21 teams as CF Haria and La Palma side Los Llanos have both been promoted even though that was a final playoff match and only one team should have been promoted. It is a very complicated situation but Los Llanos fielded a player who was only recently signed. Haria lost the playoff final but appealed to the football Federation and a mistake by the Federation forced them to promote both sides.
UD Lanzarote has lost many players from last season including British boy Louis Kennedy who has moved to U.S. Yaiza but fellow British player midfielder Brad Cockerill remains with the club.
An interesting player to look out for is 19 year old Gaston Cedrez. The attacking midfielder/winger is on loan from Las Palmas and was previously contracted with the youth academy at Atlético Madrid before transferring to giants Real Madrid. He is looking sharp in training and is hoping to get his career back on track.
