If you ever go to a UD Lanzarote home match, you’re likely to be impressed by the  amount of British and Irish fans cheering the Rojillos on in their red-and-blue shirts.

That sight is down to one bloke – Ian Lane – whose infectious passion for football and the island he loves is unquenchable. Ian has been the Gazette’s regular football correspondent for several years, and has never let us down once, providing informative and entertaining reviews of the ups and downs at the Ciudad Deportivo stadium. Google “Football Lanzarote” and the top results are Ian’s brilliant FB page and website.

Anyone who’s chatted with Ian knows about his love for Lanzarote and the way he still can’t seem to believe his luck that he ended up here, with a gorgeous family, wheeling and dealing and swimming like a salmon in the sea.

Have a good one, Ian.
