Cay Sun Beach more friendly and the cheapest of the three. Princess Lanzatote is our favourite, very friendly, lots going on and...

    York City on Friday

    Strange club. Make it hard for anyone to buy tickets if you are an away supporter. The owners are unliked. The fans trashed their own ground in May when victourious in getting potential promotion. We were banned last year by the Council, and club I guess, from a friendly 12 months ago.
