Alarm Bells Ring As Grulla Committee Resign En Masse
Ambitious Tohoku League outfit Grulla Morioka are in crisis, following the resignation of their entire executive committee at an extraordinary general meeting held in Morioka just before Christmas. This has left supporters fearing that players will leave the club and render useless any promotion challenge that Grulla might be able to put together for 2006.

These dramatic events come a month after the team's failure to win a place in the JFL, having finished joint top of the Tohoku League Division 1, famously tied dead level with TDK Akita. But coach Shinichi Muto subsequently handed in his own resignation - as reported here on JNFN - and fans will be fearing that the collapse of Okinawa Kariyushi in comparable circumstances may end up being repeated in the north.

FC Horikoshi - Fan Suggestions To Decide New Name
Gunma prefecture's FC Horikoshi are currently asking for fans' suggestions for a new team name as they aim for a J-League place in the coming seasons. Horikoshi, who finished eighth in 2005, are one of several JFL sides keen to make the step up to J2 and regard the adoption of a new name as a further stage in their development to becoming a pro club. All suggestions are to be sent to the club by 7th January and the person making the winning proposal will be presented with a season ticket for life.
