Zweigen Kanazawa - The Race For The JFL Hots Up
The race to reach the JFL for 2007 is warming up very nicely now, with the news that Hokushinetsu League side Zweigen Kanazawa have strengthened their initial 2006 squad, which - as announced here on JNFN some time ago - consisted almost entirely of former Kanazawa SC players. A trio of 21-year-old midfield players instead come to them from the fringes of various points in the J-League.

Tomohisa Yoshida arrives in Ishikawa prefecture from Oita Trinita, although he spent last season on loan with J2 side Mito Hollyhock. Satoshi Takahashi was a rookie in 2005 at Yokohama FC, while Tatsuro Kimura is a product of the youth set-up at Sanfrecce Hiroshima. A 20-year-old defender, Hideki Okouchi from Vegalta Sendai, also moves to the ambitious Zweigen.

Honda FC Add Students To Squad
Five young players have been added to Honda FC's squad as they attempt to recover from 2005's disastrous fifth-place finish. No fewer than three of them are 22-year-old midfielders: Nozomi Nishi from Ritsumeikan University, Ryosuke Horikiri from Toyo University and Takahiro Tsuchiya from Kokushikan University. Elsewhere, Kazuhito Kawasumi, 21, is a defender from Shizuoka Sangyo University and
Takumi Oguri is an eighteen-year-old midfielder who graduates from the club's own Honda FC U-18 side.
