More Friendly Scores
Two more JFL-related pre-season friendly games to report, with Yokogawa Musashino having lost 2-0 to J2's Montedio Yamagata on Thursday, while Honda Lock took on J1 giants - and 2005 Emperor's Cup opponents - Kashima Antlers on Friday. It was Lock, however, who actually opened the scoring thanks to a good effort from 20-year-old forward Shoma Mizunaga in the thirteenth minute and indeed they were still on level terms at half-time, but Antlers made a number of substitutions at half time and eventually ran out comfortable 5-1 winners.

Early JFL Fixtures Announced
The first two rounds of fixtures for the new JFL season have been issued, with the rest to follow on Friday 24th. Toyama will clearly be the place to be on the opening day, however, with 2005 runners-up YKK AP kicking things off with a fascinating clash against new boys Rosso Kumamoto - but that's not all, as they are followed in a double-header by local rivals Alo's Hokuriku, matched up with another promoted side, JEF Club. The third and final new team, FC Ryukyu, could scarcely have a trickier start, as they begin at championship hopefuls Tochigi SC; but it's Mitsubishi Mizushima who probably have the most difficult time, as they begin awat at Honda FC before hosting Tochigi in the second round.
