Tohoku League Division 2(S) - Update
Taking advantage of the fact that they have been scheduled three early home games in Division 2 (South) of the Tohoku League, Marisol Matsushima made it nine points out of nine on Sunday with a 1-0 win over Northern Peaks Koriyama to go top of the table. Newcomers Shichigahama SC move third, after a home draw with FC Perada took them above Furukawa Battery.

Both the newly-promoted sides notched up their first wins at Regional League level, TDK Shinwakai beating underachievers Aster Aomori, while Vanrarure Hachinohe were too strong for Hokuto Bank.

Shikoku League - Round 5
Kamatamare Sanuki stole a potentially vital march in the race for this year's Shikoku League crown, when they defeated title holders Nangoku Kochi 1-0 on Sunday. Striker Eiji Natsuda grabbed the only goal in the sixteenth minutes to open up a five-point gap between the two teams in the current table. Ehime Shimanami are Kamatamare's closest challengers after they beat Sanyo Electric Tokushima 3-0. In the bottom half of the division, Alex SC and newcomers Tokushima Vortis Amateur both gained their first wins of the year, as Sanwa Club and Ventana AC look as if they will now find it hard to avoid the relegation play-offs.

Kyushu League - Round 6
A single Eiji Komine goal early in the second half against Kaiho Bank SC on Sunday was enough to send pre-season favourites V Varen Nagasaki to the top of the Kyushu League for the first time this year. Previous front-runners Nippon Steel Oita slipped up at home to a resurgent New Wave Kitakyushu to drop back to second on goal difference - V Varen take on New Wave this coming weekend in what is looking like a crunch fixture. Elsewhere, Okinawa Kariyushi thumped promoted Nanakuma Tombies 5-0 to move mid-table, while Osumi NIFS United gained a potentially vital win of their own in the battle to avoid relegation when they overcame fellow strugglers Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Nagasaki 2-1.

Kanto League Division 2 - Round 5
The strange shape of the Kanto League Division 2 developed further on Sunday, as FC Machida Zelvia stretched their lead to a remarkable eight points after onle five matches following a 2-0 win at Furukawa Electrics Chiba. Kanagawa Teachers move second on goal difference as they beat an Aries FC side in danger of a second successive relegation.
All Kamisu SC achieved their first win of the season in fine style at Ome FC, but Hitachi Tochigi Uva and Nirasaki Astros remain mid-table after a draw that does neither side any favours.

Kanto League Division 1 - Round 5
Yaita SC and YSCC both continued their surprise starts to the Kanto League Division 1 season on Sunday to occupy the top two positions. Promoted side Hanno Bruder were the latest team to lose to the reinvigorated Yaita, who are three points clear of YSCC - winners at Toshiba Fuchu. Title holders Luminozo Sayama continued their attempts to get 2006 back on track with a 3-1 win over Toho Titanium, while Saitama SC put four past bottom place MSDF Atsugi Marcus.

Kansai League Division 2 - Round 6 Sunday Games
A single goal for Technonet Osaka was enough to defeat Kobe FC Senior C in one of the two Kansai League Division 2 fixtures on Sunday, taking Technonet back to within a point of leaders FC Kyoto BAMB 1993 - while rooting Kobe FC to the foot of the table. Hermano Osaka meanwhile move into third after a 3-0 win at Kohga School.

A full six points behind them are nearest challengers FC Mi-o Biwako Kusatsu and Kobe FC 1970, narrow victors over Sanyo Electric Sumoto and Kyoto Shiko Club respectively.

Hokushinetsu Division 2 - Round 5
In the Hokushinetsu League Division 2 derby match on Sunday, Valiente Toyama went to the top of the table as a result of their 2-1 win over Toyama Shinjo Club. Maruoka Phoenix follow them just a point behind in a very tight division, having beaten previous leaders FC Kanazu. Relegated side FC Antelope have pulled themselves back into contention after their win over TOP Niigata, and draw specialists LionPower Komatsu could only manage another tie with winless Nissei Resin.

Hokushinetsu Division 1 - Round 5
Hokushinetsu League Division 1 leaders Japan Soccer College may have delivered the death knell to Zweigen Kanazawa's hopes of achieving a JFL place at the end of the season. The students beat last year's Kanazawa SC 1-0 in Sunday's round 5 key fixture to stay top of the division, while Zweigen have now lost two crucial encounters this season, having previously gone down to Matsumoto Yamaga Club. Matsumoto remain level on points with JSC after a 2-0 defeat of Teihens FC and last year's champions Nagano Elsa are just a point off the pace after beating Fervorosa 3-1. At the foot of the table, Ueda Gentian and Niigata University of Management picked up their first point of the season apiece as they drew 1-1.

Hokkaido League - Round 1
Reigning champions Norbritz Hokkaido threw down the gauntlet to any potential challengers in the first round of the 2006 Hokkaido League, crushing ACSC Asahikawa 7-0. Somewhat ominously for those fans hoping for a more competitive league this year, 2005 runners up Blackpecker Hakodate went down 4-1 at Sapporo Football Group. New club Tokachi Fairsky - a relaunch of promoted side Rude Boys, based in Obihiro - managed a good 1-0 win over Barefoot Hokkaido, and Thank FC were held to a draw by Toyota Motors Hokkaido in the other match.

Chugoku League
FC Central Chugoku moved to the top of the Chugoku League three rounds in, with a single second half goal enough to give them a vital win at Hiroshima Fujita SC. The other potential challengers remain in touch, as Fagiano Okayama recovered from their crushing defeat last week by FC Central to put seven past Iwami SC, while Sagawa Kyubin Chugoku picked up two points as they won the penalty shoot-out after struggling to a draw against JFE Steel. In the other match, new side Renofa Yamaguchi claimed their first win at Hitachi Manufacturing Kasado to move off the bottom of the table.

JFL Round 10 - Sunday Scores
Honda FC moved into second spot in the JFL table for the first time this season, after a last-minute goal from Masayuki Ishii gave them a 3-2 win at Sony Sendai. Also picking up a useful away win were Rosso Kumamoto, who now occupy fourth position after another late goal was enough to defeat early league leaders Sagawa Kyubin Tokyo. Tochigi SC could only draw at Arte Takasaki and seem to be developing a somewhat inconsistent streak that could thwart their J-League dreams. There was also a seventh draw in ten games for SC Tottori at home to FC Ryukyu and a potentially vital 89th-minute goal for Ryutsu Keizai University to complete their comeback from two goals down to Mitsubishi Mizushima.

Two Saturday fixtures in Division 2 of the Kansai League saw leaders FC Kyoto BAMB 1993 relinquish their 100% record at the sixth time of asking, held somewhat surprisingly to a goalless draw by new boys Riseisha FC. Moving into second place behind them are Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Kobe, who put five past the division's leakiest defence at Kihoku Football Group.

JFL Round 10 - Saturday Scores
Four games from the JFL to report on briefly this very busy weekend for the Japanese non-league scene. Leaders YKK AP continued their remarkable start to the season with their ninth win in ten matches at Sagawa Kyubin Osaka via Tetsuro Kimura's sixteenth-minute strike. Second-placed Alo's Hokuriku, in contrast, now have just one win and a single goal in four matches following a 0-0 draw at Yokogawa Musashino. Significant action too, though, at the foot of the table, where Sagawa Printing finally got their first victory of 2006. Two goals midway through the second half enabled them to come from behind to defeat JEF Club and also to leapfrog both Ryutsu Keizai University and Honda Lock in the rankings. RKU play fellow strugglers Mitsubishi Mizushima on Sunday, but Lock went down to a 3-2 defeat at FC Kariya, for whom Toshihiro Nishimura scored twice in three minutes shortly after the break to ease relegation nerves for the club formerly known as Denso.

JFL - Round 9
Round 9 of the JFL season last weekend saw YKK AP's Hiroki Kishida hit a hat-trick in a 5-1 win over wooden-spooners Sagawa Printing to go three points clear at the top of the table. Second place Alo's Hokuriku conceded only their third and fourth goals of the season as they fell to defeat for the first time this year, at the hands of in-form Sagawa Kyubin Osaka, who have themselves risen to the top six on the back of three impressive wins against some of the JFL's stronger teams.

One of these sides was Honda FC, now level with Alo's thanks to two goals apiece from their dangerous front pairing of Kodai Suzuki and Junya Nitta against Arte Takasaki. Tochigi SC and Rosso Kumamoto are still in touch at top, following comfortable home wins against Yokogawa Musashino and Honda Lock respectively. Rosso's rivals FC Ryukyu finally managed their first JFL win, Fukutaro Kishida scoring a hat-trick against a Ryutsu Keizai University side who are sinking fast. A first win, too, for draw specialists SC Tottori, who came from 3-1 at JEF Club to win 4-3.

The Nippon Steel Kamaishi against Sendai Nakata Club fixture seems to have been postponed, but two matches did take place on Sunday in the Tohoku League Division 1 on Sunday. Two late goals helped last year's joint champions TDK Akita kick off their 2006 season a 4-0 win over Morioka Zebra, while Wiese Shiogama came from one down to draw with FC Primeiro.

Kansai League - Division 2 Rounds 4 & 5
News is now in of the details of the Kansai League Division 2 programme after last holiday weekend, which saw all eight teams play two matches apiece. FC Kyoto BAMB 1993, relegated from Division 1 at the end of last season, show every sign of being able to bounce back immediately as they retained their 100% record with wins against strugglers Kohga School and, more crucially, Technonet Osaka, who comprise their nearest challengers.

Bottom of the league are Kobe FC Senior C, who picked up their first point of the year with a 1-1 draw against Kihoku Football Group on Sunday but the day before had conceded five to Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Kobe. Newcomers to the league Riseisha FC continue to give a reasonable account of themselves and picked up a second win of the season against Mitsubishi.

Tokai Divisions 1 & 2 - Round 1
The two divisions of the Tokai League kicked of their 2006 seasons on Sunday, with one of the biggest encounters of the year occurring on the opening day of the Division 1 campaign. Champions Shizuoka FC drew 1-1 with newly-promoted hopefuls FC Gifu to set up what is likely to be a lengthy battle for superiority between the two. Last year's runners up, Chukyo University, gained a narrow win over Sagawa Kyubin Chukyo - as did Yazaki Valente against the policemen of ACM Central - but early leaders in the top division are Maruyasu Industry, 3-1 winners over Fujieda City Hall.

Fuyo Club, who missed out on promotion from Division 2 at the end of 2005 by the narrowest possible margin, kicked off the new year with a surprise defeat at home to Kasugai Club. The two newcomers to Regional League football, Morishin's FC and FC Kawasaki, lost by a goal apiece while in the other game, Konica Minolta beat the teachers of Mind House 1-0.

Tohoku League Division 2(S) and 2(N)
Division 2(N) and Division 2(S) of the Tohoku League is getting underway now, with several matches taking place over the weekend. In the northern section, Mizusawa United Club overcame Aster Aomori 3-0 in the opening game of the season for both sides. Most teams in the southern division, meanwhile, have two matches under their belts, Marisol Matsushima and Northern Peaks Koriyama having won both. Of the newly promoted teams, Shichigahama SC are mid-table following their defeat by Northern Peaks, but FC Perada Fukushima have yet to pick up a point and are bottom of the division at this early stage.

Shikoku League - Round 4
There's an astonishing gap emerging between the top and bottom halves of the Shikoku League with nine points already between Sanyo Electric Tokushima in fourth and Sanwa Club just a place behind them. And what this means is that any slip is potentially magnified many times over when it comes to the league standings, as Sanyo discovered when a disappointing 0-0 draw at Alex SC meant they dropped two places. Nangoku Kochi's 8-1 thrashing of Ventana AC has pushed the title holders up to second on goal difference, with Ehime Shimanami third. Still in the lead, however, and now with twelve points out of twelve, are Kagawa prefecture's Kamatamare Sanuki, who put five without reply past Tokushima Vortis Amateur - and who host Nangoku next weekend.

Kanto League Division 1 - Round 4
Division 1 of the Kanto League has an unexpected look to it four matches into the new season, as the previously underachieving Yaita SC head the ranking thanks to a 2-0 win over the far more established Saitama SC. A point behind them are newly-promoted Toshiba Fuchu, 3-0 winners over Toho Titanium - and in third spot now are the Yokohama Sports and Culture Club, conquerors of reignin champions Luminozo Sayama, who are having a truly disastrous season with just a single win to their name so far.

Hokushinetsu Division 2 - Round 4
The Hokushinetsu League Division 2 is proving a particularly tight contest this year and in round 4 on Sunday, all but one of the games ended in a draw. Valiente Toyama were the lucky exceptions, 3-2 winners at Maruoka Phoenix and consequently just one point off the lead. FC Kanazu and TOP Niigata remain undefeated, while Nissei Resin are searching for their first win of the season.

Hokushinetsu League Division 1 - Round 4
One of the most fiercely-contested Regional Leagues is in Hokushinetsu, where Japan Soccer College clung on to top spot in Division One with an injury time equaliser in the eagerly-awaited match-up with Matsumoto Yamaga Club. But there are as many as five reasonably realistic title contenders, as Nagano Elsa have recovered from their early season jitters - evidenced by their 7-0 win at Teihens FC - Zweigen Kanazawa scraped a 1-0 victory over Niigata University of Management and even Fervorosa are still in touch. This is definitely one to keep an eye on.

Chugoku League
Newly-promoted hopefuls FC Central Chugoku destroyed Chugoku League rivals Fagiano Okayama 5-0 in the most sensational result of the Regional League seasons so far on Sunday, at a stroke casting serious doubt over the viability of Fagiano as promotion contenders and candidates for the JFL. At the top of the division two rounds in are nevertheless experienced outfit Hiroshima Fujita SC , although their 1-0 win over the smalltown Iwami SC means that they have played two of the weaker sides in the league thus far. In second place after a 4-1 thrashing of Renofa Yamaguchi are last year's champions Sagawa Kyubin Chugoku - and indeed it is Renofa, established in recent months with the long-term intention of bringing J-League football to their remote prefecture, who now prop up the table after two heavy defeats. Next weekend, however, sees a mouthwatering clash betwen Fujita and FC Central that may go a long way towards deciding the destination of the 2006 title.

Kanto League Division 2 - Round 4
2005 Tokyo Prefectural League champions FC Machida Zelvia are proving the dominant side in this season's Kanto League Division 2, as a 4-1 win at home to Nirasaki Astros continued their 100% record from the start of the season and established a gap of no fewer than five points between themselves and their nearest challangers. Perhaps somewhat surprisingly, these are now Furukawa Electrics Chiba, whose squad was boosted in the close season with a number of signings from newly-promoted JFL side JEF Club; a 4-2 win over Hitachi Tochigi Uva suggests that the new additions are paying dividends. Ome FC are continuing to have a frustrating time and a 0-0 draw with relegated Aries FC means that they have scored only three times in the four fixtures ths far. But bottom of the table now are All Kamisu SC, finding the going much tougher than their fellow newcomers Machida - and their 2-1 defeat by Kanagawa Teachers means they have yet to win a game.

Kansai League - Division 1 Rounds 4 & 5
A busy holiday period in the top division of the Kansai League to report on, with reigning title holders Banditonce Kobe asserting their dominance over their rivals in no uncertain terms. They overcame AS Laranja Kyoto 3-1 in midweek and followed that with a 3-0 win over Sanyo Electric Sumoto, experienced Kansai League striker Kanji Nishimura getting three goals over the two games to bring his season's total so far to five.

There's now a six-point gap between the leaders and FC Mi-o Biwako Kusatsu, Kobe FC 1970 and Sanyo Sumoto. FC Mi-o's unexpected 2-1 defeat to Laranja means that there is no one clear challenger to Banditonce, as all the other teams continue to take points off each other. The exception to this is Takada FC, who after a good win in round 1 have lost four in a row and on Saturday crashed 4-0 to Kyoto Shiko Club to sink to the bottom of the table.

FC Kariya celebrate their 2-1 annihilation of FC Ryukyu

The Golden Week holiday saw a midweek programme of JFL fixtures, with leaders YKK AP finally surrendering their 100% record. Indeed, they had to come from two goals down to claim a point at draw specialists SC Tottori, who've now tied no fewer than six of their eight games so far. Local rivals Alo's Hokuriku now trail YKK only on goal diference, as they won 1-0 at a Sagawa Printing side who have now sunk to the bottom of the league following a disastrous start to the new campaign.

Honda FC move back up to third, a late Yuki Tasaka goal proving enough to inflict a first defeat of the year upon Yokogawa Musashino. Tochigi SC also lost for the first time, 2-1 at Sagawa Kyubin Osaka, while there were also defeats for Rosso Kumamoto and Sagawa Kyubin Tokyo on the fringes of the title race. A 2-1 defeat at FC Kariya continued promoted FC Ryukyu's miserable start to the year, although Miyazaki's Honda Lock picked up their first victory of 2006 by the same scoreline as they came from behind with two goals early in the second half to beat Mitsubishi Mizushima. The game of the round, however, came at Ryutsu Keizai University, who raced into a three-goal lead within half an hour against JEF Club. But the visitors pulled one back just before half-time and two second half goals from Danilo contributed to a remarkable 5-3 win.

Tohoku League Divisions 1, 2(S) & 2(N)
There were games on Sunday in all three divisions of the Tohoku League, covering the northern end of Honshu island. In Division 1, the first two games of the new season saw Fukushima-based FC Primeiro gain a 2-1 win at Nippon Steel Kamaishi, while NEC Tokin held Wiese Shiogama to a goalless draw. The most interesting early season fixture, however, was a rare midweek encounter that saw last season's champions Grulla Morioka squeeze past local rivals Morioka Zebra 2-1.

In Division 2, newly-promoted Vanrarure Hachinohe went down 2-0 at home to northern section favourites FC Akita Cambiare. There were three matches in the southern division, Marisol Matsushima hammering perennial strugglers Kanai Club 4-1, although the sides promoted from the Prefectural Leagues had differing first experiences of Regional League football. Shichigahama SC managed a 3-2 win at Kureha Chemicals, but another Fukushima side - FC Perada - went down 1-0 at Northern Peaks Koriyama.
