Tokai League Division 1 - Round 4
Shizuoka FC retain the narrowest of leads at the top of the Tokai League Division 1 after round 4 of fixtures on Sunday. Their 3-2 win at Maruyasu Industry means that they continue to hold onto pole position on goal difference from FC Gifu, more comfortable victors over Chukyo University. The bottom two sides played each other on Saturday and Fujieda City Hall picked up their first points of the season with a 1-0 win at ACM Central, but promoted outfit Sagawa Kyubin Chukyo continued their own disappointing start to life in the top flight with a home defeat to Yazaki Valente.

Tohoku League Division 2 (South) - Round 5
With the postponement of the scheduled fixture between Kureha Chemicals and Furukawa Battery, there was only one game played in Division 2 (South) of the Tohoku League this weekend. Marisol Matsushima eased past Shichigahama SC and thus maintained their 100% record in five matches thus far. This puts them nine points clear at the top, although second placed Furukawa already have three games in hand.

Tohoku League Division 2 (North) - Rounds 3 & 4
Some late scorelines from a week ago in Division 2 (North) of the Tohoku League, as well as a further two fixtures from Sunday. Favourites FC Akita Cambiare made it four wins out of four, having seen off the challenge of both TDK Shinwakai and Fuji Club 2003, who had earlier lost their first ever game at Regional level to Tono Club. It seems likely that Mizusawa United Club, in their second year out of the Prefectural leagues, might be Cambiare's nearest rivals, and they knocked five past Vanrarure Hachinohe.

Chugoku League
Just two fixtures to report on from Sunday's action in the Chugoku League - and following on from their defeat of Renofa Yamaguchi, Fagiano Okayama are now two points ahead of Sagawa Kyubin Chugoku and five in front FC Central Chugoku, although Sagawa and FC Central do have one and two games in hand respectively. In the other match, JFE Steel moved off the bottom of the table in fine style, thanks to a 4-0 win over Hitachi Manufacturing Kasado.

Kanto League Division 2 - Round 7
Relegated from Division 1 of the Kanto League at the end of 2005, FC Aries look in danger of making it two demotions in consecutive seasons as they lie at the bottom of Division 2 at the halfway stage of 2006. Hitachi Tochigi Uva were their latest conquerors, leaving Aries two points behind All Kamisu SC, who picked up a 7-0 drubbing at home to leaders FC Machida Zelvia. Machida themselves are five points ahead of Furukawa Electrics Chiba, 3-0 winners over Ome FC, while Nirasaki Astros are fourth.

Kanto League Division 1 - Round 7
Potentially the shock side across all the Regional Leagues in 2006 are Yaita SC in Division 1 of the Kanto League, who midway through the season are seven points clear at the top of the division. Their most recent success was a 1-0 win at nearest challengers YSCC and as a result Toshiba Fuchu moved second following their 2-0 success over Hanno Bruder. Hanno won Division 2 last season and had high hopes of being able to make the step up, but instead are looking as if they may simply be relegated back immediately. Fighting with them to avoid the drop are MSDF Atsugi Marcus and Toho Titanium, who were pitched against each other on Sunday with Atsugi managing the only goal of the game - only their fourth of the season to date.

Hokushinetsu League Division 2 - Round 7
Frontrunners Valiente Toyama and TOP Niigata faced each other on Sunday in round 7 of the Hokushinetsu League Division 2, Valiente emerging as clear leaders following a 4-0 victory. In second place now are Maruoka Phoenix, putting together a decent performance in this their first season at Regional level and 2-0 winners over fellow new boys LionPower Komatsu. At the bottom, Nissei Resin moved away from the foot of the table after their fourth draw of the season against FC Kanazu and it's all going horribly wrong this year for Toyama Shinjo Club, now dead last having lost 1-0 to FC Antelope.

Hokushinetsu League Division 1 - Round 7
It seems as if every week is a vital week in Division 1 of the Hokushinetsu League and Sunday was no exception, as newly-promoted Matsumoto Yamaga Club finally made it to the top of the division thanks to their 6-0 crushing of Niigata University of Management. They were nevertheless aided by Nagano Elsa inflicting a first defeat of 2006 upon Japan Soccer College, which means that Nagano move second, just a point behind their prefectural rivals from Matsumoto. And it's those three teams who will almost certainly contest the title, as Zweigen Kanazawa were held to a 2-2 draw by Fervorosa; while the two most likely relegation candidates, Ueda Gentian and Teihens, shared a 0-0 draw.

JFL Round 12 - Sunday Scores
The JFL round 12 fixtures were completed on Sunday, with Kodai Suzuki's last-minute strike - his tenth of the season - giving Honda FC the edge over Rosso Kumamoto in the day's big match. The win puts Honda into second place behind leaders YKK AP with Tochigi SC moving into third thanks to their 2-1 win at Sagawa Kyubin Tokyo. Elsewhere, last-placed Sagawa Printing gained a valuable point in a draw with Mitsubishi Mizushima to stay in touch behind Ryutsu Keizai University, but SC Tottori pulled off only their second win of the year in stunning style. Their 7-0 scoreline against Honda Lock - including two apiece for Tetsuya Hori and top scorer Hideki Uchiyama - is the biggest victory achieved in the JFL this season and moves the club closer to mid-table.

Hokkaido League - Rounds 3 & 4
The Hokkaido League table is taking shape now, after two rounds of fixtures over the weekend. Title holders Norbritz Hokkaido dropped their first points of the year in a goalless draw in round 4 against Barefoot Hokkaido, which has allowed Blackpecker Hakodate to move to within a point in second place. It was an excellent weekend, too, for Thank FC, who followed a 7-0 thrashing of Tokachi Fairsky on Saturday with a 4-3 win over Sapporo Football Group. After an opening day win, Tokachi are clearly finding it hard to compete at Regional level, but it's the northern-most senior club in Japan - ACSC Asahikawa - who prop up the table after defeats against Barefoot and Toyota Motors Hokkaido left them with no points made it four losses out of four.

JFL - Round 12 Saturday Scores
There were five JFL matches played on Saturday and not many goals scored - but nevertheless, YKK AP managed to extend their lead to seven points thanks to late efforts against Arte Takasaki from marksman Hiroki Kishida and Kohei Onishi. This was Kishida's eleventh of the season, two more than the whole Takasaki team have managed, in what is turning into something of a disastrous year for the Gunma-based J-League hopefuls, who are now struggling to get into the top half of the JFL.

YKK are the form team as well as the current league leaders, but with recent results that are almost as good are Sagawa Kyubin Osaka, who made it five wins in six matches with a 1-0 scoreline against FC Ryukyu to close the gap between themselves and the top teams. Alo's Hokuriku continue to travel in the opposite direction, their 0-0 draw at Sony Sendai meaning that they now have one win and one goal in their last six games. Yokogawa Musashino meanwhile scraped past JEF Club for their first win in five, while relegation play-off-threatened Ryutsu Keizai University managed a home draw with FC Kariya.

Tokai League Division 2 - Round 3
Konica Minolta Toyokawa are maintaining their somewhat surprise early lead in Division 2 of the Tokai League, a 1-0 win on Sunday over FC Kawasaki keeping them ahead on goal difference of Honda Suzuka, who were relegated at the end of last season from Division 1. Morishin's FC gained their first ever win at Regional level against Fuyo Club, who seem to have collapsed after missing out on promotion in 2005. Mind House TC have also failed to build on a promising year and went down to Nagoya Club.

Fujieda City Hall remain rock bottom after their third defeat of the season, while Maruyasu Industry were held for the first time in a goalless draw at Chukyo University.

Marisol Matsushima made it four wins on the run with a remarkable 9-2 trouncing of FC Perada Fukushima in Division 2 (South) of the Tohoku League - but second place Furukawa Battery have two games in hand and have yet to concede a goal after their 3-0 win over Shichigahama SC. Bottom of the division are Kureha Chemicals, who still managed to lose despite knocking in five goals at Kanai Club.

Tohoku League Division 1 - Round 4
The pattern of fixtures in the Tohoku League tends to be rather confusing and so despite their having been, on paper at least, four rounds of matches, only FC Primeiro and Morioka Zebra have in fact played four times so far - indeed, newly promoted Sendai Nakata Club were taking part in their first match at Regional level following promotion from the Prefectural leagues. Not surprisingly they found title challengers Grulla Morioka rather tough to deal with and crashed to a 5-2 defeat. Leaders TDK Akita made it three wins out of three against NEC Tokin and have yet to concede a goal in 270 minutes of football. Fukushima's FC Primeiro moved third as they won at Zebra, while Wiese Shiogama followed two draws with a 5-0 thrashing of bottom-placed Nippon Steel Kamaishi.

Shikoku League - Round 6
A first point of the season for Ventana AC via a 2-2 draw at Tokushima Vortis Amateur was in some senses the key factor of Sunday's fixtures in the Shikoku League, while Alex SC strengthened their grip on a place at Regional level by beating fellow strugglers Sanwa Club. At the top of the table, however, Kamatamare Sanuki are heading for the promotion play-offs for a place in the JFL, as they continued their perfect start to the season with a sixth straight win against Sanyo Electric Tokushima, and Nangoku Kochi moved into second spot after an important win over challengers Ehime Shimanami.

Kyushu League - Round 7 (Sunday)
Nippon Steel Oita made a move to the top of the Kyushu League on Sunday, thanks to a narrow 3-2 win over a fading Volca Kagoshima side, thus leapfrogging them over V Varen Nagasaki. Volca are now level with Okinawa Kariyushi, enjoying something of a renaissance this year after just avoiding relegation last season and 3-0 winners on Sunday over Osumi NIFS United. In the bottom-of-the-table clash, meanwhile, Nanakuma Tombies picked up two points as they beat Kaiho Bank SC in the penalty shoot-out following a 1-1 draw.

Kanto League Division 2 - Round 6
Kanto League Division 2 leaders FC Machida Zelvia crashed to a shock home defeat at home to Ome FC at the weekend. The Saitama-based team twice came from behind, clinching the winner with fifteen minutes remaining in what was in fact their first victory of the campaign so far. Furukawa Electrics Chiba closed the gap at the top to five points thanks to a 4-3 win at All Kamisu SC and now have Nirasaki Astros hot on their heels, 3-2 winners at Aries FC. Kanagawa Teachers also fought out a goalless draw with Hitachi Tochigi Uva.

Kansai League Division 2 - Round 7
The halfway point has now been reached in the Kansai League Division 2 season - and it's all change at the top, with as two consecutive drawn games have cost FC Kyoto BAMB 1993 the leadership. Technonet Osaka replaced them in first position thanks to a good 2-0 win at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Kobe, while BAMB were held at Hermano Osaka. At the bottom, Kobe FC Senior C still have just one poitn and are looking odds-on favourites for relegation after losing 3-2 at Kohga School, while the other two sides in the bottom half - Kihoku Football Group and Riseisha FC - drew 2-2.

Kansai League Division 1 - Round 7
With the Kansai League Division 1 reaching the halfway stage of the 2006 season over the weekend, the 100% record of champions Banditonce Kobe finally came to an end when they had to come from behind to claim a 1-1 draw with local rivals Kobe FC 1970. It's Kobe FC who remain banditonce's nearest challengers, some six points off the pace, but Sanyo Electric Sumoto move up into third following their 7-2 thrashing of Takada FC, while FC Mi-o Biwako Kusatsu went down to Ain Food and dropped two places in the table as result. Kyoto Shiko Club gained a vital win at AS Laranja Kyoto in the other match, to close the gap as they seek to avoid relegation back to Division 2.

Hokkaido League - Round 2
Hokkaido league title holders Norbritz Hokkaido continued their blazing start to 2006 in round 2 on Sunday, with a 4-0 trouncing of newcomers Tokachi Fairsky to add to their 7-0 win of the opening weekend. It was ACSC Asahikawa who fell to the champions a week ago and their own disastrous start to 2006 continued on Sunday when they lost 5-2 at home to Norbritz' nearest challengers, Sapporo Football Group. Elsewhere, Toyota Motors Hokkaido picked up a second consecutive draw, this time with Barefoot Hokkaido, and Thank FC were thumped 4-1 at Blackpecker Hakodate.

Hokushinetsu League Division 2 - Round 6
Things are incredibly close in Division 2 of the Hokushinetsu League after six rounds of matches, with really only Toyama Shinjo Club and the winless Nissei Resin likely to be out of contention as the season nears its half-way point. TOP Niigata moved into first place on goal difference thanks to an easy win over Shinjo, while previous leaders Valiente Toyama still have yet to record their first home victory of the year after a goalless draw with FC Antelope. Promoted sides Maruoka Phoenix and LionPower Komatsu impressively occupy third and fourth spots.

Hokushinetsu League Division 1 - Round 6
The close-fought battle at the top of the Hokushinetsu League Division 1 continued in round 6 on Sunday, as Japan Soccer College scraped a 3-2 win at Fervorosa to keep hold of top spot on goal difference from Matsumoto Yamaga Club, who cruised past struggling local rivals Ueda Gentian. At the foot of the table, Niigata University of Management picked up a potentially vital three points at the expense of Teihens FC, but arguably the most significant result of the day saw Zweigen Kanazawa slip to their third defeat in four games at the hands of 2005 champions Nagano Elsa. This means that the richly-sponsored former Kanazawa SC now lie fully seven points off the pace and despite their wealth can surely be discounted from a place in the end-of-season promotion play-offs for this year.

Chugoku League
With leaders FC Central Chugoku having their Sunday Chugoku League match against Hitachi Manufacturing Kasado postponed, the coast was clear for Sagawa Kyubin Chugoku, Fagiano Okayama and Hiroshima Fujita SC to make some headway in their absence. Sagawa and Fagiano both managed this in some style, picking up good away wins against some of the weaker teams in the region - but disaster struck Fujita, who lost for the second successive match, this time against the side that finished bottom of the table in 2005 but have been reformed with the long-term intention of bringing J-League football to a remote corner of Japan. Renofa Yamaguchi came from a goal down at half-time to win 2-1 and remarkably move level on points with Fujita in mid-table.

21 May 06 - YKK AP and friend(s) before their game with Yokogawa Musashino

YKK AP and friend(s) before their draw with Yokogawa Musashino

JFL leaders YKK AP came perilously close to a shock defeat in Sunday's clash with Yokogawa Musashino, but Hiroki Kishida's ten goal of the season three minutes from time gave the Toyama side an equaliser and kept intact their unbeaten start to 2006. Their nearest challengers now are Rosso Kumamoto, four points behind but with six wins in the last seven and a 100% record in their home fixtures. The former Kyushu Leaguers coasted to a 3-1 win over FC Kariya, with Yutaka Takahashi on target for the seventh time in eight games. Honda FC meanwhile slumped to a shock 3-0 defeat at home to the previously out-of-form Sagawa Kyubin Tokyo to drop back to third and Tochigi SC maintained their challenge thanks to a last-minute Yoshihide Nishikawa winner against Sony Sendai.

Towards the foot of the table, FC Ryukyu are improving fast and their 2-0 win over rock-bottom Sagawa Printing now means that the Okinawans have lost just once in six. Honda Lock gained a vital 3-1 win to leapfrog Ryutsu Keizai University and so move out of the bottom two; and SC Tottori continue to be the league's draw specialists, their failure to hold on to a lead at Mitsubishi Mizushima meaning that they have now tied a remarkable eight out of eleven games.

Kyushu League - Round 7 (Saturday)
Saturday's big Kyushu League match ended in a 2-2 draw between title challengers V Varen Nagasaki and New Wave Kitakyushu, who let slip a two-goal lead. But the resulting penalty shoot-out, as dictated by local rules, was taken by New Wave by 8-7, so they notched up two points to V Varen's one. This means that the top three teams in the division have all played six games, V Varen lying on top with sixteen, Nippon Steel Oita second with fifteen and New Wave in third a further point behind. However, in one of the most exciting of the Regional competitions, Volca Kagoshima cannot be discounted as they have twelve points from only five matches and take part in another vital encounter at Nippon Steel on Sunday.

JFL Scores - Round 11 Saturday Fixtures
Arte Takasaki claimed their first away win of the season in one of the two JFL fixtures to be played on Saturday, former Sendai University player Satoshi Hongai firing in the last-minute winner at Alo's Hokuriku. While this hasn't moved the Gunma-based side up the table, it does mean that Takasaki now lie that bit closer to mid-ranking teams such as Sony Sendai and Yokogawa Musashino - a step in the right direction at least for a club with J-League ambitions after something of a disastrous start to the year. Alo's, meanwhile, now have just one win in five matches and are fading fast after a good opening six weeks to the campaign, despite retaining what is the best defensive record in the division.

Now up into sixth spot are Sagawa Kyubin Osaka, after they beat JEF Club 1-0 to return to winning ways after last weekend's defeat to leaders YKK AP. JEF , on the other hand, have lost three in a row and even more disastrously have yet to pick up a single point in their five home games.

Saturday 20th May: Alo's Hokuriku 0-1 Arte Takasaki

Honda Suzuka and Konica Minolta Toyakawa joined them by beating the two promoted sides, FC Kawasaki and Morishin's FC - who currently prop up the early standings.

Tokai League Division 1 - Round 2
After their stalemate in last week's opening clash between the two, Tokai League Division 1 title hopefuls FC Gifu and Shizuoka FC wasted no time in getting their championship challenge proper underway in round 2 of this season's fixtures. Gifu saw off Fujieda City Hall 4-0, while 2005 winners Shizuoka triumphed 4-1 at Sagawa Kyubin Chukyo. In the meantime it's nevertheless Maruyasu Industry who top the division, after a single goal-victory over Yazaki Valente made it six points out of six.
