Kyushu League Prefectural Promotion Play-offs
The Kyushu League Prefectural Promotion Play-offs have also been taking place over this weekend, to decide the final places in the Kyu League for 2007. At the end of the eight-team knock-out competition, Kumamoto Teachers make a return to the league, having most recently appeared at Regional level in 2002.

They were in fact founder members back in 1973, winning the title on one occasion four years later - which in turn led to the club participating in the first ever Regional League Championship Winners' Play-off, although a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Dainichi Nippon Cables put paid at the First Round stage to their hopes of promotion.

Runners-up in Sunday's final were Miyazaki prefecture's Nobeoka City SC. They take on Kaiho Bank SC next week in the final Play-off - alongside the equivalent fixture in Kansai, the last piece of action of the 2006 season.

Sat 13 Jan: Kyushu Sogo Sports College 1-2 Kumamoto Teachers
Sat 13 Jan: Kawasoe Club 8-3 NST Dreams
Sat 13 Jan: Mitsubishi Electric Nagasaki 0-4 Nobeoka City SC

Sun 14 Jan: Nobeoka City SC 5-3 Miyake Club

Sun 14 Jan: Kumamoto Teachers 5-2 Nobeoka City SC

Kaiho Bank SC subsequently retained their place in the Kyushu League for 2007 with a narrow win over Nobeoka in the final Promotion / Relegation Play-off.

Danilo Goes To Kanazawa
Hokushinetsu League Division 1 side Zweigen Kanazawa are continuing the significant task of repopulating their first team squad after the disaster of a fourth place finish in 2006. The main signing announced to date is that of 24-year-old Brazilian striker Danilo, who moves to Ishikawa from JFL side JEF Club, having previously played at Gunma FC Horikoshi.
New Coach For Tottori
Kei Kinoshita has moved on after having failed as coach to life SC Tottori above eleventh place in the 2006 JFL table. His replacement is 62-year-old Yuji Mizuguchi, whose coaching experience stretches back to the old Japan Soccer League days of Yanmar Diesel and Matsushita - now better known as Cerezo Osaka and Gamba Osaka. Most recently, he has been in charge of the football team at Kobe International University, but for 2007 sees a marked step up in responsibility following Tottori's application to become associate members of the J-League.

Four Make Associate Membership Application
Despite Rosso Kumamoto's failure to achieve promotion out of the JFL at the end of 2006, four more clubs have applied for associate membership of the J-League as a vital part of their progress towards professional status. Tochigi SC, SC Tottori, FC Gifu and Tohoku Leaguers FC Perada Fukushima have all made their applications to the J-League, although for Tochigi this amounts to the second time that they have done so. The target date for the three JFL sides to gain entry into J2 is 2008, i.e. they are all hoping to finish in the top two of the JFL, while Perada can take things easy until 2011.
Zweigen Deal
21-year-old defender Tsuneyuki Ueda has moved from Consadole Sapporo to Hokushinetsu League team Zweigen Kanazawa on loan until the end of January next year. Ueda spent 2006 loaned out to Albirex Singapore.
Junkers Ride The Dream
What with Northern Peaks Koriyama having recently announced their intention to regroup as Biancone Fukushima as part of the Tohoku League Division 2 (South) team's attempts to provide Fukushima prefecture with a J-League team, news emerges that they now have a more immediate rival that had previously been the case. Fukushima Junkers have for some years been battling through the divisions of the Prefectural League with a long-term eye on turning professional - but having finally reached Division 1, they have also confirmed that the club is to merge management with Biancone's fellow Regional League members FC Perada Fukushima.

Despite now being a single organisational entity, the separate names will be retained: as of the 2007 season, FC Perada will continue to compete in the Tohoku League Division 2 (South) but now have the definite target of a J2 place. Junkers meanwhile will exist as a reserve team in the Prefectural League. The scene is set for one of Japanese football's smaller-scale, but nevertheless still intriguing, battles.
