Kansai League Division 1 - Saturday Scores
Kansai League reigning champions Banditonce Kobe kicked off the defence of their title in some style in one of two Division One fixtures to be staged on Saturday. They put five without reply past newly-promoted FC Kyoto 1993, while in the other game AS Laranja Kyoto lost 2-0 to old hands Sanyo Electric Sumoto.

Kyushu League - Saturday Score
A brace from 26-year-old forward Norita Ochiai helped former JFLers Honda Lock to a 6-1 thrashing of Nanakuma Tombies in the only Kyushu League fixture of the day on Saturday. While Nanakuma slip to the bottom of the table on goal difference, for 24 hours at least Lock go joint top with Nippon Steel Oita and 2006 champions V Varen Nagasaki.

JFL - Saturday Scores
It's back up to the top of the JFL table - at least until Sunday - for Sagawa Kyubin SC, following their comfortable enough 2-0 win away at FC Kariya. Once again Sagawa's goal heroes were big striker Sho Gokyu and midfielder Shogo Shimada, the latter of whom notched his fifth goal in four games to make it 2-0 just before half time. Poor old Kariya, meanwhile, have yet to pick up so much as a point from six matches and coach Nariyasu Yasuhara must surely be living on borrowed time.

Indeed, the Aichi club sink to the bottom of the league as a result of their defeat and a first win of 2007 for Sagawa Printing, 1-0 winners over TDK SC thanks to a Shinobu Yusa goal. But continuing their excellent start to the season are Yokogawa Musashino, now third after they defeated an Arte Takasaki side who have now scored only once all year. On target with the score goal of the game for unbeaten Yokogawa was Kosuke Ota - like Sho Gokyu, formerly on the books at J2 outfit Thespa Kusatsu.

JFL News In Brief
... Honda FC played a friendly on Thursday against their neighbours and former JFL outfit Shizuoka Sangyo University. Midfielder Keigo Kawashima scored a hat-trick in a 7-1 win for the 2006 champions... on the same day, Ryutsu Keizai University suffered a distinctly embarrassing 2-1 defeat to their own Ryutsu Keizai University Kashiwa High School...
Shakaijin 2007
Some early news on the subject of this year's All-Japan Shakaijin tournament, which is essentially for non-league teams lower in the pyramid than the JFL, i.e. Regional and Prefectural League sides. The competition will this year be staged between Sat 13 and Wed 17 October and, as was the case in 2006, the winners will be eligible to participate into the end-of-season Regional League Championship Winners' Play-off to decide entry into the JFL itself.

If the winners of the Shakaijin have already gained entry to the Play-offs by virtue of having won their own Regional League, the Shakaijin runners-up will be invited to take their place. Indeed, this is exactly what happened last season, when Shizuoka FC from Tokai ended up in the Play-offs after Kyushu champions V Varen Nagasaki had carried off the Shakaijin title too; but this right will not be extended to the team finishing third in the Shakaijin.
JFL News In Brief
... Keisuke Mori, previously a defender with Sagan Tosu and Alo's Hokuriku, has moved from Mito Hollyhock to become a coach at Ibaraki neighbours Ryutsu Keizai University... after having been let go at the end of last season by Alo's, ex-Tokushima Vortis midfielder has signed for Crystal Palace USA... three other players who reached the end of their contracts with various JFL clubs have found new teams, all in the Kanto League. Midfield player Toshiya Hirata, formerly with SC Tottori, has gone to YSCC; keeper Takeshi Tsutsui has moved from JEF Club to Furukawa Electrics Chiba; and Takayasu Kawai, another midfield player, has signed for Kanagawa Teachers after finishing at Sagawa Kyubin Tokyo...
JFL News In Brief
... Rosso Kumamoto staged a friendly match on Monday and seem to have recovered from their shock JFL defeat to JEF Reserves. They beat Kumamoto Gakuen University 6-0... 20-year-old midfield player Toshitaka Tsurumi has joined Gainare Tottori from Shonan Bellmare until the end of January next year...
Shikoku League
2007's Shikoku League season also got underway on Sunday and it ought to be clarified straightaway to eagle-eyed readers that Alex SC have changed their name during the close season. The Tokushima-based club took on the name of Alex, a local sports shop, as long ago as 1987 but are now called in Japanese 徳島コンプリールSC. The English spelling of this new name is as yet unconfirmed, but until further details emerge they will be known at least on these pages as Tokushima Comprille SC.

Ventana in white battle their way to a win over Shimanami

Whatever the club are called, they nevertheless lost the opening fixture of the new campaign, although a 1-0 defeat at Nangoku Kochi cannot go down as too bad a result. This is particularly true when one remembers that goalscorer Yohei Ueda managed seven in the equivalent fixture last year, which turned out to be a 10-0 drubbing for Alex. Reigning champions Kamatamare Sanuki, however, comfortably overcame last year's whipping boys Sanwa Club to the tune of 4-1, thanks in the main to a hat-trick from striker Hiroshi Kato.

The other two fixtures brought more surprising results. In the Matsuyama prefecture derby match, Ehime Shimanami - who in the last few seasons have emerged as the strongest challengers to the clear superiority of Kamatamare and Nangoku - were defeated 2-1 at home by neighbours Ventana AC. Top of the fledgling table at present, though, are Tokushima Vortis Amateur; two late goals made them clear 4-0 winners over their own local rivals Sanyo Electric Tokushima.

Kyushu League
The Kyushu League hit round 3 on Sunday and last season's winners V Varen Nagasaki would already appear to be the team to beat. They made it twenty goals scored in their three fixtures to date, with a 7-1 thrashing of Fukuoka students Nanakuma Tombies that was watched by a crowd in excess of 3000 people. But V Varen only lead on goal difference from 2006's surprise runners-up Nippon Steel Oita, who maintained their own 100% start by defeating early season shock challengers Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Nagasaki.

Honda Lock have a game in hand and lie third following their 3-1 win over current bottom placed side Kaiho Bank SC, but New Wave Kitakyushu - following on from their sensational loss to Mitsubishi least weekend - continue to live dangerously, almost throwing away a 3-0 half-time lead over Osumi NIFS United. While Kumamoto Teachers had the weekend off from what this year is an eleven-team competition, Volca Kagoshima picked up two points thanks to their penalty shoot-out win following a draw with Okinawa Kariyushi.

Hokushinetsu League Division 2
Sunday saw the opening round, too, to the Hokushinetsu League Division 2 season for 2007. Newly promoted from the Prefectural Leagues are CUPS Niigata - otherwise known as Japan Soccer College reserves - and Ohara School JaSRA, but the two achieved very different results in their debut matches at Regional level. CUPS were 2-0 down inside ten minutes and ended up being beaten 4-0 by Saurcos Fukui, who previously played under the name of FC Kanazu and now have their sights set on bringing J-League football to their own quiet corner of the country. A crowd of 500 turned up to see the start of the journey.

Ohara School, on the other hand, recorded an excellent 2-1 win away at Teihens FC, who twelve months ago were kicking off a season in Division 1. Like the mysteriously-monikered Saurcos, another team to have changed their name are Granscena Niigata - formerly known somewhat misleadingly as TOP Niigata - who overcame Toyama Shinjo Club 2-0. In the other game of the day, FC Antelope Shiojiri managed a 1-0 win over Maruoka Phoenix.

Hokushinetsu League Division 1
Division 1 of the Hokushinetsu League began its 2007 season on Sunday, with Valiente Toyama promoted to life among the big(ger) boys. They went down 3-0 to 2006 champions Japan Soccer College, but other sides suffered worse fates than that. In the Nagano prefecture derby, more than 2000 supporters were at the impressive Alwin facility as Matsumoto Yamaga Club crushed Ueda Gentian 6-0 with a hat-trick from their new ex-Gamba Osaka youth striker Masato Katayama.

It was AC Nagano Parceiro who recorded the best result of the day, however, as they put seven without reply past Niigata University of Management - their own hat-trick hero was former Thespa Kusatsu forward Taiten Sato, who rattled in all his three goals inside the final half an hour. The other game saw Zweigen Kanazawa overcome their Ishikawa rivals Fervorosa in a tense encounter, the only goal coming seven minutes from time courtesy of midfielder Tatsuro Kimura.

JFL - Sunday Scores
It was a remarkable day of action in the JFL on Sunday, with erstwhile leaders Rosso Kumamoto losing their 100% record in dramatic circumstances - and falling to fourth place as a consequence. It was JEF Reserves who dished out Rosso's defeat thanks to a last-minute strike from midfielder Kazuyoshi Nozawa, which in turn helped JEF consolidate their mid-table spot, comfortably above the real strugglers.

Sagawa Kyubin SC might have taken over at the top of the division on Saturday, but the holders of the only remaining 100% record now - five matches into the season - are newcomers FC Gifu. But even they only scraped a 1-0 win against Mitsubishi Mizushima, new signing and former Tokushima Vortis forward Jorginho grabbing the only goal just before the hour mark.

Hot on Gifu's heels are Tochigi SC, who have still conceded only one goal so far this year and today coasted past lowly Arte Takasaki. New midfield player Masamitsu Kobayashi scored a brace in a 4-0 win for Tochigi. Also scoring twice was one of the league's real goal heroes, who had previously to get off the mark in 2007. Honda FC's Kodai Suzuki was the difference between his team and bottom-placed Sagawa Printing.

Yokogawa Musashino and Alo's Hokuriku both kept up their challenge with expected home wins over Gainare Tottori and Sony Sendai, while TDK SC made it two wins in a row thanks to a vital 1-0 defeat of Ryutsu Keizai University. But surely the result of the day came in Toyama, as FC Kariya took a stunning 3-0 lead early in the second half, only to be pegged back by hosts YKK AP. It was star defender Michiharu Otagiri who eventually notched the winner for YKK three minutes from time.

JFL - Saturday Score
It might be for a period of only 24 hours, but as a result of having won the single JFL fixture to be played on Saturday Sagawa Kyubin SC have knocked Rosso Kumamoto off the top of the early-season league table. The Shiga prefecture-based side scored two in each half to overcome an FC Ryukyu side who seem destined to repeat their struggle of 2006, despite the arrival in Okinawa of title-winning former Honda FC coach Hideo Yoshizawa.

JFL News In Brief
There were a couple of JFL-related friendly games staged on Sunday. Leaders Rosso Kumamoto held to a goalless draw their neighbours from J2, Sagan Tosu... Yokogawa Musashino, who had no league fixture over the weekend and instead take on JEF Reserves on Wednesday, beat Kanto League side Hitachi Tochigi 3-0...
JFL - Sunday Scores
FC Gifu remain hot on the heels of early season JFL leaders Rosso Kumamoto, after their 3-1 win at Sony Sendai made it four wins out of four for last year's Tokai League winners. Mitsutoshi Watada, signed during the close season from Kansai League side Banditonce Kobe, scored two in the first half for his new side.

But the league table is unfolding more or less as expected, with Tochigi SC and Sagawa Kyubin SC next in line behind Gifu and Rosso. Tochigi scored twice in the last fifteen minutes to claim three points at Gainare Tottori, while Kento Hori managed a brace of his own for Sagawa at Sagawa Printing - who in turn slip to the bottom of the division with no points from their four outings.

Mitsuru Hasegawa notched up his fifth of the year so far to help YKK AP to a 3-2 win in Okinawa against FC Ryukyu, and YKK's neighbours Alo's Hokuriku are still undefeated after a 0-0 draw at Arte Takasaki. But arguably the scoreline of the day occurred in Okayama, where Mitsubishi Mizushima conceded a Kosuke Iwase goal in the dying seconds to enable TDK SC to gain their first win since promotion.

Kyushu League - Sunday Scores
Sensational goings-on to report from the second round of Kyushu League fixtures in Nagasaki on Sunday. 2006 champions V Varen Nagasaki crushed the 2006 bottom side, Kaiho Bank SC from Okinawa, 12-0 - with hat-tricks from both Ryota Arimitsu and Keisuke Shuto, and four goals from Masaki Iwamoto. Relegated former JFL-ers Honda Lock ran in eight without reply against newcomers Kumamoto Teachers and Nippon Steel Oita strolled to a 4-0 defeat of Nanakuma Tombies.

Humiliated by their loss yesterday at the hands of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Nagasaki, Volca Kagoshima bounced back to thrash Osumi NIFS United 7-0. But the most remarkable result of the year so far has potentially dealt a hammer blow to New Wave Kitakyushu's hopes of taking the title, as Mitsubishi Nagasaki built on their win against Volca to claim a 1-0 victory over New Wave.

Kyushu League - Saturday Scores
Japan's Regional League season got underway on Saturday, with a full programme of games in the Kyushu League. The matches form part of a Kyushu weekend double header that traditionally kicks off the campaign in that part of the country. All the teams gathered together in Nagasaki and there will also be a five games on Sunday - including a first appearance of 2007 for Honda Lock, following their relegation back from the JFL.

Former Avispa Fukuoka man Ryota Arimitsu got 2006 champions V Varen Nagasaki off to a winning start, notching up the only goal of their game against promoted side Kumamoto Teachers. But the big winners of the day were ambitious New Wave Kitakyushu, for whom ex-J-League star Shinji Fujiyoshi was on target in a 5-1 defeat of Fukuoka students Nanakuma Tombies.
