Tokai League Division 2
With no fixture for either Nagoya Club or Toyota Football Group over the weekend, their rivals for the second promotion spot from Division 2 of the Tokai League took full advantage. Konica Minolta Toyokawa may have kept going their unbeaten record at the top of the table with a comfortable 5-1 at Morishin's FC, but behind them now are Mind House Yokkiachi, 3-0 winners over the Shizuoka teachers' team, Fuyo Club - and MIE Rampole are third after they inflicted upon bottom team FC Kawasaki a second consecutive 5-0 home defeat.

Tohoku League Division 2 (South)
A single goal in the second half from striker Rui Tokisaki was all that Tohoku League Division 2 (South) leaders FC Perada Fukushima needed to beat neighbours Soma SC in the division's only fixture at the weekend. This puts Perada three points clear of second place Viancone Fukushima - who have two crucial games in hand.

Kyushu League
It was all change at the top of the Kyushu League on Sunday, with all three championship contenders moving places. Former leaders New Wave Kitakyushu were without a fixture and dropped down to third, their place at the top taken by Honda Lock, who beat Osumi NIFS United 5-0. Perhaps in the trickiest position of all are V Varen Nagasaki, in second after a 4-1 defeat of Okinawa Kariyushi - but 2006 title winners V Varen have only four games left to play, whereas Lock and New Wave have five.

Staying fourth after a comfortable win over Volca Kagoshima are Nippon Steel Oita, but Nanakuma Tombies remain rooted to the foot of the division after they lost 3-1 at home to the Okinawans of Kaiho Bank SC. The Tombies' chief rivals for the wooden spoon are still Kumamoto Teachers, whose 1-0 defeat at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Nagasaki was their ninth loss in a row.

Kanto League Division 2
Club Dragons are MSDF Atsugi Marcus are now assured of promotion from Division 2 of the Kanto League following Sunday's games. The Dragons, who were playing Ibaraki Prefectural League football just a year ago, beat Kanagawa Teachers 5-0 to remain on top of the table, while the sailors from Atsugi overcame relegation-threatened Yamanashi outfit Nirasaki Astros. This means that there is an eight-point gap between MSDF in second and third-placed Furukawa Electrics Chiba, 3-1 winners over Hanno Bruder. Ome FC really could have done with a win in their battle to avoid the drop, but only managed to draw 2-2 at Yonoshukonkai.

Kanto League Division 1
Kanto League Division 1 champions FC Machida Zelvia continued to saunter through the season with a 2-0 victory over Toho Titanium that enabled the Tokyo team to move thirteen points clear of Hitachi Tochigi Uva. But Uva slumped to a 4-3 home defeat to Toshiba Fuchu, who are participating in a relegation battle that is hotting up nicely with just two fixtures remaining. Bottom side Yaita SC also pulled off a 4-3 win over Luminozo Sayama to keep themselves in with a chance of staying up, while a 3-1 defeat of Saitama SC by YSCC meant that all three teams at the foot of the table won their games.

Hokkaido League
Starting at the bottom of the Hokkaido League, Sapporo FC moved off the foot of the table as they managed their second win of the season at Blackpecker Hakodate. They overtake a Hokushukai side having significant problems becoming acclimatised to Regional League football - and who lost 6-1 at runaway leaders Norbritz Hokkaido. Making a decent job of staying in touch with Norbritz are Sapporo Winds, who managed their fifth win in a row by putting five past Tokachifairsky Genesis. But in a distant third are Barefoot Hokkaido, 2-0 winners over mid-table rivals Toyota Motors Hokkaido.

JFL Sunday Scores
After Rosso Kumamoto's defeat on Saturday, Sagawa Kyubin SC pounced on the opportunity to extend their lead at the top of the JFL to seven points on Sunday. They cruised to a 4-1 win over bottom side Arte Takasaki, forward Kento Hori netting twice for the Shiga prefecture-based team, who are now unbeaten in their last seven matches. Moving back into the top four - and on target for a promotion spot - are FC Gifu, thanks to a goalless draw at improving Sagawa Printing.

But it's getting congested below the front three teams and one of Gifu's challengers are JEF Reserves. They recovered from two recent heavy defeats by beating TDK SC, despite going behind in the opening minute to a Go Togashi effort. And down in Okinawa, FC Ryukyu's defensive tribulations continued as they conceded three to Ryutsu Keizai University but managed a draw that moves them level with FC Kariya in the table.

JFL News In Brief
... FC Ryukyu have signed two more players in their bid to move away from the foot of the JFL table. Ex-Rosso Kumamoto midfielder Yasuhiro Kamata moves to Okinawa from V Varen Nagasaki, while defender Takuji Miyoshi - formerly with Alo's Hokuriku - joins from Hokushinetsu League team Valiente Toyama... Thespa Kusatsu midfielder Yoshiki Nagai has moved to Sagawa Printing on loan until the end of January...
JFL Saturday Scores
Rosso Kumamoto's hopes of winning the JFL title this season were dealt a hammer blow on Saturday, when their trip to Toyama ended in a 2-1 defeat to Alo's Hokuriku. Leading scorer Yutaka Takahashi breached the tough Alo's defence within the opening minute, but midfielder Keisuke Kimoto equalised shortly afterwards and then scored again six minutes from time to leave Rosso four points behind leaders Sagawa Kyubin SC, having played a game more. And in a good day for Toyama football, Alo's' neighbours YKK AP narrowed the gap on Rosso by beating Sony Sendai via a last-minute own goal.

Lower down the table, Tochigi SC's season has suddenly sprung back into life after the disastrous run had seen the J-League hopefuls slump into the lower half of the table. But last week's defeat of FC Gifu has given them hope that they can still snatch a top-four finish and a place in J2 and this weekend a Kenichiro Meta goal ten minutes before the end was enough to claim three more vital points at the expense of one of their rivals, Yokogawa Musashino. Honda FC won 1-0 at Gainare Tottori in the evening game, while FC Kariya beat Mitsubishi Mizushima 1-0 to put an end to their recent poor run of results.

Emperor's Cup
The JFA have confirmed the draw for the opening three rounds of the Emperor's Cup proper for 2007. As usual, each prefecture will be represented by just one team from below the ranks of the J-League itself, with the preliminary tournaments to decide on who those teams will be taking place across Japan at the moment. So the draw as it stands involves nothing more than deciding which prefectures' teams will play against each other, prior to the J2 sides becoming involved at the Third Round stage. JNFN will aim to fill in the gaps as regards the identities of all the prefectural representatives, but the basics of the draw are as follows:

Tokai League Division 1
Shizuoka FC remain at the top of the Tokai League Division 1 after the weekend's games, when they kept going their 100% record since the start of the season with a 1-0 win at Chukyo University. Two points behind and comfortable in second place are neighbours Yazaki Valente, 2-0 winners over another Shizuoka-based side, Fujieda City Hall. Nevertheless, it's still Fujieda who lie third and at the head of a bunch of clubs with comparable records for the year to date. Rooted to the foot of the table are still Kasugai Club, 2-1 losers to Maruyasu Industries, while Sagawa Kyubin Chukyo helped their battle against relegation by beating Honda Suzuka.

Tokai League Division 2
Division 2 of the Tokai League is shaping up to be one of the most interesting of the Regional Leagues this year. Leaders Konica Minolta Toyokawa lost for the first time in 2007 to newcomers MIE Rampole and are four points clear of the chasing pack, but there are as many as half a dozen teams in contention for the second automatic promotion spot. Nagoya Club thrashed relegation favourites FC Kawasaki and are second on goal difference from Mind House Yokkaichi, 1-0 winners at form team Toyota Football Group. Even Morishin's FC and Fuyo Club are not out of it, although their 2-2 draw helps neither of them to move up the table - or to avoid relegation.

Kanto League Division 2
Taking the lead in an exciting race for the Kanto League Division 2 title are Ryutsu Keizai University reserves side Club Dragons, 3-0 winners at pre-season favourites Furukawa Electrics Chiba, who are themselves experiencing rather a disappointing campaign. Dropping back to second place behind the Dragons are MSDF Atsugi Marcus following a draw at lowly Ome FC. But making a challenge for a promotion place with just three games to go are Hanno Bruder, who go third by beating Kanagawa Teachers. Nirasaki Astros are still last and running out of time if they want to avoid relegation to the distinctly unglamorous surroundings of the Yamanashi Prefectural League, although they did claim a point in a 2-2 draw at Yonoshukonkai.

Kanto League Division 1
After a month's break, the Kanto League Division 1 season recommenced over the weekend - and FC Machida Zelvia were able to confirm what local fans have been predicting since the beginning of the season, namely that they are indeed Kanto League champions for 2007. A 5-0 win at relegation-threatened Yaita SC gave the title to Machida, whose rise from the Tokyo Prefectural League of 2005 has been rapid indeed. With three games remaining, they are ten points clear of Hitachi Tochigi Uva, 1-0 winners over Saitama SC - although Uva's nearest challengers are a Toho Titanium side who had a mixed start to the year, but are now unbeaten in five games following a 2-0 defeat of Luminozo Sayama. Last year's champions YSCC meanwhile did their fight against relegation the world of good by beating rivals Toshiba Fuchu 1-0.

Kansai League Division 2
Kansai League Division 2 winners Hannan University rounded off their first-ever Regional League season in style, crushing Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Kobe 8-1 in the last game of the year on Sunday. Going up to Division 1 alongside them will be Takada FC, who have spent just a single season in the lower tier and confirmed their return to the top flight by beating Kyoto Shiko Club. Definitely relegated are Kihoku Football Group, although they avoided the humiliation of losing every single match of the season in quite astonishing style, picking up their solitary point in a 5-5 draw at Riseisha Club. In the relegation play-off position are Hermano Osaka, 3-1 losers at third place Kohga School.

Kansai League Division 1
2006 champions Banditonce Kobe rounded off the 2007 season in style, confirming the fact that they retained the title with a 2-0 win on the final day of the campaign at FC Mi-o Biwako Kusatsu. FC Mi-o have provided Banditonce with their closest challenge but have finished off the year a disappointing seven points off the pace, although in all probability both teams will compete in the Regional League Championship Winners' Play-off for a place in the JFL.

FC Glaspo Kashiwara's relegation has been a certainty for some time and the Osaka side concluded what has been a very difficult year by losing 4-3 at home to the side who will join them in Division 2 in 2008, Kobe FC 1970. Sanyo Electric Sumoto avoided the drop with a 1-0 win over Ain Food, while mid-table local rivals FC Kyoto 1993 and AS Laranja Kyoto ended the season with a low-key goalless draw.

JFL Sunday Scores
After conceding twelve goals in their last two JFL matches, supporters of FC Ryukyu could have been forgiven for fearing the worst ahead of Sunday's game, even though their opponents were out-of-form Mitsubishi Mizushima. And sure enough, the former Chugoku Leaguers added a further three goals to Ryukyu's Goals Against column - but remarkably, scores from defender Teruo Hamada and new signing Tatsuya Kamohara in the last three minutes gave the struggling Okinawans a vital confidence-boosting 4-3 victory. The three points enabled them to leapfrog FC Kariya out of the bottom two, as Kariya's 5-2 thrashing at TDK SC was their fifth consecutive defeat.

Also moving up the table are Sagawa Printing thanks to an impressive 3-0 win at Ryutsu Keizai University that included two goals for ex-Ehime FC striker Hirokazu Otsubo. Bottom side Arte Takasaki almost inevitably sank to a 2-1 defeat at YKK AP, who now are in third place, in front of both Yokogawa Musashino and FC Gifu. Takasaki meanwhile have lost sixteen of their last seventeen games. But at the other end of the division, Sagawa Kyubin SC are four points clear of Rosso Kumamoto after winning 2-0 against Gainare Tottori.

JFL Saturday Scores
Championship challengers Rosso Kumamoto let slip two potentially vital points in the battle for the JFL crown on Saturday. Having taken the lead in the opening seconds through experienced former Sagawa Kyubin Tokyo midfielder Masahiko Kumagai, the Kyushu side conceded a shock last-minute Junpei Murata goal in their match at home to lowly Sony Sendai. The 1-1 draw means that Rosso fail to overtake Sagawa Kyubin SC, who play tomorrow - and in what is looking like a two-horse race, that is an error that may well not go unpunished.

Indeed, the gap between the front pair and the rest now stands at ten points, with Yokogawa Musashino now in third after their 1-0 win over Alo's Hokuriku and an increasingly sluggish-looking FC Gifu dropping down to fourth. Gifu, who have just a single goal to show for their last four matches, lost 2-0 at home to the even more wildly out-of-form Tochigi SC, previously without a victory since the beginning of May. Tochigi now stand ninth and are just close enough to the top four position they need to gain promotion to the J-League - although one of the teams in their way are improving Honda FC, 4-2 winners over JEF Reserves.

FC Ganju Iwate
Defender Ryosuke Adachi, recently departed from JEF Reserves, has signed for ambitious Iwate Prefectural League Division 4 side FC Ganju Iwate. FC Ganju, formed after their failure of Grulla Morioka to reach the JFL at the end of 2005, have only just started competing in league football and Adachi joins a squad packed with Regional League, JFL and even J-League experience. The two Iwate League matches that the club have played so far this season have ended in 12-0 and 17-0 wins, against Iwate Teachers and the Bank of Iwate respectively. Goalscorers have included Yuuki Okamoto, formerly with Mito Hollyhock, and Brazilian ex-FC Ryukyu defender Cristiano Akio Ito.
