Fagiano Gain Associate Membership
Chugoku League team Fagiano Okayama have become the first Regional League club to be awarded associate membership status of the J-League. Along with JFL sides Rosso Kumamoto, FC Gifu, Tochigi SC and Gainare Tottori, this clears the way for the Pheasants to gain promotion to J2, should they finish sufficiently high in the JFL.

The Chugoku League for this season has incorporated an end-of-year play-off system that means that Fagiano cannot yet be confirmed as regional champions, although they have won all thirteen of their league matches played to date. Assuming that they do indeed take the title, they will proceed to the Regional League Championship Winners' Play-off tournament, by which teams gain promotion to the JFL - for which they will be hot favourites, having narrowly missed out last year.
JFL Sunday Scores
While JFL leaders Sagawa Kyubin SC had their Sunday match against Tochigi SC postponed due to bad weather, second place side Rosso Kumamoto had to make do with a draw at fellow promotional hopefuls FC Gifu. Ex-Arte Takasaki midfielder Kiyoshi Saito gave Rosso the lead on 20 minutes only for the home side's Hiromi Kojima to level things up just before half time.

And Gifu drop back to fourth place, overtaken by a YKK AP side who strolled to a 5-1 win over Yokogawa Musashino. Star defender Yuki Hamano was twice on target for YKK, but Yokogawa have picked up just a single point from their last four games and are slipping down the table. Also experiencing rather uncertain form at present are TDK SC and their game with Sony Sendai highlighted their current jittery form.

Forward Go Togashi put the Akita-based side two up with just fifteen minutes remaining, but Sony quickly pulled themselves back into the match and goals in the dying seconds from Yosuke Nishi and key forward Junpei Murata clinched a remarkable comeback victory. This kept TDK in the bottom six, where FC Kariya managed a rare win thanks to another last-minute goal from Tomohiro Ito at fellow strugglers FC Ryukyu.

Kyushu League
V Varen Nagasaki's hopes of winning the Kyushu League title for the second year running - and indeed of going on to fight for a place in the JFL next year - were dealt a hammer blow on Sunday, as a fifteenth-minute goal from experienced former J-Leaguer Shinji Fujiyoshi gave New Wave Kitakyushu a potentially crucial win. More than 2500 fans attended the game in the provincial town of Shimabara, but V Varen now lie four points behind leaders Honda Lock and have only two more games to play, one fewer than either of their rivals.

Lock themselves claimed their sixteenth win of the season at home to Volca Kagoshima, a match that the championship favourites led 2-0 after barely ten minutes. And there were only two other games staged on Sunday, as Osumi NIFS United's fixture with Kaiho Bank SC was postponed due to the threat of a typhoon. Elsewhere, however, Okinawa Kariyushi crushed Kumamoto Teachers, while Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Nagasaki moved closer to the top five as they came from behind to see off bottom side Nanakuma Tombies.

JFL Sunday Scores
Atsushi Katagiri was the hero for JFL promotion hopefuls FC Gifu on Sunday, his 57th-minute goal proving the matchwinner at FC Ryukyu. And as a consequence of their victory in Okinawa, Gifu return to the top three ahead of rivals YKK AP and Alo's Hokuriku and are therefore right back in contention for a place in J2 next season. In mid-table, the recent stuttering form of JEF Reserves continued with a goalless draw against Ryutsu Keizai University, while Mitsubishi Mizushima and TDK SC moved further away from the bottom with wins at Gainare Tottori and Arte Takasaki respectively.

JFL Saturday Scores
It was a day of last-minute goals for top strikers in the JFL on Saturday. Leaders Sagawa Kyubin SC were able to keep going their unbeaten run - which now stands at nine matches - thanks to Sho Gokyu's equaliser at Alo's Hokuriku, where the home side took the lead twice only to be pegged back on both occasions. In Tokyo, the league's leading scorer Yutaka Takahashi was inevitably on target for Rosso Kumamoto at Yokogawa Musashino, where the Kyushu side grabbed a vital 3-2 victory that enabled them to close the gap on Sagawa to five points.

After the shock of managing only a draw last week at home to bottom side Arte Takasaki, the wheels of Honda FC's mid-season revival well and truly came off as they lost to a solitary Junpei Murata goal midway through the first half at Sony Sendai - Sony's own first win in seven fixtures. But Sagawa Printing's recent good form has seen them move well up the table and they continued the upward trajectory by beating FC Kariya 3-0, experienced former Ehime FC midfielder Kazuhisa Hamaoka getting two of the goals.

Kyushu League
The Kyushu League continues to wind up to a thrilling climax, as all three title contenders continued their run of good form with wins on Sunday. Current leaders and probable favourites Honda Lock conceded three at Okinawa Kariyushi but nevertheless knocked in six at the other end, while V Varen Nagasaki remain hot on their heels thanks to a 4-1 defeat of Volca Kagoshima. And not yet out of it in third are still New Wave Kitakyushu, 3-2 winners over Nippon Steel Oita. In the weekend's other two fixtures, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Nagasaki moved up one place in mid-table by beating Kaiho Bank SC, but Kumamoto Teachers are still in trouble near the bottom of the standings following their loss at home to Osumi NIFS United.

Club Dragons are almost sure of winning Division 2 of the Kanto League at the first attempt, as with only one match still to play they are three points ahead of MSDF Atsugi Marcus with a far superior goal difference. The weekend's games saw the Dragons extend their lead, beating Ome FC 3-2 while Atsugi could only draw at home to Furukawa Electrics Chiba.

Kanto League Division 1
Hitachi Tochigi Uva made sure of an impressive second place finish in Division 1 of the Kanto League this season, as they crushed Toho Titanium 4-0 in the penultimate round of the season's fixtures on Sunday. This places last year's Division 2 runners-up four points ahead of Luminozo Sayama, who have had an inconsistent year but beat Saitama SC 3-2. Champions FC Machida Zelvia remain on course to go through the whole year unbeaten after their win at Toshiba Fuchu - and the only key issue remaining to be decided is whether Fuchu or Saitama SC will fill the second relegation spot. 2006 champions YSCC climbed out of danger with a 4-1 defeat of bottom place Yaita SC.

The rest of Sunday's action was all mid-table and lower, with midfielder Yuta Mikado's goal enough to seal all three points for Ryutsu Keizai University against struggling FC Kariya, Mitsubishi Mizushima bringing to an end a run of five consecutive defeats with a 2-1 win over JEF Reserves and Gainare Tottori picking up a rare away victory at TDK SC.

JFL Saturday Scores
Sagawa Kyubin SC continued what is looking like a relentless march to the JFL title on Saturday, a comfortable 3-0 win over Sony Sendai making it maximum points from the team's last six matches. The result was barely in doubt after Sho Gokyu netted his twentieth goal of the season as early as the second minute, and it keeps Sagawa seven points in front of their nearest challengers, Rosso Kumamoto. Nevertheless, Rosso managed what was their first victory in three games - and so doing brought to an end Tochigi SC's recent mini-revival, 21-year-old former Shonan Bellmare midfielder Kosuke Yoshii scoring the only goal of the game in the 83rd minute. The other game to be staged on Saturday without doubt provided the shock of the round so far, as bottom side Arte Takasaki recovered from conceding an early goal to come away from Honda FC with a 2-2 draw - the Gunma side's first point in seven games.

JFL News In Brief
Former Ehime FC star striker Toshiro Tomochika - who played for the club in J2 as well as the JFL - was elected to the Upper House of the Japanese parliament in Sunday's elections. Tomochika, 32 and an ex-student at the prestigious Waseda University, was backed by the Social Democrats, the Democratic Party of Japan and the People's New Party against the ruling Liberal Democrats. The Yomiuri Shimbun reports that, "Although Tomochika did not have a strong political base, he won the election by gaining wide support through campaigning against growing regional disparity."
