Japanese Non-league Football News

Arte Takasaki Go Korean
Arte Takasaki - the new name for the Gunma prefecture side previously known as FC Horikoshi - have made a shock announcement as regards the identity of the distinctly mysterious coach whom they hope will take them a step nearer a place in J2.

Kim Guan Ho, 55, is a former North Korean international who began his senior footballing career in 1977 with the Japan-based Resident Korean Football Group. He played for North Korea in several tournaments over a period of a number of years in the early- to mid-80s, but then his CV evidently goes blank until 2001, when he turned up as coach for Tokyo's Korea University team.

Moreover, Kim will be supported in his new post by Shin Che Bon, most recently coach with FC Korea - a team that plays in the Tokyo Prefectural League - but whose playing career included spells with JEF United and Kawasaki Frontale during the 90s. Chon Pyon Gyu is to take up the post of Arte's physical trainer, having himself moved from Yokohama FC to FC Korea in the last couple of years.
