Tohoku League Division 2 (South)
FC Perada Fukushima may have scored the biggest win of the day in the final round of the Tohoku League Division 2 (South) season, putting thirteen without reply past poor Kureha, but the ambitious outfit have still been pipped for the title by deadly local rivals Viancone Fukushima. A 5-1 triumph for Viancone over Marysol Matsushima means that they go forward to take part in the promotion play-off with Division 2 (North) winners FC Akita Cambiare to compete for a place in the top flight for next year.

Kureha, on the other hand, seem set to drop down to the Prefectural Leagues after another difficult campaign that has seen them pick up just a single point from their fourteen matches. The likelihood is that they will be automatically relegated, while second bottom Kanai Club may face a play-off in order to retain their own Regional League status. But the two have struggled for some seasons now, whilst promoted sides Soma SC and Nakaniida SC have both demonstrated more of a capability to cope with the level of football.
