Japanese Non-league Football News

From Yamaguchi To The J-League, pt 2
Regular readers may recall an article a couple of months or so ago on JNFN outlining the Yamaguchi Prefectural FA's plans to introduce into their area a club that they hope will act as a vehicle to bring professional football to their far-flung part of Japan.

On the back of habitual Chugoku League strugglers Yamaguchi Teachers, the new team has recently been re-launched under the name Renofa Yamaguchi, which - as will no doubt be immediately obvious to most observers - is a combination of the words "renovation", "fight" and "fine", and was apparently felt to be the best of no fewer than 615 suggestions received from all over Japan.

Renofa's first-team squad has been assembled and club management are currently hard at work putting together a reserve team that will participate at the giddy heights of the Yamaguchi Prefectural League Division 4. The all-important Chugoku League campaign, however, begins on 30th April with one of the toughest fixtures of the year - away at fellow promotion hopefuls Fagiano Okayama.
