It’s the mighty Tonan SC Gunma

For followers of the Japanese regional leagues, six of the names of the qualifiers will probably be recognisable as members of the two divisions of the Kanto League. The exception, perhaps, are Tonan SC Gunma, one of the stronger sides in the area's prefectural leagues. Indeed, the club currently lead the Gunma Prefectural League Division 1 with seven wins and two draws in nine games - but although despite being successful enough now, a reputation for consistently rough play actually saw them relegated to Division 2 at one point in the late 80s. The 2006 squad nevertheless includes a large number of players with experience of regional level football and above, such as strikers Hideki Sekine from Mitsubishi Mizushima and 32-year-old Hiroshi Aso, many moons ago on the books at Nagoya Grampus 8. Having already eliminated two higher-ranked teams from the competition, Tonan may be outsiders for the Shakaijin this year, but cannot be completely dismissed.
