Fervorosa Snap Up Marinos Man
Hokushinetsu League Division 1 side Fervorosa Ishikawa Hakusan have announced their first major signing in preparation for 2007. Yutaro Abe is a 22-year-old forward who moves to the club from Yokohama F Marinos, although he has spent the last two seasons on loan at J2 outfit Montedio Yamagata.

Abe made his J-League debut for Marinos at the age of just eighteen and his footballing CV also boasts international appearances for Japan at every age group from U15 to U20. Seeking more playing time than a fringe player at one of the country's biggest clubs could expect, he joined Yamagata and in 2005 played 27 league games, scoring five goals. In the season just finished, however, Abe made only seven appearances, squeezed out by the arrival of star Brazilian Leandro.

Fervorosa will be hoping that his arrival in Ishikawa will serve to make the team more able to cope with life in the fiercely competitive Hokushinetsu League. 2006 saw them end up fifth out of eight teams, well off the pace of the likes of Matsumoto Yamaga Club and title winners Japan Soccer College.
