Japanese Non-league Football News

Kyushu League
The Kyushu League 2007 schedule is already up to round 5 and last season’s top two sides – V Varen Nagasaki and Nippon Steel Oita – have yet to drop a point between them as they make a bid for the second year running to move up to the JFL. But V Varen’s goal difference is already far superior and they knocked in another four without reply in their match against struggling Osumi NIFS United. Nippon Steel meanwhile rather scraped to a 2-1 win over Okinawa Kariyushi.

Honda Lock have a game in hand back in third place but easily saw off Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Nagasaki – whose days of early season shock success seem to be well and truly behind them. And playing catch-up in fourth are New Wave Kitakyushu, 3-0 winners this time over an underachieving Volca Kagoshima side. Down at the bottom of the table, however, Kumamoto Teachers managed an excellent 2-1 win at Nanakuma Tombies to move away from the relegation zone.
