Vagabonds vs Lions in Yokohama

Vagabonds unable to hold on for a point after a seesaw battle with Lions FC in Yokohama

BFC Vagabonds 3 Lions FC 4 YC&AC, Saturday 3rd October 2015

Looking to continue their fine run of form after last week’s victory, the Vags found themselves a goal down within the opening minutes of the match. Some nerves and miscommunication between the Vags players allowed for a deflected ball to bounce out to a Lions striker just outside the box. He made no mistake and hit a first time volley with the outside of his foot which curled into the top corner....

Saturday’s game was billed to be the swansong for one of the Vag’s longest serving players – James Musgrove a.k.a. Muzzy who was leaving Japan for the UK the next day. Perhaps it is a taste of things to come but any chances of turning out for the Vags were scuppered when the job of cleaning the apartment before moving out trumped any thoughts of goal-scoring glory.

Swiss Kickstarter the new season

It’s as you were for the Summer 7s. Both Swiss Kickers and British Embassy regained their Cup and Plate trophies for another season.

The worry with every Summer 7s is the weather. We have been lucky over the last few years as the clouds have come to our rescue but on Sunday the clouds were few and far between for the first half of the day. All 150 plus players arrived on time and slapped on the Suntan lotion and attempted to find shade where they could.

King George FC 4 Dutch 2 YC&AC, Sunday 5th April 2015

After a winless four months, KGFC produced a commanding performance to stun relegation rivals Dutch FC 4–2 at the YCAC ground.

Two goals from team pinup Keigo Kameya, and a goal apiece from Sean Carroll and the returning Jo Ninomiya were enough to earn the three points for the Kings of Saitama.

Buoyed by the return of Ninomiya and the addition of more of the Bates bloodline in form of...

YC&AC feel the burn as Swiss Kick(ers) their way to 7s glory

FJ Competitons Summer Soccer 7s YC&AC Sunday 24th August 2014

After a short break throughout the Summer, FJ Competitions returned with a fantastic day of 7s action. Sitting in my office and going through the results the tournament looks like it mirrored the FIFA World Cup. Not in terms of dodgy referees, disappearing spray and close ups of the finest looking women the world has to offer, But results wise. Group matches with plenty of goals, knockout rounds...
