Welcome to Masanori Abe

Hot on the heels of the news of Yuki Fukaya’s injury, FC Gifu announced the signing of young defender Masanori Abe who was at Tokyo Kokusai University last year. 

I don’t know if he was already on the radar, but the injury to Yuki has obviously speeded up the recruitment of Abe. The 22 year old was part of the Kokusai Uni team that won the Saitama prefecture football championship last year (as apparently Tokyo Kokusai Uni is not actually in Tokyo) but were then beaten by JFL side Tochigi Uva. 

Hopefully Abe is given time to settle in and I think he will because even with Fukaya out, Gifu still have Hiroshi Sekita, Tatsuya Arai & Kitani amongst others to man the defence. 

Welcome to Gifu & good luck Masanori!
