Sorry for the lack of activity recently. I’ve been dealing with a cold that won’t go away, an achilles injury that is very painful at times and a heavy work schedule. A hat trick that no-one wants!! Let me update on some things happening around the club.
- Defeat at Jubilo
Last weekend Gifu were beaten 3-1 by Hiroshi Nanami’s promotion chasing Iwata side. It could have been oh-so different had Masuyama not hit the bar before Jubilo got their first goal. But, that was the way it went last. FC Gifu played really well at times, but mental errors again cost them. Hiroaki Namba was once again on the scoresheet for Gifu
- Mito calling
Mito Hollyhock visit Nagaragawa tomorrow for a spooky hallowe’en themed game. More on that in the match preview.
- Matsumoto invasion!
Tickets for the away section behind the goal for the November 15th showdown are sold out. Yamaga might be promoted on that day if results so dictate. One thing is for sure, given that it is Gifu’s last home game of the season, there will be an electric atmosphere.
- J1 challenge progress
FC Gifu’s J1 challenge support is going well. As of this week, volunteers & staff had collected 38,004 signatures and raised ¥1,397,521. The push will continue through the end of the year.
