Seiji Sonoda has signed......finally.
El Golazo said it would happen and we believed them.....so we posted it in July
The Luther HS product has appeared for both the U-18 squad and the U-15 squad for Japan National Team. Small fella, 166 cm and 6o kg. Pretty small for a Defender so I imagine he's a branch player.
So by my count, that is 6 new prospects
Sonoda DF Luther HS*
Shibasaki MF Kokushikan University*
Shinmura MF Riseisha HS
Inoue FW Hosei University*
El Samni FW Verdy Youth
Fukuda DF Meiji University
(*Denotes National youth team experience)
Practice match versus Meiji University
Thursday saw Verdy go up against the young lads of Meiji in a 3 period 90 minute practice match. Little strange......anyhow they won 1-0 on a score by Hiroyama. The full squad participated with a couple of student trialists (Bruno, Leo, and a youngster from Korea).

Finally, I picked up my ticket for the Verdy match at Yokohama FC.....probably my last Verdy match of the season in person. Possibly the most pathetic match I ever saw was in Yokohama.....what a snooze 0-0 borefest. Let's hope for something better!
