I did not put out the results that I wanted, but learned a lot, we have had a really good experience.
We are proud that I have [been able] to fight the season as captain in this team.

I have had a very good experience and can happy that we achieved the goal of J3 entry this year.
Kanta Takahashi – Signed on for Fujieda in July this year, the 22 year old centre back made just four appearances in his time as a Fujieda player. He made a good start to his career, winning his first game 2-0 against Tochigi Uva. However, two matches later against HOYO Oita he was sent off and only played one match after that.
It was a short time, but thank you everyone – teammates, staff and fans.
Shuta Ishino – Signed in October as a reinforcement for the final games of the season, Ishino failed to make an appearance in his short time at the club. The 23 year old midfielder managed to make the bench once, in the 3-0 loss to MIO Biwako Shiga, but did not make it on to the pitch.
I am really sorry. I thought that I could contribute to the team.
But, I think that it I will probably keep working hard and taking advantage of what I obtained at Fujieda MYFC.
