Defender Shino, who was on the roster for one year as a reserve player after playing in Brazil, has moved on to regional leage team Grulla Morioka in Iwate prefecture. This team is a likely candidate to join the JFL and then J. League in the near future; perhaps the most likely out of all Tohoku teams.
Shino's shining moment came with a fine goal in Mito's win over FC Tokyo in an exhibition match. He never made it into a league or cup game.
