Yesterday all of the players (and 3 trial members) of Mito played the Meiji University soccer team for four 30-minute periods. The experienced players took part in the first half and mostly newcomers in the second. The newcomers did much better, but there is a chance the university team was doing the same thing so not much should be read into that.
The quarters went:
1-1 with a goal from midfielder Murata (new Chuo University recruit)
1-1 with a goal from midfielder Otsuka (new Tsukuba University recruit)
2-0 with goals from defender Nakamura (in his 3rd year) and a trial player
2-0 with goals from forward Shiratani (newly on loan from Cerezo Osaka) and a trial player
