Congrat's to the project team - I thought that I had recognised a certain bald headed english man's words in the Hot Springs section?!
I will try to dig out some old photo's to post.
Where's the local 'gaijin' soccer team section?
Note of webmaster:
Alas the 'gaijin' football team (Matsumoto Mongrels) is no more The team was a great social focus for several years, if not one of stunning footballing skills as I'm sure you'll remember? (Warrick used to play goallie at field hockey so did some damage in between the sticks for us!).
After a while, the core of the team moved on. Ciaran now running bouncy castles in Dublin; Howie keeping Las Vegas in business; Chris + kids in California; Kelton gone postal around Japan; Takao settled in UK; Richard cooking in Okinawa; Rob as far as I know still in B.C. The last time I saw Sergio was outside the ground after Brazil beat England in the World Cup '02. Where are the rest of you?
We shouldn't forget the cheerleaders either! Linda, Beth, Simon, Beth, Linda, erm.
There is a priceless collection of still unwashed French shirts in my cupboard - will consider any offers! For those looking for a kick about drop us a line; if you want to support the city's aspiring official team, check out Matsumoto Yamaga at Alwin stadium. The chants are rubbish but the team is a damn sight fitter than we ever were....oh the glory days!
Congratulations on the new website, it looks really cool.
I lived in Matsumoto for three years, looking around this site really makes me want to move back. Its such a great city, close to the mountains, clean air, trendy shops/cafes/bars.
