Manager Toshihisa Nishi
Really glad. Players were splendid particularly this time. It is big that there was star child (captain). As today's Final Game was partner who won once, carelessness was apt to appear and was hard to do, but way of holding feeling was game while it was difficult as player understood, "do not be off your guard" when it was tense adversely.
In U-12, figure which all grow up later, and plays this role is a pleasure very, but wants at first you to try next hard towards U-15."
