British School Falter to SMP Muhammadiyah in U16A
In U10B, Lycees Francais secured this years’ league title with a convincing 3-0 victory over Kinderfield who were in contention at the start of the day. The French side deserved the championship as the most consistent team all season and have been well supported throughout by a group of enthusiastic parents on the line.
2 goals from Ryan Lemasoa of Rafffles International Christian School was enough to force a draw against BSJ U14B which denied the home team from their first win of this campaign after Ewen Thompson had out them in front mid-way through the last quarter.
In the U13 All Girls competition, Kingdom School defeated ACG thanks to two well taken goals from their star striker Gillian Emery and will finish mid table. And in the Open competition Binus Simprug forced a 1-1 draw with RICS and join ACS in top position with two games in-hand.
There was one Greenfields Cup match on Saturday which saw Bina Bangsa PIK from the B division in U16A/B unexpectedly exit high-flying Insan Cendekia from the A division thanks to a late winner from Alvin Hartono. This sees take Bina Bangsa through to the semi-finals just one step away from a Gala Day cup final appearance. On Sunday morning BSJ hosted the remaining 12 quarter-final matches in what was a feast of good football and closely fought matches with 2 going to sudden death penalty shoot-outs. In U8 A/B BSJ Red and Kinderfield played great football for this age group which ended 2-2 with 2 goals apiece from Guillermo Alvarez for the hosts and Munaajat Subaszah for Kinderfield. BSJ eventually went through 5-4 on penalties in front of an excited crowd. This was the JSFA at its best. Next up ACG ‘A’ downed LIF B 4-0 and joined BSJ Blue in the semis who overcame NIS B also on penalties after a 3-3 draw.
In U10, there were wins for Victory Plus, Al Azhar, SIS United and Cita Buana. And in the Open Girls competition high-flying Deutsche International School also went through on penalties against an unlucky Global Jaya School after drawing 1-1 in regulation time.
The League Committee is now up-dating plans for the Gala Day Cup Final event which will be in a new format this season set for May 23rd. Fuller information to follow. However, all teams who expect to win trophies and medals this season should make a note.

The League is totally non-profit making and raises its operating cash requirements from its major supporting sponsors Coca-Cola and Greenfields Milk, (who support The Greenfields Challenge Cup competition) in which all teams in the various age categories participate plus annual subscription fees.

The Leagues finances are managed exclusively by the British School Jakarta Foundation which acts as the leagues legal entity within which the JSFA is housed and who control all receipts and payments on the League’s behalf.
FOOTBALL FOR LIFE
The ‘Football for Life’ campaign seeks to deliver an outreach programme to children in need in Jakarta. The League has always coordinated and encouraged charity teams to participate in the competitions targeted at children from orphanages and street kids who are organized under the auspices of The British School Community Action Service programme and participating Students..
The Football For Life initiative however is an extension of this important role and seeks to embrace a wider cross section of children in need in Jakarta through financial support and the active participation by JSFA members in assisting worthy child related causes. The ‘FFL’ campaign raises independent funds via various fund raising initiatives to enable this to happen.
Full details are available under the ‘FFL’ banner on this site or by contacting any member of the main committee.
The JSFA main committee is always looking for additional members to participate in what is a positive and exciting experience for all concerned. Should you wish to support the objective of the League, please feel free to contact us at any time.
