ACG edge through twice in Greenfields Cup wins
The Greenfields Challenge Cup took center stage on Sunday with the Preliminary Round of the 2015 Cup competition in what was a rain affected weekend. Despite losing close to 20 matches on Saturday due to waterlogged pitches the sun shone on those matches that did go ahead with close to 80 matches played over both days.
Highlight of the round was the exciting double 4-3 victory by ACG in U16C/D over Bina Bangsa KJ, which went to penalties after a 1-1 draw. Only to be emulated by the ACG U8C team in a thrilling 4-3 encounter over ACS played at the ACS venue. Both teams move through to the first round proper due to be played in early February. Other notable winners on Sunday were Dragons B in the U14 A/B competition where two goals from Maranan Giancarlo was just enough to edge out a gallant Victory Plus side by 2 goals to 1 and Binus Simprug in U12D who overcame Tunas Muda from the C Division by 4 goals to 2 thanks to a double strike from Azzuri Daffaro late in the second half.
It was mixed results for some of the Global Jaya sides playing at home on Sunday where the U8E division side went down heavily to Beacon Academy. The U16A squad was unlucky to lose to BSJ Red by a single goal in their league encounter on the previous day following a solo effort from Joe Palmer for the home side in a match that could have gone either way. BSJ move to joint top spot on 6 points alongside last years’ U14 champions SMP Muhammadiyah who had a comfortable win against league newcomers Selemba Batavia FC.
The Girls competition is now in full swing where JIS hosted 6 matches on Saturday. In the Girls Open A Division JGS Dragons went down 2-0 to DIS and JGS Tigers drew 1-1 with Global Jaya School. This leaves BSJ looking strong who still occupy top spot albeit that it’s still early days.
In U10 Girls, JGS PIE looked strong in a comfortable 5-0 victory over TISB from Bogor and in U13 league debutants Kingdom School had an impressive victory over Global Jaya School after last week’s opening defeat to DIS who remain on 2 wins from 2 after downing SD Pondok Pucung on Saturday.
Next week is the leagues’ first 90 game match schedule spread over 2 days and so let’s hope for good weather. With so many venues active it is essential that all teams check and re-check their match fixtures right up to the playing day. There were some divisional reallocations made for some sides after week 2 which the committee have made in the best interest of all schools. Please accept these changes in good spirit and read Bulletin 9 which discusses the reasons why.
Well done to this weeks winners.

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.
