Ghandi Memorial takes U10E title in 3-2 Thriller
Ghandi Memorial edged out The Australian International School from the U10E Winners trophy on Saturday following a last gasp victory when Suresh Chidambaram slotted home from short range to take all 3 points. Alex Bend had struck twice for mid table BSJ White which looked to be enough to stop Ghandi from taking all 3 points. This is what was needed to stop AIS, who also remain unbeaten in their 7 league games from lifting the Coca-Cola Trophy. However, the Aussi’s were going to be disappointed and Suresh became the hero of the day when taking his team to a Gala Day celebration. In U10F JIKS emphatic win over BSJ Yellow leave them both mid-table as all conquering PSKD Mandiri take the trophy with maximum points. And in U10C, Bogor Raya’s 5-1 win over Tunas Muda including 2 goals each for Sutanto and Tjandra was enough to leap-frog them over Sekolah Victory Plus into second place and a runners-up medal for the team.
In U12E, RICS victory over BSJ White by 4-0 leaves them with a chance of runners-up medals at the expense of AIS. However, to achieve this they are going to have to take a point from table-topping and league champions Global Sevilla when they meet them after the Easter break on April 18th. Sevilla are on 5 wins from 5 and this may be a tough ask. In U12C, BSJ Blue did just enough to take the points in their 2-1 encounter with Tunas Muda with goals from Aaron Hall and George Nathan and second spot in the table on 18 points alongside the winners Mentari International School. They lost out on the head to head rule when they went down to Mantari 1-0 in early February.
In U8D, Global Sevilla and BSJ White fought-out a thrilling 3-3 draw and kept Sevilla in second place on 14 points alongside Netherlands International School. 2 goals from Mustafa cancelled out 2 goals from Sean Posey for the home side who finished their 2015 league campaign with a 4-2-2 season and in 4th place.
The league now takes a 2 week break and will be completing the league and cup program before final Gala Day plans concluded.

inter-schools Association Football in the Jakarta area to children of all ages. The JSFA (Jakarta Schools Football Association) or ‘Coca-Cola’ League as it has become known due to the continued involvement of Coca-Cola as lead sponsor from that time, has grown from 6 schools and 12 teams in 1995 to what it is today as perhaps one of the largest schools football competitions in the world with 226 teams from 65 schools fielding a total of 3,500 students over 4 playing months between January and April every year.
The 2015 Season will see the League organize and manage close to 1200 matches for students between the ages of 7 to 18 years old operating over 12 different venues, mostly host schools, as detailed in the venues section of this website.
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. All monies raised by the League is spent on venues, trophies, referees, Gala Day events and media.
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.
