Youth Football

Postby paquebot » Mon Oct 26, 2015 2:25 am

I work near Shingok Elementary School and, while attending a sports day festival last month, noticed they have some banners up about former students:

K-League Classic
연지민 (2006년 졸업) 수원 삼성 | Suwon Samsung

K-League Challenge
오제헌 (2007년 졸업) 경남 FC | Gyeongnam FC
정기운 (2005년 졸업) 수원 FC | Suwon FC
정민우 (2005년 졸업) 수원 FC | Suwon FC
황신영 (2007년 졸업) 부천 FC | Bucheon FC

Japan
오재석 (2002년 졸업) 감바 오사카 | Gamba Osaka
나성수 (2006년 졸업) 요코하마 FC | Yokohama FC

Europe
황희찬 (2009년도 졸업) 오스트리아 FC 레드불 잘츠부르크 | Red Bull Salzburg 입단
김재헌 (2009년 졸업) 영국 포츠머스 FC | Portsmouth (Mentioned on ROKfootball here but released from the Portsmouth academy last year. What's he up to now?)
이지훈 (2007년 졸업) 헝가리 록시즈 FC | ??? (No idea what club that is. Checked the L and R clubs on Wiki without success.)

While searching for info about Kim Jae Heon I found this article about Singok Elementary School. Includes the comment:

Simon Kravis wrote:They were like a miniature professional team, floating exquisite crosses from tight marking, wrong-footing defenders and all with a huge level of enjoyment. Their coach hardly said a word during the games - they were so well trained that he didn't need to.


Is that The Silent One they're talking about? :shock:

In Yangju, if your cabbage doesn't understand you and you have valid reason for not eating it, then it is ok to go to other vegetables for your kimchi - though strictly nothing from south of Namyangju. -- Martyrs Forever

And because I just stumbled across it on BigSoccer:

2015 National High School League Final
Ulsan Juniors (현대고) vs Jeonnam Juniors (광양제철고)

YouTube Link


Jeonnam led 3-0 at the half but Ulsan scored four in the second to win the match 3-4. Oh In-pyo scored a hattrick for Ulsan.

Wouldn't it be great if it was the Silent One? He won loads at a school but couldn't hack it in the 'big league'!

Can you let me know if you figure the Hungarian team out.....I've been looking for ages! That's going to kill me! The nearest I could get was somewhere in Latvia....but I think it was the name of a cafe!

Googling 록시즈, I came up with this article, which states:
또 아시아 학생 축구 선수권대회 한국대표 선수로 6명이 선발됐고 대전 시트즌FC 1명, 일본 카탈레 도야마(J2) 1명, 몬테그로 자발로 FC 1명, 헝가리 커포슈바르록시즈 FC 2명 등이 프로축구단에 입단했다.

A bit more googling indicates that that team is probably KAPOSVÁRI RÁKÓCZI FC although I can't find any Koreans listed in their squad or recent transfers.

Good find! Thanks.

The fact that you can't find any record of him makes perfect sense as he never went there. The old coach was ringing around to find out where his best players ended up so that he could negotiate an extra notch on his pay packet. Calling the Lee family, he caught them by surprise. They had just found out that their only son, famed throughout the neighbourhood since childhood as a player of extraordinary ability, had turned his back on the game of football and had turned to the murky world of male cheerleading. Inspired by the attention received by the girls at the baseball, Lee had abandoned training years earlier to join a secret gym in Yangju, which catered for this perverse activity. For three whole years, whilst his parents believed him to be a star player at a local high school, Lee had actually been donning the pom-poms and lycra and had been working tirelessly to perfect routines to a number of popular hits - both Korean and American. Spotted by a group of moustached Eastern European recruiters from the Moldovan International (National) Manly Cheerleading League, Lee was offered a lucrative contract - and a Moldovan passport - to attend the 2nd National Moldovan Academy of Gymnastical Athleticism, receiving a full scholarship and a semi-pro deal with the local Manly Cheerleading League team, Dynamo Tiraspol. Embarrassed at being a cheerleader, Lee lied to his parents and told them he was going to study football in Hungary under the legendary Ferenc Puskas, who had died 4 years earlier. His parents were appeased as they were huge fans of Korean drama, Iris, which had been set in Budapest. Four years later, Lee returned to Seoul armed only with a moustache, three Golden Leotards (the Moldovan Male Cheerleading League Golden Boot) and a dream. Under his new Moldovan identity, Vlad Prokupets, he set up Korea's first male cheerleading academy, Seoul You Think You Can Dance, in a disused warehouse near Namyangju. Lee's parents were told of this a mere three seconds before receiving a call from his old elementary school football coach and in their panic confirmed that Lee had indeed been playing successfully for Kaposvari Rakoczi and that they would be happy for the coach to use his name in both his contract negotiations and any consequent publicity for the school.

That's fantastic, thanks. I spent more time searching for 김재헌 and, for whatever reason, didn't even think to look for Korean articles about 이지훈. I suppose there's a chance that he's with Kaposvári Rákóczi's reserve side. Csapat seems to be the Hungarian word for 'roster' and Koreai is 'Korean'. I've tried a quick Google search for 'Kaposvári Rákóczi koreai csapat*' and haven't had much luck finding anything that helps me figure out what 이지훈 is doing these days.

However, in February 2014, Kaposvári Rákóczi played friendly matches against Suwon Samsung and Liefering of Austria -- the latter being the current club of 황희찬, another alumnus from 신곡초. I would have thought that if 이지훈 were to get a chance at the first-team it would have been one of those two matches.

I don't think he's there. He may be in the reserves. He may have moved on. He may have never been there....

Having trawled through the squad and transfer info, I don't think he's ever been there. Unless he was way down the system.

I wonder how the school got their information. Then again ... 황희찬 was listed as a Red Bull Salzburg player on the school's banner but is actually on loan to their feeder club FC Liefering this season; I suppose it's always possible that 이지훈 signed a contract with Kaposvári Rákóczi and then got loaned out to some other side that has an association with the main club. If he's playing in a fourth or fifth tier Hungarian side I can understand how it's much harder to find information on his current whereabouts.

Also, while doing more digging, I found some other players from Shingok Elementary that are now too old to see their name on school banners:

윤평국 (2006년 졸업) | Incheon United, currently on loan to Sangmu Sangju
김병오 (2003년 졸업) | Chungju Hummel (+2010 Guangzhou Asian Games team, Korea U23 team and a spell at Romanian side CFR Cluj)
박문호 (2004년 졸업) | Phitsanulok FC (Thailand 1st Division) - has a twitter account.

And my favorite:

김성재 (2004년 졸업) | Yangju Citizen FC (No.3, joined in 2014 from Jeonbuk Hyundai)

Yangju?! :shock:
If he's still a part of the team next season I'll have to ask him about that.
