On the 16th (Sunday), the final round of the K7 Gyeonggi-do Bucheon City Division League match was scheduled to take place between Gyeonggi Bucheon Loroll FC and Gyeonggi Bucheon FC Clover. However, the away team FC Crowva withdrew and the home team LoLol FC won by forfeit.
LoLol FC coach Yoo Ho-jin played for Chungju Hummel, a former National League club, until he was 26. However, he could not solve the military service problem, so he enlisted as an ordinary soldier. After he was discharged from the military, he naturally left the world of soccer.굿모닝토토 도메인
Coach Yoo Ho-jin, who is entering his fifth year as coach of LoLol FC, said, “I was an elite athlete since I was young, and after serving in the military, I worked as a regular worker. “When he was 31, he became involved with LoLol FC at the recommendation of a friend at work,” he said.
Coach Yoo Ho-jin said, “When I first joined LoLol FC, I lived in Seoul, so I made a round trip of 1 hour and 30 minutes. I felt like the people I met here were very passionate about soccer and were good people. “This is why I am still active here.”
Currently, LoLol FC is a strong team with 6 former players. However, going back five years when Coach Yoo Ho-jin first took charge, the environment was difficult to train or even play games in. The number of players was only 5 to 6.
Coach Yoo said, “I received an offer to coach shortly after joining the team. He honestly didn’t want to direct at first. “At the time, I was the only player, and I felt like I was showing off for no reason,” he confessed.
In addition, “When I received the offer to coach, I experienced operational difficulties due to issues with the composition of the players. However, he accepted his position as manager with the intention of building a team around a few key players. “He tried to teach the players the know-how he experienced as a player,” he said.
The team name of LoLol FC is the abbreviation LOL, which stands for ‘Laughing Out Loud’, repeated twice. Starting from the 2022 season, when the team entered a stable position, it participated in the K7 Division League. In the first season, they finished 5th in the league with 1 win, 1 draw, and 3 losses, but this season they finished 3rd in the league with 3 wins and 2 losses.
Coach Yoo said, “Rather than immediate results, the most important thing is for the players to have fun playing soccer together. The ultimate goal is promotion to the K6 League, but it is important to maintain the current status and take each step one step at a time. Early soccer teams often disappear quickly. We want to become a team that will last for 10 to 20 years. “I want to make the team a team with tradition so that the children of the players who currently have families can inherit the team’s history,” he pledged.
