Uesato, Kane join Ceres-Negros
as Kawase, Rodriguez move on

Japanese striker Takumi Uesato and versatile player Sean Kane are joining the Ceres-Negros FC for the 2018 season as Kota Kawase, Fernando Rodriguez, Iain Ramsay, Roland Müller, Josh Grommen and Luke Woodland are moving on to the next phase of their respective career.

In its official website, Ceres-Negros announced that Uesato and Kane, who used to play for the JP Voltes Marikina in the inaugural season of the Philippines Football League, will be part of the Bacolod City-squad this football season.

Uesato was a former player of Japanese club Kyoto Sanga in his younger years, where he played for three seasons. He brought his talents to JP Voltes in midway in 2016 after stints in Okinawa and Austria where he spent four years, Ceres-Negros posted on its website.

Brownlee sizzles
in ABL debut

New league, same old Justin Brownlee.

As if he is still playing for Ginebra, Brownlee blasted off for Alab Pilipinas, dropping 29 points in a near triple-double performance to lead the team to a 90-79 win over Malaysia in the first ABL game for 2018 at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan City on Wednesday night.

Alab, however, needed a fourth quarter breakaway as the Dragons overcame a slow start and even came close to silencing the pro-Alab crowd on the road.

Team Philippines tightens
criteria for Asian Games

Filipino athletes eyeing a spot at the 2018 Asian Games may have their work cut out ahead of this year's regional Olympics in Indonesia after officials said only medal holders need apply.

The southeast Asian nation, which has never won an Olympic gold and is known as a chronic underachiever in international sporting competitions, made the announcement Wednesday as it looks to boost the number of accolades it brings home.

"What is the use of sending young athletes without experience? We are sending possible medal contenders. This is not just for participation," Julian Camacho, the country's chief of mission for the Games, said.
