It’s Noel Villaflor, the former Copy Editor and Sports Editor of Sun.Star Cebu, who now writes FOOTNOTE every Saturday in Sun.Star Cebu.

I've been a sports columnist since 1994. First, in The Freeman newspaper under "Tennis Is My Game." Then, starting in 2003, with Sun.Star Cebu under the name "Match Point." Happy reading!


  1. Hey John! Long Time since I’ve been here, but I have been reading your articles on the newspaper though.

    Yea I just noticed he’s writing again after just picking up the paper a few hours ago. Now if we can just get Homer back.. Hmm 😀

  2. Noel is an avid follower of football and will be welcomed by the thousands in Cebu and elsewhere who read Sun.Star and follow soccer. Thanks!

  3. Noel,
