They had earlier beaten Prayag United’s U-19 Team, East Bengal’s U-19 Team, Khidderpore Club’s Senior Team and Bidhannagar Academy U-19 boys.
The U-15 Regional Academy boys are presently preparing for U-16 International Competitions. They would first be playing at U-16 SAFF Championship in July and then at the AFC U-16 Qualifiers in September.
Head Coach Goutam Ghosh was effusive in praise about the fighting spirit of his wards.
“The way my boys played today showed that they are developing the right kind of attitude with every game. Their shoulders never droop, and they are always on their toes looking to pounce on every opportunity. This ‘never say die’ attitude is heartening to see,” he told www.the-aiff.com.
