|Sagar Hang Limboo|
While playing a tournament in Siliguri, Limboo was noticed by a senior footballer, who was impressed by his game and he put forward Limboo's name to the Kolkata Police Athletic Club which plays in Calcutta Premier League. He was called for trails but it took a lot of time for the Police to decide on Limboo, So he became a bit frustrated and decided to try his luck at Mohammedan Sporting Club where the coach liked him but again the senior footballer who had taken him to Kolkata convinced him to join the Police team, so finally Limboo donned the colours of the Kolkata Police Athletic Club in the Kolkata League. He scored 4 goals in the qualifying rounds.
Limboo also got a chance to play with Kolkata Giants, Mohun Bagan, East Bengal and Mohammedan Sporting, teams which he had till now watched just on TV and heard about their rich history and exploits from his father. Limboo said "It was like a dream come true for me to play with the big clubs of India, I had heard and watched their matches and suddenly I was playing with them".
Now Limboo has signed for Churchill Brothers and is training hard to further improve his skills. Limboo also has that ultimate dream of playing for the National team one day. Only time will tell if this dream of his will come true but for now this boy from Tipling is looking right on the course.
