FCI thrash Khalsa Blues
Food Corporation of India (FCI) whipped Khalsa Blues 3-0 in their BHA first division group A match Wednesday. SAI Training Centre drew 1-1 with BSF North Bengal. J. Singh, Sudhir Minz and Nicodine Nag scored for FCI. Theodore Baa scored for SAI and Vishwavir Singh replied for BSF. The other group A match between BNR and Howrah Union could not be held because of the afternoon shower.
Mohun Bagan have retained international midfielder Rennedy Singh for one more season. The Manipuri player had offers from JCT and a few Goan clubs, but opted for the city club, probably to recover a sizeable part of the amount promised to him last season.
