Md. Sp. NFL camp at SAI
Mohammedan Sporting’s 10-day residential camp, to prepare for the NFL, will be held at the SAI campus later this month. The exact dates will depend on whether the team qualifies for the October 22 final of the Airlines Gold Cup in Haldia. The camp was initially planned in Haldia itself, but the logistics didn’t work out.
The Airlines Cup will be new coach Shankar Maitra’s first assignment. Mohammedan Sporting open their campaign against Tollygunge Agragami on Thursday. The Durand Cup in the capital will follow the rigorous camp after which the back-and-white brigade will launch their maiden NFL campaign.
Rahul Shaw and Sangita Das will lead the state sub-junior boys’ and girls’ squads at the nationals to be held in Tandur (Andhra Pradesh) from Tuesday to next Sunday.
