Jharkhand State Handball Association (JSHA) secretary Khurshid Khan has netted a goal on the national stage.

Khan, who was elected secretary of the state outfit for the third time in August, has been nominated as the co-chairman of technical committee of Handball Federation of India (HFI).

The nomination took place in December at an annual general body meeting of the national outfit at Badminton Academy in Ghomti Nagar, Lucknow.

Expressing happiness over his nomination, Khan said: “I thank the HFI for giving me this responsibility. I will try to fulfil it to the best of my abilities,” he added.

Jamshedpur-based Khan has been a veteran handball administrator for several years now.

He is a regular at the JRD Tata Sports Complex, where budding handballers of the city hone their skills.

Khan’s job will involve handling the technical aspects governing the game and will require extensive knowledge and experience of the game.

The newly formed committee of the national handball outfit comprises, besides Khan, M. Ramasubramani (president), Anandeshwar Pandey (secretary-general) Bashir Ahmad Khan (treasurer), M.K. Nagendra (co-chairman of technical committee), Atanu Majumdar and A. Sarvanan (chairmen of referee board).

J.S. Soodhan from Jammu and Kashmir has been nominated as HFI adviser while Mohinder Lal Sai is the head coach. Sarwan Singh Channy has been nominated life president of the federation.
