Ekhyo Football Club – one of the 8 clubs that will compete at the upcoming Dimapur Football League (DFL) will be fielding a youthful 21-member playing contingent for the league scheduled to begin on September 14.

 

The squad will be led by coaches Gaibisin and Bijoy, both AIFF ‘D’ license holders. The players ranging in age from 16-24 will be skippered by 18 year-old Benri Humtsoe.

 

A launch-cum-player introduction programme was held today at West City, DC office junction.

 

Self discipline, respect and hardwork are the guiding principles of the fledgling team Ekhyo, which stands for victory in Lotha.

 

“A coalesce of the three virtues would map the road to victory,” was how K. Thenjamo Tsanglao, Associate Pastor, Lotha Baptist Church Dimapur, summed it up for the team, in his pep talk to the players. Self discipline, having the self control to refrain from destructive habits, respect for the people around and upholding the spirit of fellowship, the pastor said, are characteristics of life.

 

Ekhyo FC secretary Vanjamo Murry said that one of the primary objectives of the club is to provide a platform to aspiring players.
