From The Playgrounds To III.Series

Football Club Tranquebar continue to strengthen the squad as they welcome three new faces in the main squad. In the last 3 weeks the club has said goodbye to a handful of player and the fans has seen new players like Mundra, Anand, Butt, More and Sawant as representatives of their club. Today club legend Rajinikanth ‘Foggy’ Reddy presented three new players to the press. Two players with a history at Tranquebar Talent Factory – The clubs youth academy – and the last one being an India talent who did not made his breakthrough i the Czech Republics VI.series club Atletico Scooby-Doo. A failed stay in Europe wont chance the fact that the former member of I-League team 1. FC Stern Marienfelde’s youth academy can make it big and that is why Traquebar sealed the 2.2 million € deal to get Akshay Iyer to Tharangambadi.

“We are delighted to present this three players to our fans today. Pranav Burman played 32 matches for TTF and scored six goals. He has been one of the top defensive players at our academy, in a period where the team has evolved well and been a consistent top team in HTUM Division IV. Hopefully Burman can continue to keep getting better as a part of the main squad.

For a long time it has been obvious that Fajahat Babar has been a top player at the academy. Both U20 and our own staff has followed him closely in his 24 appearances for TTF. He could have played more, and scored more than the six he got. He has to learn to control his temperament from now and on. Nine yellow and 1 red card in 24 matches are way too much.

Akshay Iyer is a type of player we have been looking for, for a while. He is still very young. He is powerful and have some decent skills, even though they could be better at his age. Nevertheless we believe that he can still get a good career in the next 10 to 12 seasons. He is the prototype of the talents we are looking for. Arnand are a little older, Butt a little younger, but they are on the same level. Players we can make better quite quickly. Players who can play for many years and keep our wages down.

We look forward to see the three new players in action in both the series, in Platinum Cup and in the golden league.”
