Dempo SC have secured in the services of English centre back Calum Angus from I-League rivals Pune FC for the 2014/2015 season.

A product of the Portsmouth Academy, Angus is known for his tough tackling and has the ability to play out from the back with ease. Angus is a very efficient leader and has played for Portsmouth FC (England) and GAIS (Sweden).

Angus joins Dempo SC after having won five Man of the Match awards in the I-League for Pune FC last season and will be the lynchpin of the Dempo SC rearguard this season, who with a blend of experience and youth in their ranks will be considered one of the favorites to have a successful season under the watchful eyes of Arthur Papas.

“I am very happy and I’m looking forward to this exciting challenge with Dempo SC. I was very impressed with the style with which Dempo SC played last season. The club has built a very good squad under the guidance of Mr. Papas and I will give my best for the club and have a great season.” Angus said after signing on the dotted line for Dempo SC.

Dempo SC head coach Arthur Papas said, “We are extremely pleased to announce the signing of Calum Angus for the upcoming season. He is a player we coveted for some time after his impressive showing last season and has many characteristics both on and off the field which match the culture we are trying to establish at Dempo SC. We are very confident he will play a major part in helping Dempo SC achieve its goals for the coming season”
