Malaysian footballer Stevenson Sundara Segaran arrived at the Bagdogra Airport on Thursday afternoon to join Share FC for training in Kalimpong. His aim is to play in the I-league or any other professional club in the country and he has accepted Share FC’s offer to practice with the club which will help him to acclimatize to Indian conditions.
Stevenson Sundara Segaran said: “I look forward to train with Share Football Club and hope I can offer some help to the younger players there. I’m also looking forward to see Kalimpong and enjoy my time there.”
Segaran has had a stint with a Football Academy in Brazil in 2006 and plays as a midfielder. Last season he had played in the Kuala Lumpur 1st Division League in Malaysia.
Segaran’s first match for Share FC might be on April 6 when the club will turn out to play in an exhibition match against IIS Football Club (Thailand) at Mela Ground in Kalimpong. IIS FC is a team made up of players from Ramkhamhaeng University which is based in Bangkok. This match will be hosted by Share FC for the general entertainment of the football loving people of Kalimpong and also to give its footballers the experience of playing with a foreign team.
“We welcome Stevenson with open arms and we are also thankful to him for accepting our proposal of training with a small club like ours. This has proved in a small way that we are moving in the right direction. We will provide all our support to Stevenson,”Share FC’s General Secretary said.
Segaran reached Kalimpong in the evening and he is expected to start training on Friday.
