KOLKATA: Orbit Group Kolkata and Mohammedan Sporting Club came together to celebrate Black Panthers’s 2019 Sikkim Governor’s Gold Cup triumph and to recognize and reward top performers at the first ever Mohammedan Sporting Club Annual Awards Night, held at the Orbit Ashwa, in Kolkata, on Saturday evening.
The guests gathered together to honour those who made significant contributions to the Black Panthers’ quest for the Calcutta Football League silverware in what was a challenging season and, even though the end result fell short of achieving glory for the club and supporters, it was imperative for the club to acknowledge and reward players’ hard work.
“It is important for the club to review and take note of some of the highlights of the season and show appreciation to all involved in continuing to contribute to the rich history of this institution. In assessing what has essentially been a season of transition, during which new coaching methods and playing combinations take a while to bed in, it was still necessary to recognize the effort and unrelenting commitment of the warriors who wore the Black and White jersey with pride and fought gallantly for the Mohammedan Sporting Club badge. Learning the key lessons is always important because they will help us to pave the path for success in the future,” said Mohammedan Sporting Assistant General Secretary Dr. Taha Ahmed.
Goalkeeper Priyant Singh was named the Official’s Player of the Season. In a poll conducted online, Vanlalbiaa Chhangte was named the Fans’ Player of the Year and Sovan Sen was named Emerging Player of the Year, while Tirthankar Sarkar’s goal against Mohun Bagan in the Calcutta Football League was voted the club’s Goal of the Season.
“It’s been a phenomenal season and I’m really proud of the team, the staff and those who have been working behind the scenes at this club.” said club President Mr. Mohammad Amiruddin.
Rock band Sufiana made for entertainment on a night when the Black Panthers celebrated their historical Sikkim Governor’s Gold Cup triumph.
