The AIFF’s Under-15 Kolkata Regional Academy defeated Kolkata’s Bidhannagar Academy by a solitary goal in a friendly match played at the Pailan World School Campus. Bidhannagar Academy were represented by their Under-19 boys.Jerry scored the winner from a 30-yard left-footed free-kick to register the Academy’s fourth consecutive victory. They had earlier beaten Prayag United Under-19, East Bengal Under-19 and Khidderpore Club’s senior team.

The AIFF Under-15 Regional Academy boys are presently preparing for Under-16 International Competitions. They would first be playing at Under-16 SAFF Championship in July and then at the AFC Under-16 Championship qualifiers in September.

Head Coach Gautam Ghosh lauded his boys for their discipline on the field. “They are 14-year old boys but are a very disciplined unit. These matches are the best possible manner to gauge your progress and I must say, the boys are making us proud,” Gautam Ghosh said.

“But I want to reiterate, these matches are all part of a learning process. This may be our fourth consecutive win but results stay immaterial when you are a Developmental Team,” Gautam Ghosh added.
