Brandon Fernandes

BornSeptember 20, 1994

Brandon Fernandes is an Indian footballer from (Margao, Goa) India, who is on trial as a creative midfielder in the Premier League for Reading FC. He has previously represented Salcaoncar Academy and African Soccer Developments(ASD). He is the only Indian player to have represented India in all age-groups having played at U-13, U-16, U-17, U-19 levels. At the age of 16, he was selected amongst the best 20 players chosen by the watchful eyes of one of the world’s biggest clubs, Manchester United, thus becoming the very first Asian player to have earned an invitation from Cape United Soccer School of Excellence, South Africa, to attend a week-long selection trial. Fernandes already took a huge leap of faith at the age of 16 when he left his family in Goa, and travelled 5,000 miles to Cape Town to join ASD. Brandon’s dedication towards the game was evident at a tender age of six and his parents, Jiju Fernandes and Antoneta Fernandes, brought him to Fransa FC academy. However, the unfortunate disbanding of Fransa FC after a couple of years meant that Brandon had to shift his base to Velsao Pale Sports Club. The coaching staffs at Velsa Pale were so impressed by the quality and competence of this 8-year old kid that they deemed him capable enough to participate at Under-14 level – which was an unique achievement for a kid of his age. Currently on a trial at Premier League club Reading, he hopes to be the first player of Indian Nationality to play in the top tier of English Football.
