Kenkre Trainee Arya Gandharva Selected For India U-15


Kenkre FC is delighted to inform about the selection of our academy trainee Arya Gandharva to the Indian National U-15 squad. Arya Gandharva has been a part of our academy setup and his progress and hard work at the academy has borne fruit in the form of a call-up to represent the Blue Tigers on the world stage. It is a huge moment in the nascent career of Arya and the training imparted at Kenkre will give him the much-needed confidence and motivation needed to thrive for the national side.

We spoke to his local academy coach Francisco Dominic, who himself represented Kenkre FC for over 5 years . Francisco coached Arya at his academy ‘Galaxy Boyz’ where he started off as a youngster. The former coach was full of praise for his protege, "The best part about Arya is that he's disciplined to a great level in his training, he is extremely thoughtful and knowledgeable about the game."

Francisco further spoke about Arya and his contribution towards his development as a footballer, "Arya wasn't always confident about his capabilities and came from a family who had no sports background but he was always encouraged to play, together with his family crucial decisions to sustain his football growth were made which motivated him to give his best always."

He also added that the Kenkre FC has been very helpful in providing opportunities to players and coaches to nurture footballing talent in Mumbai.

The entire Kenkre FC fraternity wishes their heartiest congratulations for Arya's selection to the Indian National U-15 team and a successful stint with the Blue Tigers.

Kenkre FC continues its commitment towards the development of Mumbai football and Arya's selection is a testament to our efforts towards this cause.
