Torch Bearers successfully sign their long-awaited Domestic Targets


The Torch Bearers, East Bengal FC are successful in signing their prime domestic targets. They did target Odisha FC winger Nanda Kumar Sekhar. They also roped in Chennainyin FC versatile midfielder Edwin Sydney Vanspaul ahead of the 2023-24 season.

Boost for the Torch Bearers

Edwin and Nanda will be a big boost for East Bengal FC this season. Last season, they faced a big problem in the right-wing position. Coach Stephen Constantine did try many options in that position but none of them came out to be successful. Nanda Kumar Sekhar can be a good replacement of Aniket Jadhav who left for Odisha FC in the January transfer window 2023. Odisha FC had a decent season under their head coach Josep Gombau. And there Nanda had a verg good season there. Suhair VP had an okay season on the other hand and there. Now addition of Nanda and Mahesh being one of the star players, the wings looks really good.

Coming to the Right-back position now, there was a really situation in the Torch-Bearer’s team. Sarthak Golui played the maximum of the season as their make-shift Right back this season as Mohammed Rakip and Ankit Mukherjee was not at all up to the mark. Addition of Edwin will fulfill one of the positions for the Torch Bearers of this season. And also Edwin plays a good role in screening. In all Edwin and Nanda will be a good boost for the Torch Bearers.

Performance Analysis of Hero ISL 2022-23

Both Edwin and Nanda have had a decent season in 2022-23. Nanda was the one from both the wings of Odisha, i.e., the right-and-left wings has send many dangerous crosses. Those could have been very problematic for the defense of the opponent team. Besides his poisonous crosses, Nanda has also scored from a long ranger against “The Blues” this season.

On the other hand, Edwin was excellent at the right-back position in the absence of Ajith Kumar for the “Marina Machans”. Also Edwin sometimes did pair up with Julius Duker in the midfield and did destroy many attacks. Also Edwin has a great skill of hitting the target from distance. This makes him special from others. Edwin has developed a lot under their new head coach Mr. Thomas Brdaric this season.

In all, the two, both Nanda and Edwin could be a real boost for the “Torch Bearers” this season. They could fill in the gaps that have been created last year in their positions. Football Express confirms that the deal is likely to be completed very soon.
