Anit Ghosh Ex East Bengal Captain wishes IFAShield USA Success

Message from Gautam Roy, a noted football historian and statistician best known for his work in the book East Bengal 100 where he documented the illustrious 100 year history of the club. Mr. Roy is the former Media Manager of East Bengal club and is currently working on Indian football.

"I am thrilled and honoured to learn that IFA Shield USA is organizing a replica Kolkata Derby match at Atlanta which would be the most fitting tribute to celebration of India 's 75th year of Independence. IFA Shield which kicked off in 1893.is the 3rd oldest Heritage Football Tournament of India.I had been cyconosure of all the fans ever since Mohun Bagan won the Shield in 1911 which inspired the Indian youth to greater nationalistic deeds.East Bengal also became the first Indian team to win it three years in a row from 1949-51 thereby earning wide recognition and also the first side to be invited to Europe. In the history of the IFA Shield the iconic Kolkata Derby has been held 40 times.I wish the organisers all the Best wishes for drafting the sporting heritage of one of India's lifeline to faraway USA."
