Punjab FC bolsters its squad with five new signings for the 2023-24 season

Punjab FC, owned by RoundGlass Sports, has strengthened its squad with five new signings – forward Ranjeet Singh Pandre, midfielders Amarjit Singh Kiyam, Ricky Shabong and defenders Nikhil Prabhu and Tejas Krishna.

Former I-League winner with Chennai City FC, Ranjeet scored three and assisted two goals during the I-League 2022-23 season with Mumbai Kenkre FC. The striker then went on to join Church Boys United in Nepal’s A Division League and helped the club lift their maiden title with two goals. Ranjit joins Punjab FC for the next two seasons and would be a key figure in the striking force.

Amarjit Singh Kiyam, captain of the Indian team at the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup, joins Punjab FC on loan from FC Goa. The versatile midfielder is known for his leadership skills and relentless energy in the middle of the park. He will play a vital role in coach Staikos Vergetis’s team.

Meghalayan midfielder Ricky Shabong came up through the ranks of Indian Arrows and later joined Mohun Bagan Super Giants with whom he went on to lift the Indian Super League title during the 2022-23 season. The midfielder joins Punjab FC on a two-year term and is expected to become a central figure in the upcoming season.

Defender Nikhil Prabhu joins Punjab FC after making his Indian Super League debut last season with Odisha FC and later moved to FC Goa for the second half of the season. He will be joined by another defender, Tejas Krishna, who was a key figure in the Kerala Blasters reserves when they finished runners-up in the Reliance Foundation Developmental League 2022 tournament. The young pair of defenders will be key to Punjab Football Club’s defensive performance in the upcoming season.

Speaking about the new signings, Technical Director of Punjab FC, Nikolaos Topoliatis said, “We are excited to have these young players among us for the upcoming season. We believe they will contribute significantly to the inspiring brand of football that we desire to play and to the Club’s success going forward.”
