English professional soccer club, Reading FC has announced scholarships for two budding footballers of the Arunachal Pradesh, its adviser Tomo Nomuk said here today.
Prior to the announcement, Nomuk said, he held a discussion with Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Nabam Tuki and Lok Sabha member Takam Sanjoy on promotion of soccer in the state.
After a threadbare discussion with Sanjoy, who is also the president of Arunachal Pradesh Football Association (APFA), Reading decided to go for a talent hunt and train youths.
Top notch coaches from the English club will tour different parts of the state in connection with the training programme, possibly from October next year, he said.
"Under the six-month RFC-APFA MoU, the coaches from the internationally famed club with our support would tour all over the state to identify footballers with potential to become world class players," the MP added.
