Nagaland lad Lironthung Lotha has extended contract with RoundGlass Punjab Football Club (I-League) for another two years on July 18.

The 22-year-old right-back, son of Lidemo Jami, is a native of Chudi village and permanently residing at Merapani, Wokha. Initially, Lironthung signed one-year contract with RoundGlass Punjab FC in 2020. The contract expired in May 2021. 

During the one-year period, the Naga lad had played two matches during the last I-League season. 

Taking note of his calibre and performance during the last I-League season, he was offered another two-year contract in the same club. Lironthung plays right back and right winger positions. 

Speaking to Nagaland Post, Lironthung said although he was a fullback and a winger, he was flexible and could adjust his play. “I will therefore follow my coach’s instructions and play any position he deems fit for me during the game”, said Lotha.

Sharing about his past experiences during the last I-League season, he said that being a kid who played at a village ground and getting the opportunity to play in the I-League was a great experience.

On his expectations for the next season, Lironthung said he would play to the best of his abilities taking advantage of every opportunity given to him. Lironthung also said he would make effort to learn beyond limit from his coaches and team mates. For the rest, he has left it to God Almighty to lead and guide him.

Asked about jersey number that he expected to get this time, he said that so far jersey number 66 has been lucky and he hoped to wear on the same jersey number. 

Lironthung said he gladly accepted the offer because the club has great training facilities besides being trained by top coaches from around the world.
