Charity Match in Kalyani for Kerala Flood Victims

To help raise money that could be donated to the KCMRF, a charity match was played in Kalyani Stadium, yesterday. The match was played between IM Vijayan led Red Star and Debajit Ghosh led Blue Star- both teams consisting of Maidan and India veterans. IM Vijayan, whose house in Kerala was damaged by the floods and consequently had to take shelter in his wife’s place, was very enthusiastic to be a part of this. In fact, players of both the teams were elated to have been participating for such a noble cause. Jerseys of the two teams were designed by Agnimitra Paul.

The match, a very friendly affair, ended in a draw, with both teams scoring a goal apiece. Red Star’s Raman Vijayan opened the scoring, with Blue Star’s Surojit Bose scoring the equaliser. IM Vijayan, unfortunately, couldn’t take the field, as he had been injured the day before.
