The 27-year-old has previously plied his trade for Mumbai City FC and Mohun Bagan too.

Mohammedan SC continue to strengthen their squad for the upcoming qualifiers as they have roped in former Mohun Bagan left-back Shouvik Ghosh.

The Kolkata outfit is building a formidable squad with the dream of moving up to the I-League in the upcoming season. They have also appointed former Punjab FC boss Yan Law as their new head coach. Now with Shouvik Ghosh’s signing, it will only strengthen their back line even more.

The 27-year-old left-back gained momentum in his career when he joined Pailan Arrows in 2010. His impressive performances for the development side earned him a call at Mohun Bagan and from that day there was no looking back for the Bengal-born defender. He won the I-League under the tutelage of Sanjoy Sen and also lifted the Federation Cup in the following season with the Mariners.

Subsequently, he made his ISL debut for Delhi Dynamos on loan from Mohun Bagan and was quite impressive in the inaugural season. In the next term, he plied his trade for NorthEast United and did not make much of a mark as he was battling with several injury concerns. The following season for Mohun Bagan wasn’t that great either as he failed to make the cut ahead of an in-form Dhanachandra Singh.

During the ISL draft in 2017, he was picked by Jamshedpur FC and he had a decent season with the Men of Steel. But, his downfall started since he joined NorthEast United later on. In the last season for the Highlanders, Ghosh has made handful appearances and was mostly struggling with his form. However, the 27-year-old is starting a different chapter in his career with Mohammedan SC and hopefully, his maturity and presence in the backline will boost the hopes of the Black Panthers and guide them to the I-League.

Apart from Shouvik Ghosh, the club has also snapped up former Churchill Brothers talisman Willis Plaza, former Aizawl and Mohun Bagan defender Eze Kingsley and have retained several local players including Tirthankar Sarkar, Priyant Singh, Hira Mondal, Sujit Sadhu, Firoj Ali, Sujoy Dutta, Safiul Rahman and Arijit Singh.

With the guidance of Dipendu Biswas and head coach Yan Law, the Black Panthers are aiming high again. Is this a beginning of a new dawn? Only time will tell.
