Neroca FC will be a part of the I-league Senior division next season after topping the 2nd division table this year. . . 

Proving the heralded contribution of the NorthEast to Indian football yet again, Neroca FC has joined the I-league and are making all the right noises. After losing just one game in the second division journey this season, the NorthEast club is making all the right noises by bringing in foreign players to their home-city to train and acclimatise to the surroundings.

The club has announced that they're welcoming Austrailian defensive midfielder Aryn Williams at their ground for training in July. The club also confirmed that they'll take a call on his participation with the squad after the training stint gets over. Neroca boosted the morale of Williams saying that he's a high-quality player and will add to the strength of the side.

Williams is a dynamic 23-year-old that can play as a centre-back as well. The versatile midfielder has played with Burnley in the English Championship, which gave him vast and invaluable experience. The hand-tackling player has plied his trade for Australian club Perth Glory for the last two years and is looking for new challenges.

In the post on a social media platform, Neroca FC announced, 'Neroca FC is happy to inform you that Aryn Williams an Australian Footballer will be joining us for training in July. It is a good opportunity for us to see a high-level player in training after which we will take a call on if he will be part of the squad for the I-League 2017-18.

Aryn Glen Williams (born 28 October 1993) is an Australian professional footballer who last played for Perth Glory in the A-League. Can play as a centre-back and defensive midfielder.

Journey:

2012–2013 Burnley
2014–2015 Floreat Athena
2015–2017 Perth Glory
2016–2017 Perth Glory Youth

Few other foreign players also would be visiting NEROCA FC.'

The last line would've given Neroca FC fans much to cheer about as they gear up to welcome foreign superstars on the pitch. Neroca FC received unexpected support this season as they romped to I-league 2nd Division victory with 13 points from 6 games. The side will join Aizawl FC and Shillong Lajong to add representation from the cradle of footballing talent in the country. Neroca FC's introduction might ruffle a few feathers in Goa, as the state had various representations in India's Premier League until last season.
