Tough tackling central defender Gurwinder Singh is a product of the JCT Academy. The 29-year-old player started his career with the Millmen themselves way back in 2004. A consistent performer on the domestic circuit, Gurwinder moved to Kolkata in 2010 and was a vital cog in the magnificent East Bengal machine under the guidance of Trevor Morgan. He can slot into any position in defence and is an excellent team man. Gurwinder has been with Kerala Blasters FC since the inaugural edition of the league and has made 14 appearances for them heading into Hero ISL 2016.
