RoundGlass Punjab FC have announced the signing of Naocha Singh on loan from Mumbai City FC for the 2022/23 season.
23 year old Huidrom Naocha Singh started his career at the NEROCA FC’s youth set-up and went on to play for TRAU FC before returning to NEROCA to feature in the 2018-19 I-League. The Manipuri defender signed for Gokulam Kerala FC ahead of the 2019-20 campaign and was instrumental in their successful 2019 Durand Cup campaign. Naocha played every single minute in the tournament and also provided an assist for Gokulam Kerala’s winner in the final against Mohun Bagan AC.
Naocha, who is capable of playing on either side as a full-back, once again tasted success with the Malabarians as Gokulam Kerala lifted the 2020-21 I-League. Naocha played all 15 games without missing a minute in the title-winning campaign and displayed impressive performances on both sides of the defence.
Mumbai City FC signed Naocha Singh last season, but he was loaned to SC East Bengal for the season. Now he moves for another loan spell to RoundGlass Punjab FC.
