Good to see a couple of Scholasticans in the age group teams. I remember the golden era (in the mid-nineties) when we used to go to the Dhaka stadium to watch the likes of Rono, Tasabbur, Shaker, etc. beat the crap out of other schools. We had 5 or 6 players in the national U-19 squad back then. I think Iftekhar Nayeem went to Scholastica too.

How did you guys do this time?
Not good this time, we were out from the first round. We won two matches and lost two matches. Unfortunately Rakin was injured and Iktedar had to go to Dinajpur for the training camp. This two are the best players we have at the moment so without them it was very tough for us to win a match.
