The trials also saw Robin Singh, one of the biggest assets for the Delhi Dynamos team last season. The ace striker was seen interacting and encouraging the children present at the event. The striker also interacted with every aspirant giving them tips to improve their game.

Based on the performance, the final selection of talented players from today’s event will head to Mumbai along with their counterparts from 7 other Hero ISL teams to take part in the final selection camp where they will stand a chance to be selected for the Reliance Foundation Young Champs Programme.

Prashant Agarwal, President – Delhi Dynamos FC, said: “We very proud to conduct the Delhi leg of the Scouting Festival for Reliance Foundation Young Champs successfully. The immense quality on show is a result of immense scouting through our clinics, festivals and many other such initiatives. I am sure after seeing the talent and enthusiasm of our young Dynamos, Delhi would have a great representation in The Reliance Foundation Young Champs residential scholarship programme. This festival is also very crucial as it serves as the platform to kick start the grassroots initiatives for ISL 3. We are launching academies in several parts of the city with an elite academy in Greater Noida which would be up and running by August this year. We are also opening up an elite residential academy with world class facilities and infrastructure in Ekana, Lucknow later this year.”

Robin Singh, Player – Delhi Dynamos FC, said:“It is amazing that Delhi Dynamos is doing so much for aspiring footballers in North India. I wholeheartedly support the multiple initiatives launched by the Club. It is a great pleasure to see the drive and zeal in all the kids and I am sure this will allow them to reach great heights.”
