14-year-old Parash Boro, from Dudhnoi of Goalpara district, who has been invited by a premier football club of Thailand to undertake advanced training, will leave for Bangkok this Sunday.
The Bangkok Football Club (BFC), formerly known as the Bangkok Bravo Football Club of Thailand has given the opportunity to Parash Boro.
He will be given three months advanced skill training in modern football beginning from May 25 to August 28 at the Marwyn stadium, Pak Kret, Nonthaburi, Bangkok under the programme ‘Elite Players Football Development Coaching Camp’.
The present head coach of the club Jakarat Tonhongsa will observe Parash’s skill and thereby take him to the next level.
Parash was picked up for this training by a group of BFC officials who were impressed by his football techniques at a coaching centre in New Delhi back in October 2017. However, since he is from a poor family, he didn’t have the necessary financial capacity to fulfill his dream.
St. Peters National Academy, Dudhnoi where Parash is a student, came forward to support him. “It feels great to help a talented sports kid like Parash”, remarked Shine KJ, principal of the school.
Another major contribution in this regard was by veteran photo journalist Vishma Thapa. “I appeal to the government as well as the district administration to come forward to help him”, said Vishma Thapa on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Parash was very happy at the end of the financial hurdle. “I am dying to learn new skills of the game at Bangkok. For a boy like me, it is a dream come true”, said an enthusiastic Parash. He also informed that he has already been offered the BFK jersey bearing No. 10, which was donned by many football legends.
