Led by head coach Naushad Moosa, the side features new signings Felixson Fernandes, Clarence Fernandes and Ankith Padmanabhan.

“I’m especially happy for the boys who have worked hard to earn this experience. The Reliance Foundation Development League gave me the opportunity to watch some of the players in action and assess where they stand in their path to the first team.

“The NextGen Cup will now help us play against some of the best youth teams in England, and we’re all really excited,” said Moosa, after the Blue Colts touched down in London and had a tour of Wembley Stadium.
