This was Anuj’s second triumph in one of India’s and world’s oldest football tournaments, having previously won in the 2017 edition. In Real Kashmir’s run to the final, Anuj played against Peerless SC and Southern Samity and gained some valuable experience out on loan.

The Snow Leopards will now be in action in the I-League which begins in January.
