What is the story behind the most prized catch of the ‘Services’ players in season four? This defender from Puneri Paltan took to the game when he was 13, but only got serious when he witnessed the glory of five gold medallists and three Asian Games players in his village, Sonepat in Haryana. By the time he was just 17, he had played in the senior nationals and thereafter joined the Services team. The 2014-15 season proved to be defining for his career when he played in the national team which won gold.
A typical Punjabi by heart, Surjeet’s his favourite singers are Daljit Singh and Babbu Maan and he chooses his home food over any other cuisine. He is the younger of two siblings and loves hanging out with friends in his free time.
Surjeet is excited about joining U Mumba this season and is certain that playing with senior players will increase his experience. He is also game to ensure U Mumba do not miss their former star defenders’ class.
