Hailing from Shillong, the 25-year-old winger came through the ranks at Shillong Lajong and made his I-League debut in 2013.
After a number of successful seasons in the red of Lajong, he made a permanent move to NorthEast United FC (Highlanders) in 2018 - making an immediate impact, a media Release by FC Goa said.
With him controlling the right wing, NorthEast United made it to the playoffs for the very first time in the 2018/19 season. Last season also saw the winger improve on a personal front - scoring 3 goals in the ISL.
