Manipuri winger Seityasen Singh has extended his stay with Kerala Blasters by signing a new contract ahead of the 2020/21 edition of the Indian super league.
Seityasen Singh Started off his career at Shillong based outfit Royal Wahingdoh FC. He made his debut for the Northeastern side in the federation cup. Seityasen Singh’s contributions were very crucial for Royal Wahindoh FC in their quest for promotion into the I-League. Royal Wahindoh Battled 4 straight years for gaining promotion into the I-League which was India’s top division back then.
Seityasen Singh played an important role in Royal Wahindoh’s 2011 I-League second division campaign but unfortunately, they failed at the final hurdle. Forgetting the heartbreak of last season Seityasen Singh and Royal Wahindoh FC continued playing positive football. Seityasen Singh scored twice in the group stages and propelled his side into the final round with stellar performances but yet again couldn’t clear the final hurdle. In his third campaign with the Royals, Seityasen Singh continued to showcase his talent even though the team was having a disappointing season netting three goals. Finally in his fourth season with Royal Wahindoh Seityasen Singh was able to launch his team into the I-League
After 5 Outstanding seasons with Royal Wahindoh Seityasen Singh was picked by Indian Super League Club Northeast United. The pacey winger made an instant impact in the Indian super league for the highlanders. With his pace, he was able to threaten opposition defenses. He was able to earn the emerging player award 4 times and score 1 goal. In a northeast united squad that was reliant on their foreign players, Seityasen Singh was a bright spark. His amazing performances earned him a much deserved national team call up.
The Royal Wahindoh star after his loan spell at Northeast United joined Goan side Salgaocar for the I-League and then penned a deal with Northeast United which brought him back to Guwahati for a second season. In his second season, the Winger was even sharper and hugely determined showing his attacking prowess with effective runs through the righthand side of the highlanders attack bagging 2 goals in 9 appearances. Northeast United yet again had an astonishing set of foreign players and they were yet again reliant on them for getting the goals. But like the previous season, Seityasen Singh proved his class by finishing as their top Indian goalscorer.
In 2017 Seityasen Singh joined DSK Shivajians on loan from Northeast United but failed to perform up to expectations. He couldn’t contribute any goals or assist for the shivajians. He struggled to replicate his previous performances for DSK Shivajians. From there on Seityasen Singh has struggled to regain his form. with a mediocre season at Delhi Dynamos in the 17/18 edition of the Indian super league and an injury-hit 18/19 season with Northeast United Seityasen Singh was roped in by the two-time Indian super league Finalist Kerala Blasters.
At Kerala Blasters Seityasen Singh was not a guaranteed starter as the Kochi based side already had local boys Rahul KP and Prasanth at their disposal. Although Seityasen Singh couldn’t do what he did at Royal Wahindoh or the Northeast he showed glimpses of his quality whenever he was handed an opportunity by Eelco Schattorie. He was able to score for the Blasters in their game against Indian super league New boys Hyderabad FC.
Seityasen Singh will certainly look to play more minutes and improve on his performances for the Kerala Blasters in the Upcoming edition of the Indian super league. Kerala Blasters have Already handed extensions to Jessel Carneiro, Abdul Hakku and Sahal Abdul Samad Officially. Kerala Blasters have been doing well in the domestic market by making crucial team players sign long term deals. The Retentions are not ending with Seityasen Singh as the Kerala Blasters are expected to extend the contracts of few other players as well.
