The Jamshedpur FC (JFC) Reserves outfit fell at the final hurdle to be the winners of the prestigious Bodousa Cup competition, organized in various places in Assam. JFC Reserves slumped to a 2 - 0 defeat against Saif Sporting, a club from Bangladesh, in the grand finale.
After victories over Moran Town Club in the group stage and Chyasal Youth Club in the semi-finals, hopes were high from the young colts of Jamshedpur. But Billu Teli and co. could not get the better of Saif Sporting in the ultimate showdown and succumbed to a 2 - 0 defeat.
Despite being on the losing side, Md. Asifullah of JFC Reserves was adjudged as the man of the match. And despite not being able to get their hands on the elusive trophy, the Bodousa Cup 2018 would prove to be a huge learning curve for the JFC Reserves side.
