Starting his career off as a striker, Shubham Dhas established himself as the developmental team’s number one choice between the sticks in the 2018-19 season. The run to the Goa Professional League title will have helped his confidence as the 20-year-old kept opponents out during his side’s run to the summit.
Dhas started playing as a striker for the Don Bosco High School, Pune when one of the team’s keepers got injured. The coach chose the youngster to step in to guard the goal and Dhas hasn’t looked back since. Dhas joined his first professional set-up, the Pune FC academy at 14 before switching over to the DSK Shivajians academy the next year.
