Who can ever forget the Hindmotor-born goalkeeper’s superlative display under the bars in the 2016 Hero Indian Super League final against Kerala Blasters FC that helped the erstwhile ATK FC bag their second Hero Indian Super League title? Recipient of the ‘Best Goalkeeper’ award in the 2016-17 Hero I-League and two Hero I-League winners medals, ‘Save-jit’ Majumder last played for us in 2011-12 and has been a seasoned campaigner on the Indian football circuit.
