Wolves kickstart partnership with India's JCT Hills

As part of a wider Wolverhampton-India Project launched at the House of Commons in the UK recently, Wolves and the Punjab-based club, which finished runners up in the 11th National Football League recently, are moving towards a "sharing of knowledge" partnership aimed at promoting wide interaction between the two teams.

"Friendly matches between the two teams would be organised in Wolverhampton and in Punjab to generate mass interest," JCT president Samir Thapar said in a press release.

"At some point in the future, the possibility of the JCT Mills visiting Molineux (the Wolves stadium) for a series of exhibition games is currently being explored," Lorraine Hennessy, of the Wolves media division, told the Times of India .

The partnership is crucial from an ethnic point of view. Wolverhampton has among the largest Asian population in the country and unlike many of the other football clubs in the UK, are active participants in the local footballing ethos.

"The tie-up would cover areas of sharing of knowledge partnership between the two. We are also looking at sharing of coaching skills, visits of experts from both the teams to study and learn from each others experiences," JCT's Thapar added.

Wolves are expected to send coaches to JCT in the coming weeks.
