Assam Falters in Santosh Trophy 2023–24: Services Secures 2-0 Victory Amidst Setbacks

Assam faced a setback in the 77th National Football Championship for the Santosh Trophy 2023–24, suffering a 0-2 defeat against Services in a Group A match at the Golden Jubilee Stadium in Yupia, Itanagar on February 28. The team encountered early challenges with key players Dipu Mirdha and Joydeep Gogoi receiving two yellow cards each. Services capitalized on the advantage, with Thingnam Bidhyasagar Singh scoring in the 44th minute, and P Christopher Kamei extending the lead in the 50th minute.
