    Hindustan Football Club, one of the premier clubs in the northern part
    of the country, added another feather to its cap by becoming the maiden
    top-flight club to launch its women's football team. The formation
    of the women's team is a giant step taken by the club in promoting the
    game since no other I-league teams (both first and second division) has a
    women's team at present. Announcing the launch of the team, Club
    President Sushil Pandit said the decision was taken to support and
    popularise the game among women. "The Delhi Soccer Association
    (DSA) is also looking to kickstart its women's league and Hindustan FC,
    being one of the premier clubs in the country, we have decided to start
    our women's wing," he said. The team, which will be captained by
    Indian under-19 international Neha Kapoor comprises of some national
    level players - Kuhelika Guha, Nancy Gupta, Neha Yadav and Pooja
    Manderwal among others.
