Defender Seriton Fernandes has signed a new long-term contract with FC Goa till the summer of 2022.

Seriton made his Indian Super League bow in 2017/18 as a Gaur after the club picked him in the 7th round in the 2017 ISL Players Draft.

He then went on to play a vital role in his first season in the club, establishing himself as the first-choice right-back.

He helped the club to semifinal appearances in both the Indian Super League and the Super Cup, a media release issued here said.

“Goa is home for me. Playing for the people and wearing the crest is something I really take pride in. To have the opportunity to play for the club is every Goan boy’s dream. And now to have the chance to extend my stay here was something I couldn’t say no to,” said Seriton.
