North East Stars defender Glenton Wolfe is set to team up with his younger brother, 30-year-old Anthony Wolfe, at I-League outfit Churchill Brothers FC for the upcoming 2014-2015 season in India.
Glenton, who is expected to join Churchill Brothers within the coming week, said he has already agreed to a three-year deal, which expires at the end of the 2016-2017 season.
It would be the 32-year-old Glenton’s first move outside of Trinidad and Tobago, but he will be the fifth T&T player to ever ply his trade in the I-League.
Glenton is a former San Juan Jabloteh defender and a former member of the T&T national football team. He expressed excitement over his first move outside the country after a decade in the T&T Pro League.
“I’m really excited,” said the Manzanilla-born defender told TT Pro League.com.
“This is the first time I would move abroad after a long time in the game. And (I’m) excited to experience a different country and culture.
“The club (Churchill Brothers) wanted a defender and my brother (Anthony) recommended me. They requested video recordings of me, and my football résumé. They were impressed enough and actually wanted me to join the club earlier this year but I wanted to finish the season with North East Stars
