Left – back, the position in which he first impressed for LiFFA as a youngster, producing the talent necessary for his selection in U-14 Kerala State team for Khelo India National championship 2016-17, where his success had continue. However, recent season and the necessity of the squad have seen moved into the left midfielder yet maintain his status as one of LiFFA’s most reliable investments and indeed for the Trivandrum U-17 District team, too. He learned his basic lessons of football from the JAI HIND football club, Pulluvila and he is the younger son of Ambrose Louis and Thresia Louis.


He started his career with SBFA Poovar, it’s a popular football academy in Trivandrum coastal area and went on to wear the colours of some local academy competitions in the regional level. His ball and game controlling ability was spotted by the Technical Director Cleofas Alex during the regional academy competition and advised him to attend the try out camp of LiFFA and was selected in the team.

The year 2019-20 is very special for Vinosh Vijayan, he feels the turning point of his football career is the admission of LiFFA Trivandrum. He really deserved the place in TDFA U-17 team, he gained the team’s respect and now see the hard work he’s putting in and he stepped up in leading the team. Who played a vital role in the U-17 state championship as great wall of defence and earning the TDFA its Runner up cup after a long time. He is really a good soccer player, he has strong, physical presence and great at reading the field and distributing the ball.

The Emmanuel’s physical and mental attributes are what lend him selves so well in the scenario, superb ball control and an uncanny willingness to work without the ball being at the top of the asset list. Despite playing in the little over a period of U-17 Kerala State Championship, Emmanual has quickly convinced that he’s among the cream of the crop when it comes to needed the goals. This is his first appearance in TDFA colour. We hope in coming years he will become one of the most dangerous forwards in our state in his age category.
