And the 23-cap Trinidadian striker will now lead Alfred Fernandes side's attack, returning to the club he started his Indian journey from.

Anthony Wolfe was strongly linked to the I-League new entrants after Sporting Clube de Goa decided to pull out from India’s top division. And the 23-cap Trinidadian striker will now lead Alfred Fernandes’ sides’ attack, returning to the club he started his Indian journey from.

 “I am glad to back to where I have started my journey in India. I love the club and I am glad, it has come back to the I-League. I will always give my best to bring glory to Churchill Brothers,” said the 33-year-old.

The Red Machine’s return to the I-League won’t be easy, with a daunting task away to last seasons’ runners-up Mohun Bagan on the 8th of January being their opening fixture. But Wolfe, who is Churchill’s only foreigner, was confident of his and his sides’ ability to stir an upset in Kolkata.

"I am still the only foreigner in the side, and playing against the full strength Mohun Bagan will be really tough. But the young boys in the team are doing well and like always, we will go for the kill. I Hope we will return home smiling."

Churchill have not being quite active in the transfer market, with Wolfe the only signing that would pose some danger for the former champions.

"We have a foreign player on trial from Kazakhstan at the moment but it's too early to judge him. We should have a clearer picture in a couple of days. Some (foreign) players earlier playing in Kolkata are expected to be here (on trial), besides, of course Anthony Wolfe. We should be able to put up a fighting squad," a Churchill official had said some days ago.

Churchill Brothers are also likely to complete the signing of former Shillong Lajong and Rangdajied United winger, David KC Ngaihte in few days.
