Bala Devi returns to footballing action for Rangers FC in Scotland

23

Kolkata, Oct 19 | Indian women’s national football team forward Bala Devi had decided to stay back in Glasgow, Scotland during the worldwide lockdown enforced by the Covid-19 pandemic. Now, however, the 30-year-old is back on the field as the Scottish Women’s Premier League resumed on October 18.

Rangers Women FC got off to a flying start with a 5-1 victory over SWPL side Hearts on Sunday as Bala also made her return to the pitch, coming on as a second-half substitute.

“It was really good to be back on the football pitch once again. Being away from the pitch for so many months is not a good feeling,” Bala told the-aiff.com.

“But all those months of hard work paid off, and we have now started off with a win but this is only the start of a long season ahead,” she added.

Bala had been training for the Rangers for around two months ahead of her first post-pandemic game against Hearts Women FC.

However, it has not always been an easy time at her new home in the British Isles.

“The first month I was feeling quite lonely because all the other players went home as they were from nearby areas — or at least from somewhere in the UK or the neighbouring countries. It was just a few others and myself that actually stayed back,” said Bala.

“But I kept in touch with everyone and that helped. The coaches also took good care of me. They even took me out shopping once the lockdown was over. These are very small things in the larger scheme of things, but they do help lighten your spirits,” she added.

The mercurial India striker feels that the months she spent in self-isolation gave her a new perspective on how to do things.

“That time really taught me how we should be ready for different situations in life. We never know what may happen. A few years back, I would have laughed if anyone had told me that all major global activities would come to a standstill for a few months. But that is what happened,” she said.

“We should all be ready to adjust ourselves according to the problems that life throws at us. If we are flexible, we can manoeuvre our way through anything. Take everything into your stride and be the best that you can in any given situation,” she added.
