Formed in the year 2005 by Late Mr. Raju Rana, with a vision to promote local young talents and to see them play at a better stage. Apex F.C is one of the best clubs Kalimpong has ever produced.
Apex F.C has played many tournaments in and around North Bengal, Sikkim and neighbouring countries Nepal and Bhutan. However, Apex F. C´s best moment came in 2011 when they became the champions of Saheed Cup in Kalimpong. But the following year Apex lost its gem, their founder Mr. Raju Rana passed away due to prolonged illness. Since then senior players and president of the club Mr. Sanjeev Karki has been administering the club.
Recently Apex reached the finals of Siliguri Premier League where they lost to Royal F.C by a goal.
The Club´s main focus is in the development and improvement of local players, talking to Goalie365 club´s General Secretary Mario Sitling said “wherever we play, we make it point that all our local boys take the most benefit, this really helps us in producing good players”.
He also added “We have come a long way and still in a learning process because football is such a game where you never stop learning and achieving”.
Apex has a history of producing good players and is still carrying on the legacy. Bipen Thapa who has been associated with the club since existence has already played for Mohammedan Sporting, Kalighat M.S etc.
Apex F.C has not only produced good players but also good coaches. Gyaltshen Dorjee Moktan, one of the founding members and one of the best coach from the hills, has always helped the team on and off the field with his coaching role.
Recently in the G.T.A Chairman´s Gold Cup Apex F.C represented Kalimpong in the tournament, speaking to Goalie365 about the club´s experience in the tournament, captain of Apex F.C Jayles Rai said “It was a great opportunity to be a part of the tournament and representing Kalimpong though we were eliminated in the first round, it was a good experience for us and we are looking forward to playing similar tournaments in the near future and winning it”.
Lastly Apex F.C expressed their gratitude towards the people of Kalimpong for their love and support in these 14 years of club existence. As they often say “Small Town Big Dreams”.
It´s not the team with the best players that win. It´s the players with the best team that wins.
