Sk. Wasim Akram on Wednesday formally took charge as the General Secretary of city football outfit Mohammedan Sporting Club, a statement said.

After former General Secretary Mohammed Qamaruddin vacated the post due to personal reasons, 33-year-old Akram was elected unopposed at the executive committee meeting, chaired by President Mohammed Amiruddin.

"We are delighted to have Wasim Akram as our General Secretary. We have no doubt he will help strengthen our administration and steer the ship forward," said Amiruddin.

While Akram will be the General Secretary, Sharique Ahmed and Dipendu Biswas were elected as finance secretary and football secretary respectively.

"I am honoured to be associated with Mohammedan Sporting Club and would like to thank, the Executive Committee for considering me for this post. There was a time when Mohammedan Sporting Club set the benchmark in Indian Football and we will leave no stones unturned to take Mohammedan Sporting Club where it belongs," said Akram.

Ahmed said: "My immediate target is to channelize our resources properly. We need to allocate accordingly to cricket, athletics and even work on the cultural aspects of the club."

He also requested fans to get life membership and make the club even stronger.

Biswas made it clear that as football secretary his primary objective is to qualify for I-League.

He also mentioned that he has a long term vision for the club which includes emphasis on grassroots program and promoting local talent.
