Shastry Soccer Club was started by die-hard footballers like Tony, Jesu Raj, Aleem Khan, Victor Amalraj and Mohan. They pick children from the nearby slums and coach them free of cost. To enthuse them, they organise under-16 and under-18 community level tournaments and inter-schools tournaments at the Lal Bazaar football ground.
This ground has been the hub of many football activities since the 1960s, and has produced some of the best footballers of those days, like Victor Amalraj, K P Dhanraj, Balaraman, Peter Thangaraj, D Kannan, P Ramaswamy, Aleem Khan, Tony and John Victor.
