There was a time when numerous young talented footballers of Mawdatbaki Village were neglected and deprived of their passion and love for the game – although only a few have been presented with the opportunity of representing a reputed Football Club in the city of Shillong. The idea of providing the youths of our community a platform to showcase their talents and to be able to compete at the highest level led to the foundation of the Club by the wise elders of the Local Durbar in the early part of the year 1987. This initiative by our leaders excited and thrilled every sport loving individual and became a platform for the ones who were passionate about the beautiful game of football.
The Club’s founding fathers wanted to name the Club “The Eleven Jewels”, but due to the prevailing social unrest in the state as a whole and in Shillong in particular, the move did no bear fruition. Yet, the ambitious youths of Mawdatbaki strived tirelessly to achieve this aim to form a Football Club when the situation in the state took a positive route and normalcy prevailed. Consequently, the Seng Samla Mawlai Mawdatbaki, a non-profitable youth social welfare organization of the locality also shouldered this dream and together formed the Ryntih Sports Club in the year 1990 with the motive to encourage and support the less fortunate players with the opportunity to compete at a distinguished level. The objective of the Club was to emphasize on the promotion of sporting activities and providing young talents with the exposure in a bigger platform, particularly the game of football.
