Naocha, who hails from Manipur, helped Gokulam Kerala win the I-League in the 2020-21 season, playing every minute for the Malabarians that term. Earlier, he was key to their successful 2019 Durand Cup campaign.
The full-back, capable of playing on either flank, began his career with NEROCA FC’s youth set up and went on to play for TRAU FC before returning to NEROCA to feature in the 2018-19 I-League.
