Key Attributes

Lawrence is a fierce defensive midfielder in football, but he is also known for being a patient and modest player.

Climax had to wait on the substitution bench at Salgaocar Sports Club, his first club, for a long time, according to Franky Barreto, a senior Indian football player from Goa.

Despite this, Barreto claims that he was never seen complaining at coaches and was always modest and appreciative to them, learning from other players when they were on the field.

Lawrence owes a debt of gratitude to Marcus Pacheco, his Salgaocar Club coach, who he credits with nurturing the hidden talent within him.

He has also been doing well with Dempo Club, contributing to their most recent success in the National Football League (NFL) season and the first season of the I League, allowing them to qualify for the AFC Champions League 2009 Group Stage. In November 2009, the League was held in Tokyo’s National Stadium.
