Last year s T&T Football Associ-
ation FA Trophy runner-up Central
FC will begin its hunt for a return to
the prestigious tournament final
when it faces Super League outfit FC
Santa Rosa at Woodford Lodge,
Chaguanas from 6.30 pm.
The winner of the clash between
Central FC, the recent First Citizens
Cup winners, and Santa Rosa will get
a round-of-32 date with the winner
of another preliminary round contest,
Coosal s Las Lomas versus University

Recreation Ground, Cunupia, from
However, for today s contest the
Central "Sharks" coach, Englishman
Terry Fenwick will have to do without
main striker Rundell Winchester and
goalkeeper Marvin Phillip, both away
on international duty with the Soca
Warriors in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
In the two remaining preliminary
round matches, Secondary Schools
Football League South Zone and Big-
Five champion Presentation College

puna Titans from 3.30 pm at Skinner
Park, San Fernando on Sunday and a
day later, Super League club, Malabar
FC faces East Zone SSFL league win-
ner St Augustine Secondary School
from 6 pm at UTT, Arima.
While the tournament is set to kick
off today, there is yet to be confir-
mation on whether or not teams will
once again compete with any prize
money at stake, as they did last year
when Neal & Massy Caledonia repeat-
ed as champion with a 2-0 win over
Central FC, for its third FA crown.
Last season, just under a year ago,
the FA Trophy ran without cash incen-
tive, and clubs were only aware of the
situation a month into the tourna-
Back then, TTFA president Ray-
mond Tim Kee, who took up the post
in November 2012, was quoted as say-
ing: "There is no money for the FA
(winners), just the conventional
medals and trophies."
But that won t be the case this sea-
son assured TTFA general secretary,
"There would be prize money,"
Phillips said Tuesday.
"It s just a matter of the amount."
In the past, the winners prize for
the FA Trophy was $80,000.
"There are ongoing discussions with
the tournaments committee headed
by Neville Ferguson on this matter,"
"Mr Raymond Tim Kee is driving
this issue. He is particularly keen on
providing a substantial amount."
He said, "After the last cashless FA
Trophy, that was something Tim Kee
vowed not to retain. The FA Cup under
his watch will have a prize."
