THE lure of big money rendered the 2005 T&T Pro Bowl a non-vintage renewal of last year's final despite the presence of Vibe CT105 W. Connection and CL Financial San Juan Jabloteh, the teams that contested such a thriller 12 months ago.
NATIONAL coach Leo Beenhakker has allowed Trinidad and Tobago footballers David Atiba Charles and Otis Seaton to play for their respective clubs in tonight's T&T Pro Bowl final, which could see the winners of the tournament walking away from the Manny Ramjohn Stadium, Marabella, with as much as $100,000.
CL Financial San Juan Jabloteh have not won a major title since 2003, when they won the Pro League title—but come Friday 27th May—the San Juan Giants will be putting everything on the line as they will be seeking revenge—when they come face to face with their long time rivals W Connection in the 2005 Pro Bowl Finals.
AS club champions of Trinidad and Tobago, the greatest testimony National Quarries North East Stars could have made as to the quality of football in the T&T Pro League was when they beat Dutchman Leo Beenhakker's senior national team 2-0 on Tuesday in a training match at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.
W Connection, the T&T Professional Football League's Pro Bowl Cup champion team, will meet National Quarries North-East Stars in one of three quarterfinals.
