Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) general secretary Sheldon Phillips confirmed yesterday that the 2013 TTFA FA Trophy tournament will have cash prizes for its top three finishers.

The FA Trophy winners will receive $50,000 while the runner-up will bank $30,000 and the second runner-up is due $20,000. It will be only the second cash pay-out made by the local body for the country’s oldest football competition in over four years. So far, the TTFA has declined to reveal the identity of its sponsor.

Caledonia AIA won the last two FA titles but there will be a new champion in 2013 as the “Eastern Stallions” were dumped out of the competition by Point Fortin Civic in the Round of 16.

The remaining eight teams with a chance of silverware are Pro League outfits DIRECTV W Connection, Point Fortin Civic, North East Stars and Central FC and Super League clubs Guaya United and Malabar FC as well as Southern Football Association (SFA) team Petrotrin Palo Seco and Northern Football Association club Queen’s Park Cricket Club FC.

W Connection has won the FA Trophy three times before but its last win was 11 years ago while North East Stars lifted the crown a decade ago in 2003.

None of the other active clubs have lifted the crown before although Central FC coach Terry Fenwick twice steered San Juan Jabloteh to the FA in 2005 and 2011 and United Petrotrin won it twice with its last triumph back in 1997.
