P/Fortin goes second; Central unveils four new signings in goalless draw

Central FC unveiled another round of new signings in Mahaica Oval this evening but they could only muster a goalless draw away to Point Fortin Civic in today’s only Digicel Pro League encounter.

Central coach Terry Fenwick gave starting roles to new signings Trinidad and Tobago international striker Willis Plaza, ex-World Youth Cup captain Leston Paul, former Defence Force utility player Samuel Delice and ex-national senior team defender Yohance Marshall alongside another recent acquisition and “Soca Warriors” playmaker, Ataullah Guerra.

Another midfielder schemer, Sean De Silva, who played alongside Paul at the 2007 Under-17 and 2009 Under-20 World Cups, is expected to join the “Couva Sharks” roster next week after a five-year stint in the United States with the College of Charleston and lower league team, Minnesota United.

But they join a team that has lost its momentum since a maiden top flight trophy in the First Citizens Cup last October. Central has drawn all three League games this year and lies in sixth place in the nine team standings; albeit just three points below second place and with a game in hand.

On the other hand, Point Fortin has been enjoying a remarkable revival and today’s point saw Civic climb to second place on goal difference. Just two weeks ago, coach Reynold Carrington’s men were only one spot off the bottom of the table.

It might have been even better for Civic as 22-year-old talisman Marcus Joseph dragged a second half penalty wide. Although Central might have nicked all three points at the death too as substitute Rundell Winchester hit the bar.

In the end, both teams might be relatively happy with a point each.

Central can now boast of one of the League’s strongest teams on paper and Fenwick will hope to get into gear, sooner rather than later. But, for now, it is the more modestly assembled Civic team that sits in the coveted second spot behind runaway leaders, DIRECTV W Connection.

The top two Pro League teams at the end of the season will participate in the 2015 CONCACAF club competition.
