Point Fortin Civic attacker Marcus Joseph and North East Stars striker Trevin Caesar will hope to take their scoring boots to Couva tomorrow on Tuesday May 19 when the Digicel Pro League season comes to a halt at the Ato Boldon Stadium.
At present, Joseph, who is played in a handful of positions for Civic this season, is the League’s top scorer with 15 goals although the diminutive Caesar trails by just one goal.
Fifth placed North East Stars face ninth placed St Ann’s Rangers from 6 pm while fourth placed Civic meets sixth placed Caledonia AIA from 8 pm at the same venue.
Caesar is tied with Central FC’s Willis Plaza and DIRECTV W Connection’s Joevin Jones at 14 goals but the latter two players have already finished their regular season.
The local domestic season ends at 8 pm on Friday night when Police FC tackles W Connection in the Digicel Pro Bowl final. Connection, who is the reigning Pro League champion, is also the Pro Bowl title holder.
Before the final team trophy is distributed on Friday, Joseph and Caesar have a score to settle as they vie to take Defence Force striker Devorn Jorsling’s place as local football’s most prolific scorer.

But Trevin will be a nightmare for Rangers… let’s see!
It’s good to know both are in the national team setup. My money on Joseph !
