THE TOBAGO Football Association (TFA) ends its 1997 season with the final round of the Premier Division 'Big Four' competition tonight at Shaw Park.

Marquis Jewellers Georgia who are on five points from two matches, needs just one point with their encounter against the pointless Stokely Vale to ensure they are crowned 'Big Four' champions. This match is expected to kick off from 7pm.

A win for Georgia will make them firm favourites for the TFA 'team of the year' having already secured the FA and League trophies.

Two hours earlier, Roxborough Lakers takes on Bethel United. Both teams are locked on two points from two matches with identical goal difference.

Should Georgia lose, Stokely Vale would end on three points and could leave the winner of the Lakers/Bethel clash also on five points. The winner would be decided on goal difference.

Meanwhile, the annual Over 35 Soccer Friendly between Essex Old Boys of St James and Old Magics of St Georges Parish, Tobago will be played at the River Bank Oval on Saturday.

Both squads who are vying for the Eutris Thornhill trophy are expected to have several former national players on display.

Hollis Davis, Junior Quashie, Kirt Jack and Durlyn Lucas are some of the Magics unit while Vernon Fingal, Russel Techiera, Bobby Banfield and Dexter Sandy are part of the Essex team.
