Somerset of Bermuda get their last chance tonight to gain a point in the CONCACAF Inter-Club Champion of Champions football tournament when they go against Trinidad and Tobago Regiment at 7.00 at the National Stadium.

Both teams will be completing their fixtures with this game.

Beaten in all their encounters the Bermudan team seem likely candidates for the competition's "wooden spoon", the the undefeated Trinidadians, who have five points could well become winners of the tourney with a win in this match.

Somerset are a much better team than their record in the competition gives them credit for. However, they only have themselves to be blamed for the position they find themselves as in their matches they repeatedly failed to convert many scoring chances into goals which could have brought them victories.

This is mainly due to anxiety in shooting on the part of their forwards.

They have useful players in Rudolph Smith, Randolph Smith and Randolph Horton, who could be key figures in stopping the successful run of the Trinidad Regiment given the support by their teammates.
