Veteran midfielder Marvin Oliver will mark his return to San Juan Jabloteh in front of home supporters when the “San Juan Kings” welcome Point Fortin Civic from 4:30pm on Saturday at the Barataria Recreation Ground.

The 40-year-old former Trinidad and Tobago international midfielder’s registration was completed today, giving Jabloteh head coach Keith Jeffrey the greenlight for Saturday’s fixture—Jabloteh’s first return to a community field in 17 years. 

Defending Digicel Pro League champions Central FC had issued Oliver a termination letter on January 25, claiming it was based on the player’s request.

Back then Oliver denied seeking termination. Oliver said he was being frozen out and simply questioned what the club would do if another club was willing to have him on loan.

Central later requested a formal meeting with the player, but Oliver, a member of Central’s squad since inception in 2012, said he felt mistreated and will not explore a return to the club.

A decision by the Player Status Committee this month has allowed Oliver, the 2007 Toyota/Pro League player, free movement to another club.

Oliver, who represented Jabloteh between 2008 and 2012, and is the holder of a Concacaf licence for grassroots coaching, has been signed by his hometown club Jabloteh for the remainder of the 2015/16 season.
