IRVINE, California – Trinidad & Tobago international Trevin Caesar will remain in the United States for the 2016 season, signing Wednesday with USL side Orange County Blues FC.
The 26-year-old forward played last year with the Austin Aztex, scoring a team-high nine goals in 28 games.
“In Trevin we are signing a player with great experience,” said Orange County Blues head coach and general manager Oliver Wyss. “He is a full international and has played many games at the NASL and USL level. He will bring pace and energy to our front line and will look to excite our fans.”
Caesar has earned eight caps for T&T, appearing most recently as a late substitute in the Soca Warriors’ scoreless draw with the visiting USA in a World Cup qualifier on November 17, 2015. His lone goal came in a 6-1 win over the Dominican Republic in a Caribbean Cup, second round encounter on October 8, 2014.
In the 2012/13 edition of the Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League, Caesar played in three matches for Caledonia AIA.
“I’m very excited to join the Orange County Blues for next season,” said Caesar, who won the 2014 North American Soccer League championship as a member of the San Antonio Scorpions. “I’m ready for a new opportunity and I can’t wait to return to the field.”
The Orange County Blues captured the 2015 USL Western Conference regular-season crown, before falling to the LA Galaxy II in the conference semifinals, 2-0.
