Two more trialists will join the Dynamo for training on Friday, as Jamaicans François Swaby and JeVaughn Watson will put on Dynamo orange for a late morning training session at the Methodist Training Center near Reliant Stadium. Swaby and Watson join countryman Steven Morrissey and Trinidad & Tobago midfielder Lester Peltier as trialists in Dynamo camp.

Midfielder Watson, 27, has six caps for Jamaica and currently captains Sporting Central in Jamaica. He appeared in three friendlies for the Reggae Boyz in 2010, facing Argentina, South Africa, and Costa Rica. Forward Swaby, 22, ranks second in Jamaica in goalscoring - behind fellow trialist Steven Morrissey - with nine goals for Sporting Central this year.

Sporting Central recently advanced to the end-of-round final for the second round of play in Jamaica's Premier League, but Watson missed the match due to yellow card suspension and Sporting fell 1-0 in extra time to Morrissey's Portmore United.

All four trialists could appear in Saturday's scrimmage against HBU, set to kick off at 10 a.m. at Sorrels Field on the HBU campus. The players are likely to remain with the Dynamo through the February 12 friendly
against FC Dallas in Corpus Christi. Last year, the Dynamo signed
Jamaican Lovel Palmer from his club, Harbour View, after two successful trial stints.
