Former Waterhouse playmaker Romario Campbell could not have imagined a better start to life at Effortville than he had during Humble Lion's 2-1 win over Boys' Town in Sunday's opening Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) clash.

The 27-year-old, who moved to Humble Lion during the off season, is on a mission to rediscover his best form and help the Clarendon team win the Premier League.

He also wants to get back into the national team and has been doing lots of work behind the scenes with the aim of returning to his best.

An 85th-minute winner against Boys' Town was the perfect start.

"This is the second time I am scoring on debut against Boys' Town. I played them when I moved to Waterhouse on my debut and scored. It is always a plus scoring on your debut for a new club, and I am looking forward to the season. Hopefully, we can make the final and lift the cup," he told STAR Sports.

Campbell admitted that it wasn't his best performance but said that the work he put in should have a big influence on the season.

"It's my first game. I just have to go back to training, work hard, continue doing extra work on my own, and hopefully, I can improve my game," he said.

"I plan to make a big change this season. I want to improve my ability. I know what I can do once I am fit, so I am really looking forward to this season. I really want to get back into the national team as my aim is to play at a next level," he stated.

The former Norman Manley star is now seriously focused on achieving his long and-short-term football targets and is doing the background work to achieve that.

"When I am on my own, I try to put in something, like going to the sands to run. I want to finish the season on 17 goals. I set myself to score seven in the first round, six in the second, and five in the third round," he said.
