Ryan Miller, last season's top scorer in the Corporate Area Super League for Premier League-promoted Cavalier, made his mark for University of the West Indies (UWI) on Sunday, scoring twice in a 3-1 win against Humble Lion at Effortville.

Miller bid Cavalier farewell after the Premier League playoffs and has started on a high with UWI, drawing a penalty on his debut before Sunday's brace against Humble Lion.  

"It is a massive two goals for my new club," said Miller, who plays in the attacking midfield role.

"I love to score goals. That's all I want to do when on the field, regardless of the competition, it's to score goals and also assist," the 20-year-old former St George's College and national youth star added.

Although not a quick player, Miller's strength is to create passes and move into space. He is a prolific scorer and was a key player in Cavalier's promotion run last season, winning the golden boot for most goals in the Super League which Cavalier won.

"I love to score goals and like to watch former players like Thierry Henry, Ronaldo of Brazil," he said.

Miller outlined that UWI are strong and he wants to keep playing well as well as scoring in order to keep his place in the team.

"I love the UWI team because the players and coaches believe in my ability. The players have a good vibe, always supporting each other, even if not playing," Miller said, noting that the team always tries to do better each season since playing in the nation's top league.

"Every season, UWI does better, so the aim is to at least make the final this season. I think we have the team to win the competition but we will take it game by game," he added.

Miller will next face his community club, Boys' Town, and he is ready to continue scoring.

"It is a good feeling because it is my hometown team and I know they (spectators) will be saying things. I know what to expect, so the key is to remain focused," he pointed out.

Meanwhile, Miller ,who represented Jamaica at the youth level, is working towards a call to the senior team.

"I have worked with coach Whitmore before in the Under-23s, so I am willing to work with him again. I am working hard towards my goal." he said.
