After serving a one-match ban, Nicholas Hamilton says that the experience is behind him, and he is ready to help Cavalier progress from its two leg quarter-final tie in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) against Tivoli Gardens tomorrow at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex.

"I missed one game against Arnett Gardens," Hamilton said. "I was on the bench for the game against Reno, and the coach (Rudolph Speid) said I showed a bad vibe, so I was suspended against Arnett."

However, he said this vibe Speid picked up was misinterpreted. "I was not showing a bad vibe, as I sat on the bench. But, as a player, I wanted to play in the game. This is my first time in the play-off, so I am happy to be in the squad for that game," he said.

Hamilton said that although his team has an average age of 18, it has enough talent and international experience to get by fierce rivals Tivoli.

"Our team is inexperienced in the RSPL, but we have players who have represented Jamaica at the Under-17 and Under-20 levels. There are also players like Alex Marshall, Chevone Marsh and Kaheem Parris who have all played for the senior national team," Hamilton pointed out.

"We have a lot of players in the squad that are able to get the job done. We have to remain focused and go there for a good result. As teammates, we interact with each other, and the older players like myself also encourage the younger players. We share a good vibe in the camp. People say we are young, but the team will be ready and taking it step by step," he said.
