Ryan Miller, who piloted RJRGLEANER Communications Group to a 1-0 win against Wisynco in the Western Sports/Kingston and St Andrew Business House Football Association League on Sunday at the Bell-Chung Oval, says that the team is stronger this season.

Miller scored the all-important goal from the penalty spot in added time.

"It was a tough game against a team that we beat 6-0 last season. They came and played physical. We were not impressive, but it was a good result. We got off to a good start," Miller told said after the game.

The RJRGLEANER team reached the semi-final stage in the last two seasons and have been strengthened this season with some experienced players who have played in the Red Stripe Premier League.

"It is a great feeling to get a win in the first game. We will have a positive mindset going forward. We got in some great players, some who have played in the Premier League, and they can help us to win the title this season. The players will have to work hard as some of our opponents also have great players. We can't relax; it is a work in progress," added the former national youth and St George's College Manning Cup star.

"We have experienced players who want to do good. I have full confidence in the squad assembled. We went to back-to-back semi-finals in the last two seasons, so our goal is to win the title this season. We have the team to win," said Miller, who, himself, represented the University of the West Indies in the last Red Stripe Premier League season.
