Cavalier will seek to set history by becoming the first team to finish the Jamaica Football Federation Confederation play-offs by winning every match, when they challenge Volvo United at Drax Hall, starting at 3:30 p.m.

The football match is one of two that will signal an end to the play-offs, with second-place Savannah playing against New Green at Brook's Park, Mandeville, also at 3:30 p.m.

"The team believes it can create history to be the first team to win every match in the play-offs," said David Laylor, coach of Cavalier, which have maximum 15 points from five games and have already qualified for next season's Premier League.

Cavaliers are celebrating their 50th anniversary and this, Laylor says, has kept his team motivated.

"Celebrating our 50th anniversary is a boost to the team's confidence and we hope to continue setting a good foundation," said Laylor.

Cavalier now look forward to the Red Stripe Premier League, a dream come through for Laylor, and an opportunity to make their mark.

"It's a dream come true, the reality of being in the National League after this long time and we hope to make Cavalier the number-one team both in the region and islandwide," said Laylor, whose club endured an 18-year wait to return to the top flight.
