Cavalier move paying off for Price in Red Stripe Premier League

first_imgCavalier SC won the battle of the east on Monday night as they stopped their more storied neighbours and rivals Harbour View 1-0 at the Harbour View Mini-Stadium, and in the process, moved farther away from relegation. The victory and the gains that came with it were due largely to a beautiful left-footed strike from distance by Cleon Price in the 50th minute. It resulted directly from a move where Harbour View failed to capitalise on a scoring opportunity and the ball ended up with Price on a quick counter. “I am feeling overjoyed to know that I scored the winning goal for my team and that we came out victorious,” said an obviously pleased Price at the end of the game. The strike was only Price’s fourth of the season and his second for Cavalier, following a move from Portmore United in the January transfer window. Already, Price is seeing the benefits of his move. “I am happy with the move. I am happy with the players and the club. This team is a good team and I think I can move forward from here. “I left Portmore because I wanted a change, a change to see if I could get more playing time and more eyes on me to see if I could get in the national team,” the 21-year-old former Dinthill striker said. The comfort he feels at Cavalier Price said goes beyond the field and it inspires him to do even better. “I am more appreciated now. The fans are really nice to me. They really appreciate me coming to their team and are giving me the support,” he said. While he is happy with his performance and the reception that he has received, Price is still unsure if the loan move – which runs until September 2016 – will become a permanent deal. “It is not a long-term move. It is a loan until September. But right now, I have not decided what will happen. I guess we just have to wait and see,” said the player who is a handful for defenders because of his physique, pace, movement, and skill. Since being at Cavalier, Price’s returns have not been enough to turn the heads of the national coaches. “I have received no indication as yet that I am getting the kind of looks that I need. I guess I have to play harder, score more goals, because the league is very competitive. We have a lot of strikers who are scoring a lot of goals, so I have to be in that rank before the national coach can give me a look,” Price said. With eight games to go in the regular season, Price promised to make a statement. “Great things can be expected from me for the remaining games. There will be more goals from me and more victories for Cavalier and we will be staying up for sure,” Price declared of his team, which now sits in seventh position and eight points above the relegation zone.last_img read more
