WITH his teenage years behind him, the time has come for Andrew Campbell to put his stamp on the Brisbane Bandits next season.

The season just completed was Campbell's third with the team and he has reason to feel ready to step into a leadership role.

"Next year will be my fourth so I'm not a rookie anymore," he said.

"Hopefully I can contribute in a leadership role."

Campbell is confident his form has reflected his growing seniority in the ranks.

"I think I've improved," he said.

"I got a lot more games this season.

"I believe I'm hitting much better and my defence - I've played centre field for the last couple of weeks."

The move from left-field shows the team management is willing to place more responsibility on Campbell's 20-year-old shoulders.

"I want to play centre-field," he said.

"I feel I played well there. Centre-field is the boss of the outfield."

Campbell heads to the US on March 7 to join spring training with the Cleveland Indians in Arizona.

Last year, following US spring training, Campbell spent a short season with the Mahoney Valley Scrappers in Ohio.

This season he hopes for an upgrade to a long-season contract with either Lake County or the North Carolina Mudcats.
