Loose Cassette

I have fitted a new SRAM PG970 cassette to the Shimano M475 rear hub on my Trance. There seems to be a little play in the cassette, the locking ring is nice & tight & I didn't notice any play in the free hub. The original cassette was a PG950 so I guess there shouldn't be any compatibility problems with SRAM cassette on a Shimano hub.
Unfortunately I put the old cassette in the recycling bin (badly worn with broken teeth) so can't put it back on to see if that had any play.
Does anyone have any ideas? It shifts nicely enough but the creaking noise could get annoying.
