'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - Hurst 'I'm still fit'

Rotherham United's Paul Hurst has been told that he is no longer needed at Millmoor, after fifteen seasons with the club.

But Hurst, who holds the record for the most appearances for the Millers, still thinks he has plenty to offer.

Speaking to The Advertiser, where he has been working on the sports desk, Hursty said, 'I still believe I can play in the football league.'

Recently, the thirty-three year old has been plying his trade with Blue Square Premier side, Burton Albion but that ended in disappointment this week when they missed out on a trip to Wembley in the play-off semi-finals,although Paul wouldn't have been able to play as his loan deal runs out before the final.

'I've only missed two games through injury this season,' Hurst said, 'but with the stage I'm at, any decision of a new contract will be taken with family and location in mind.

'I've played fifteen games for Burton and was disappointed that they didn't get to Wembley.'

Although he never gave up hope, when he was told he wasn't being retained at Millmoor it didn't come as a shock to him. 'The manager wants to go down a younger route and that's fair enough, although I do believe people make too much of age. I feel I've got a lot to offer and experience too.'

Manager, Mark Robins said, 'Paul can still do a job but we have Stephen Brogan on the left with young Jamie Green coming through too.

'Anything Paul needs to do we will help him in any way we can - he is a good lad and we wish him all the best.'
