RUFC - Brogan won't be rushed

RUFC - Brogan won't be rushed

Rotherham United fans are eagerly awaiting the return of young defender, Stephen Brogan, from a broken leg.

Paddy suffered a double leg fracture ten months ago while playing against MK Dons and is now battling to get his fitness back.

Manager, Mark Robins, refuses to say when the twenty-year old will be back and he told The Advertiser, 'We won't be putting a time-scale on it. If we do that and Stephen doesn't meet it then he will be disppointed. We are trying to help him as much as we can and it's a matter of keeping focussed. It's a mental battle as much as anything else.'

Despite not playing since February, Stephen was the Supporters' Club 'Young Player of the Year' last season and was also given the 'Mitch Cassell Trophy' which is a joint trophy given by Millers Mad and Vital Rotherham to a young Millers player who we think has worked hard for the team - and there's no doubt about it, when Paddy's on the pitch he certainly gives his all.

I, for one, agree with Mark Robins over this. I think it would be wrong to put him back in the team before he's fully fit. But, when he does come back, it will be like having a new man in the side!
