RUFC - Robins 100 Up!

RUFC - Robins 100 Up!

Rotherham United Manager, Mark Robins, takes charge of his one hundredth Millers game tomorrow afternoon and it would be great if the result was the same as his first game in charge!

Robins was Youth Team Coach at Millmoor when he was given the Manager's job after Alan Knill, (now at Bury), was shown the door. His first game was in March 2007 at Millmoor against Bradford City and the Millers won four-one. But, a lot of water has gone under the bridge since then - administration, deducted points, new owners, new ground.

'It feels ages ago since that game with Bradford,' Robins told The Advertiser. 'Like a lot of clubs we've had our tribulations and we hit rock bottom but now we've started to rise. I am sure there will be more difficult times ahead because that's the nature of the game but it's how you come through them that count. Of course I've made mistakes but as long as you don't keep repeating them that's OK.

'We're all pushing in the same direction here and I want to take the club as far as I can which hopefully will oversee the move to a new training ground and a new stadium and real success on the field.

'I am proud of what we are doing here and I'm proud to be manager.'

Our stats man, Zipadeedoodah, has been looking at Robins' ninety-nine games in charge of the Millers....
