RUFC - Brogan set to sign new contract

RUFC - Brogan set to sign new contract

Rotherham United defender, and long term injury victim, Stephen Brogan, can, at last, see a light at the end of the tunnel. It's fourteen months since he broke his leg at MK Dons and, after surgery, and spending many hours in the gym, he was captain of the Reserve's game this week against Hartlepool at Don Valley and played for almost all the game. He's pencilled in the the next Reserve game against Bradford next week and, if he comes through that, then he hopes a first team call-up won't be far away.

'We've already started talking about next season and I'm going to get a contract but my focus is on my football. I had a meeting with Mark Robins and told him not to write me off this season. I've worked hard all year so I can get a couple of first team appearances in because that would do so much for my frame of mind. And I could go into the summer knowing I'd played a game and with the fans knowing I am back. Obviously, it's the manager's decision if he picks me or not but just being back in the squad would be great. I don't see a reason why he shouldn't pick me, after all, you want to get your best player back in!

'Seriously, I've missed being involved on matchdays although I haven't been put on one side, you just don't feel part of the team. I'm a Rotherham lad and I like Rotherham United but being a spectator is horrible and if it was up to me, I wouldn't even go and watch (now you know how we feel, Paddy!!!).

'Getting back this season would be great for me, my family and my friends who have all been rooting for me and I want to do something just for them. I know it would make them proud to see me run onto the field. My recovery has taken longer than first anticipated and there has been a lot of complications with things not going quite as planned. The postponements have been good for me really because there are still eight games left and three or four appearances would be great.

'I will be working hard this summer until I am as fit as anyone else and then I want to hit the ground running next season.'

All at Vital wish Stephen all the best and hope to see him in the first team very soon
