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

RUFC - Circuit 'Brogan was driven by desire'

Rotherham United's physio, Denis Circuit, watched Stephen Brogan, come off the bench on Saturday against Exeter and says that it is difficult to describe how he felt.

'I was so pleased for him,' Denis told Les Payne of The Star. 'Though, I think I was probably more emotional when he played his first reserve game.'

Denis is the one who has been with Stephen since his horrific injury back in February 2008, when he collided with MK Dons' goalkeeper, Willy Gueret and suffered a double fracture of his leg. He's the one who has mopped up the tears and helped him through the last fifteen months.

'I've seen a player who has been down for many months after suffering the complications of this horrendous injury and it's been a long long road back but he has worked so very hard.

'When we first started his rehabilitation there were a few tears but he's shown an unbelievable attitude throughout and it was fantastic seeing him back in the first team. He's been so brave because at one stage I think he doubted that he would get back.'

Stephen received a magnificent reception from the Rotherham supporters at Don Valley on Saturday when he came on with five minutes to go. Afterwards, at the Supporters Player of the Year Awards he also recieved a 'pat on the back' from his Manager, Mark Robins, who gave the defender a lot of praise for the work he's put in.

'I don't mind admitting I was proud when he ran onto that pitch on Saturday,' Denis carried on, 'and before the July timescale we'd set. This will give him such a lift. But most of this is due to the fact that Stephen Brogan has the attitude that he has which has been a massive plus on his way to recovery.'
