RUFC - A look back at last season

The first game of 2009 ended in a one all draw with Ian Sharps bundling the ball over the line on the ninetieth minute, after Dagenham had taken the lead at Don Valley just after half-time. The next game at Luton was called off because of bad weather so the next team to make the trip to Don Valley was Bournemouth. A stunning goal from Mark Hudson on eighteen minutes gave the Millers all three points, with the only other real incident of the game coming in the sixty-fourth minute when Danny Hollands was sent off for a second bookable offence.

The following Tuesday was the first leg of the area final of the Northern section of the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy and over two thousand of the Millers` faithful travelled to Glanford Park to take on Scunthorpe. Unfortunately, the Iron were too strong for the visitors and took a two-nil lead into the second leg.

The Millers next two league games were away and both ended in defeat, the first at Grimsby when the final score line was 3-0 and the second a 1-0 loss at Darlington. On the final day of the month, Macclesfield were at Don Valley and the last three defeats were put to the back of the team and fans` minds when goals from Mark Hudson and Reuben Reid gave the home side all three points.

Dale Tonge and Andy Warrington were joint Vital posters Men of the Month for the first month of the year
