RUFC - A Look Back at Last Season

RUFC - A Look Back at Last Season

A short month and only four games for the Millers, with the first two games of the month being postponed because of bad weather and pitch conditions, one at Don Valley against Bury and the away game at Barnet. So the first game of the month for the Millers was Gillingham, at Don Valley, on Valentine`s Day. Jamie Clarke, making his debut, after signing from Blackburn until the end of the season, put the Millers ahead on twenty-five minutes, with Jamie Green sealing the victory ten minutes from time.

The following Tuesday, the Millers took on Scunthorpe in the return leg of the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy regional final. A win here meant a trip to Wembley for the club. Unfortunately, in front of, what was to be the highest crowd of the season at Don Valley, the Millers lost 1-0, with the Millers never really looking like getting one goal never mind three.

A long trip to top of the table Wycombe on a Monday night followed, with the game being televised live. The game was a bit of a scrappy affair but the Millers battled to get a point from a 0-0 draw. This was followed by a good away win at Sincil Bank with Micky Cummins getting the only goal of the game on the sixty-fifth minute, although Millers` hearts beat a bit faster in the final minute when Lincoln`s Janos Kovacs thundered a shot against the crossbar.

With the four games this month, Vital had four Men of the Month! Jamie Green got the vote against Gillingham, Ian Sharps in the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy game, 'keeper, Andy Warrington for the televised game at Wycombe and Jamie Clarke for the Lincoln game
