RUFC - Brogan Is Buzzin'!

RUFC - Brogan Is Buzzin'!

Rotherham United's local hero, Stephen Brogan couldn't keep the grin off his face as he was interviewed by MillersWorld after the team got all three points at Port Vale on Saturday, despite having a broken nose!

Paddy, as he is known to Millers' fans, suffered an horrific injury in February last year when he collided with the MK Dons' 'keeper and ended up with a double fracture of his leg. The twenty-one year old spent months building up his fitness and, after fourteen months on the sidelines, he came on to rapturous applause from the stands at Don Valley, for the last few minutes of the final game of last season. Since then he's been getting his fitness back in the reserves with the odd few minutes here and there for the first team.

Brogan scored the Millers' first goal of the game, with Nicky Law getting the winner in time added on. 'I thought we were pushing all the time in the second half and deserved the three points,' Brogan said. 'It's always a good feeling to get a last minute winner and it makes my goal look that much better!

'I've been waiting for my chance and, after Kevin (Ellison) had to go off in the first fifteen minutes or so, I got a good run out today. And scoring was brilliant. My Dad and Sister were here and it was brilliant to get on and score in front of the fans. Moral is high at the moment and I'm buzzin', we're all buzzin'!'

But Brogan didn't come out of the game unscathed after a collision with a Vale player. Pointing to his nose, he said, 'I think I've broke it. It's agony.'
