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

RUFC - Moore is pleased that Brogan is frustrated

Rotherham United defender Stephen Brogan needs more confidence, his Manager, Ronnie Moore says.

Twenty-one year old Brogan, a product of the Youth Academy at Rotherham, battled his way back from an horrific injury he received two years ago this month and he, like the majority of the fans, imagined he would 'walk' back into the side once he was fit.

And, although he did have a run in the team, he hasn't played or featured on the bench since the FA Cup defeat to Luton in early December.

Football is a frustrating job if you're not in the team and the young man showed his frustration by something he posted on facebook last weekend.

But his Manager said, if the player wasn't frustrated then he would be worried.

'We've a lot of left-sided players here,' Moore told The Advertiser, 'and Brogan has to prove that he's better than Kevin Ellison and Gavin Gunning.

'He's an attacking minded full-back but I'm not sure he can do the full-back job like he did before. He's turning more into a left-winger.'

Brogan scored for the reserves this week in their four-one win over Grimsby Town at Don Valley and Moore said, 'He's scoring in the reserves but he needs more confidence and games.

'Whether it's a habit or not, Stephen still has a limp from his injury although things are going on in the background to get him back to full fitness.'

Stephen's name was included in a list Moore circulated to other clubs of players available for loans but says only one side, Blue Square Premier League Gateshead, enquired about him.

Stephen did become famous, however, this week, when he appeared on the Channel 4 TV Programme 'Come Dine With Me' alongside the Chuckle Brothers as a mystery guest, and one of the shows female chefs asked to feel his legs! Without flinching, Stephen duly obliged!
