RUFC -Hursty talks about his new role

Rotherham United's new Young People's Participation Officer, Paul Hurst says that he is looking forward to returning to the Millers.

Hursty played over four hundred and fifty games in the fifteen years he was with us and no one has ever given such loyal service over the years. And, now, it is to continue.

Speaking to The Advertiser, the thirty-five year old said, 'Sport has been a big part of my life and so has this football club and this job fitted in with everything I was looking for.

'I'll be managing a team of coaches that are already at the club and getting out into the community and working with the soccer camps and so on. The biggest part of my role will be to oversee the people delivering the various sessions.'

Paul is currently working at a local comprehensive school, Rawmarsh, as a teaching assistant and has to work his notice there so will start his new job with the Millers at the end of March.

Also, alongside another former Miller, Rob Scott, Paul is joint-manager with non-league side Boston United, which he will still carry on doing.

Paul said, 'I went on record as saying that management and coaching wasn't for me - but I've surprised myself and I've really enjoyed it. I'd like to one day manage in the league.

'I'm hard working, which I proved by doing a degree in Sports Media while I was still playing and this is just another case of proving that.'
