RUFC - A look through the archives for 6 April

Let's take a look back at what happened on this day . . . 6 April

6 April 2009

On this day, one year ago, Millers Striker, Reuben Reid, was named the Powerade March Player of the Month, with judge, Chris Kamara, saying he had scored some fine goals. The Vital Man of the Month for March 2009 was announced too and it actually went to two players, Andy Warrington and Nick Fenton. We also found out on this day that Rotherham United had been granted a Silver Award by the Football League Trust for their work in the community.

6 April 2008

It was on this day that Mark Robins was announced as Manager of the club and he admitted to Radio Sheffield that he actually knew he had the job yesterday. Speculation was rife over who would be his number two, although most people were going for John Breckin.


It was also the day that Michael Keane answered the fans who said he didn`t want to play in a struggling side, saying that he was taking too long to come back from injury. Michael replied to them, saying, 'That couldn`t be further from the truth. I was working until 3 o`clock doing extra work and tried to rush back too soon which caused a breakdown. I had a scan which showed the full seriousness of the problem. I still want to play and haven`t given up on us stopping up.`

6 April 2006

On this day four years ago, then Rotherham captain, Colin Murdock was confident of staying up. After battling for survival both on and off the field and having a new Chairman, Denis Coleman, Murdock said that the mood in the camp was good. 'I think we can avoid relegation,` Murdock said, 'our away form has been poor but if we can win all our games at home, I believe we can do it.`

6 April 2004

The last time the Millers played on 6th April was in 2004 against Crystal Palace at Millmoor. Julian Gray put Palace one up in the eleventh minute and Neil Shipperley got a second sixteen minutes later. Michael Proctor gave the Millers a glimmer of hope five minutes from time but Palace took all three points.

6 April 1965

This was the last victory the Millers got on a 6th April and it was at Millmoor against Leyton Orient. John Halliwell, Keith Pring and Brian Tiler scored that day in front of a crowd of 6,795.
