RUFC - Paddy playing for his future

RUFC - Paddy playing for his future

Rotherham United defender, Stephen Brogan was happy to get ninety minutes under his belt the other night against Alfreton after being in the wilderness somewhat last season.

Paddy, who suffered an horrific leg break in February 2008, was sidelined for fourteen months and then couldn't quite push his way back into the team. It seemed inevitable that he'd be on his way out of Rotherham but, it seems that manager, Ronnie Moore wants to give him a chance.

Speaking to Dom Howson of The Star, the twenty-two year old said, 'It was nice to get my first ninety minutes of pre-season the other night and I was pleased with my performance.

'Hopefully, I showed Ronnie that I am capable of playing in the team, but I know I need to keep performing well in training and in the friendlies to get a place in the side.

'If I don't start a game I will be raring to come on from the subs bench to make an impression.'

Speaking about not being picked to play at Wembley, he said, 'I don't want that experience again. I will just have to train as hard as I can and hopefully that will get me more involved. It's up to me now to force my way into Ronnie's team.

'This is a big year in my career and I know I'm playing for my future.

'I love playing for Rotherham and I will give it my all but it may be that I have to look elsewhere to make sure I have a future in the game.'
