RUFC - Cress needs to emulate his heroes
Rotherham United`s Ryan Cresswell isn`t daunted by the aims of the club he`s joined this season which is the same club that he supported as a boy.
'The aim is to get Rotherham United out of League Two as quickly as possible,` the tall central defender told Les Payne of The Star. 'Those are the expectations and I`m happy with that.`
Watching the Millers from the Tivoli at Millmoor as a boy, the twenty-two year old finally got his chance to lead out 'his` team in the friendlies over the last couple of weeks, although, Manager, Ronnie Moore, has yet to make his mind up who will be his captain for the season.
Speaking about his time watching the Millers, Ryan said, 'My favourites were Chris Swailes and Martin McIntosh. I used to think they were excellent. But, there was Alan Lee as well who scored plenty of goals.`
The former Sheffield United player is going to have to live up to his heroes of yesteryear as he tries to help Rotherham into League One and beyond but he says that coming to Rotherham is like 'coming home.`
'I got the interest from Rotherham and met Ronnie Moore and I really knew straight away that I wanted to sign.`
As a fan, I have to say, that I`m pleased that Ryan did decide to sign for the Millersaway that I wanted to sign.`
