RUFC - Thornber releases seven

Rotherham United's Head of Youth, Steve Thornber has made some tough decisions recently and has released several of the second year players

Speaking to MillersPlayer, Steve said, 'It's a difficult time but the reason behind it was that we couldn't see them progressing to the first team squad.

'You sign them at the start of the two years and you feel they've got something but, for some reason, they haven't kicked on. A couple of them I would say could make a living in non-league and we wish them all the best and and we move on.

'We've brought in seven players already for next season and we've just taken a goalkeeper from Bolton. He's played four games for us now and he's excelled in everyone. It's an area where we are strong this time. We've got Jack Leyden who's already moved up with the first team when Andy Warrington was injured and he's an excellent size and we've got high hopes for him.

'We've also got a lad on trial from Sheffield Wednesday and we've got a couple of friendly games coming up so we'll see how he does.

'We had our third win in a row on Saturday. It's been a frustrating season really but it gives you hope for next season when you see the lads who we've signed for next year coming in and perform well.

'Chesterfield came the other week only needing a draw to win the League and they came with the champagne and the camera's and we comprehensively beat them three-nil which was a great confidence boost for the lads and the new Manager, Andy Scott, was there to see it so that was a good thing as well. This week we were three-nil up in fifteen minutes and I thought here we go it's going to be a cricket score! We played some really good stuff but we gave away some silly goals and they came back to three-all but we managed to get a goal and hold on for four-three. So it was a really strong and pleasing end to the season.'

Rotherham are in tenth place in the North East Conference Table
