RUFC - The six who aren't wanted

RUFC - The six who aren't wanted

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott had the unenviable job yesterday of telling six first team players that they were no longer needed.

Defender Luke Ashworth joined the Millers last summer from Leyton Orient on a free transfer and has played just thirteen times.

Stephen Brogan came through the youth system at Rotherham making his league debut against MK Don in October 2005. In the seasons that followed Paddy became a regular and it was rumoured that clubs from the Premiership were becoming interested in him. In February 2009 he suffered a dreadful injury - a double fracture of his leg - in a collision with the MK Dons' 'keeper, Willy Gueret. He spent fourteen months on the sidelines and since then, although has had glowing reports from the reserve games, he's hardly made an appearance for the first team, featuring just four times this season, although he did have a loan spell with Stalybridge Celtic in January.

Jamie Green - like Paddy, Jamie came through the Youth system at Rotherham and made his league debut in February 2008 at Wycombe and will always be in the Millers' history books as being the last Rotherham United player to score at Millmoor. Jamie has made sixty-two appearances for the Millers which include ten this season. He went on record last week as saying he would love to stop with the Millers.

Grant Darley - came through the Youth system with the Millers and despite being on the bench for a couple of games, hasn't made it in to the first team.

Kevin Ellison - Liverpool born Kevin joined the Millers from Chester City in July 2009. He scored eleven goals in the forty-seven games he played last season for Rotherham, including one in the League Two Play-Off semi-final against Aldershot. He played twenty-seven times for the Millers this season scoring four goals before being loaned out to Bradford City in February for the remainder of the season. Vital Rotherham sponsored Kevin's kit this season after he was voted Vital Player of the Year last season.

Nick Fenton - Nick signed for Rotherham in August 2008 from Grimsby Town, playing more than one hundred games. He made his Millers debut against neighbours Sheffield Wednesday where he was arguably the Man of the Match and was one of the first names on the team sheet for the next couple of years. This season Nick has played thirty-six games, scoring three goals.

Vital Rotherham wish the above players all the best for their future

Meanwhile of the six players that have been offered extensions to their current contracts, it is understood that both Dale Tonge and Jason Taylor are mulling over their new deals which are thought to be at reduced terms.
