RUFC - What of Brogan and Green?

RUFC - What of Brogan and Green?

Rotherham United have brought in four new players in the last couple of weeks - and are all very welcome I'm sure. But, it got me to thinking about what was happening to the players whose contracts weren't renewed at the end of last season?

In particular two lads who I always thought were Rotherham through and through - Stephen Brogan and Jamie Green.

Both defenders came through the Millers Youth system and both looked like they had promising careers ahead of them.

Stephen made his league debut for Rotherham in October 2005, when he came off the bench against MK Dons at the National Hockey Stadium.. The following season he made over twenty appearances and in the 2007/8 season he became an automatic choice for the left back spot. Unfortunately, he was involved in a terrible collision with MK Dons 'keeper, Willy Gueret which left him with a badly broken leg, keeping him out of the side for fourteen months. After that the twenty-three year old never really got back into the side and spent a month on loan in January with Stalybridge Celtic.

Jamie made his debut for the Millers in February 2008 when he played thirty minutes against Wycombe at Millmoor. He made nine appearances that season and will always be in the Rotherham United history books being the last player to score at Millmoor in the last game of the season against Barnet. Jamie played more than fifty games in the next two seasons while last season he played in three Johnstone's Paint Trophy games and just seven league games.

So, what are these two lads up to?

Well, I can't be certain but I've been told that Stephen could be spending the pre-season at Shrewsbury while, I understand, Jamie is mulling over five or six offers that he's had.

Be nice if these two could get on wouldn't it.

Because, to me, it just seems a little bit odd that Manager, Andy Scott, is fetching in new 'young' lads when he already had young lads in the squad who he could surely have moulded into what he wanted.

But, then again, I'm not a football manager!

i really wish these two were in our starting 11 not just the squad, 100% players with a fair bit of skill, good look to both of you. a mistake by andy scott i think with this pair, both of whom could come back and make him regret this
