RUFC - A re-cap of who's in and who's out

Rotherham United will have at least seven new players in the first team squad going into the start of the season, who Manager, Andy Scott has signed in the last few weeks.

With the season just four weeks away, let's have a quick re-cap on who has come in and gone out - up to now.

Gareth Evans joined at the beginning of June. The 6' striker has played for Crewe Alexandra, Macclesfield Town and Bradford City.

Also in June Nantwich born striker, Chris Holroyd, joined. The twenty-four year old began his career with Chester before moving to Cambridge and then to Brighton and Hove Albion, from where he was released at the end of last season after loan spells with Stevenage and Bury.

On the same day, defender, Luke Foster joined from Stevenage. Luke was born in Mexborough began his career with Sheffield Wednesday before moving to Lincoln City, Stalybridge Celtic, Oxford, Mansfield and Stevenage. The twenty-five year old has also played for the England C team.

Andy Scott has said that there could be at least one more player on the way before the season starts.

Of the players who have left the Millers Nicky Law has gone over the border to Motherwell in Scotland. Nicky was with Rotherham for two seasons playing one hundred games and scoring five goals. Nicky was in the PFA League Two Team of the Year for the last two seasons.

Striker Ryan Taylor has moved to Championship side Bristol City after coming through the youth ranks with the Millers. He scored twenty-four goals for the Millers including two at Wembley in the League Two Play-Off final. Tayls has signed a three year deal with City for an undisclosed sum.

Ian Thomas-Moore and the Millers parted company last month by mutual agreement. Thirty-four year old Ian has yet to find a club.

Also moving on is Kevin Ellison who has signed a one year deal with Morecambe. The thirty-two year old winger joined the Millers from Chester City in the summer of 2009 and he made over seventy appearances scoring fifteen goals in all competitions.

Stephen Brogan, Jamie Green and Grant Darley were three other players who didn't have their contracts renewed at the end of last season.
