'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - Wood 'Happy to be here'

Rotherham United have confirmed that winger, Sam Wood has joined until 9th January 2012 from Brentford.

The twenty-five year old has worked with Manager, Andy Scott before and speaking to MillersPlayer said, 'I haven't had a look-in at Brentford and I've worked with Scotty before and he was interested in strengthening the team and with the injury on Saturday and he wanted to get me up here as soon as possible.

'Originally Scotty picked me up from non-league and gave me my chance at league football. In my first season we got promotion and I got Player of the Year as well so it was a good start for me. We've always stayed friends and kept in contact.'

Asked what he could bring to the side, the former Bromley player said, 'I went to Brentford as a left-back and ended up being a left midfielder. I can play mainly down the left but I can play wide-right as well.

'I'm here for the month and I'm going to do what I can for Rotherham. The aim is to win as many games as possible, get Rotherham up there and hopefully something might come at the end of it in January. They've got the players to get in the play-offs, even automatic places. I'm happy and can't wait to get started.

'Saturday will be a tough game, but this league is tough, but I'm sure Rotherham are good enough to be up there.'

Sam began his career with English semi-professional club, Cray Wanderers where his claim to fame was scoring the in the two-nil win that put an end to AFC Wimbledon's seventy-eight game unbeaten run in the 2003/4 season. Sam moved to Bromley in 2005 where he played over one hundred and fifty games and scored twenty-one goals.

Sam joined Brentford in May 2008 and playing on the left wing was the supporters' Player of the Year. The following season he proved he could play on either wing or even at left-back.
