RUFC - On this day ....

Rotherham United are getting ready for their FA Cup encounter with Shrewsbury Town at the weekend, but what was happening on this day in times gone past ….


29 November 2010

This time last year the Millers were flying high in fifth place of League Two, having won two, lost two and drawn three of their games in November.

November saw Vital Rotherham have three men of the month - Ryan Cresswell, Ryan Taylor and Marcus Marshall had been voted Man of the Match in two games each with on-loan player, Danny Coid, getting the vote for the game against Crewe.

29 November 2009

It was on this day that we found out, if we beat Luton Town, in a replay in the FA Cup, our next game would be away at Southampton - of course, that never happened ….

29 November 2008

The Millers were awarded the 'Team of the Round Award' in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy after their win over Leicester City. The Millers won the game two-nil at Don Valley with goals from Drewe Broughton and Dale Tonge.

The team against Leicester was - Warrington, Tonge, Sharps, Fenton, Nicholas, Mills, Cummins (Hudson), Harrison, Rhodes, Garcia, Broughton.

29 November 2007

On this day four years ago, Mark Robins, was awarded Manager of the Month after four straight wins took the Millers from eighth to third in the League.

29th November 2006

It was on this day that Alan Knill singled out Stephen Brogan for a special mention after he scored for the Reserves earlier in the week. The manager describes him as an 'aggressive type of player who likes to get his foot in where it hurts.' The Reserves had beaten Huddersfield Reserves at the Galpharm with Dave Hibbert scoring the first goal.

Rotherham United 1 Leeds United 0

Rotherham United got their first league victory of the season on this Monday night at Millmoor against Leeds United with a goal from Martin McIntosh on seventy-seven minutes.

Much was the relief by all in red and white that night that anyone would have thought that the league title had been won instead of just a league game!

The West Yorkshire side must have felt like they'd been robbed after hitting the woodwork three times in the opening ten minutes of this game and Mike Pollitt was much the busier of the two 'keepers throughout the game.

The goal came about after the Millers got a free-kick which was floated in by Paul McLaren which McIntosh headed down to Richie Barker. Barker's back heel found McIntosh and he swept the ball home to give the Millers a great win.
