RUFC - Holroyd 'it's a new start'

Rotherham United striker, Chris Holroyd joined League One side Preston North End today for an undisclosed fee with the striker saying it will be a new start for him.

Twenty-five year old Chris joined the Millers in the summer from Bury but has only featured in nineteen games, mostly off the bench, his only goal coming in the two-nil win over Aldershot at Don Valley on Bonfire Night.

Speaking to the Official Site, Chris said, 'I was optimistic about my move here in pre-season, and I was looking forward to playing but unfortunately things haven't quite worked that way. It's one of those things in football where you just have to move on. It's a new start, and hopefully I can get some games under my belt.'

Chris will rejoin Graham Westley at Deepdale who was made manager of Preston this month and was Chris's Manager at Stevenage.

Millers Manager, Andy Scott says this is a deal that will benefit both parties, saying, 'Graham had Chris at Stevenage, and he was the first person he contacted me about when he got the Preston job. After much deliberation we decided it was a deal that would benefit Chris and ourselves. As soon as Chris heard that there was interest, he seemed keen on the deal, as he lives close to the area. With the form of Alex Revell and Lewis Grabban we just felt it was an offer the club couldn't turn down, and we would like to wish him all the best for the future.'
