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

RUFC - Evans wanted to see season out with Crawley

Rotherham United`s new Manager, Steve Evans met the players yesterday and said that he knew the Millers squad 'inside out`.

Speaking to Ian Appleyard of the Yorkshire Post Evans admitted that, in an ideal world, he`d have waited until the summer to take over the reigns of Rotherham United.

But, as we know, that didn`t happen, and he appeared at Don Valley to, shall we say, a smattering of applause on Monday afternoon to see his new team win with a late header from club captain, and Rotherham born and bred, Ryan Cresswell.

Evans had been with Crawley Town since May 2007 and they are considered a good bet to go up into League One, making it their second promotion in two years.

'I think Rotherham and I were both happy for me to see the Crawley project through until the end of the season,` Evans said. 'But, the owners felt that if my head was turned towards Rotherham United then I wouldn`t have full focus on the job.`

Soon after Evans departed the Broadfield Stadium for Rotherham, Crawley appointed Steve Coppell as director of football with Evans saying, 'I was privy to the knowledge that Steve would be coming on board and I`m absolutely delighted for the club, delighted for the fans and I think it`s a really good, true appointment.

'I had a wonderful time working for Crawley and worked for some fantastic people and I just hope I can emulate that success at Rotherham United.`

Evans has been given a three-year contract with the Millers and, after meeting the players yesterday, his first job was to go to Middlesbrough to watch the Reserve team, who were beaten two-nil.
