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

RUFC - Newey 'it's been a tough year'

Rotherham United defender, Tom Newey says he was 'pleased to be back` as new Manager, Steve Evans brought him 'in from the cold` where he`d been, more or less, since Andy Scott came to the Millers.

The twenty-nine year old joined the Millers in the summer of 2010 from Bury and hadn`t started a game since the FA Cup loss against Shrewsbury in December.

Speaking to David Beddows of The Advertiser, Tom said, 'It`s been a tough year for me personally.

'Have I had a fair crack of the whip? It`s hard to say but I`ve never wanted to leave the club. I have enjoyed my time here but it just didn`t work out under Andy Scott for whatever reason. Some managers like you, some don`t. Andy Scott obviously didn`t like me, whether it was football or personal, I don`t really know.

'But, that`s all in the past now. There`s a new manager who has given me a game and hopefully that will continue. I`ve played against Steve Evans` sides in the past and maybe he saw something he liked. He gave me the nod but this week it could change.

Former caretaker manager, Darren Patterson had praised Newey`s work in training and Tom said, 'I have tried to keep myself as fit as possible. I got the chance and just went out there and gave everything. I was disappointed with the result because we played some decent stuff at times but generally it is encouraging.`
