RUFC - Marshall and Banks leave Millers

RUFC - Marshall and Banks leave Millers

Rotherham United have released Ollie Banks and Marcus Marshall today.

Both, who have been out on loan this season, were told by manager, Steve Evans this afternoon that their contracts would not be renewed.

Speaking to MillersPlayer Evans said, `Some supporters may be questioning why Marcus Marshall is moving on. Really he hasn`t had a lot of game time though we did assess him while he was playing at Macclesfield. But the supporters will have to trust and judge who we are going to bring in. Marcus is a young man who has conducted himself great this week while we`ve had a chance to have a real close look at him. He came in for a chat and we made our decision and he will move on with our best wishes.

'Young Ollie Banks hasn`t featured a lot. He`s a local boy with a fantastic attitude and it was hard telling him but we had him assessed at his loan club and we got him in and played him at midfield and full-back hoping something was there but it wasn`t to be. As a manager it is one of the hardest things you have to do and we`ve told him to go away and prove us wrong and we wish him every success.

'Of the two I think Marcus is the most frustrating of the two. He`s got everything in the locker on his day but, as a club we`ve got ambitions of fighting for promotion next year, and one good day in five or six isn`t enough. The reports we`ve had are that one week you are looking at a top player and the following week you are looking at someone who`s not. But that comes with youth and if he works hard he can get that consistency factor.

'We will help both players and speak to other managers at Conference level and will try our best to make sure those kids have a future.`

The Millers boss also said that some of the loan players had gone back to their parent clubs early and Evans said, 'You have to give some of the Rotherham United players a chance who have contracts here.

'Sam Wood, Kieron Cadogan and Scott Griffiths have all made their way back to their parent club although Scotty is still on stand-by for the weekend so he will be training under Darren Ferguson at Peterborough tomorrow. We thank the lads for their service here and wish them every success.

'What`s right with these players is that we treat them properly and with professionalism. If they were going to come here and train tomorrow and then go to Don Valley on Saturday and sit in the stand and it`s not your parent club you`re sitting there with, you will probably think your manager and training staff haven`t been very professional with you, which we said, from the minute we came in, is what we`d do.`
