RUFC - Andy 'delighted' over new contract

RUFC - Andy 'delighted' over new contract

Rotherham United have rewarded veteran goalkeeper, Andy Warrington with a new one-year deal that was signed and sealed this morning.

Andy joined the Millers in May 2007 and has made over two hundred appearances and was delighted with his new contract.

Speaking to MillersPlayer after putting pen to paper today, the thirty-six year old said, 'I think everyone knows how I feel about the club and with extending my stay into my sixth season, and coming back to Rotherham, is fantastic for me. I just want to be part of this new era here.'

Speaking about the start of the season when he had two loan 'keepers brought in over him, Andy said, 'What happened earlier in the season was out of my hands and I was very disappointing about the way it went. But, I can forget about that now and concentrate first of all on tomorrow's game and then coming back home to Rotherham and playing in the new stadium. I wasn't going anywhere under the previous manager but a new manager has come in and he's shown a lot of respect and told me that it's up to me to prove that I deserved to be here as well as wanted to be here. Obviously I've shown him that and a new contract has come about.

'I've worked really closely with Andy Dibble over the last four years and he's been fantastic with me. We have a really good working relationship and I think he's fought my corner. Possibly the former manager didn't listen to him but the new one has and here we are and I'm looking forward to a sixth season.'

Speaking about new Manager, Steve Evans, the former Doncaster Rovers shot stopper said, 'He brings with him a lot of enthusiasm and a willingness to win and he's very passionate. He's already had a great rapport with the fans and he's positive so the place is buzzing and going places.'

Speaking about his time with the Millers, Andy said, 'I played the last game at Millmoor and the first game at Don Valley and hopefully I'll play tomorrow in the last game at Don Valley and I'd like to play the first game in the new stadium which would be a great honour for me.

'I'm looking to get my head down in pre-season and get in that starting eleven come the first game of the season in August.'

Andy went on to thank the fans who, at the fans forum when it was announced that he had been given an extra years contract, stood up and gave a standing ovation (even though the goalkeeper wasn't there). 'I've had a lot of support over the last couple of months with my father dying from the fans and the club and to cap it off with the applause last night was fantastic. I'd like to say 'thank you' to all the fans for the support they've shown me, not only in the last couple of months, but this season when it's been difficult and also for the previous four or five years.'
