RUFC - Cress sad to leave

RUFC - Cress sad to leave

Rotherham United defender, Ryan Cresswell is sorry to be leaving the club he's grown up supporting.

Cress, who will be joining Southend United subject to a medical later this week, told Les Payne of The Star that he is disappointed not to be leading the Millers out at the New York Stadium.

Cress, who joined the Millers from Bury in the summer of 2010, played just thirty-three games in the last two seasons due to injury and managed just seventeen games last season, getting five goals. In his last game for Rotherham he was sent for an early bath after getting a second yellow card on seventy-four minutes for tripping Lewis Alessandra of Morecambe in the box.

Ryan scored in his first ever league game for Rotherham, getting the winning goal in the two-one win over Lincoln City at Don Valley in August 2010.

Always a Miller, the twenty-four year old defender spent his youth career with Sheffield United and while there played a handful of games on loan for Rotherham as well as having loan spells with Halifax, Morecambe and Macclesfield. Ryan spent two seasons with Bury before joining the Millers.

Saying he would be happy to see the Millers go up and even a get a double promotion, he said he leaves with 'some really good memories and cracking times.'

I, for one, am surprised that Steve Evans has let Cress go as he is one of type of players I think Evans is looking for - being a Rotherham lad and always having time for the fans he has always, in my mind, been a good ambassador for the club.

Good Luck Cress!
