RUFC - Boss's Praise For Players

RUFC - Boss's Praise For Players

Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans saw two players make their debut for the Millers today and had good words to say about them as well as two of the stalwarts in the side

'I thought Prings (Ben Pringle) was excellent today,` Steve told Radio Sheffield, 'and we all know what Jaybo does (Jason Taylor). I keep saying to Jaybo every day 'you can`t play` but he`s got a big heart, loads of energy and is a big character in the dressing room. He`s always talking, always got an opinion and we like Jaybo as a person.`

Making his debut on loan from Aston Villa was nineteen year old wide man, Courtney Cameron with Evans commenting, ''I thought young Courtney was excellent. Technically he`s very good but there are two sides to him. He`s got a great desire but a word I`d use, at times, is naivety. I've seen him mature the last year at Aston Villa and we had to work hard to get him here because Paul Lambert likes him. But I've persevered for two or three weeks and thankfully we`ve got him.`

Also making his debut yesterday, albeit for two minutes, was Nicky Walker who has come through the youth ranks with the Millers and Evans said, 'Young Nicky has been doing really well in the Reserves and it was fitting for nearly seven thousand people here today to see a young man and, if he keeps developing and keeps having the attitude that he`s had for weeks, they will see more of him as the season unfolds.`

It`s great to see the youth players getting a run out isn't it. I was a bit peeved last week when, in an interview, Evans gave the impression that he`d rather play with only half a bench than take the young lads to Dagenham. Surely the youngsters would only get the benefit of travelling with the first team?

And I can`t say enough about Courtney Cameron. He came out for the warm out in his 'premiership` boots with his 'premiership` hair-do and we all thought 'yes, well…` but he was excellent. He didn't seem to bother that two of the Cheltenham players were biting at his feet and trying to put him off his stride, he just went by them like the weren't there. OK, he got tired towards the end of the game but he`d certainly put in a shift.
