Alex Revell

After leaving Cambridge United Alex joined Braintree Town in Essex helping them gain promotion to the Conference South. Alex moved to Brighton and Hove Albion in the summer of 2006 scoring his first professional hat-trick on New Years Day 2008 against Bournemouth. Four weeks later Alex he moved to Southend for £150,000 and he had established himself in the first team when, a year later, he fell awkwardly and broke his leg ruling him out until the next season. He went out on loan to Swindon Town before having a three-month loan with Wycombe Wanderers and, although he was offered a contract with the Chairboys Alex signed for Leyton Orient in July 2010 where he played forty-nine games scoring sixteen goals.

Former Manager Andy Scott brought Alex to the Millers and he scored two goals on his debut against Swindon Town in September 2011.

In that first season Revs went on to score eleven goals in forty-six appearances for Rotherham and has got six goals this season.

In a goalless draw with Barnet in September Alex saw his first ever red card when a bit of a reckless challenge on David Stephens ten minutes from time got him an early bath.

With Revs seemingly attracting interest from clubs in higher leagues than the Millers the twenty-nine year old striker was offered and accepted a deal in April which saw Alex commit his future to the Millers for another two years.

Alex was named the clubs Player of the Year as well as being Vital Rotherhams Player of the Season.
