Daniel Nardiello

Coventry born striker Daniel was a product of the Wolverhampton Wanderers Academy but went as a trainee to Manchester United, who were ordered to pay Wolves £200,000 as compensation. He made his debut for United in the Worthington Cup in 2001 and the following season played in a UEFA Champions League game. While with Manchester United Daniel had loan spells with Swansea and Barnsley before signing a two year contract with the Tykes in the summer of 2005. In June 2007 he turned down a new contract at Oakwell and moved to QPR before returning to Barnsley in January 2008 on loan. In July he signed for Blackpool but suffered a couple of injuries and had loan spells with Hartlepool, Bury and Oldham. In July 2010 Daniel signed for Exeter City signing a longer contract the following summer.

Daniel signed for the Millers last summer with reports that there were a few League One clubs after him but said he chose Rotherham because the club was 'going places' and that he felt 'exciting times' were ahead.

Nards came to the Millers to score goals and score goals he did - twenty in all, nineteen in the league and one in the FA Cup replay against Notts County.

He will be remembered in the Rotherham United history books as the first player to score a league goal at the New York Stadium - at four minutes past three on 18th August from the penalty spot.

Nards ended the season as the Millers top scorer and third highest scorer in League Two.
