Vital Rotherham on:
Rotherham United's latest 'incomer' Head of Academy Coaching Mike Sheron says he is really looking forward to his new job.
'It's something I've done before,' the former England U21 striker told MillersPlayer, 'but I said it was something I didn't want to go back into unless it was for a club that is showing a bit of progression and this is a club that definitely looks like it wants to progress forward.
'There's some talented players already in the system and it's something I want to try to help improve and get players through to the first team.'
Asked about working with Academy Manager Garreth Barker Mike said, 'I've come across Garreth before and I like the way he does things. He's very passionate about his football and he's a determined character which are traits that bode well for the lads we are trying to improve and progress here.'
Saying he's been here about a week, his first game was on Saturday against Doncaster Rovers which ended in a two-nil defeat. 'It's not all about the results. Of course you want to win games but it's more about the performances of individuals in a team environment and hopefully, they will impress enough, to progress to the reserves and then hopefully to the first team.'
And it's not only the first team that's been a bit ravaged through injury recently, Mike says they have only been able to train with ten or eleven players this past week, 'We've had to include a couple of under sixteen's this week but that's football for you.'
Speaking about his time since he stopped playing football, Mike said, 'I've been coaching for the last eight years. I started at Man City's academy, moved onto Bury where I was Youth team and Reserve team Manager, I did a year at Oldham and the last two and a bit years I've been at Liverpool's Academy which was a fantastic experience.
'Obviously Rotherham United haven't got the backing that the Premier League clubs have got but I don't think it's all about the backing, I believe it's the people who are in the system and everyone here seem to want to do their best for Rotherham United.'
