Rotherham United welcome back an old face to the Millers with former player/Assistant Manager/Caretaker Manager John Breckin back working with the club - this time in the hospitality area.
Breck came through the youth ranks at Millmoor making his debut at the age of eighteen on New Year's Day 1972. John helped the Millers win promotion from Division Four in 1975 and was an ever present in the 1975/6 season and was captain of the team for the 1980/1 season when they got promoted again from Division Three while only letting in eight goals at home.
Since hanging his boots up Breck has also been Assistant Manager for the Millers with both Ronnie Moore and Mark Robins while also being caretaker Manager on a few occasions.
Speaking to MillersPlayer Breck says the job came out of the blue and he started working in the hospitality area for the game against Peterborough.
'My job is really to look after the people in the hospitality bit and keep things ticking over. Every home game we have an ex-player and it's my job to bring the legend in, introduce them to people and show them round the place. I'm really looking forward to it. I had Ken Houghton last time which was great for me because that's the team I was brought up with - in fact it broke my heart when Ken left, though he left for big, big money. It was that era that got me hooked on Rotherham United as a young boy so it was great to have Ken here for my debut so to speak.'
This week Breck will have two legends - and two local lads - to look after with Mark Rhodes (can you remember all that hair!) and John Green coming back.
Welcome Back again John! Personally, after hearing about the debacle with some former players who returned last season I can only think this is a brilliant move by the club and a big 'well done' to Commercial Director: Steve Coakley.
Don`t forget, you can also catch Vital Rotherham on Facebook and Twitter!
