RUFC - Tavs 'I've Loved It Here'
Rotherham United loanee James Tavernier says that he will always remember his Wembley appearance with the Millers.
Speaking after the Millers got promoted to the Championship on Sunday, the twenty-two year old told Radio Sheffield, 'It's just fantastic for the club, for me personally and for the fans. Amazing.
'We always felt that we'd be strong in the play-offs and we dominated against Preston. And we knew today that if we scored Leyton Orient would be worried. We've got a great spirit and we don't know when to stop and we keep going every minute of the game. But the key thing is that we all work for each other and we go out as a team and even the people who came off the bench had an effect on the game.'
Speaking about the penalty shoot-out, Tavs said, 'It's unfortunate that Frecks missed his penalty but Adam's pulled off two great saves and we managed to score the rest of them.
'It's going to be an exciting year next year.'
Asked about his situation with his parent club Newcastle, Tavs said, 'I've got a year left there and I've just got to see what happens in the summer. I've been there a long time and I've got to have a conversation with Newcastle and take it from there.
'But what I want is to be part of a regular team where I can start every game. When I came here I told the Gaffer that I'd do my best and he put a lot of faith in us and being here has progressed me a lot. I've loved it here and the fans have been terrific.'
When Millers Manager Steve Evans was asked about the Bradford born right-back/midfielder, he said, 'Tavs is such a good lad and he's made it clear that if it can be worked out then he'd love to stay but we have to respect that he is still Alan Pardew's player up at Newcastle.'
